We've had 2 Kirbys in 40 years. The 1st one we bought when we got married 40 years ago. Never had to do anything but every few years replace the belt. The Waterbury Service center gave us belts for free also polished it! We just bought our second one a Sentria 2. The sale rep was polite and cleaned 2 carpets for free. Our carpets look great!
