Question about Vacuums
Generic problem for all Vacuums
Hi There I have got a
Posted by opfinder on Apr 24, 2008
I have got a Kirby 2 HG vacuum cleaner which is around 20 years old now. It was going really well until last week when one of the capacitors which are connected to the brushes blew up. There is two capacitors one for each brush. One of them completely blew to bits and the other one is still intact. My question is are they the same size and where do I get a new one from.
I know it is an old machine, but I would like to fix it and get it going again. Any tips???
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Yes, I think you are referring to the carbon brushes for the Kirby II HG and it is a good idea to change both of them @ the same time to be able to wear the same. Having 2 different sizes could affect the motor performance and the carbon brushes / capacitors and it would wear uneven. If you are referring to the brushroll, replace it with a genuine Kirby brushroll and to do a belt change every 4 to 6 months. Please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area & in the yellow pages, if not call the factory or the website listed below:
