Get the parts ... locally or at some place like Repairclinic.com then set aside a Saturday afternoon in a quiet place with screw driver, pliers and a box of band aids and go to it.

Repairclinic.com will also provide you with details of the actual procedure at hand.

That is what I think

My kirby generation 3 wont come on


Make sure cord is not damaged. Check to see nothing is blocking hose or carpet nozzle(where beater brush is or brush roll). Plug unit in to a receptacle that you know has power going to it. (Lamp you know works when plugged into same. Using hose on front, make sure bag bottom completely attached to exhaust, the hose has a little arm like thing that will depress the safety switch on the front of the unit, and turn on using foot switch at the back of the unit. If these do not work, it could be one of two safety switches, dirt may have fouled or switch may need to be replaced.

Hello, I have a Generation 3 Kirby- it was working - I turned it off & it will not turn on again - is there a safety switch /reset button or did the on/off switch go out - I have had it 15 years & replaced the switch 1 time - Thanks
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The chances are it is the safety switch 1st and the foot switch 2nd. The safety switch is in the front of the fan housing of witch the bell housing hooks into. Both are about the same price plus labor. So feel free to do it yourself or to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Kirby G5 vacuum


check the cord. see if there are any frays. or broken spots. usually it is one of 3 things. 1, faulty electric cord. 2. the attachment or floor nozzle not being properly attached( kind of a duh issue LOL)
3. a faulty switch assy. the switch can be kind of a bear to replace. I hope it is the cord. if not i would take it to a kirby repair person, because it is very easy to damage the motor assy when replacing a kirby switch. trust me i have damaged a few learning how to do it

I don't know where near you, but most local repair shops should have the belts for kirby.

What hose gets hooked up for upholstery cleaner. The one that usually goes in front? I cant get my vacumn to turn on.


Hi!
You need to take the power nozzle off and attach the thing that looks like a little plastic "cup" with two hooks and a screen on it. This is the intake guard. Attach it to the front. Now remove the cloth bag and put the hose on the hole where the bag was. You'll have to line the arrow on the hose up with the notch on the Kirby and push the hose arm toward the Kirby until it pops on. (if the hose isn't all the way on, the vacuum will not run) If you need to, lube up the edges of the hole with a wee bit of vaseline or hand lotion. This makes the hose engage easier. If this didn't help, I have mnauals available.
