How to Change Your Kirby Surface Nozzle

You Will Need:

  • A Kirby Upright Cleaner


  1. Make sure your vacuum is unplugged. On newer models, disengage the TechDrive feature by placing the pedal in the “Neutral” position. Press the height adjustment pedal to its lowest position in order to raise the power nozzle to its highest level.
  2. Raise the light hood and open the L-shaped handle of the belt lifter. Use the handle to rotate the lifter all the way left (counterclockwise), aligning the red arrows.
  3. Unlock the power nozzle by rotating the accessory lock to the left (counterclockwise). The entire surface nozzle unit will tip forward and detach from the rest of the vacuum.
