Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Not coming on
\015 When I attach the brush head, the vacuum will not come on, but when I attach the hose it will. is the switch in the front defective?\015
Yes, if the little "nipple" on the power head that plugs into the switch hole isn't broken off, than you probably need a new switch. I have written a repair guide to do this repair yourself. The folks who have used it have found it to be very helpful. Just click on the link to view the guide...
Kirby switches are complicated and expensive. Replacing one is very involved and requires that the machine be almost totally dissmantled. It sounds like the agitator housing is not going on far enough to press the part of the switch that governs that function. Take the housing off again and re-install it and turn on the machine. If it still doen't run, grab the housing but the sides, (careful of the roller if it starts) and wiggle it or rock it. This will usually trigger the switch to come on. If not, you will probably have to refer the repair to a competent repair shop. This repair can cost almost $100.00. The switch itself can cost $60.00.

I have a Hoover Slider, Model #S2105, Serial #050500084989, and I need instructions on putting it back together; with parts and assembly of parts. I took it apart because it was making a noise, and I believe one of the belts had come off. However, when I took the screws out of the bottom to check the belts, the whole thing fell apart.

Electrical problem The light comes on but the motor will not come on when the on button is pressed. Is there a reset button? I thought it was because the bag was full but I just changed the bag and the motor still will not come on.
The light is separate from motor. No reset switch. Check for a fuse but i suspect it may be brushes are worn out and not making contact.Sometimes that starts as an intermittent.Hopefully one of the coils isn't open circuited. ... Sharp Twin Energy EC-12TWT4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
The automatic drain hose is hooked up to the back of the unit, but when the bucket is full, the automatic pump does not work. The automatic pump should come on and empty the bucket, but it does not come on unless the water is siphoned manually through the tube. Then the pump come on and empties the bucket. I have reattached the tube and still had to manually siphon the water through the tube. Any suggestions?
Any automatic pumps operate off a swith that is turned on when the water rises. They normally have some type of ball lift, that will raise the switch when water is high and then drops with the water and shuts the pumps off. It sounds like yours is ... Vacuums
I have a VX3000C Broan vacuum and the motor sometimes runs lower and comes back to normal time and time. Plus, now it lamost stops before coming back to normal speed. Can someone explain to me what that might be or if it did happen to someone else? It doesn't stop, but runs at very low speed and come back. It is like if a connection is not made properly. But it does the same at my 3 connections and I did check the one on the vaccuum itselfs.

Spare wire? My SEBO X4 flex had to have the fex shortened because the cable sheathing had come out of the internal gripper and there was a couple of inches of two strand wire hanging out the cable entry point before the insulation sheathing started. No problem doing this but on the live switch terminal there was a piggy back spade connector. The second wire from this went down inside the handle and just ended with a bare terminal hanging in space. It hadn't come off anything, there wasn't anyth
