I have 2 sentrias. I took apart replaced fan replaced roller belt bag hose. When I put back together I didn't seal fan case or glue white plastic piece next to emptor. Both vacuum cleaners turn on and both have the motor on high speed. I was wondering if you had any ideas for me.

Check the area around the safety switch, make sure you donít have anything caught there.

Personally I donít care to remove the front fan housing on any G series Kirby, I always get to the fan by taking the motor out. Iím sure I must be a glutton for punishment or something to do that, or I just loathe dealing with the sealant on the fan case...

The belt lifter screw was misplaced and replacement screw was rubbing shaft. Just need right screw and washer and it's running fine now.
