Having problems with your Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

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,

I have a Kirby G4 Vacuum Cleaner - MOdel G4 D. I have never had any problems or repairs done to it in the past ten plus years that I've had it. This is an upright vacuum. I was vacuuming the carpet floor and was not having any trouble at all. I switched the vacuum off and moved it into a different room. When I tried to turn on the vacuum, it would not turn on. I checked with different outlets, used both front attachment and hose attachment. Checked the front part of the motor/ spiral case. This

My Kenmore canaster vacuum Mod# 116.25513506 runs continously when plugged in regardless of the on/off hand controlled switch.. Disconnecting the switch located on the hose assembly has no affect of the continous vacuum operation. What component in the electric motor circuit is at fault and what would be the cost of repair?

I have an Electrolux Oxygen 3 vacuum I purchased rebuilt. After 1 month the power stopped working. I took it into Electrolux Authorized repair dealer, which was a horrible experience. When we received it back it was clearly not as powerful as before. Does anyone have any suggestions on what the problem may be? I would rather fix it myself than take it back to them. The next repair center is too far away. I am pretty good with fixing things, just needs some guidance. I think the repair center rep

DT 1300 As I am vacuuming the motor seems to fade in and out and sometimes stops running for a few seconds and then resumes. If I move the hose a bit near the vacuum end, it runs smoothly again. Does this sounds as if there might be a short in the motor? Would this be something I can fix myself or does the vacuum need to go in for repairs.

I press the on/off switch on the Dyson DC05 and the vauum cleaner switches on unfortunately when I stop pressing it it switches off again. Please advise how I would need to repair this. Many thanks. Regards Michael Segal

If you can make it work by holding the switch down then it must be the switch or a bad connection on it.

My Kirby G 2001 upright vacuum wont turn on. I tried another outlet and still nothing. I don't see a breaker switch anywhere. If you know of any common problems I would love to hear them. I am very mechanically inclined, I just was wondering if there are any common issues with the motors or power switches etc. so I don't waste a lot of time troubleshooting. Thanks

Dyson DC23 Vacuum shut off and came on. Thought it was a problem at the electrical outlet as when moving plug it would come on again. Seen canister was full, emptied it and cyclone was quite plugged up so poked out the dirt. Had dog hairs in it as well as some ashes I had just vacuumed. Plugged unit in again and pressed switch. Will not come on. Tried another outlet. Is there a reset button somewhere or could the ashes have seized the motor. What can I try besides taking it to a repair sho

Now that I just fixed my Lux Legacy canister vacuum, I need help on my other Electrolux Regency Series upright!

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

G-5 Kirby self-propel works intermitently. The handle must be jiggled until it engages forward. The same for reverse. Once underway it will continue indefinitely until the need to change direction. Jiggle go forward,jiggle go in reverse. It seems as though it helps to push the handle at an angle to the left depressing the switch on the left side at the base of the vacuum head.

Sounds like a loose wire, the wire is connected to the handle, you may be able to fix this yourself but be careful you can void the warranty by doing it your self. (most people make the problem worse) remember your kirby has a lifetime warranty (limi ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

My kirby is making a very loud noise and somehow the white fan inside has broken. I have the pieces. What do I need to do? I can't find a vacuum repair place near my location. Can I fix this myself?

What you need to do is a long process of taking apart the vacuum apart. Your fan broke so you are going to need a new one. So go to Kirbys website and look up a nearby vacuum store. Or More recommended a Kirby. It is a long process of taking the vacu ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

Kirby G3 made loud noise when running. Sprayed silicon in fan thinking it might be a bearing. Found a coin and nail in fan and removed. Tha vacuum would not turn on. Replaced switch and brushes. Still nothing. Did the silicon spray do something?

No - the silicon is an insulating material and would have no effect on the electrics of the vacuum. Most likely you have a bad connection - dismantle the vacuum again and check the wiring and the motor with an ohmmeter. Be very attentive with the bru ... Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I had the vacuum cleaner question about the canister and the wand/powerhead... the Kenmore Progressive Vacuum canister model 116.25812 and the canister not powering off without unplugging the vacuum. The solution I received that they both run on their own switch so it is normal makes sense. However, is there a power switch on the canister anywhere? The only way for the canister to be turned off is by unplugging it. Any ideas? One would think there would be a switch. I am new to fixya and hope
