Motor and Lights stopped suddenly after vacuuming...
Posted by Brigham81 on Jul 05, 2008
I was vacuuming the stairs, and all of a sudden the light went out and the motor stopped. Is it possible to overheat it, or blow a fuse? Thanks, Brigham

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Oreck XL2200 Bagged Upright Vacuum. It sounds to me that when the lights go out and it stops working that the motor is bad that you would have to replace the motor. It is still cheaper to replace the motor than to purchase a new vacuum. 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.

SOURCE: I was vacuuming my car and the Kirby G4 just stopped

Greetings from GoVacuum,

Unfortunately there is no fuse on a Kirby Generation model. In my 10 years of repairing Kirby's as well as other vacuums I will tell you that 9 times out of 10, when a Kirby Generation doesn't turn on, it's the cord that needs to be replaced. This is by far the most common problem that we see on Kirby repairs.
The Kirby motor is very well built, and usually has a life of 30+ years (G3 is about 12-15 years now). The only other problem it could be on the Kirby would be carbon brushes, or the switch assembly.

I would first try testing the power cord, I think this will solve the problem for you. To test a cord on a Kirby Generation (all Generation models are the same machines, just different colors) first follow where the cord goes into the Kirby at the bottom. To access this cover easier, first remove the "boot" at the bottom of the outer bag. This is the plastic part at the bottom of the outer bag that connects onto the Kirby. You will see that there is a plastic cover over the cord. You will need to remove the screw that holds this cover on.

Now after you have removed the cover, pull the plug out of the machine. Once you have the cord disconnected from the machine, you can now test it to see if there is a short somewhere in the cord. You will need to purchase an inexpensive continuity tester from Home Depot, Radio Shack, or most other electronic stores. This will tell you if there is power running through the cord, or if the cord is bad. With the continuity tester, plug the cord into the wall outlet, then put the positive, and negative testing rods into the female end of the cord that plugs into the machine. You will then be able to tell if the cord has continuity going through it. The tester will indicate if there's continuity or not.

The picture here shows that the cord is good. If your tester does not light up, or indicate that there is continuity, you'll simply just need to purchase a new cord. As I stated earlier, this is the most common reason that a Kirby won't turn on.

If however your cord tests OK, this indicates that the machine either needs a new motor (or carbon brushes in the motor) or it needs a new switch.

Please feel free to email me if you'd like instructions on how to diagnosis the switch or carbon brushes, or if you need to purchase a cord for your G3. Also I can send you a parts diagram of the Kirby should you ever need any other part for it. I have all parts for Kirby in stock, and we are the cheapest price online.

If the cord tested ok, then there are a few other things that may have gone bad. I'd be more then happy to try and help you diagnosis the Kirby further. Please just request a repair clarifiaction here on Fixya with further details.

If this helped you figure out the problem, please rate my repair as helpful. I really do appreciate it, thank you.

    SOURCE: My dyson vacuum just stopped working while I was

    Hi there,

    I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC25. Like most Dyson cleaners, your DC25 is equipped with a safety device which shuts off the cleaner if it starts to overheat. This is often due to a blockage - I'd also recommend washing the filter. The easiest way to check for and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online guide:

    http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc25_new/dc25-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-wont-switch-on-or-cuts-out/cut-out-in-use

    The correct way to wash the filter is shown in our video guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLs3-zrv05E

    The filters should be washed in cold water without any detergent, at least once every 3 months. Always ensure they're totally dry before replacing them - this may take up to 24 hours.

    By clearing any obstructions and washing the filters, you should be able to resolve your issue without further assistance. However, if you've followed these steps and are still concerned, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you and recommend the best course of action.

    Kind regards,

    My electrolux vacuum, model 4870 just stopped while I was vacuuming. Now it will not go on. It was working just fine a few minutes ago, then just stopped. Any ideas


    it may be over heating.Check to make sure your hose and power nozzle are not plugged..Simply turning machine on without the hos then putting hose on while running and see if the motor sounds different,ie.winding up higher.....if this doesn't help try changing the bag

    I was vacuuming up little shards of glass using the tool connector and all of the sudden the motor made a really loud sound.


    Does the machine sound louder than normal since then? If its louder than normal since you vacuumed up the glass then you must likely chipped a fan blade or broke it. Either way it needs a new fan if thats what happened.

    While vacuuming it gets hot and shuts down


    It's probably just overheating. You have to take the vacuum apart and clean it thoroughly. There is probably a "plug" of dirt/hair/gunk clogging a hose.

    I have had cheap vacuums that last years as long as I clean them regularly.

    Sometimes while I'm vacuuming, the front of the vacuum makes a horrible noise. If I lift up the front end, it stops. Any ideas?


    I just cleaned the small metal drive gear inside the brush housing. That solved my problem. It seems that some junk can build up in the drive gear which makes the belt slip on the gear. That is horrible noise you are hearing.

    No you do not need the filter to pick up glass. If you are vacuuming up dust/dirt then use the filter.
