Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My kirby legend II started spitting out sparks near the foot plug. How can I fix it please? Thanks Candy


Answers :

Depends where the sparks are spitting from.Unplug from the wall and try to detach the cord from the vac itself, where it plugs in. If there is a small hole burned in the side you will need to detach the entire cord from the handle where it clamps on and buy a genuine new one from a vac repair shop or Kirby dealer. Cords do wear out. Ther is a slim possibility you could have a bad switch below but generally the switch just dies , no sparking.
If the sparks were shooting out from inside the motor housing, you will likeley need a motor rebuild which should be done by a professional at vac shop.

I have a Kirby G7 and it will run on the low speed setting. When i switch to the high speed it starts to spark and smoke near the back of the motor near the windings. Do i have a motor going bad or is there a simpler fix.


It's probably doing that on low speed too, you just aren't noticing. What you'll have to do is get to the motor. Look at the armature and see if it's scared, missing an pieces, scratched up.. if so, then your motor is shot, throw it away.. If not, if ... Vacuums

Please please help me! I recently bought an Empisal Celebrity 550 Sewing machine, I've used it maybe 4 times up to now. Yesterday I was sewing with it and everything was working perfectly, today, when I got home, I plugged in the sewing machine and started sewing, just to see that the bottom stitch is completely loose. It's making this loose loops instead of stitches? I didn't change a knob or anything from working with it yesterday to today, so I don't understand how it all of a sudden doesn

Henry hoover Hi all, I bought a spares/ repairs Henry on ebay having been told there was no cable rewind and believing that since I had a spare one in the shed it would be an easy fix. However, poor Henry had his cable replaced to find when plugged in, he tries to start but nothing happens. The motor turns once and just cuts out. If you turn it on and off again it happens again. One whir and turn of the motor, then nothing. It blew the fuses out in the kitchen first time too, so could it be a re

Electrolux Centralux I have a Electrolux Centralux. When I plug the hose in at one of the wall outlets the motor will not start. If I go to the motor and slap the unit it will start.....then...it will not stop unless I unplug the power cord to the motor. If I plug the power cord back in, the unit will not restart until I slap the motor unit again. The unit has only been used 20 - 30 times. Any suggestions?? Thanks, Bruce

My Dyson DC07 vacuum started to run slower after being on for a little while and then would run normally again. I have switched on today and it has just stopped. When I push the start button, on occasions it almost starts and then doesn't. I am wondering if there is a problem with the switch and if so how can it be fixed? Thankyou.


The motor running slower was the motor starting to burn out. The "almost start" is the brushes making intermittent contact with the armature in the motor. \015\012\015\012Your machine needs a new motor Pam. ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
