Kirby Ultimate G

Help! My Kirby vacuum just died. No smoke, no sparks, as if it was unplugged. Is there some sort of internal fuse, or am I looking at a new motor?

Where is located the fuse in a vacuum claner Kirby ultimate G?


There's no internal fuse, it is in the plug (UK version anyway). Not sure on US version.
If the unit is dead it could be several things. Bag and brush roller not fitted correctly you can check this yourself, motor brushes worn out, broken power cord etc.

My roller isn't spinning. I think the band is not on correctly.


Hi,
With the vacuum unplugged, flip it over and pull on the belt that runs the roller...if it is loose or comes all the way out...it is broke or has fallen off. Use your instruction manual to replace or install the belt. If you don't have a manual ...click below to look at a video that will help.

No power


There should be an onboard fuse for the Kirby vacuums. Look on the bottom of the motor. Hope this helps.

Kirby is smoking and breaking belts


First thing , make sure that the roller brush is turning freely.. should spin like a top.. free and easy, if not that is the problem
the bearing on the ends are seized up and it isnt turning and you belt is turning on the motor shaft, thus causing the smoke and burning

Wattage rating for Kirby Ultimate G
Posted by avhawaii on May 19, 2008
Does anyone know what the wattage is on a Kirby Ultimate G? I'm moving to the UK and need to know what size transformer to buy! Thanks

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. My suggestion is that you contact the Kirby Co in Cleveland listed below and they will instruct you on the wattage and also what you need for a transformer, or look underneath the vacuum and there should be a sticker stating the amps and maybe the watts, but also the information may be in the owner’s manual or they will mail one out to you, there might be a local Kirby dealer in your area that might have a manual as well. 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 G runs heavy


Hi, I'm Jon IO used to sell these machines and I also own an Ultimate G, And sounds like to me it's a loose or broken transmission belt, I think you should have your local Kirby dealer take a look at it or even a good quality vacuum shop will be able to look at it.
