Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Kirby does not start.
Electric cord seams fine.
Does a Kerby have a fuse?
If you have tested the cord with a voltage meter, and are sure it is good, there are several other possibilities. The Kirby is designed so that it will not start unless the bag assembly and rug head ( or attachment hose ) are fully in place. Be sure the fiberglass housing at the bottom of the bag is tight against the side of the motor unit. If this is not the problem, your switch has probably failed and needs replacement. A less likely problem on a machine this new is that a carbon brush in the motor has either become badly worn, or is stuck in it's holder and will need replacement.

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,
