Question about Vacuums
Depends where the sparks are spitting from.Unplug from the wall and try to detach the cord from the vac itself, where it plugs in. If there is a small hole burned in the side you will need to detach the entire cord from the handle where it clamps on and buy a genuine new one from a vac repair shop or Kirby dealer. Cords do wear out. Ther is a slim possibility you could have a bad switch below but generally the switch just dies , no sparking.
If the sparks were shooting out from inside the motor housing, you will likeley need a motor rebuild which should be done by a professional at vac shop.
