Could be the a/c cord, a problem with the noozle not pushing the saftey switch, the bag emptor(bottom of outer bag) isn't on the of the way and not engaging the other safety switch. The other is a problem with the motor.

Model G4D. Drive wheels run in reverse, not forward. If you tighten the 3 torx head screws on the bottom, the wheels don't turn at all.


it means you had a problem with the allignment or the screws has a different thigthness then check the wheels allignment check the starting capacitor maybe it is damage allready replace it.

Suddenly my kirby g4d is bowing air instead of sucking the air..what do I do


This is usually caused by a plugged lower bag housing. When the machine is turned on, the bag should expand quickly and firmly. If it does not, remove the bag assembly by turning the housing couterclockwise to remove it from the motor unit, and check for debris.

Will not turn on when I hit on switch. I have checked safety switch where head attaches but it doesn't seem to be a problem there.


Check fuse in the plug or better still if you have and can use multimeter check voltage present @ switch

Kirby G4D belt change . haven't changed the belt in years ! not sure who it goes on, or around the the spool housing ??


Changing belt on Kirby is a bit complicated. Kirby Co. just did not make it easy for their customers. You have to be careful when installing the brush roll back. Brush roll end caps have to be put back a certain way. For detailed instructions with pictures go HERE.

Good Luck,
Rocky
