Hmmmm... not sure what it was doing in the fan chamber but anyways - go HERE and you will see how it is installed (picture next to step #10).

Makes sure you use 2 gears of the same color. If you need a new one you will find it HERE.

Good luck
Rocky

After my son vacuumed up maybe a lego theDiamond G Kirby started sparking from inside housing. We took brush and checked for any loose items and found none. Any ideas and can I diy?


Sucking up a Lego or similar item normally should not have done any damage to the motor. It may stop the brush roll which may burn the belt if the belt is tight. If the item got sucked into the fan it may have broken or cracked it which could seize the motor. Remove the brush roll assembly, spin the motor shaft while you inspect the fan. Fan replacement is best to be done by an experienced technician.

My Kirby is not engaging the belt after it was put back on. I took it off to clean brushes and did everything according to the video but the belt will still not engage and green light does not come on.


The belt is not on the motor shaft. Remove the head from the motor unit. With the belt centered on the brushroll, turn the belt lifter a full 3/4 turn counterclockwise to stretch the belt up onto the belt lifter finger. ( Look through the back to be sure the belt is streched into a loop over the finger.) Plce the head back on the motor unit and latch it in place, then turn the belt lifter fully clockwise to drop the belt onto the motor shaft. Be sure the brushroll is correctly installed in the head. Setting # 1 should face the floor.

How long is Kirby motor got warranty?


It depends. Did you buy it from someone who will honor the warranty? If not you may not have any warranty. Check first with the person you bought it from. You may find if you bought it from someone who came to your house to demo it the company you bought it from is no longer around or in business. Try to find a Kirby warranty center in your area. Be careful though, Make sure to get price quotes before any work is performed. I have many people tell me they took a Kirby vacuum in for maintenance or a minor repair and got hit with a $500 or $700 repair bill when they went to pick it up

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,

My kirby g6


Try taking it to a local kirby office and ask them if there is anyone in your area that can refurbish the motor instead of replacing everything. If that doesn't work ask a local dealer or call the dealer that you bought it from and tell them that you would like to trade your old one in for a newer one. I used to work for Kirby and I can guarentee that the Kirby itself, straight from the factory only runs about $200!

Kirby G5 vacuum


check the cord. see if there are any frays. or broken spots. usually it is one of 3 things. 1, faulty electric cord. 2. the attachment or floor nozzle not being properly attached( kind of a duh issue LOL)
3. a faulty switch assy. the switch can be kind of a bear to replace. I hope it is the cord. if not i would take it to a kirby repair person, because it is very easy to damage the motor assy when replacing a kirby switch. trust me i have damaged a few learning how to do it
