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??

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

I was using kirby g5 and I think I stepped on cord and lost power on vacuum. Now it won't start. Could this be a damaged cord..or what?
Either that, or it was pulled so hard, it came disconnected from the vac switch. stepping on a cord rarely affects power. so, check vac switch and outlet to make sure the outlet has power.\015\012\015\012(if you know an electrician or if ... Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Kirby Sentria won't start. I have read there are several safety features on it. Does anyone know the trick to get it to get power?
The bag needs to be locked into place at the base ( the hard part under the cloth bag, called the mini emptor ), and the nozzle must be locked on. If it still won't come on, it probably has a bad cord ... Vacuums

Electrolux Centralux I have a Electrolux Centralux. When I plug the hose in at one of the wall outlets the motor will not start. If I go to the motor and slap the unit it will start.....then...it will not stop unless I unplug the power cord to the motor. If I plug the power cord back in, the unit will not restart until I slap the motor unit again. The unit has only been used 20 - 30 times. Any suggestions?? Thanks, Bruce

The power head of my DC 21 keeps cutting off as soon as I start moving the hose around. The only way to get it going again is to step on the main switch on the canister, then the whole cycle of off and on starts again. I have replaced the entire power head and tested the continuity of all the wires in the hose and they are good. The repair shop says the PCB is bad but can not get one. What can I do ?
Not much. my only suggestion is to dig through the internet and try and find that pcb it may take awhile but it would be worth a shot. if you dont think you can make the repair take it to repair shop with new pcb and let them do it. ... Dyson Genuine DC-21 "Stowaway" Spare HEPA Filter, Dyson

I have a miele S712 (2 yrs old worked fine yesterday) - I had been doing some diy work inside and had the vac on just to reduce some of the dust in the air - after a while the vacuum fizzled out. I guessed it had overheated and took it outside to cool down - when I tried to turn it back on pressing the power button gives it power and it starts to **** but it won't STAY on, soon as you release the power button it stops, and the orange bag indicator is showing full. As I have a compressor I took

My dyson DC05 has been playing up for a while. The motorhead would start fine with green light on and after a few minutes would stop and light would go green. then the power would go on and off - seemed to only work when I had the handle a certain way.
