Hello,
DO NOT TURN ON THE KIRBY ANYMORE UNTIL YOU GET THIS FIXED!!! (not even to show someone what it sounds like)

Your carbon brushes are worn out and will cause damage to the armature if you run the machine before they are replaced..

You can use my guide for replacing the power switch to break the Kirby down and allow you to get to the carbon brushes to replace them.

Vacuum seems to have lost some suction and is harder to push on carpet


Start by installing a new belt. Belts lose elasticity fairly quickly. And should be replaced at least twice per year. Belts lose elasticity even if the vacuum has never been used. It's possible for a brand new vacuum to actually have been assembled a year or two ago which means it may end a new belt before it was ever used for the first time,

Bissell bagless 6583 brush won't turn after new belt


Sorry to hear about the difficulty with the brush. If your brush does not turn by hand freely, then your brush needs to be replaced.

Here is a quick link to order a new brush:

The clippers are back together but are cutting the skin and still dont sound right did i put them together right.


Did you remove the comb and blade only? If so, the comb (the part that doesn't move and is closest to the skin) should extend beyond the reach of the blade (the part that does move left and right). Nicking is sometimes caused by excessive pressure against the skin. A properly adjusted blade will resemble someone with an underbite (extended lower jar) with the comb part extending beyond the blade.

Most clippers have a clatter adjustment screw. Turn this until the clipper clatters (buzzes really loud) and then adjust it back until the clatter stops (but not too far or you will lose power and the blade will stall or cut slowly). Be sure to oil the blades. Mineral oil (from a drugstore) will do if you can't get shaver oil.

Good luck from Detroit, MI

Most likely your belt wore out and broke.
Here is a handy vacuum repair tutorial that should get you back cleaning.

Below is a short excerpt from the instructions. The link above will take you to the full version with images.
When your vacuum starts to lose cleaning power, requiring multiple passes to get an area clean, or the self-propulsion loses its zip, chances are you need to change the vacuum agitator belt. After only a few months of use, most vacuum belts stretch out enough to slip, causing the agitator to spin more slowly.
Replacing the belt is quick and inexpensive. New belts are available starting at about $5. Belts come in numerous brands and sizes, so bring the old one to the store for a guaranteed match.
Fifteen minutes, two screwdrivers and a new belt are all you’ll typically need to complete the job.

The carpet brush attachement loses power while vacuuming


I have seen this many times. It is either a bad connection or a break in the wire. Turn it on and flex the wire and connection until you can reproduce it dependably. Then you will know what it is and where.
It is very aggravating. You need to fix it soon, before you take to jumping up and down on it and bust the wand and the power head also.

Irobot scooba 5800 spins quickly then sets off backwards


Remove and clean all of the wheels, and make sure the cliff sensors under the bumper are clean. Tap the bumper with your hand-- really smack it a couple of times. It sounds like the Scooba believes it's stuck against an obstacle.

Losing power on a carpet attachment


Does the motor stop or the brush roll? If it is the brush roll, then replace the belt. If the motor is stopping, then it could be the motor or the cord for the opwer head.

While I'm having a different problem, the problem you guys are experiencing can easily be fixed by cleaning the two internal filters. My vacuum did the same thing, just stopped running mid-stream. Remove the main filter cup. Look inside the cavity of the vacuum and you'll see a grey bar at the bottom of the cavity, pull this up and you'll find the first of two washable filters. Just rinse it under warm water squeezing as you rinse until the water runs clear. The roll the filter in a few paper towels or towel and unroll, reroll until completely dry - should only take a few minutes. Then, look in the same cavity except up top there is another filter which seems to be hidden. The back wall of the inside cavity will guide you to these filters as well. You will be amazed by the difference cleaning these will make in the suction power of your vacuum. Also, if you remove the belt cover and clean out the hose in this area it will improve suction as well. Hope this helps. Now, if I could just get the darn belt back on mine. First belt smoked and popped. Bought replacement belt, smoked and popped within seconds... HELP!!!
