That's a nice machine. I have the same model. Mine has the original power nozzle that matches the machine. Congrats on a quiet and efficient machine.

I can send you a Kirby in cannister mode. That way you can say you have an upright.
Liking the vacuums and the manual always makes it complete.

To stop the bag squeak

To stop bag squeak do not remove the tab off the bag, that keeps it from making that noise.

You painted the sheath? It looked like it matched the hose and was fine. I noticed the tape on the sheath is it damaged? If the lower wand wonít stay in thatís because the clip to hold the together is bent and it can be adjusted so this doesnít happen and you donít have to tape it. I donít know about you but Iím not a big fan of having things taped together, I prefer to repair the issue making things work properly.

I havenít had great luck with painting stuff, tend to chip off and then look bad so I learned my lesson the hard way on that . At least most of what you have painted can be replaced if they end up a mess.

Hope it works out for you though.

Jon

What year was the Model 89 made ??

i see 50s 60s or 70s im comfuse ?


Post# 433162 , Reply# 37   10/6/2020 at 19:39 by Jo (Dallas,TX)        
I think itís 60ís

Not sure on the Canadian models but this is very similar to the US model G which was out from 1961-1968. I know these 89ís had a long long run and were continued longer after the G was replaced by the 1205. Your tools though date back to the XXX style but it seems Electrolux of Canada didnít change to the flip over rug and floor tool in 1953 That was introduced on the US model E so those 40s style rug and floor tools were continued in the older style on the 89.
