Having problems with your Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Hi there--My G5 had a burning smell and when I took it in to be looked at I was quoted R1800-00 as I was told it needs a service and then certain repairs.I am dissapointed as this is very expensive and I thought maybe I could get a quote elsewhere.Please help!I live in JHB Thank you Judy

Answers :

Hi Judy, Youmust have asked what was the burnt component. If this was the motor then there is no chance of a cheape service but if this was a the surge capacitor then it is just a easy job to replace.
\012So Whenever there is an inspection please ask for the correct technical fault, the details of repair( if replaced or repaired) warranty on work .
\012Taking it to several place may finally end up tampering the machine. So the known person can be believed in to prove himself.

I have a Polti Vaporetto household steam cleaner that I bought 16 years ago. I haven't used it for about 10 years because the connection between the steam er and the attachments doesn't work properly and it is difficult to use. The shop where I bought it no longer sells them and can't get them fixed anymore. I'm about to ditch it, but thought I would have another go at using it. (It was very expensive). Now I can't get the safety cap off so I can't fill it or test it. Any ideas on what I can do

I have a Polti Vaporetto Lecoaspira 710. I have filled the tank and set the machine up as usual. When I turn it on the boiler pump runs continuously for a minute or so and then the 'beep' begins and the machine shows that the boiler is empty. Obviously the water is not getting through. We don't live in a hard water area so it shouldn't be 'limed -up'. The manual says to leave it to cool down and then try again. That had no effect. The only answer that Polti 'Service' could give me was to try 'G

Good Morning, A friend recently gave me her Hoover windtunnel model U630-900 vacuum. It is a self propelled vac. It comes on but is hard to push and will not really pick up any dust particles on the carpet. It has a funny smell also. I saw where one of you Q & A you said to check the roller brush. I thought maybe a belt may be off or something, but I do not have a manual to know where to begin checking. Could you tell what to check and also if there is anywhere online to download the manua

The power to rotate the beater bar only works half the time..it seems to be very positional. In the past I could get it to work, now it just won't turn. Have tried the re-set button . Expensive vaccum with poor reliablility!

Is the power nozzle motor itself not working? If it's not, the problem could be the wiring, the switch, the vacuum power switch, the connectors from hose to machine, or the circuit board in the machine.\015\012My best guess would be the connec ...

Greetings Irlawren3, \015\012\015\012It all depends on the model you currently have. The filters on some are above the motor and some are on the side housing. Its pretty clear looking at the unit where the filters are located. I would su ... Vacuums

The motor just went out on my 2 year old vacuum with light usage (hardwood floors in a very small house.) The Sears repairpeople are estimating ~ $130 to fix (this includes parts & labor). I'm wondering if it's worth investing $130 into something i've spent $350 on only 2 years ago. Shouldn't these machines last longer ? Is there something I could do to get them repair free as it seems the motor must have been faulty to only have lasted 2 years. Thoughts ?

Motor is sparking and smells like burning rubber. When it first happened I thought the vacuum had something jamming the beater bar. That was the smell it had, like when the belt gets burned. But when we turned it over, it wasn't jamming. Took off the base plate and turned it on. The motor area is sparking and it makes a weird noise (I assume that is because the motor fails and restarts). I looked for loose wires, can't find any. I believe I need some sort of part replaced, maybe even a n

I love my Keurig.....I have recommended it to many of my friends...3 of my friends asked if they could use their own coffee (and not trying it I said yes)...I have been told that the coffee grinds come out and are in the machine.
