If the brushead is removed,there is a safety switch which prevent the machine from operating if the brushead is removed or not installed correctly.Either this switch or the main power switch could be the culprit,as well as the cord.

My kirby G6 2000 no pwer


More than likely you have a short in your power cord. however if you want to know for sure take machine apart until you can put an elec meter on switch where cord is attached. plug machine in and test the end of cord that is attached to switch if you have 120volts at that point its your switch thats bad. if you have no voltage or anything less than 110volts at the switch replace cord

Wont **** properly. is just moving dirt around. i have a G6 i unclogged it changed the bag. dont know what else to do.


With a Kirby that's around 10 years old, there's a good possibilty the fan is worn or broken. You can purchase one online (http://www.elikirbyclub.com/category_93/Kirby-GSix-Fan.htm for $17.55 plus shipping and handling) or at a Kirby store.
Instructions for replacing the impeller can be found at the following site.

Also on this page is a weblink to their "Online Kirby Vacuum Manual". It will explain how to replace the roller brush belt.

Kirby G6 Power Switch Test ?


You can look at the wiring diagram and try to figure out how to use a circuit tester to test the switch but I would just suggest just swapping it for a good one (always good to have one good switch for testing) and see if it solves the problem.

Good Luck

Re: find a repair for vacuum


Don't know in Australia, but there must be a local repair shop that will repair Kirby's. Sometimes a Sewing and Vacuum store will also offer repair and parts for various vacuums.
