Having problems with your Vacuums ?
My Kirby vacuum cleaner will only run for a few
\015 My Kirby Heritage II vacuum cleaner will only run for a few minutes before shutting itself off. It then will not run again when turned on. What could cause this?\015
Could be caused by bad bearings in the motor or bad carbon brushes and a worn commotator on the armature. check the cord where it connects to the top of the handle on the swivelling strain relief. usually the cord fails there .

I have a Kenmore canister vacuum - model 25614506. Some time ago, I was not able to turn the vacuum off with the on/off switch, but could still use the vacuum. Turned if off/on by pulling the plug. The other day when I went to plug it in, I heard a pop. Now the sweeper runs but the vacuum cleaner does not **** - no air flow. What could be the problem. The cleaner is only 4 years old.
The motor has an inline fuse ... Kenmore 25614 / 25615 Progressive Bagged Canister Vacuum

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,

110-220V Dear Sir, I purchased a kirby sentria vacuum cleaner from ebau two weeks ago. I currently resid in the UAE with 220V power. My maid has plugged the vacuum to work with it unaware of the voltage difference, a terrble noise as mentioned came from the cleaner as well as a smell. She unlugged it and stopped t from operating. Can you please let me know how can i assess the damage? If this model has a switch from 110 to 220V IS there a solution with transfromer or motor to make it work? Thank
You may have burnt up the motor field when it was plugged into a 220V power source. But there are drop down transformers you can get to reduce the voltage form 210 to 110. AS Radio Shack or similar store would have them. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
Changed the motor carbon brushes on my Beam central vacuum cleaner equiped with an IntelliWatch system. This system includes the Alutron DB100 module. This Alutron module needs to be reset so that the vacuum cleaner can operate properly. I believe that this module keeps log of running time and disables operation after a predetermined time. Can you help me with providing a reset procedure that will reset this module. Thanks

I have a Kirby G4 Vacuum Cleaner - MOdel G4 D. I have never had any problems or repairs done to it in the past ten plus years that I've had it. This is an upright vacuum. I was vacuuming the carpet floor and was not having any trouble at all. I switched the vacuum off and moved it into a different room. When I tried to turn on the vacuum, it would not turn on. I checked with different outlets, used both front attachment and hose attachment. Checked the front part of the motor/ spiral case. This

Need Kirby Generation 3 Vacuum cleaner manual. Vacuum is not picking up dirt from floor. Seems to have enough suction to inflate the bag, but when you check the suction under the vacuum, there seems to be extremely litle suction.
If your brush roll is turning and your bag is not overly full, then the only other thing it can be is a clog where the bag connects to the vacuum. Turn the plastic part out away from vacuum and lift off to see if you have something clogging it. It ... Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I had the vacuum cleaner question about the canister and the wand/powerhead... the Kenmore Progressive Vacuum canister model 116.25812 and the canister not powering off without unplugging the vacuum. The solution I received that they both run on their own switch so it is normal makes sense. However, is there a power switch on the canister anywhere? The only way for the canister to be turned off is by unplugging it. Any ideas? One would think there would be a switch. I am new to fixya and hope

Oreck Belts Why do they smell badly and almost always break when being used for an extended period? I see Mr. Oreck in print, television and internet ads -- and he certainly carries himself as a credible person; a man you want to believe....But reading his biblliography -- he started his career (in this area as I know it) as a "Vacuum Cleaner Salesperson" for Whirlpool. Many vacuums brands - particularly those that are noit sold directly by retailers (Oreck, Kirby and others) use the commission-

I have a power drive baggless vacuum cleaner...it runs well, but suddenly it seems to have lost most of the suction coming through the hose and floor area. When I remove the dirt container, the suction below it seems strong. I have had it to repair twice--they have tuned it up and replaced all filters and belt. It still does not pick up well when I vacuum or use the hose. Can you help ?

I have a Kirby Heritage 84. Great condition except the part that connects the innerbag is missing. I don't even know what it is called.

My Kirby Ultimate G does not have enough suction to pick up pet hair. Is there anyway this can be corrected? I felt under the vacuum when it was running, the roller is running, but I felt very little suction.
An Ultimate G has lots of suction. If you turn on your vacuum and the bag immediately inflates - that is how you can tell if your Kirby is moving air (suction). There is a more modern brush that came out with the Ultimate G Diamond and the Sentria ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
