If you mean that you can't turn the shaft by hand then you probably have removed motor to replace the fan. When installing it back you should have tightened screws on the bottom of the unit first and then ones that are inside (with large washers). If this is not the case then we would need more info on what exactly you mean by "not turning easily".

Power off the vacuum.

Unplug the power cord from the wall.

Remove the head or hose attachment.

Look at the fan and make sure all the fins on the fan are there.

If part of one or more is missing it will cause the fan to wobble and shake.

sounds about right you should change that type of belt every six months to a year regardless if its broken or not. one other thing you should do is make sure the brush roll itself isn't bound up it should spin freely if not you can pull the plastic ends off the roller to clean any hair or thread out .

Greetings from GoVacuum,

The Kirby vacuum is a very well engineered vacuum cleaner. There's usually not many things that go wrong with them.

You may just need to replace the belt on the machine, this should take care of the not picking up part. Even though the belt may not be broken, it may have stretched to a point where the roller brush is not spinning as fast as it should. This will effect the vacuum's performance, and make it not pick up as well.

Here's a video that we did showing how to replace a belt on Kirby vacuums. If this doesn't take care of the problem, let me know I'd be happy to try and help you determine what the problem is. One other thing you may want to look at, is the fan on the machine. When you take the front agitator housing off of the machine, look inside the vacuum at the fan, make sure that there are no cracks, and that the fan is not broken off.

SOURCE: Wattage for Kirby Sentria G10D

The conversion of Amps to Watts is governed by the equation
Watts = Amps x Volts

For example 1 amp @ 110 volts = 110 watts
your case 7 amp @ 120 volts = 840 watts
unless you are running it at 230v but I don't think you can
I would look for one rated for Volt-Amps instead of watts
It's best to round up to be safe add 40 - 60 watts

Kirby G10D not driving on assist. every thing looks good when in gear turning the wheels the transmition does not turn Why?


First thing to check is if when pushing pedal it moves gears located on the rear Kirby transmission axle (you will have to take cover shell off to see that)
If that works fine then primary belt may be broken. If it is then just replace entire set to make sure that belt type matches gears and the set is not that expensive
Last and the most expensive problem - the main transmission belt within transmission is broken (then I would recommend replacing entire transmission ) Kirby Transmission Troubleshooting

Our Gen3 Kirby still works but is extremely loud not - I am currently only using with the wood floor attachment (no brush) - thoughts?


this could be the impeller fan next to the motor shaft under your attachment hose connection.

to determine this, remove the hose from the unit, and turn the fan shaft with your hand looking down inside the unit. You should see blades on the impeller fan, and they should all look squared off and curved. If any of them are broken or worn, it will make the unit louder than normal.

Also, the hose attchment has an increased noise more than using the brush attchment anyway because it increases the suction for the hose more than on the carpet. IE the motor runs faster giving you more suction.

An Impeller fan for the G3 Kirby will run about 18-39$ for the fan. More for labour.

Good luck,
Mark

Kirby G4 motor is very loud. It has suction but seams to be a lot louder than when we bought it in 1996.


Hi There,

Most likely it's just the fan that is making the noise rather then the motor. The way the Kirby vacuums are designed, anything hard that's vacuumed up such a coin, or other hard things can break the fan.

In order to check and see if it's your fan, remove the front part of the vacuum that contains the roller brush and belt. If you're not sure how to do this, here's a video that shows you how to change the belt, but will also explain how to get the front bell shaped housing off:


Once you have the front cover off, look inside the vacuum directly behind the motor shaft. You will be able to inspect the fan here. Turn the motor shaft which also turns the fan, and see if there's any cracks, or if the fan blade is broken. I think most likely you'll see the fan damaged somehow.

Here's a video repair that we've put together that explains step by step on how to replace the suction fan on your Kirby:


Part 2:


Hopefully this helped you fix your Kirby. Please be so kind and rate the repair, or leave feedback if this was helpful to you. Thanks so much,

Motor problem


First six pictures HERE will let you know how to remove shell to see the motor. I would not recommend starting it before you get the screw out (you will need to remove 5 more screws from the front f the unit to get the fan case off). The fan case is glued so you may need to use screw driver and pray the fan case of the unit. If fan is damaged - remove it from Kirby as damaged fan is out of balance and Kirby will vibrate like crazy. Shaft has opposite thread so you have to turn it CLOCKWISE.
If the fan does not come off easily you may have to remove this part and access the rear of the motor where you can use a wrench to hold the armature (you will see where you can hold it right behind the commutator. Removing slide bracket assembly memorize where the wires are plugged in and how it is engaged with the transmission.

God Luck

sounds like the motor burned up. not sure if travel adapters will handle a large load like a motor, around 8 or amps. power needs in US are 110 volts ac, 60 hertz.
I believe UK is 220 volts and 50 hertz.
usually when a vac is brought to europe you must change motor.
