Having problems with your Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Kirby G4 spaking after repairs???

\015 Hi, I have a Kirby G4 and i'v replaced the carbon brushes myself using a step by step guide however since its been back together it worked for about five minutes it then started sparking from the inside!!(a lot!!) I'v obviously touched something i shouldn't have but haven't a clue what!! Any suggestions would be appreciated! :)\015

Answers :

Often the armature needs to be resurfaced when the brushes are replaced...Why were you replacing the brushes? Did the fan break?
\012It's really not that expensive to take it to a Kirby dealership for repair. Will run forever....Also it came with a lifetime rebulid warranty so even if it's trashed you can ship it back to the factory for rebuild for like 200 bucks :)

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,

We have a 2001 Kirby G vacuum. The cleaning lady was using it in one room, then brought it to another room and plugged it into another receptacle. It wouldn't start. Naturally we tried other outlets on other circuits without success. Is a switch or motor demise this abrupt? Is it worth pursuing repair?


Hi,Such an abrupt fault is more than likely a very simple fault, such as a loose wire or damaged electrical cord or a faulty switch. I would most certainly check or have these components checked before purchasing a new machine. They should be r ... Vacuums

Kirby Heritage II. Beater bar does not turn. One end rotates freely, but the other sticks, preventing the bar from rotating. No obvious means to disassemble the end of the bar. Is there a way to repair this, or does this require replacement of the beater bar? Did clean the front end assembly, and removed all hair, threads and similar obstructions.


The bearing is bad on the end that turns hard. You will need to purchase a new brush roll assembly. If the roller is older that 4 or 5 years, it should be changed anyway. The brush strips that scrub the carpet loose their strength after many years of ... Vacuums
