I just bought a refurbished Kirby G6 and it seems to have two potential problems. I've never used a kirby before so I don't know if this is normal or not, but when I turn the vacuum off it makes kind of a loud noise- like something is banging in the brushroll- but there is nothing there. The other problem is that it seems very "jerky". When it is in drive and the propel is going, it seems like you have to push it a little before it will engage and push easier. It creates a very jerky motion. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong- or is this normal for Kirby vacuums? Thanks

Try taking it to a local kirby office and ask them if there is anyone in your area that can refurbish the motor instead of replacing everything. If that doesn't work ask a local dealer or call the dealer that you bought it from and tell them that you would like to trade your old one in for a newer one. I used to work for Kirby and I can guarentee that the Kirby itself, straight from the factory only runs about $200!
look under the vacume cleaner and take off the cover make, shure the belt is where it needs to be, you should have a setting on the vacume cleaner that gives you an addjustment for the carpet your on, raze it up.
The Tech Drive problem SHOULD be able to be fixed easily and fairly cheaply by a vac shop or Kirby distributor. There is an adjustment that needs to be made, but it shouldn't require purchasing any parts.
