Default Re: Kirby Heritage 2HE

I would say its not the brushes.

Is there a known fault

Not as such, If it has the same setup as the Classic, you will find a multi lead switch low down at the front of the motor, behind the beater attachment, this can be fragile, cracked or may have moved, plus if an attachment is not fitted perfectly, IE beater head and so on, it will not work, the Kirby will light up but the motor will not work.
The switch can be problematic, being so low to the ground and plastic It can be a problem, look at this first.

I have two Kirby classics and I also have a backup motor, you never know.
