Having problems with your Kirby Heritage II Vacuum ?
Fuse for Kirby vacuum
\015 I believe this is Kirby Model 1-HD. It stops working, I tested the electrical cable and the power switch with a voltage meter and they are good. There is current on the black wire to the motor but there is no current on the green wire to the motor. Does this unit have a fuse? I do not see one yet.Thanks,Henry Doan\015
I had this problem with a model 1-HE. It was caused by a bad connection at a slide switch mounted on the side of the motor housing. The switch is operated by a lever when the front cover is in place. I think it is a safety system to stop the motor operating when the cover is off. Check for operation of and connection through the switch when the cover is on.
If it's anything like the Heritage II model 2HD, you may find this useful. We got this oldy-but-goody from my in-laws (with issues of course), and just tonight my stepdaughter was complaining about the fact that we never buy anything new with a good warranty. I pondered whether there is such a thing when it comes to vacuum cleaners. Anyway, I started taking it apart, and learned that both the hose and roller housing depress a plunger or actuator, to close a safety switch. Ours was simply dirty. Considering that you have a meter, you could try ringing it out. I didn't have any contact cleaner, but WD40 worked fine to clean up the contacts. One nice thing about the switch, was the markings for the different colored wires: G Y R W from front to back. It's a beautiful thing...when something is built so well, it's just meant to keep running. I wish Kirby would make automobiles. Hope this helps, Kevin H.

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 bought our Kirby less than 5 years ago and lately are not happy with it....it keeps breaking. The warranty has expired and our biggest complaint is that it has lost it's suction power. All the contents stay in the hose when I vacuum out the car or upholstery and it does vacuum well at all. The Kirby store quoted us over $200 to fix/ service it. Apparently this is not covered in the free yearly maintenance which we just had done. Any suggestions?
