    • good vac with missing tools
      Verified Purchase

      The vacuum arrived on time and in good condition but the following parts were missing: surface nozzle, air intake guard, inflator/deflator tool, portable sprayer, portable shampooer. And, yes, the product description says "Kirby G4 vacuum loaded with tools". So far the only thing which was fully *loaded* is my credit card charge. I sent email to CustomerCare with request to mail the missing parts. Now waiting for them to be delivered..

      This doesn't seem to have the same suction power of the Kirby's I remember. It has the automatic drive but I don't like it so don't use it. Also it's supposed to have a setting, according to the instructions, that it doesn't have. The attachment that the disposable bag goes on came off the first day I got and I had to take it to the local shop to have it reattached. It's a good machine, it's a Kirby, just doesn't seem to have the power I remember is all. At least it doesn't clog up like the stupid Dyson I bought 3 years ago. I should have known better than to believe a snaggle toothed Australian anyway. Carolyn H.XXXXX

      I ordered a Kirby G4, but when my shipment came it was a Kirby G6. I wasn't notified it was going to be different. They didn't charge me extra and said I could return it if I didn't want the G6. I've had the G4 model for 22 years and liked that model and was very excited that I was going to get another one and was disappointed when I opened the box and when I called they said they didn't even have G4 in stock. Decided to keep the G6 and it works very well and is in very good shape for being refurbished. It was supposed to come with a tool caddy but I did not receive that so they gave me a credit for that item. They were very helpful and answered my emails to them in a timely manner. I was upset that no one notified me of the different model, but in the end, they were helpful and took care of the problem.

    • Still works, but...
      Verified Purchase

      I highly recommend buying a Kirby vacuum from an actual Kirby distributer instead of Overstock. My vacuum arrived so slowly I think they sent it by pony express. When it arrived, the unit had a huge crack in it. It also did not have extra belts, instruction book, or the plastic holder for all the attachments. I first attempted to contact Overstock by email. Not wanting to wait until my 45th birthday to recieve another, I simply asked for them to refund $* and send me the belt and holder. I got a form email in return. I then contacted by online chat, which said they were going to send another one. Before I could say no, the online chat stopped working (imagine that). I once again sent an email, and got a form email in return. After a couple more back and forth like this, I finally got a personal response to say my case was being closed. Despite all of this, the thing still worked, so there is that.

    • Old reliable
      Verified Purchase

      Researched all the new vacuum cleaners out there with all the plastic parts. Decided to go with the old reliable Kirby. I had owned this version before. (The ex kept the latest model). All the parts were nice and extra long hose. The 4-star rating is because the air flow seems weaker than I remembered it. Or maybe I just got used to the latest Kirby generation. Refurbished is way more affordable too!

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "I recently purchased carpeting that has a high pile. I need a vacuum that will adjust in height. Will the G-4 work? Thanks, Jan Jones"

      • A:

        Yes, this vacuum is adjustable in height.

    • Q:

      "Is there a way to purchase actual Kirby belts and bags from you? I want the ones made by Kirby for the G4."

      • A:

        At this time we do not sell Kirby brand bags or belts on our site.

      • A:

        Do a search. There are companies online that sell filters, vacuum bags, belts etc. Overstock is just that overstocked merchandise. I've owned Kirby home cleaning systems for over 56 years. My current Kirby is over 25 years of age. It is not old.

    • Q:

      "What is the difference with the Kirby G4, G5, G6, G9?"

      • A:

        Hello rogjen, The difference between Kirby G4 Vacuum (Refurbished) and the g5 g6 g9 is the filtration and fan style some are micron filtration some card hepa, and some fan styles are plastic and some are kevlar. Thanks for shopping with us.

      • A:

        I have owned a Kirby since 1961 and have been sold on this product. My son and I sold Kirby home cleaning systems many years ago. My first Kirby was a used one a sewing machine guy accepted as a trade-in for a Singer sewing machine. $** and I took in, a great investment and sold me on the product for many years. My second Kirby home cleaning system was a refurbished one purchased directly from a Kirby dealership. It was only $***. That was 1973. It was still working great when I purchased a new one at my son's wholesale price in 1992. It is still working well. When going on demonstrations with my son, I cleaned chocolate off the back seat of a car. The children had allowed a chocolate candy bar to melt on the seat. Yes, I removed all of the chocolate. The Kirby carpet shampooer works great too. It does not wet vac like some companies do. Wet vacuuming will null and void a warranty on the carpet and damage the padding under the carpet. Another reason I am still sold on Kirby home cleaning systems. I say home cleaning systems because it is not just an upright vacuum. With all the attachments there's many things that can be cleaned with this system. The G4 is what I have and will still use because of the HEPPA filter. I married my high school sweetheart over 50 years later. He was taking care of one of his daughter's cat. I had never been allergic to cats but became allergic all those years later. He was feeding the cat and grooming the cat at our back door. That door faced the north so when the north wind blew the dander from that cat came in. My doctor told my husband to vacuum the patio which was a huge one and use a HEPPA filter vacuum cleaner. He did and he made the daughter take her cat back. Over 25 years later my Kirby is still working and over 56 years later and I am still sold on Kirby.

    • Q:

      "I have an old Kirby that does an excellent job,but I have reached the age where I would like to have a self propelled. the description doesn't mention, so I assume it isn't. By the way, my sweeper, when I purch. it about 20 trs. ago was refurbished. Still sweeps good & I have animals."

      • A:

        Hi, glenherman. Happily, the Kirby G4 vacuum is a self-propelled model! Thank you for shopping with us, and have a wonderful day.

    • Q:

      "what is the weight ?"

      • A:

        Thank you for contacting us lou4thson. The weight is 32 pounds. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    • Q:

      "Does the G4 only vacuum or does it shampoo the carpet too?"

      • A:

        Hello michelleks1, The G4 is capable of shampooing carpet, however this particular item does not come with the attachments to shampoo. If you want the shampoo attachments please look at Item #: 11485059. Thank you for shopping; let us know if you have any additional questions.

    • Q:

      "how do you turn it on?"

      • A:

        It is in the back below where the handle attaches.

    • Q:

      "Can I still use my shampooing attachment from my Kirby 2001 vacuum if I get the Kirby G4?"

      • A:

        Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee that the shampooing attachment from Kirby 2001 will work on the item.
