    I was vacuuming with the power head and all of a sudden, the canister lost power. I believe that something in my carpet casued the water to bubble up. It's done this several times before, however, I've never completely lost power. powerhead still working. Is there a reset button?

    Depending on the model determines if there is a reset button. Does the light stay on the power nozzle?

Brushes won't spin anymore


There is a spring that goes on an arm, #32 in the picture. It actuates the turbine so the brushes will turn when the handle is tilted back, and stopped when upright. This might be where that spring goes. You may have to take the top cover off to put in on. After you get it on, and the brushes still don't turn, look up in the square hole where the shaft on the brush block goes into, turn the unit on and see if it is turning, if not then the turbine either needs to be taken apart and cleaned or replaced. The turbine is what drives the brushes.

I have a kirby g4 vacuum. Recently had a power surge and the vacuum made a whining noise and then stopped working. Please can someone tell me what i need to do to fix it. Thanks


A power surge might have damaged the power switch and/or motor. I would suggest it be checked out by a qualified vacuum repair technician.

Brushes not turning


Is the motor operating when switched to "on " position? Is so I would have to assume that the belt is broken to the power brush /head. Did you happen to smell burning rubber at all when the brushes stopped working? Look in your manual for replacing power head/brushes belt! WalMart sells most types or your local vacuum repair facility.. check the Yellow pages and let your fingers do the walking.. Good luck

Dear Expert, the vacuum is not working in normal mode but if i use pipe then it works. Any suggestions? thanks khangee


Hello,

So usually when an upright vacuum works well when using the attachment hose, but doesn't work well when vacuuming on the floor mode, this typically means that you have a belt problem. This is very easy to diagnosis. Turn the machine sideways so the brushes are facing you while the machine is plugged in. Be careful and make sure there's no hair, or clothing near the brushes, and turn the vacuum on. When you do this, are the bottom brushes spinning? If the brushes are spinning, with the vacuum running, put the vacuum brushes down on the carpet as if you were vacuuming, and listen to the brushes. Can you hear the brushes stop when you put the vacuum brushes on carpeting?

If your brushes are not spinning, or if you the brushes stop when you put the vacuum down on carpeting, this is a clear sign that you have either a stretched, or broken belt. Many people equate a broken or stretched belt to loss of suction because without the belt, the vacuum really can not pick up much at all off of the floor. When the vacuum doesn't pick up, many people assume the vacuum has lost suction.

Your roller brush may or may not also be bad. Installing a new belt properly will help you answer this question.

Please see the link below for the owners manual to a model that's similar to the model you posted this repair question under. The belt change will be identical. The belt change instructions starts on page 13 of the .pdf

http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/C1414900.pdf

I hope that this information was helpful to you, if so please be sure to rate my repair as helpful by clicking the thumbs up icon in the top of the repair.

If the belt is fine on your vacuum, please also let me know by leaving a comment here on the repair page, I can then go through some more advanced troubleshooting with you.

Thank you,

Chris J.

Brush roll belt stops turning when in position to vacuum. Does turn when vacuum is turned onto side. Belt is in tact, brush roll is fine. What's going on?


I think I know what the problem is with your machine. It's a rather lengthy repair, and I'll be happy to photograph it for you (like I do on most of my Fixya answers), but I'd like to know before doing all of that if you still need help, or if you've already fixed it.

Thanks,

CJ
