Having problems with your Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Vibrating and noisy Kirby

\015 Our Kirby is making a very loud, high pitched noise whenever it is turned on. It doesn't matter if the head is on or the hose attachment. It vibrates excessively also and smells like a burning motor. Is it time to bury it?\015

Answers :

Power off the vacuum.


Unplug the power cord from the wall.


Remove the head or hose attachment.


Look at the fan and make sure all the fins on the fan are there.


If part of one or more is missing it will cause the fan to wobble and shake.

If the Kirby is less than 3 years old, it is still on warranty, which means you should get a repair for free.
\015\012If it is older, there is the factory rebuild program. For about 200 bucks they rebuild your Kirby so it is like new!
\015\012So for less than a regular one item service would cost for some other machine, you will get a total rebuild. Ask your Kirby representative.

Which Kenmore vacuum cleaners are made by Panasonic? Are all of their direct drive machines made by Panasonic? We have a blue Hoover Windtunnel with the dirt sensor. It cleans well, but it is unbelievably noisy. I wondered if something was out of place and the brushes were hitting, but everything looks normal. We bought Kenmore models 36722 and 36724 and love them. I believe they were made by Panasonic. Our Kirby sits in the basement. Much heavier. These are quiet and clean well. I would like an

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,

It's been awhile since I have used my shampoo system on my Ultimate G series Kirby. Well, as instructed I took it apart and cleaned it. Now I can?t figure out where to put the ?screen cap? and ?sponge filter?. I have my manual in front of me and the only place it shows the filter and sponge (page 35 in the manual) is when it?s been taken apart to clean. It doesn?t show where to put it back.
