ALUMINUM ON KIRBY VACUUM

\015 I HAVE A KIRBY G5 VACUUM WHICH IS THE BEST I'VE OWNED. ONLY PROBLEM IS THE ALUMINUM IS SO DULL AND I DONT KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT SHINE AGAIN. IS THERE ANYTHING I COULD USE TO BRING BACK THAT SHINE.THANKS, JERRY\015

Answers :

You can take it to the nearest Kirby dealer to get it buffed out for about $25. Most of us use buffing pads on a bench grinder. The polishing compound can be found at Lowes or Home depot in the tools area next to the buffing pads. Three compounds are usually used. First a cutter, then a cleaner, then a finish polishing compound. You can get by pretty good with just the last two. Make sure you clean the pads between the different compounds. You can do this by gently placing a flathead screwdriver in to the buffing pad to clean it. Wear safety glass and an old shirt.

\015\012I rebuild vacuums and I use a product called Autosol Metal Polish (in a tube) to polish my Kirbys. It is available from many sellers on eBay. THE ABSOLUTE ONLY THING I WILL USE!!! (and I have tried MANY!)

\015\012Hope you try the Autosol, and if you do...just use a teeny (and I mean SMALL) bit on the end of your finger and rub it in a light rapid back and forth stroke for about 30 seconds. Then, take a soft rag or paper towel and polish it back off. You'll be amazed!!!

Kirby vacuum I have a G 6 kirby vacuum. The power cord has been checked and has continutity and replaced the power switch and the vacuum will still not run

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?

I have a Series G Kirby Model G7D. The other day when I was vacuuming all of a sudden the TechDrive (Power Drive Assist N/D) pedal fell off. I see the hole that it goes into but when I put it in it's loose and falls out and doesn't control the power drive anymore. When I shook the vacuum I heard something rattling around inside the vacuum head. So I unscrewed the bottom and looked inside and found a small metal part labeled K3 on one side and T on the other side. It looks like it would fit
