I'm repairing an Instyler right now.
Troubleshooting, I connected a multimeter and measure the voltage where the motor is connected. When I push the button that makes spin it, I measure 12Vdc which is a correct value for that motor. Then I connected the motor and it did not spin. Therefore I need to buy one motor here: http://www.makepolo.com/products/Linear-Motor-with-4.5-to-24V-p39074920.html
Same motor... yes you can repair it by installing a new motor.
the motor carbon brushes need replacing which is a most difficult job to get the cleaner disassembled. Brushes are easy to fit if You have replaced carbon brushes in other appliances etc.. Getting to the brushes in the Kirby is very difficult... Lee in Australia
your vacuum will have to be completely disassembled. there is probably a clog that created in the cyclone due to the water mixing with the dirt in there. the cyclone assy will have to be disassembled and cleaned. unfortunately disassembling the cyclone voids dysons warranty i think.
I guarantee that there ia a wad of paper in the intake throat. This will necessitate disassembly of the bottom plate and removal of the beater/brush bar.) I am assuming an upright rug/floor vac, as I didn't get any model numbers/types from your description.
This disassembly is very easy to do. Remove said items and dig deep into the intake throat at the motor.
After disassembling the unit to gain access to the hoses, the electric valve and the pump, I was able to determine that the pump was not working. NOTE: If you plan to test if the pump motor is working or not you must first remove the belt that drives the brushes from its motor pulley. This is done by first removing the C-ring that holds the pulley on the motor shaft, then slide the pulley, belt with it, off the shaft.This will allow the motor to turn without spinning the brushes. With the unit plugged in and turned on, pull the cleaning solution/water trigger. The pump motor has a short shaft sticking out and it should spin. You can touch the shaft with a finger and feel if it is spinning or not. I have no idea if the motor can be purched separately or if it is available only with a pump assembly. I also have no idea if you can buy either. I reparied the motor, but I will not go into detail on this at this time. Sufice it to say that the shaft was in dire need of lubrication. Most people would not elect to disassemble the unit to the extent that I did and I would simply recommend taking it to an authroized service center.
Is this a Savvy? If so your problem may be in the handle switch asm or one of the circuit boards. The switch is really a problem, but they have come out a hopefully a better one. If it is the motor, take it aprt, you can check it with an ohm-meter to see if you have reading or if it shows an open. If it isn't froze up, and has an electrical burn smell, then the field of the motor is bad.
