Question about Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum
Hi there, please help!
The kirby was being used when a noise like Boof !!!! was heard, the front light went off and there was a smell of burning. It was then switched off and back on again, the light did not work, but the motor seemed to try to work then stopped. Changed the fuse, did not work, I am going to change the bulb when I get one. Could this be the motor? Any suggestion???
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...
