If the light is not glowing it means the brush roll is not spinning. The belt may be stretched and need replaced. The brush roll may be installed improperly. The magnet in the brush roll has to be aligned with the indicator light for the light to work when. The brush roll is spinning

Green light no on


HI There,

When the green lights do not come on when vacuuming with a Kirby, this indicates that your belt2_bing.gif has either broken or fallen off. There is a magnet on the beater bar that activates the LED green light when it's spinning.

Here's a helpful video tutorial2_bing.gif that we recorded, that will show you how to replace the belt, as well as perform basic maintenance on your roller brush to prolong the life of your belt as long as possible.

How do I put the belt on the Kirby the correct way in order for the green light to come on? The green light indicates that the Kirby will pick up.


The G4 has a magnetic block on one end of the brush. It must be aligned on the LED end of the brush housing. ..with adjustment screws facing out. When setting the housing back in place use the pedal to lift the carpet nozzle up off the work surface

Good armature maybe needs new brushes


You can replace the carbon brushes and most repair shops should have them. Also tho, the armature could be causing the problem, if you put in new brushs and it still arcs badly, then the armature is bad.

You may need a new belt, it may have stretched enough so it isn't turning the brush roll anymore.
