Question about Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

My kirby just stopped working for no apparent reason. Everything seems in order but it won't switch on. I changed the fuse but this wasn't the cause. Any ideas why it isn't working?

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.

Kirby G4 stopped working


maybe the impeller broke, that is the most common reason for '' loud noise''....then you must remember that the kiby will not switch on [ all G models ] if the bag and the front nozzle is not properly attached.....

Vacuum stopped working


Sometimes after years of use the power cord can break internally where you won't see it. Look for damage or twists in the cord. With the vacuum turned on wiggle these areas between your hands and see if it tries to run. If so replace the cord. If not the switch may be bad or the motor needs to be serviced. Good luck. Please rate me so I know if I helped.

The "switch" refered to is probably the handle release button.

How to replace a fuse a Kirby Ultimate G Series


There is no fuse in the Kirby. There are few things that you want to check:
1. Cord - most likely cause. It may not be damaged but wires inside may have snapped if it got between doors.
2. Safety switch inside - no easy way to check. We usually just put a new one in and see if it solves the problem.
3. Motor - very unlikely that something is wrong with the motor - those are very hard to kill.

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...

Kirby G3 won't run


sounds like brushes not being pressed down to the commutator shaft. pull out brushes and clean the brass brush guides and then apply a light coat of grease to brushes. however, what exactly do you mean by "the fan is OK"?
