The outer vacuum bag stink. We were told it could be washed. Is that true?
Yes. You can take the filter bag off the Kirby. just press the button at the top of the bag to release the bag, and just unscrew it at the base... and hand was in warm water using some nice smelly detergent.... hang out in the sun to dry..... and replace the paper filter bag more often.... I need to as I have 3 dogs and the dog hair does smell after a few days inside the filter bag, so I replace the filter bags quite often to stop any smelling... Bugbuyer

Sparks from the Kirby Motor
1. Do you think this may be the problem?
2. How come it continues to rotate?
Motor armature consists of multiple coils and just some of them burned so even though it keeps spinning it does not function properly.
3. Do I need to replace the armature?
We have switch replacement instructions HERE and they will take you as far as accessing the motor. We do not have motor assembly instructions yet but if you get that far - motor is not that hard to reassemble. You may have to spend some time getting tolerance ring back in and make sure you install finger spring properly.

How do I get my zipper unstuck on my Kirby Vacuum 100
You might try some lubricant like Vaseline ,sewing machine oil ,DW40 or even cooking oil and after you have soaked the zipper and along the track both ways use a pair of pliers or similar to grasp the zipper and move it in the direction that should open the zipper ! this might be difficult at the start so dont use excessive force in fact a push and pull method often works best ( or pull one way and then the other )because a realignment of the zippers teeth is often what is required and forcing the zipper can often tear them away from the material and a zipper replacement would then be necessary, other causes of stuck zippers are things like stray cotton or material caught up in the teeth and zipper ! If you do end up having to force the zipper maybe replace the zipper with a strong Velcro or a more robust zipper with larger teeth .
