The brushroll is held onto that baseplate by the metal brackets on either end of it. You have to slightly bend them outward to remove the brushroll.

Hi, the motor could be overheating. Most vacuums have a heat sensor that shuts the vac. off if there is a clog. Let it sit, feel if it's hot. If so you may have a blockage of dirt etc. Try to clear it, let it cool and tart it up. I hope this helps, if not let me know with more details and we can narrow things down Chris

If it is an upright, the drive belt could have disintegrated.

The light clips into the top and mid point of that black on off switch.
It is the biggest pain to see those 2 entry terminals on the back of that switch and the only way is to cut those white tie wraps that go around the light wires to the pot metal frame to get just the extra amount you will need.

A good light source and a sharp pair of needle nose pliers will be needed to push the 2 light plugs into that main black switch.

I used to dread that when replacing those entire switches until getting used to it.

Another note that if you get the motor wires reversed when plugging them into that switch......it reverses the motor and will blow instead of suck.

Hope this helps!

Assuming the rug nozzle is currently attached, lift up the headlight hood. Twist the belt lifter (black plastic square) on the rug nozzle counterclockwise to remove the belt tension. Then pull the accessory lock up until the rug nozzle comes loose of the Power Plant. You will notice two hinges at the bottom that hook on the the Power Plant's attaching bar. Gently lift up the rug nozzle to unhook it from the attaching bar.

Now your Kirby is naked. You will notice two small hooks on the hose attachment--hook them over the attaching bar, place the end of the hose attachment firmly against the Power Plant, then push the accessory lock down to clamp the hose in place.

You are now ready to use your Kirby with the hose attachment.

We do carry a brand new Heritage II hose here. I do not know how you would cut and reattach the hose without losing hose integrity. You can try submerging the end in warm almost hot water and pulling off the end, cut the hose, and squeeze the end back in. But your hose will be shorter and I am not sure if it will work depending on how it is torn.

you take off the front assembly, un-clip the bottom assembly where the brushes are and there are 3 different heights of the brushes just rotate it and continue to use unless you have already used all 3 sides, I, II, III are the options make sure both sides are on the same, refit back into assembly and make sure you clip the bottom back together and them replace back on to machine
