Having problems with your Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Kirby stopped working

\015 My Kirby G4 stopped working,thinking that it could only be the power switch,since replacing the power switch,alas it still doesn't work.Has any one ever traced out the working of a G4,It would save me a lot of time if someone out there can forward me a diagram.I get continuity through the brushes.There is a circuit board mounted underneath with an inductor and capacitor,has anyone had trouble with these before.Yes.Any tips on ohmic values through the circuit would be helpful.I have all the interlocks made when I test for a circuit,both the bag and front interlock switches.ThanksGavinBrisbane Australia.\015

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
