First Thing to check is, Is it the pedal or the actuall switch.. the main switch is on the motor up under the cover and on the side
it is a pain to get to and even worse to change out.
most of the time it is the pedal that is broken and it is attached the switch by a rod
check that first

    ok if you have narrowed it down to the switch, you will need to take the handle off. then the back cover. the switch is on the side black thin with wires you will need to remember how the wires come off and you will need a flat screwdriver to help you slide the switch out. and it has slots for the new on to slide into.. it is a narrow space and will be tight to work in. but has to go in just right or wont work

Hello,
DO NOT TURN ON THE KIRBY ANYMORE UNTIL YOU GET THIS FIXED!!! (not even to show someone what it sounds like)

Your carbon brushes are worn out and will cause damage to the armature if you run the machine before they are replaced..

You can use my guide for replacing the power switch to break the Kirby down and allow you to get to the carbon brushes to replace them.

I NOTICED SPARKS INSIDE THE UNIT WHERE THE HANDLE ATTACHES TO THE MOTOR....NOW IT IS NOT WORKING WHAT CAN THIS BE?


Hello,
DO NOT TRY TO TURN THE KIRBY ON ANYMORE BEFORE YOU GET THIS REPAIRED!!! Your Kirby needs carbon brushes and if you don't already need a new armature, the worn out brushes will destroy the armature that you have. Here is a guide that will help you get down to the carbon brushes to change them...

It is a guide to replace the power switch, but will give you the step-by-step to get down to the carbon brushes.

Hope this helps,

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)

Kirby Ultimate G will not suck with main brush head attachment


You may need a new belt, it may have stretched enough so it isn't turning the brush roll anymore.
