Question about Vacuums
Have just replaced rollers in my old faithful legend II kirby. I now can not get the kirby to work with powerhead attachment. The power light comes on but the fan will not rotate to drive the belt.the kirby will work properly with hose attachment and will rotate when nothing attached. has this something to do with saftey switches? I am at a loss.
You have a bad speed/safety switch or bad linkage connected to it.

The motor spindle should NOT rotate when there is nothing attached to the front. Its very dangerous. There are two square switches on the front of the machine which engage depending on wether its the main head or hose thats attached. Looks like on of them is sticking
