Having problems with your Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Kirby G5 - Stopped
\015 Hi there, please help! The kirby was being used when a noise like Boof !!!! was heard, the front light went off and there was a smell of burning. It was then switched off and back on again, the light did not work, but the motor seemed to try to work then stopped. Changed the fuse, did not work, I am going to change the bulb when I get one. Could this be the motor? Any suggestion???Thank's\015
The carbon brushes in the motor need to be replaced. Very IMPORTANT....... DO NOT run the Kirby anymore until you get this fixed. If you do, the armature will be in danger of being damaged. (and that part is expensive!) The carbon brushes are reasonably priced, and you can use this online guide to get to them and change them. It's a guide for replacing the power switch, but it will help you change the carbon brushes too. Hope I've helped...

110-220V Dear Sir, I purchased a kirby sentria vacuum cleaner from ebau two weeks ago. I currently resid in the UAE with 220V power. My maid has plugged the vacuum to work with it unaware of the voltage difference, a terrble noise as mentioned came from the cleaner as well as a smell. She unlugged it and stopped t from operating. Can you please let me know how can i assess the damage? If this model has a switch from 110 to 220V IS there a solution with transfromer or motor to make it work? Thank
You may have burnt up the motor field when it was plugged into a 220V power source. But there are drop down transformers you can get to reduce the voltage form 210 to 110. AS Radio Shack or similar store would have them. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a Kirby G5 and need to replace the gear drive shaft, as the lever inside fell off and the shaft came out. (Common problem by the sound of it.) How do i remove the actual gearbox itself. I have removed the 3 screws on the bottom, but it's not coming out. What's stopping it from coming out? Do i need to remove the gearbox drive belt first? If so, how do i get to it? Thanks in advance.

Chatter We have a Kirby Ultimate G. Since we purchased it it bounces across the floor and the level of the sweeper has nothing to do with it. To get it to stop, it has to be at the highest level. The place we bought it, has done nothing to help us. We tried a new beater brush, no help. If I have to use it at it's highest level to sweep my carpet, I might as well not waste my time. ANy suggestions?

Hi,\015\012\015\012This definitely sounds like your cord is bad. The reason that I specifically think that it's your cord is because the cord is actually connected into the handle, and is attached to the handle in the back. This would ... Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum
