disengaged, the Sentria system can be used as a straight suction
cleaner (page 13), and;
2)To allow removal of the Power Nozzle when converting your Sentria
system for use with various attachments and optional accessories.
To avoid damaging the belt, turn the Sentria system OFF before using
the Belt Lifter. ➤

Flip out the handle on the Belt Lifter . Use it to turn the Belt
Lifter fully to the left (counter-clockwise) until it stops and the
red arrows line up. This stretches the belt and lifts it off the motor
shaft. Return the handle on the Belt Lifter to its closed position.
If you are using your Sentria® system as a straight suction cleaner,
simply lower the Headlight Hood. The Brush Roll is now disengaged
and will not rotate when the power switch is turned ON. ➤

period. Make sure the green arrows line up for storage. ➤
5
Your Sentria system is equipped with a Brush Roll Performance
Indicator Light ⑦, located on the top right side of the Power
Nozzle. The purpose of this light is to show if the Brush Roll is
rotating properly.
If the Brush Roll Indicator Light flashes intermittently or does not come
on when using the Power Nozzle, the Brush Roll Belt may not be working
properly. Either the Belt is not engaged or may need to be replaced.
To replace the Brush Roll Belt, also called the Power Nozzle Belt,
see Page 40. ❏
Do not pick up heavy objects, such as coins, screws, rocks or similar

WHEEL WEAR/ REPLACEMENT
Kirby®wheels are made with a pliable tread that is designed to prevent
carpet wear and prevent damage to non-carpeted floors. After extended
periods of use, the tread on the wheels will wear out and the wheels will
need to be replaced.
Check wheel tread occasionally to determine if the wheels need to be
replaced. The tread material is lighter in color than the plastic wheel
itself. If any of the darker plastic wheel is showing through the tread,
the wheels need to be replaced. The wheels are not user-replaceable.

courteous wheel replacement. ❏
CORD REPLACEMENT
If the electrical cord connecting the Sentria® system to the outlet
becomes cut or frayed over time, DO NOT USE THE UNIT. Contact
your authorized Kirby® Service Center immediately for replacement.
Avoid damage to your cord by being careful not to run over it with your
Sentria system. Also, unplug your unit by grasping the plug at the end
of the cord rather than pulling on the cord itself. ❏
HEADLIGHT REPLACEMENT
If one or more of the three LED lights in your Headlight Assembly
burn out, please contact your authorized Kirby® Distributor for
replacement. ❏
SERVICE TIP
Keep the entire Brush Roll and belt track clear of lint, string, hair and
other debris build-up. This will allow the Brush Roll to perform at its

Questions and Answers/Troubleshooting
QWHAT IS A DOUBLE-INSULATED MACHINE? (Servicing of double-insulated appliances)
A In a double-insulated appliance, two systems of insulation are provided instead of grounding. No
grounding means is necessary on a double-insulated appliance, nor should a means for grounding be added
to the appliance. A double-insulated appliance is marked with the words “DOUBLE-INSULATED”
(U.S.A. and Canada). The symbol ( square within a square) may also be marked on the appliance.
Servicing a double-insulated appliance requires extreme care and knowledge of the system and
should be done only by qualified service personnel.
Replacement parts for this double-insulated Sentria® model must be genuine Kirby® parts for
maintenance of safety and protection of warranty.
QWHAT SHOULD I DO IF THE MOTOR DOES NOT RUN WHEN I TURN THE Sentria SYSTEM ON?
A Many service calls are unnecessary. Checking a few simple things can save a lot of cost, time and
trouble. Whenever your Sentria system does not perform properly, make these checks first before
calling authorized service personnel.
IF THE MOTOR DOES NOT RUN WHEN THE MOTOR ON-OFF SWITCH IS PUSHED:
1. Make sure the Power Cord is plugged into an outlet and that the outlet has power. (Check for a blown fuse, tripped circuit breaker or power company trouble.)
2. Make sure the cord plug is fully inserted into the unit.
3. Look for breaks in the Power Cord insulation. If the cord is damaged, get a new one. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPAIR IT. Use only a genuine Kirby® Power Cord.
Do not use standard extension cords.
4. Make sure that an attachment or accessory is properly mounted on the front of the Power Plant. The unit will not run without the Power Nozzle , Hose Coupling, Air Intake Guard or Accessory Brush Nozzle in place.
5. The unit will not operate without either a Filtration Bag Assembly/ Mini Em-Tor® collector ⑥, Attachment Hose or Carpet Shampoo Tank properly installed on the Air Exhaust Port ⑲.
6. The Filtration Bag Assembly/Mini Em-Tor collector, Attachment Hose or Carpet Shampoo Tank must “click” firmly into place for the unit to operate. If the fitting is too tight and you have difficulty
installing the above, apply a small drop of water to the gasket to reduce friction and ease installation.
QWHAT SHOULD I DO IF THE Sentria SYSTEM DOES NOT PICK UP LINT OR DIRT ON THE CARPET?
A l. Check to see if the Brush Roll is turning, when the Sentria system is running.
2. If the Brush Roll is not turning freely, the belt is slipping, broken or not on the Motor Shaft .
3. If the belt is not on the Motor Shaft , remove the nozzle and follow the instructions on page 16. See page 42 for bristle extension.
4. If the belt is in good condition and the brush is running, check for bristle wear and replace Brush Roll, if necessary.
To check for wear, turn the Power Nozzle over and place a ruler against the metal Rug Plate. If the bristles are below or just touching the ruler, the Brush Roll should be adjusted. See page 42 for details.
5. Make sure that the nozzle height is adjusted to place the brush in contact with the carpet. Use the Toe-Touch Control to adjust as appropriate. See page 7.
6. Check the bag to see if it is full.
7. Check the fill tube for clogging.

Operating/Maintenance Tips
Questions and Answers/Troubleshooting
QI SMELL BURNING RUBBER WHEN I USE MY Sentria® SYSTEM WHAT SHOULD I DO?
A1. Check to see if the Brush Roll is turning when the Sentria system is running. If not, then the Brush Roll may be stalled due to threads around the ends. Remove Brush Roll and make sure it rotates freely at both ends.
2. The belt may not be fully engaged (or disengaged). Make sure the green arrows or red arrows on the Belt Lifter ⑳ match up fully.
3. If a slipping belt has deposited a black residue on the Motor Shaft , remove it gently using steel wool or sandpaper and replace the belt.
QHOW DO I VACUUM MY MATTRESS?
Al. Leave sheet or mattress cover on bed to protect mattress from snags.
2. Convert your upright Sentria system to a Portable Cleaner. See “Portable Cleaning” on page 14.
3. Place Portable Cleaner on the mattress.
4. Disengage Tech Drive® power assist by pressing the gray “N” side (marked “N” for Neutral) of the N/D Pedal ⑪.
5. Disengage the Brush Roll.
6. Plug in your Sentria system and turn it ON.
7. Lower the Power Nozzle by pressing the Toe-Touch Control Upper Pedal ⑧ until
it is all the way down.
8. Begin vacuuming.
QHOW DO I VACUUM MY CARPETED STAIRS?
AThere are several different ways. You can use:
• the Portable Cleaner. (See page 15.)
• the Zippbrush. (See page 39.) • or the Upholstery Nozzle. (See page 18.)
QHOW DO I CLEAN UNDER MY BED?
AYour Sentria system can be used in the canister mode (see page 16) with the Surface Nozzle
to vacuum under the bed and other low furniture. When bending to vacuum under low
furniture, be sure to keep hair, loose clothing, fingers and all parts of body away from
unit openings and moving parts..
IMPORTANT: Always exercise caution when vacuuming stairways.

Operating/Maintenance Tips
Questions and Answers/Troubleshooting
QHOW DO I VACUUM MY UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE?
A1.Convert to a canister. (See page 16.) (Do not use Power Nozzle on furniture.)
2. Use the Attachment Hose with or without the following attachments:
• the Upholstery Nozzle.
• the optional Zippbrush.
• the Crevice Tool with the brush removed. (Use in between seat cushions and in crevices.)
The optional Zippbrush uses rotating brushes to agitate fibers and remove imbedded dirt and pet
hair from the fabric. When using the Zippbrush, move it slowly from side to side across surface.
Do not apply heavy pressure as it will slow the brush action. (If the brush becomes jammed and
stops turning, simply rotate the inner rotating brush clockwise to free it up and let go. It should
then resume turning.)
To clean hard-to-reach upholstery buttons, use narrow tip of the Zippbrush, located on the side
opposite the hose, to work the dirt loose. (For additional information on the use and maintenance
of the optional Zippbrush, see the Zippbrush section on page 39).
QHOW DO I CLEAN MY WALLS AND CEILING?
A1. Convert to a canister. (See page 16.)
2. Attach one or two Extension Tubes to the Attachment Hose by inserting the hose into the Extension Tube opening and twisting to lock in place.
3. Attach the Suction Control Grip onto the end of the Extension Tube.
4. Attach the Wall & Ceiling Brush to the end of the Suction Control Grip. The Suction Control Grip not only allows you to regulate airflow, it also allows you to adjust the Wall & Ceiling Brush to the proper angles for mantles, window ledges, walls and ceilings.
QHOW DO I CLEAN MY CAR?
AYour Sentria® system comes equipped with a range of tools to help you clean your car. In addition, you may also use the optional Zippbrush for vacuuming automobile upholstery, carpeting, floor mats and trunks. (See Zippbrush section on page 39 for Zippbrush use and maintenance information.)
1. Convert to a canister. (See page 16.)
2. You can use the end of the Attachment Hose for straight suction or attach any one of a variety of tools.
3. We suggest using the Upholstery Nozzle (or optional Zippbrush) to clean the seats, areas under the seats and the trunk.
4. Use the Crevice Tool (with or without the small Crevice Tool brush end) for small, hard-to-reach areas, such as the area between the windshield and dash and the area between the seats.
5. Use the Duster Brush to clean the instrument panel.
6. Use the Utility Tool to pick up gravel and heavy particles on floor mats and carpeting.

Operating/Maintenance Tips
Questions and Answers/Troubleshooting
QHOW DO I CLEAN OTHER HOME FURNISHINGS?
ABooks and Bookcases:
1. Convert to a canister. (See page 16.)
2. Attach the Duster Brush to the end of the Attachment Hose and “dust” the books and bookcase.
3. Other options include using an Extension Tube with the Duster Brush or the Wall & Ceiling Brush to dust the bookcase top.
Lampshades and Pictures:
1. Convert to a canister. (See page 16.)
2. Attach the Duster Brush to the Suction Control Grip. Then connect the grip to the Attachment Hose. Test the airflow by regulating the Suction Control Valve on the Suction Control Grip before you dust your lampshades. Dust glass-covered artwork and picture frames.
Narrow Openings:
1. Convert to a canister. (See page 16.)
2. Attach the Duster Brush to the Suction Control Grip. Then connect the grip to the Attachment Hose. Test the air-flow by regulating the Suction Control Valve on the Suction Control Grip before you dust your home electronics.
3. Connect the Inflator/Deflator tool to the end of the Attachment Hose to dust hard-to-reach small spaces.
Wicker Furniture and Baskets:
1. Convert to a canister. (See page 16.)
2. Attach the Duster Brush to the end of the Attachment Hose. Your Duster Brush works well between cracks and c revices on wicker and other irregular surfaces.
Drapes and Blinds:
1. Convert to a canister. (See page 16.)
2.For drapes, attach one or two Extension Tubes to the Attachment Hose. Connect the Suction
Control Grip to the Extension Tube and then connect the Upholstery Nozzle (with the faceplate
attached). Test the air-flow by regulating the Suction Control Valve on the Suction Control Grip
before you dust your drapes and blinds.
The Suction Control Valve on the Suction Control Grip regulates airflow and prevents you from
pulling the drapes off the curtain rods.
For blinds, follow a similar procedure using the Duster Brush instead of the Upholstery Nozzle.
If using the Suction Control Grip, make sure to completely close the Suction Control Valve to
maintain maximum airflow.
QWHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY FILTER BAG SMELLS?
AChange it. Replace the disposable bag when the dirt reaches the fill line. Do not overfill.
1.You may also purchase Odorific® II, an odorizer that leaves your room smelling clean and
fresh. Place a few drops on a cottonball and toss it in the Outer Permanent Bag. For a list of
other fine Kirby® products, (see page 48 and 49.)
