Having problems with your Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

My kirby won't work

\015 Iwas using the vaccum and I smelled something funny, it wasn't a burnt smell, but more of a perfumy smell. I then turned it off and changed to the hose attachment and it would not go on. It has a brand new power cord. The power light does go on, but nothing happens.\015

Answers :

It is the rubber belt that spins the brush. It must have worn out. Buy a new one.

I know that the green light should come on when it is working properly and it does not, so I am doing something wrong. I can attach the attachments no problem but I want to use

The hand-held wand wont slide back into the tube. It wont go down far enough to click in and become the handle again. It was working fine but all of the sudden won't fit back in.

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
