The vacuum is a complex structure with many individual parts combining to create the overall impact. Certain parts of the mechanism are more important to note than others, and these are mostly evident in the main structure of the vacuum. However, it is also useful to be aware of the other parts in case of emergency, although this is not crucial as an expert will usually be able to advise you in such situations.
The main structure
The main Kirby vacuum cleaner parts are the dust bag, the filters and the on/off switch and handle. Knowing about these parts is an important stage in learning how to use a vacuum safely. The dust bag and filters are largely independent of the user, in that they do not generally need a lot of attending to. The dust bag is the area in which the vacuumed dust collects, ready to be disposed when the bag is full. This will usually become apparent to the user through a notification light or symbol, or simply through the vacuum no longer working as efficiently. The bag should not need to be emptied too often, but this depends greatly on the model of vacuum which you are using. The filters require very little attention, apart from if they need renewing. Each filter is usually given a time-frame which it can be expected to run efficiently throughout, before it eventually needs changing. The on/off button should be activated when the user wishes to either begin or terminate use of the vacuum, and the handle enables easier movement of the vacuum when in use.
The hose and outlet
The vacuums main external parts are the hose and the outlet which the vacuum is plugged in to. It is most essential that the user of the vacuum understands and knows the role of these vacuum cleaner parts, as they will be used and manipulated during each use. The hose connects the suction end of the vacuum to the collection bag, and so any damage to it would greatly influence the effectiveness of the vacuuming and should be rectified as soon as possible. The outlet is the cable which should be plugged into a wall socket, in order to give the vacuum power to work.
Additional appliances can be purchased – usually parts which are added to the end of the hose – in order to personalize your vacuum to suit your specific requirements. These include additional brushes or tubes of different sizes and shapes, in order to ensure each corner has been vacuumed efficiently. Each of these components and those which are more central and crucial to the vacuum, contribute to an effective vacuuming experience and help minimize the risk of any incidents.
