Having problems with your Kirby G6 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Kirby G6 won't turn on.
\015 One day vacuum just didn't turn on. Took apart fan assembly, looks okay.Do not know how to test switch. Please help.Thank you\015
If the brushead is removed,there is a safety switch which prevent the machine from operating if the brushead is removed or not installed correctly.Either this switch or the main power switch could be the culprit,as well as the cord.
My problem was with the cord.....the end that plugs into the wall. Replaced that, now it comes on, but it's stuck in reverse.........Can't be all that complicated....I hope!!
