Question about Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I bought this G4 used and it does fine when vacuuming straight back and forth but if I touch it against anything (ex: bump the couch) or pull it backwards at an angle while vacuuming it turns off. So to narrow the problem down, I knock the motor casing with my hand it turns off, knock it again, it turns on. Do you have any idea what this could be so I have a place to start?
Thanks in advance!
It sounds like a power cord problem. Check out my troubleshooting guide....
Hope this helps...

Defiantly sounds like a loose wire, but double check cord ends to make sure they aren't touch when moved from side to side. If not, check inside and see if their are loose connectors to the motor or even a weak switch.
