I do believe o6 the cord goes in to the metal housing of the motor .They are usually held in by a rubber grommet and they can with some patience and force be pulled out slowly does it as you don't want the wires to come off or you will have nothing to tell you which wire goes where one you get it open.If you can not get it out and it is just ripping , I would recommend taking it to your local used Vac sales and service store as they all service Kirby . If you do not want to let them fix it they will most likely show you what to do and then you can finish the job. One thing that I would do if I was replacing the power Cord is get one that is 32 feet long as opposed to the 20 foot cord that comes with it.It makes vacuuming much more convenient if you don't have to re plug it in every two minutes. I hope this helps and don't forget to click on the yes button if it did. Thank you for the question.

If you are unsure on how to splice the cord back together it may be best to just purchase a new cord. You can find a new G6 cord and it is easily installed into the switch at the base of the Kirby.

My kirby G6 2000 no pwer


More than likely you have a short in your power cord. however if you want to know for sure take machine apart until you can put an elec meter on switch where cord is attached. plug machine in and test the end of cord that is attached to switch if you have 120volts at that point its your switch thats bad. if you have no voltage or anything less than 110volts at the switch replace cord

Kirby G6 won't turn on.


If the brushead is removed,there is a safety switch which prevent the machine from operating if the brushead is removed or not installed correctly.Either this switch or the main power switch could be the culprit,as well as the cord.

Kirby G6 Power Switch Test ?


You can look at the wiring diagram and try to figure out how to use a circuit tester to test the switch but I would just suggest just swapping it for a good one (always good to have one good switch for testing) and see if it solves the problem.

Good Luck

Kirby G6 no power


Could be the switch, I would check the cord 1st. It has 2 wires running thru it, one may be open. That power cord goes bad often, if anyone is pulling on the wire rather then the plug, then it would have have stretched and break.
