The conversion of Amps to Watts is governed by the equation
Watts = Amps x Volts

For example 1 amp @ 110 volts = 110 watts
your case 7 amp @ 120 volts = 840 watts
unless you are running it at 230v but I don't think you can
I would look for one rated for Volt-Amps instead of watts
It's best to round up to be safe add 40 - 60 watts

P over I x E is what you are asking... We know that I (Current) = 7 and the E (Volts) = 120 so just multiply I x E and you get P (Wattage). So 7 x 120 would be 1400 (Watts).

European cord part number 890901. Using a home fix to get the vacuume to work can cause blown fuses and electrical shock if not grounded properly. The European corn replacement is the right way to go.

But can the motor handle 220v? I got the European power cord and it is simple to switch out, but when I spoke to someone from Kirby they indicated that the motor could not handle 220v and would need to be swapped out.

Make sure the emptor at the. Bottom of the bag assembly is turned all the way clockwise. It pushes in on lever on the switch. It won't run if the lever is not pushed all the way.

### Hose for G3 Kirby doesn't fit Sentria

Yes G3 and G4 had different gasket thus the suction blower connector connecting Kirby hose to the unit on later models is different. You do not need to replace entire hose but just the plastic part that connects to the vacuum. You can find it HERE. To remove old connector you may have to submerge the end of the hose into hot water (not to hot to touch) so the vinyl becomes soft and you can bend it in with finger bringing plastic end over the lip on the molded end of the hose.

Good Luck

### Kirby Manual

The spray gun instruction HERE but be very careful - try shampooing in an inconspicuous area first. This is essentially as if you would buy some of those "spray on" upholstery cleaners in an aerosol cans.

Good Luck,

### Wattage rating for Kirby Ultimate G

Wattage rating for Kirby Ultimate G
Posted by avhawaii on May 19, 2008
Does anyone know what the wattage is on a Kirby Ultimate G? I'm moving to the UK and need to know what size transformer to buy! Thanks

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. My suggestion is that you contact the Kirby Co in Cleveland listed below and they will instruct you on the wattage and also what you need for a transformer, or look underneath the vacuum and there should be a sticker stating the amps and maybe the watts, but also the information may be in the owner’s manual or they will mail one out to you, there might be a local Kirby dealer in your area that might have a manual as well. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
