Question about Kirby Vacuums
There are a few things to check:
There are safety switches mounted on the body of the machine designed to prevent the machine turning on when it is not fully assembled. Ensure that your bag unit is snapped completely into place, (with the rear of the emptor assembly nearly flush with the body of the machine,) and that the front nozzle assembly is mounted correctly.
Also check that the power cord (immediately aft of the bag unit,) is pushed completely into the machine.
If the switch does not feel responsive, it can either be that the little metal "pole" (for lack of a better description) is not attached to the main switch assembly correctly, which will require you to open the entire housing to check.
Those are the simple things to check, otherwise it may need a switch, cord, or motor replacement. Checking continuity on these items with a VOM will allow you to determine the cause.
