I have a kirby diamond edition ultimate G series that I bought at an estate sale and plugged it in and it does not come on. Does anyone know what could be the problem. I am pretty sure it is not the cord. Thanks Lou

Re: vacuum does not power on
Check to make sure the front nozzle is on correctly and also the bag base, make sure it is pushed all of the way in. There are safety switchs at these 2 spots and have to be engaged to work. You can't tell by looking at the cord to know that it is ok or not. Use a continuity meter to check that one side on the cord isn't open. Could also be a bad switch, carbon motor brushes not making contact. Armature bad in the motor. So there are several probables for it not working.
