Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

I have the bag unhooked and the hose connected to the motor which has engaged the safety switch but the Kirby will not turn on to blow air


Answers :

Blower instructions HERE. It MUST help.
If you put it back together as VACUUM and it works with hose (attached to suction) and the nozzle - no problems with Kirby. Then you must not be turning the hose on the exhaust all the way. Sometimes it is pretty hard...Or maybe the safety sup plastic that presses the safety switch on the front of the unit is broken.

Good Luck,
Rocky

Hoover Upright Vacuum model U5470-900 - The On/Off switch on the handle does not properly engage the power switch deeper in the handle assembly. It appears to ride over the lower switch and doesn't engage it to operate it. If I play with it, I can get it to maybe turn on the vacuum, but, then the upper handle switch won't turn it off. Our current workaround is to use the power cord for on/off operation.

I have Nutone VX550C. Motor runs intermittently (cycles on and off rapidly--the light on the handle is blinking furiously) when I use the on/off switch on the hose. This happens at all of the wall connectors, so suggests a hose contact problem. Motor runs continuously when I turn it on at the switch on the wall unit.


The unit does have a switchs the PVC outlets, and it sounds like the hose mech to operate the switches is broken, and intermittently making contact. A replacement hose would likely fix the problem. Looked them up on the net, and they're not che ... Broan-NuTone VX550 Bagged Central System Vacuum

We have a Hoover upright vacuum cleaner, model Core 7. There is a switch that turns on and off the brush drive. This operates via a cam with a bearing putting pressure on the final drive belt to engage the brush head.

There appears to be only a bearing deflecting the belt, should there be a pully or other device mounted on this bearing? There is so much slack a
