Having problems with your Kirby Heritage II Vacuum ?

Kirby Heritage II not starting

\015 OK, I just spent $70.00 getting a front motor bearing replaced and a tune-up. Two weeks later, I replaced my second belt, only to find out the rolled was frozen and unable to turn. Now, it should be good to go for a few more years, right??? Wrong!! My daughter used it to vacuum the upstairs and carried it downstairs. Now, it will not turn on. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

I had the same problem and it ended up being the switch (underneath the drive that turns the belt).  
I took the a safety switch off of another vacum 
cleaner and replaced it and it is now working. 
There is a safety switch and if it's not connected right, the vacuum will not run. Readjust the front case where the brushroll is, taking it off and putting it back on might be enough.

My Kirby Heritage II vacuum is not picking up dirt up out of the carpet like usual, and I have to keep setting it lower to pick anything up. I finally get it to such a low setting that it starts sucking the carpet up and makes a whirring noise, and starts smelling. Every time this happens, we find the belt has been burned. We are wondering if the brush roll inside with the brushes that pick up dirt are worn out and too short?

I currently own a kirby heritage II, and love the cleaning power it has, but....it is becoming harder and harder for me to manuever it, do to arthritis. Are the newer kirby's any easier? If so, how much? If not, what vacuum would you recommend for me?

I have a Kirby Dual Sanitronic '50' Vacuum Cleaner I bought in 1966. The motor does not start when I attach the belt lifter of the rug nozzle. When I remove the rug nozzle and detach the belt from the motor fan shaft the motor starts when I depress the nozzle switch and the power switch . Seems like the brushes in the motor are worn out. I do not have a manual for this unit. Can you assist me as to what newer unit is this compatible to and the problem I'm having at present??

Kirby Sentria Hi, I have a new Sentria & used it for the first time today. It was going fine & then I could smell smoke & it started to make a loud noise so I turned it off quickly. If I turn it on it immediately starts making the noise again & I can see it is all lit up inside like something is burning or sparking. I have checked the roller & it is moving & I have checked the fan which is moving & doesn't appear to be damaged in anyway. This product is from the US & we are in the UK & we are us


Sounds like the motor burned up. not sure if travel adapters will handle a large load like a motor, around 8 or amps. power needs in US are 110 volts ac, 60 hertz.I believe UK is 220 volts and 50 hertz. usually when a vac is brought to eu ... Kirby Vacuums

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

There is no way to snap the roller out and it seems that trying to unscrew the end isn't doing anything either.Model 5584 renovation group is what is written on the shampooer attachment.
