Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
The Kirby does not have a restart button. There are a number of reasons why it may not start. First be sure the bag assembly and rug head or hose are properly in place. The motor will not run without them firmly in place. If this is not the problem, the next thing to check is the cord. Remove the plastic cord cover on the base of the unit, pull the cord straight out to unplug it, and check the cord for continuity with a voltmeter. Wiggle the cord around a bit to be sure it is conducting current continuously. If the cord is good, either the switch has failed, or the carbon brushes in the motor have worn to the point where they are not making good contact with the motor armature. This will usually require professional repair.
