Be sure you are getting power to the brush bar motor. Power comes from the main switch to the brush bar switch, then to the micro switch that activates when the handle is reclined, then to the brush bar motor. Any openings in the circuit will cause the brush bar motor to not work.
If you have an elcrical tester you can verify that your source of electricity is in fact working. next test that the power is getting to the switch. check that the switch is working properly.If you have power all the way to the motor but it still is not working, then its a safe bet that your motor and/or the capacitor is bad
Here is a guide to diagnosing a problem with your Kirby. I would imagine that your power cord has a short in it or the carbon brushes need replaced. You may want the take a look at my guide for replacing the power switch as well to make sure that it was hooked back up correctly.
I just had this same problem tonight. As I was looking on this sight to find a solution, my husband fixed it. First he removed the extended handle part, then he took the 2 screws out behind the power switch and removed the front cover (directly underneath the power button). He then removed the plastic power switch cover and took the power leads off the switch and removed the switch and tapped on it, then the little button stuck in place:) Sounds silly but it worked! Good luck!
Pull the wand out of the Vac. Need to use a small Torx bit to take out 2 screws hidden behind the wand storage. Once screws are out, there are 4 push-clips which need to be un-latched. Pry the power panel off and you will expose the two switches (one for power, one for the brushes). Push the power switch down and it should "release" and go back to clicking when pushed. Re-assemble. Took about 5 minutes to fix.
