Having problems with your Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

My Kirby G3 diamond series won't turn on

\015 I have a Kirby G3 diamond series (purchased new in 2003) that will not turn on by pressing the foot pedal on/off switch. \012I took it to a shop that repairs vaccums a few days ago. I didn't even think to look on the net to try and fix myself.\012I'd like to know if I can fix the pedal. The shop said they will charge me $25.00 for looking at my vacuum, if they fix, that will go toward to fix price, but if they give me a price I cannot afford, I'll pay the $25.00 and take my Kirby home to fix if it's worth it financially and if I can fix it. Thank you so much in advance for any advice.\012Michelle\015

Hi There, The most common problem by far is that the cord is faulty. This is a pretty easy repair to do at home. If your machine was randomly cutting out before it stopped altogether then the cord is likely the culprit. If however it stopped all of a sudden with no warning then it is possibly a switch or motor issue which is a much harder repair to achieve for a novice.
The kirby cords are not terribly expensive (and I have linked a how to video showing how its done) so if you need a new one I would say DIY is the go, otherwise spend the $25 get a pro to take a look.

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha

Brush turning slowly while shampooing. It starts out fast, but after a minute or 2 the brush is not spinning very fast. I have powered it off and let it cool down. I just started out so I can't believe the engine is over heating, just doing 2 rooms, can't even get through the first room. If I take the brush attachment off, then put it back on and then turn it on, it spins fast, but after a a few minutes, it's spinning softly/slowly again. Kirby diamond edition
