I ran over an elastic hair band with the hose that wrapped around the shaft (not the brush). Since then, no power. could the motor have burned up?

There is a safety switch in the motor area that, if not engaged correctly, can result in your vacuum not running. The most common thing that's wrong is that at the bottom part of the motor, where the cord plugs in, the cord is in between the motor and the plastic holder for the bag and it's not letting the bag click on all the way and so it's not pushing in the safety switch enough for it to turn on. Also, you may want to remove the head and reattch it and make sure it's lined up properly. If none of this works, then you could have a cord problem or your safety switch might be out. These are very fixable problems. Find your nearest vacuum repair shop. A cord should cost no more than 30 dollars and a switch with labor will cost around 80 dollars. If you can't find anyone, contact us at 1-866-509-1952 and we can help.

Hello, Here is a link to the shampooer instructions and you will also be able to find a manual there. The G5 manual is out of print, but ANY G series manual will work as they are all exactly the same with difference of color.

I bought a kirby g5 with no manual and can't figure out how to clean the couches with it!!!! help!!!!!


you can turn your Kirby into a handheld by removing the handle (button down on the bottom) if it came with all the attachments. Take the big handle off attach the small one onto it and you can take it and clean your couches, bed, stairs, etc. had mine for twelve years never had a problem with it.

Kirby G5 vacuum


check the cord. see if there are any frays. or broken spots. usually it is one of 3 things. 1, faulty electric cord. 2. the attachment or floor nozzle not being properly attached( kind of a duh issue LOL)
3. a faulty switch assy. the switch can be kind of a bear to replace. I hope it is the cord. if not i would take it to a kirby repair person, because it is very easy to damage the motor assy when replacing a kirby switch. trust me i have damaged a few learning how to do it

You are missing the little screen that goes on the small hole in the tank where the shampooer hose attaches to the tank. Read this shampooing instruction guide for more info....
