Having problems with your Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Turned off but won't turn back on
\015 I was vacuuming and the front of the vacuum hit the desk and the machine shut off and won't go back on. What can the problem be?\015
Your power switch might have become detached from the motor. you will need to get that fixed. if that is not the problem, then take off the head to where you see the fan. turn the vacuum on, and press the safety switch. if the motor turns on, then you just need to make sure that the head is on right. if it doesn't turn on, take it in for service immediately!!
There is a safety switch where the front head connects to the machine, sometimes, readjusting the head will be enough.

Hi. I borrowed my friend's Hoover VC340 to clean my house. I was vacuuming when i noticed the cannister was full, so I turned the vacuum off, pulled out the barrell, and followed the instructions on the barrell to empty it. I put it back into the machine, but it wont turn back on. I tried different power outlets, but to no avail. any thoughts?
Wont re-assemble I took the bottom plate off to clean out the rotary bush and can not get the plate back on! I think it is the position of the roller but no matter which way I place it when i turn it , it flicks back into the place that means i cant put the plate back on!
Assuming you did not remove the brush roller to clean it and consequently did not reseat it, I am guessing that the bottom plate is not reinstalling as it should. On some uprights, the bottom plate hooks in at the front and is latched in place with c ... Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha

It looks like you need a professional repair. If you're really lucky this may just be a break in the flex, or the switch has failed - both relatively cheap and simple to sort out. More likely, though, is a problem with the motor (carbon brushes worn ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
