Having problems with your Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Kirby G4 running very loud and smells hot.
\015 My Kirby G4 had been running extra loud lately. Now the belt broke and it smells like something is burning (along with running very loud) when I turn it on and try to just use the attachment hose - I haven't replaced the belt yet. I'm afraid to use it. Is the motor bad? Is it worth fixing? \015\012\015\012Rhonda from Iowa\015

Miele Cat & Dog vacuum gets VERY hot and is VERY loud. Hose has no restrictions and I have changed the dust compartment (motor) filter and the exhaust filter. It still gets hot when I run it with the top open and all filters removed, so I'm guessing the problem is with the motor. Should I be going into the motor compartment? If so, what am I looking for?

Kirby G3 made loud noise when running. Sprayed silicon in fan thinking it might be a bearing. Found a coin and nail in fan and removed. Tha vacuum would not turn on. Replaced switch and brushes. Still nothing. Did the silicon spray do something?

A friend who bought a multimaster less than a year ago has had his start a loud 'clattering', dry, noise, and the gearbox started to get hot. The output shaft now has about the same amount of slop as the total movement should be. It is one of the quick attach type. I bought one of the allen key attach type, and have found in the past with various 'name brand' tools, drills, angle grinders etc that they usually use a 'dry' type grease which soon throws off the necessary parts and they run dry u

My Dyson Root 6 made a loud banging sound, and now its motor emits a strong burning smell every time it's switched on. It runs for a second or two, making a lot of noise, and then stops. (Just bought a new battery for it, too - what a drag...) It's off warranty, and Dyson wants almost as much to fix it as a new one would cost. Is my Root 6 e-waste, or is there anything that can be done for it?
