Question about Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Vacuum does not power on

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

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.

My kirby diamond vacuum is not sucking. the small


Greetings from GoVacuum,

When the green light on the Kirbys stops working, this indicates that your belt has either broken, or fallen off the cleaner so the brush is not spinning. You're probably noticing that it's not picking up as well without that green light. If the belt is broken, and you need to a purchase a new belt, GoVacuum offers these belts for sale here; Kirby Vacuum Cleaner Belts 301291-3 (3 pack) fits all Generation series models G3, G4, G5, G6, G7, Ultimate G, and Diamond Edition in a 3 pack.

Once you have the new belt, please watch our very helpful video on how to replace it, and to make sure that the belt is on correctly, and the green light is on.

Smells (burnt rubber) like it's overheating when I vacuum


I would check the brush roller and make sure it turns good and replace the belt on it . When you smell burning rubber most of the time it is the belt .

Hello,

Kirby Ultimate Diamond Edition
You can cal the Kirby factory to request a new owner’s manual and they will describe how to use the vacuum on hardwood floors. There is a felt piece as wide as the brushroll area that will clip on to the bottom of the revolving brush area so that you hard wood floors don’t get scratched. The Kirby head will dial off and the Kirby head will come off and the attachment hose will connect to the front of the Kirby and that is how you use the attachments. Also contact your local Kirby vac dealer. 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.
