The Kirby vaccuums have carbonbrushes with an autostop if its to short it will autostop, but if the electric field has a problem on one of the 2 coils then only one brush will spark more then the other then the electric field must replaced , but if both brushes have a sparking problem then the armature can have a disbalans a. one ballbearing is run out or b. the collectors are worn Sometimes a small lathe will provide a solution to restore the armature commutator again

It probably needs new carbon brushes in the motor,DO NOT run anymore for fear of burning motor out.

I have the G series Kirby silver vacuum, I was vacuuming and started to smell some burning. Looked down and my green light was off also. What could it be? PLS HELP


Your belt is burning and will eventually wear down and break. The green light comes from copper brushes on your roller creating an electrical current that lights the little green light. As long as the roller is turning, the light will stay on. There may be something jamming the roller (hair, string, paper, etc). Clean the roller off and replace your belt. If you don't replace the belt it will break soon enough. Once you start smelling the "rubber burning" smell it's and indication that your belt has deteriorated at some point and has a weak spot in it. Clean the roller and replace the belt and it should be fine.

Hello can you help me please? I have a Kirby G4 vacuum cleaner, It did work ok until it started to give off burning smell and lots of sparks from the brushes. I have changed these brushes, the motor still...


Some debris, even sand or dirt, probably got into the motor, causing damage to the armature. If this is the case, you will need to replace the motor. The burning smell from the motor is generally a sure sign of a bad motor.

Sparks from the Kirby Motor


1. Do you think this may be the problem?
YES

2. How come it continues to rotate?
Motor armature consists of multiple coils and just some of them burned so even though it keeps spinning it does not function properly.

3. Do I need to replace the armature?
We have switch replacement instructions HERE and they will take you as far as accessing the motor. We do not have motor assembly instructions yet but if you get that far - motor is not that hard to reassemble. You may have to spend some time getting tolerance ring back in and make sure you install finger spring properly.

Good Luck

G4 model is burning


May be the carbon brushes. DO NOT run the vacuum until you check them. If they are worn out, they can damage your armature and that is expensive to replace. Try my troubleshooting guide. It helps with do-it-yourself Kirby repairs. You'll also find links to directions and free repair guides!
