Having problems with your Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Kirby G5 intermittent power

\015 The vacuum 'turns off' intermittently unless held nearly parallel to\015\012the floor. If not held in this position and moved very slowly, it will\015\012shut off, then quickly turn back on, then off again. Sometimes it is\015\012hard to get it to turn back on (have to find just the right angle), but\015\012I never have to push the power switch. The switch remains on, but the\015\012motor itself stops/starts.\015\012\015\012Any suggestions? I would like to order the necessary part(s) and fix this before causing further damage to the vacuum.\015\012\015\012Thank you.\015

No power. I was getting intermittent power with my miele s558 midsize canister, but it was predicated with me fiddling with the retractable cord to get it to come on and then not move the canister while I was vacuuming. Now I can get no power. I have taken it apart and can see no issues with connectors, cord, casings, etc. It all looks fine. It is about 5 years old and I have had no problems with it.

My electrolux Epic 6500 power nozzle Model N109J will not work. It had an intermittent short which I thought I fixed (some of the insulation on the wires were pinched). I fixed the wires and it worked intermittently for an hour then shut down completely. Could the reset switch have a short? When I press the switch nothing happens.

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

I have a Kirby Generation 3 that will not power on with the Carpet Brush attachement BUT will power on with the hose attachment. Please advise. Thanks

Make sure everything is lined up and and bag is fully attached. If it does not work after that, you could have a defective safety switch. Take it you an Authorized Kirby Dealer. Don't pay more than $40 for this repair. ... Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I currently own a kirby heritage II, and love the cleaning power it has, but....it is becoming harder and harder for me to manuever it, do to arthritis. Are the newer kirby's any easier? If so, how much? If not, what vacuum would you recommend for me?

HI, I have a Kenmore 25813 and it seems like there is an intermittent short. When I have the extension wand on and the power floor attachment on, when it rotate the wand the light cuts out and so does the power floor attachment, when I twist it back it comes on again. I don't have this problem if I remove the wand and just use the crevice tool with the hose. Any idea where the short might be and can I fix it myself? Thanks. Gary

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?

\012 Hi there,\012Well I do have a suggestion though you may not like it use it as a boat anchor.....no no I am just kidding. I have sold vacuums for 20 years and Kirby has b ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

Lately, my Kirby Ultimate G has been acting funny. When I push it forward, it's fine, but when I pull it backward on the carpet, the light on the front flickers and the power flutters off an on. I thought it might be the rollers, so tonight I turned the machine over and pulled out the hair that was wrapped around the roller. However, that did not fix the problem. I should probably backtrack a little bit. In the past, I have had problems with the vacuum running over its own power cord.

The cord will need to be replaced with a cord made for the machine, as it has a non-standard plug. The cord cover is held in place with a # 20 Torx screw. Remove the screw and push the cover gently from behind to unlatch it. The handle must also be r ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

On a Kirby sentria the metal spool sticking out that goes into hose or power head becomes extremely hot and left burns marks on brush tube. It only gets hot when using power head. I checked all adjust

The power goes off and on when using my vacuum. When I push my vacuum forward, intermittently it loses power.
