Having problems with your Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Good armature maybe needs new brushes

\015 I have a G4 kirby. Can you replace the brushes? If so where can I buy them? My armature looks good but I think my brushes are bad. I cleaned the armature with a pencil erasure and it worked for a little while then I noticed alot of blue sparking on the armature.I could not get it to come on again. I think this is due to carbon build up. Can I clean the brushes out and be fine or do they need to come out and replaced. My vacum is 11 years old? What do you suggest\015

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,

Took my miele canister vacuum cleaner in for repair because the cord had a break in it creating a short. He said it also needed an inter filter ($12.29) and the carbon brushes were worn out ($21.95).
