    The feed from the vacuum head if free of any clogs. The unit powers on and both the main headlight and green light indicator flicker. There is also an electrical odor (not from a burning belt).

The power head light flickers when the brushroll is temporarily not spinning. You may need a new belt and/or a new brushroll. As for the unusual sound, you may need to replace the fan. See my troubleshooting guide and from there, you can view my so it yourself guides for fixing your Kirby.

The dirt path probably is clogged. The brushes are not turning because the drive belt is disconnected/broken/stretched

Kirby g2000 not picking up dirt


It is most likely the belt. You cannot reverse the suction. First check to see if the bag is expanding when running. If the bag is blowing up then it is the belt if not it is clogged just take the bag off from the vacuum and remove the head you will see the obstruction.

My kirby has no suction


Even if you have a new belt, do everything this guide tells you to do. The seller may have the power nozzle assembled improperly. If the brushroll is in wrong or the base plate is not on correctly, it may cause these symptoms.
