Question about Kirby G6 Bagged Upright Vacuum
Self-propel is not working at all. Makes the vacuum very hard to move. It has never worked perfect. The salesman showed how it would basically move by itself in the drive position. It has never done that; however, it has always been easy to push until now.
See if the pedal is set on D
Check if there is some resistance to move pedal from N to D and back - maybe pedal is broken...
See if handle slides back and forth a bit (maybe slide is rusted)
if everything is fine - Inspect primary drive belt. That will require to get inside the vacuum... See instructions HERE
If everything above is ok - you may need to replace a tech drive.
