Having problems with your Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Ran over cord and the vacuum shut down, won't
\015 I have a Kirby G3 vacuum. The last time I used it, I accidentally ran over the cord and the machine shut off by itself. There's no damage to the cord. The vacuum won't start now. Am I right that there's some kind of safety switch that goes off when you run over the cord? Is there a reset button somewhere? Thanks a lot!\015
Sounds like it might have broken a wire in the cord and may have to replace the cord unless you can find the broken wire and splice it back together

I have a hoover windtunnel upright vacuum, It will not shut off and I have to unplug it to do so. If I take apart the upper handle and manually flip the internal switch it works just fine, only when using the external switch on the handle, wont shut off.
This is a common problem with this machine. The switch has too much resistance to be turned on and off with the switch button and rod. If you put in a new switch, ( # 28161075 ), your problem should be fixed. ... Vacuums
Could I have a short in my cord? I can vacuum & then when I move the canister it shuts off, if I wiggle the cord it will turn back on. This last time, it just revs like a car trying to start & then does nothing. I live in a VERY remote area (80 miles from nearest Wal-Mart or McDonalds) so I know I will not be able to find someone to repair this for me. I have great doubt that I will be able to do it myself & my husband is an accountant so he is unavailable for another 6 weeks!!!!! Any suggestion

Miele vacuum Sometimes when I hit the auto roll up cord button or even move the cord, the power vacuum goes off. I move the cord again and it comes back on. I took it apart and looked at the connection from the cord to the auto roller. These are the electrical slip on type connections and are still in good shape. There are no bends in the cord. I air dusted everthing inside, put it together (with no extra parts!). Good news..it powered up so I did not break it, but it still has the same problem.
I own an Oreck 2310RS upright vacuum cleaner. The cord is too short for my needs. The cord I need is a two wire 25 to 30 foot cord. Where can I buy this vacuum cord and how do I connect it? Thanks, Don
