Question about Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a G4 kirby. Can you replace the brushes? If so where can I buy them? My armature looks good but I think my brushes are bad. I cleaned the armature with a pencil erasure and it worked for a little while then I noticed alot of blue sparking on the armature.I could not get it to come on again. I think this is due to carbon build up. Can I clean the brushes out and be fine or do they need to come out and replaced. My vacum is 11 years old? What do you suggest
Carbon brushes wear over time and may need completely replaced...it doesn't cost a lot and i have guides available for the repair. Try my troubleshooting guide....
I have the brushes available as well. The changing process is also outlined in my guide for changing the power switch.
Hope this helps...

Parts can be obtained from the Kirby service centre in the UK.

You can replace the carbon brushes and most repair shops should have them. Also tho, the armature could be causing the problem, if you put in new brushs and it still arcs badly, then the armature is bad.
