My G6 keeps cutting out when you move the upright handle and it seems to be very loud I stopped using it as I didnt want to have it burn out, just incase there was a short or crossed wires or the like can you please help I miss my cleaner.
If it keeps cutting out when you move the handle it's usually the cable that has gone.
Turn the machine on and waggle the cable if it cuts in and out then you can confirm it's the cable.

Sounds like the flex is damaged. This happens most often either right near the plug or where the flex enters the handle. There may be no damage visible externally, but still the copper wire inside can be broken. You say that moving the flex about makes a difference, so you will know where the problem is. If the damage is indeed at one end, then you can simply cut the flex and re-wire it. If you need to have someone do it for you, get a firm quote as it may be cheaper to fit a complete new handle (there's no labour cost involved because the handle just slides in). I hope this helps!
Does It make the noise all the time or only when the machine is moving. If it does it only when you push the vacuum that noise is normal. The older Kirby transmissions make a whining noise when pushed.
The top handle connects to the lower half of the handle with one phiilips head screw. The screw is halfway between the cord holder on the back. The screw had come loose and the handle has slid back away making it not make contact to send the power down to the motor.
Hope this helps someone else!
