Having problems with your Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Kirby G4D vacuum

\015 When I plug the vacuum in it does on turn on when I hit the on/off switch. Can you tell me what the problem is? How can I fix it?\015\012\015\012Hello, I have a G4 Kirby, which I dismantled for cleaning,no problem with the dismantling or reassembly, but now it will not run, it worked before I started work on it, is there anyway I can test the switch while it is out of the machine.\015\012I can't think of anything that I have done to cause the problem, I am motor engineer by trade so have some knowledge of the workings of the Kirby.\015\012I have power to the Kirby two pin plug, the peg on the brush head is engauged with the front switch, and the side emptor switch is also pushed forward, and I have operated the main switch from the inside with the top cover removed, hope you can help,\015\012Regards, Bill\015

Answers :

You have looked into various facts since you are motor engineer

So there can be two problems

  • It Could be the a/c cord, a problem with the noozle not pushing the safety\015\012switch, the bag emptor (bottom of outer bag) isn't on the of the way and\015\012not engaging the other safety switch

  • Common fault is the mains lead broken internally, unplug from the side\015\012of the machine after removing the little cover where the wire goes in.\015\012You can use a kettle lead to test the hoover.
If this does not cure it most likely the motor brushes are worn.




Thanks for using Fixya

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,

We bought our Kirby less than 5 years ago and lately are not happy with it....it keeps breaking. The warranty has expired and our biggest complaint is that it has lost it's suction power. All the contents stay in the hose when I vacuum out the car or upholstery and it does vacuum well at all. The Kirby store quoted us over $200 to fix/ service it. Apparently this is not covered in the free yearly maintenance which we just had done. Any suggestions?
