I suspect the safety/power switch. When nozzle is on the Kirby the protrusion on the nozzle casting must press the switch on the front of the unit (circled in red in the pictures below). See if that protrusion is not chipped off. It may be that a hook or even both are damaged (circled in blue) so nozzle is a bit loose and when you bump something it nozzle moves just releases the switch enough to shut the vacuum off. Hold the nozzle and try to move it. See if it is loose on the unit or not.
It could be the faulty switch too.

I was sweeping my floor I turned it off, then when I went to turn it back on it wouldnt turn on? HELP


Check the power button switch, it is often cause vacuum to shut off. Thus cutting current flow into the vacuum circuit. Also check the cord for intermittent connection. The cord is subjected to bent, twist and other abuse action while vacuum is in use.
Good luck.

I have a kirby sentria. vacuumed up my son's headphones and immediately shut if off. took brush off, unwound headphones, put it back together. when i turned it back on, the belt snapped. so i went to...


Take the front off the vacuum and check inside both the front portion and the canister for additonal clogs. Sometimes something will get caught in the impellor, causing the motor to overheat. Since there's little suction and the smell, I'd guess this is what happened.

Power cut out during cleaning


1 could have hit the thermal shut off. if it gets to hot they shut off, or it could be the cord some times they just go bad or it could be something else. Good Luck!

Ran over cord and the vacuum shut down, won't


sounds like it might have broken a wire in the cord and may have to replace the cord unless you can find the broken wire and splice it back together

You just check the bag "boot" to see if there is something worn down enough to keep the vacuum from turning it back on. If it is worn, buy a new mini-emptor assembly and install it and your vacuum should work fine.
