Question about Kirby G6 Bagged Upright Vacuum

2 Answers

Kirby G6 no power

After plugging in my 8 year old Kirby G6 and pushing on the "on/off" switch, I receive no power. I have checked the outlet for power, the power cord for proper wire connection, the front attachment and the bag for correct attachment. Could it possibly be the switch itself?

Could be the switch, I would check the cord 1st. It has 2 wires running thru it, one may be open. That power cord goes bad often, if anyone is pulling on the wire rather then the plug, then it would have have stretched and break.

Splicing kirby electric cord


If you are unsure on how to splice the cord back together it may be best to just purchase a new cord. You can find a new G6 cord and it is easily installed into the switch at the base of the Kirby.

Plug in kirby vac to do the floors and it won't start.


It could be the power cord or even the switch. I suggest taking it to an authorized Kirby repairshop and have it looked at. It could be something as simple the power switch

Kirby G6 Power Switch Test ?


You can look at the wiring diagram and try to figure out how to use a circuit tester to test the switch but I would just suggest just swapping it for a good one (always good to have one good switch for testing) and see if it solves the problem.

Good Luck

Could be the bearings, especially if the machine is old or the dust filters have not been replaced regularly.
Check to see if the noise is still present after the machine winds down when the power is turned off. A rattling sounds means bearings.
