Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
I thought I possibly had a short in the cord, but a kirby salesperson passing through the complex I live in told me that there are several safety precautions on it and that it will not stay on if something is not connected properly. The machine will come on when I first plug it in and turn it on but then will go off immediately. When I began having a problem with it, it would go on and off while I was vacuuming depending on the position of the handle. I have taken it apart and checked that all parts are secure but it still wont work. Any solutions anyone.
Take a look at my troubleshooting guide....
I have the guides to the repairs also. Hope this helps...

Check the motor brushes, may not always be making contact against the armature. Also there is a safety switch where the bag contacts when it is locked into position, sometimes they get clogged up with dirt, etc. While you have the bag off, pull the cord out of the socket and look at the 2 contacts and the plastic around them to make sure it looks ok.
