I have the Legend 11 Kirby, I am having a problem with it, sometimes it will not turn on, the light is on but it doesn't do anything else. I unplug it, plug it back, I checked the plug on both the machine and the outlet.

Re: Legend 11 Kirby, sometimes will not turn on
Could have a problem with the motor, may need carbon brushes, or other motor related parts. If the light turns on and off with the switch, then the switch is probably ok. There is a speed switch inside the motor casing that could be bad.

The Heritage II Legend...First you make sure that the machine is unplugged from any outlet,. Now, raise your height adjust to the highest level. Next you will need to turn your belt lifter on the front of the nozzel to the right as far as you can. Now flip the hinged light cover up, and turn the latch that holds down the head to the left. Your nozzle is now released. Now take the hose and roll it on to the bar from the front to the back, make sure it is aligned and then turn the latch to the right locking the hose, and you are ready to kirby it up! Hope this fixesya! Let me know, Thanks, Rene (the Vacuum Doctor)

Motor is strong, impeller is fine. The light comes on near the button to turn it on however it's not doing anything. Switch maybe? Just a guess. Thanks for your help! Alice Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It can be only one of 2 things, either it could be the safety switch or the foot switch and they would have to be replaced. 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. http://kirby.com/ Customer Service – U.

Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. In most cities there are factory authorizes Kirby Vacuum dealers that also do service in most of the big cities other wise there are your local vacuum cleaner dealers in your area that also do service on the Kirby vacuums. When referring to the brush head are you asking for the bell housing or the brushroll. The brushrolls are very available @ either dealer but the bell housing that the brushroll fits into you probably will need to get that from the factory or the local vac dealers may have a good used one for less money or ½ the cost of a new one.
