Hi Judy, Youmust have asked what was the burnt component. If this was the motor then there is no chance of a cheape service but if this was a the surge capacitor then it is just a easy job to replace.
So Whenever there is an inspection please ask for the correct technical fault, the details of repair( if replaced or repaired) warranty on work .
Taking it to several place may finally end up tampering the machine. So the known person can be believed in to prove himself.

rotate the front belt lifter from green to red then rotate the locking knob above the nozzle. and the head will lift off. it helps if you put the height adjustment in the highest setting. did it smell like rubber burning?

G5 motor is on it's way out


If you are the original owner,you can send it to Kirby rebuild and have them rebuild it.For a non-original,it is around $300.They go thru it,replace the parts needing replaced,buff the metal covers to remove the blemishes,and send it back to you.It will look and operate as it did when you first purchased it.Call Kirby Rebuild in Cleveland,Ohio.

Burnt smell is probably the belt slipping. Even though it looks OK, either the belt needs replacement and/or the roller needs cleaning and/or lubrication at the ends. Try cleaning the roller ends first and then light lubrication with WD40. If belt works, you are done. If not, replace belt.

Burning smell


Hi. What does the burning smell of? Is it 'rubbery', or is it acrid and 'chemically'?! The most common item to 'burn' is the belt which drives the rotating brush at the front. Does your cleaner have a belt? This would give a burning rubber smell. The instructions should explain how to change the belt - have a close look and see if the belt has been slipping on the motor spindle. If it has, then it'll probably be worn at this point and should be replaced. A common cause of this happening is the brush bar getting caught in something - edge or rug, etc - and being forced to a standstill. If the smell is more 'acrid', it could be a problem with the motor. This is a repair service job.

Kirby G5 Transmisson


I know the lever you're describing, but it's very hard to tell someone how to put it back on. There's nothing wrong with your transmission, by the way, this is a part that's meant to be moveable, and it just happened to slip off in your case. You may call us at 1-866-509-1952, and we can do our best to help you.
