SOURCE: Kirby G5 - Stopped
The carbon brushes in the motor need to be replaced. Very IMPORTANT....... DO NOT run the Kirby anymore until you get this fixed. If you do, the armature will be in danger of being damaged. (and that part is expensive!) The carbon brushes are reasonably priced, and you can use this online guide to get to them and change them. It's a guide for replacing the power switch, but it will help you change the carbon brushes too. Hope I've helped...

SOURCE: belt slipping
Get some belt dressing from an autoparts store. With gloves on and the belt cover off spray on the corner of a rag (or equivelant)and carefully turn the vacuume on for 3-4 seconds while holding sprayed area of rag on the drive surface of the belt avoiding getting your fingers or the rag caught in the drive rollers. Repeat for best results. This may help clean burnt rubber off belt and give fresh surface for better belt/motor pinion/brush reaquaintment. Did this to our Bissel Velocity Widepath. Had same problem. Great performance after belt dressing was applied. If that sounds too dangerous for ya, get a new belt and pretreat it prior to install. Be shure to remove burnt rubber from brush.

It sounds like the motor has overheated and has now been irrepairable damaged.
The motor has a built in over-current trip to protect itself (and you if it seriously overheated and caught fire). This normally automatically resets itself, however if the motor has just about had it, the moment it is switched on, it just trips again.
The primary cause of motors overheating is that the filters are not cleaned or replaced frequently enough. Dont be fooled by Dyson's "lifetime filters". They need to be regularly cleaned and replaced when necessary.
Replacement motors are avaible on eBay for about £25, however repalcing one requires good DIY skills and tools.
Have a look at www.dysonmedic.com and see if you feel you can tackle it yourself. If not, take it to a repair shop or call the Dyson helpline.

Testimonial: "thanks so much for taking the time to reply...sounds like we need a replacement!!!...will get the dyson ball this time..hope it's good! thanks again!"
The Motor sounds like it has gone bad. Bagless machines like these always have motor problem. If it is under warranty then it will need to be shipped to Buffalo New York. I would trade in in on a Riccar vacuum. You can get 20 years out of those for less money.
