SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Does the kirby G5 have a reset button? If so,

No reset button. It sounds like you might have one of several possible problems. Some ideas I have that you could try yourself would be to check the lockout switches: there is one behind the head nozzle, maybe the nozzle is on crooked, if so, maybe not engaging the safety switch, the other lock-out is located where the bag screws on, unlock the bag and re lock it to ensure proper fit. Otherwise, take it to the shop because it could be the motor, the cord, the switch. Hope this helped ya. Let me know. Thanks, Rene (the Vacuum Doctor)

Is there a reset button for Kirby G6?


One set button on your Kirby. Remove the head to check for blockage in the fan.

Kirby G4 plugged in won't come on? Is there a reset button and where is it?


There is no reset on a Kirby. Remember that the motor will not run unless the bag assembly and vacuum head (or hose) are fully in place. If this is not the problem, the most likely causes are either a bad cord, a bad switch, or a worn or stuck carbon brush in the motor.

The green light on the power head was flashing and then it went out and the brush quit turning. Is the a reset button?


No reset button. Most likely your belt broke or it has to be replaced. How to replace the belt look at instructions on our website:

If you need belts or any other supplies for your Kirby sweeper you can buy them on our website:

Hello, I have a Generation 3 Kirby- it was working - I turned it off & it will not turn on again - is there a safety switch /reset button or did the on/off switch go out - I have had it 15 years & replaced the switch 1 time - Thanks
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The chances are it is the safety switch 1st and the foot switch 2nd. The safety switch is in the front of the fan housing of witch the bell housing hooks into. Both are about the same price plus labor. So feel free to do it yourself or to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Kirby ultimate power off


Make sure the bag assembly and either the power nozzle, or hose attachment are correctly attached. The kirby has safety swithes that are only engaged when these components are correctly installed. They look like small resessed buttons on the base unit. if they are not engaged the vacuum will not turn on. Keeps curious fingers from getting into the "spinny" parts ;o)

No power


I'm not familiar with Kirby vacuums, but press your reset button a few times (if you have one). If that does not work, then it is most likely the switch. For a rough estimate of the switch or parts for your vacuum, please refer to Sears Parts website and have your model number ready.
