Will a Sentria Brushroll fit in a G4 brush head?

Not quite: the magnet for the brush indicator light on the G3/G4 and G5/Avalir II brush rolls will be in a different position depending on the models involved.

The G3/G4 nozzle had the indicator light on the side of the nozzle where the toe-touch control is, while that for the G5/Avalir II had it on the side facing the bag.

Part numbers of the revolving brush assemblies:
156293 = for G3 and G4, brush indicator light magnet is on side of brush roll facing toe-touch control
152502 = for G5 to Avalir II, brush indicator light magnet is on side of brush roll facing bag
152505 = for G5 to Avalir II (stiffer bristles), same attributes as 152502

Hope this helps you!

The Sentria brushroll will fit and function in the G4, but the green indicator LED on the nozzle will not light up to indicate when the brushroll is spinning.

BoJack horseman vacuum service.

It will fit with some modifications. You can pull the end caps off and switch them. Then you can pull one brush off by the belt . But this is real Bojack. Highly recommend going with the correct part numbers listed above!
