It disengages as i'm vacuming. Very loud. no suction.


If it is very loud, you probably have a broken motor fan. Remove the carpet nozzle from the front and examine the fan for damage.

How do I replace a belt in my classic iii kirby vacuum cleaner


The below link leads to an excellent video on replacing the belt. It's for a newer model, but I believe they're pretty much the same.

Kirby G5 rear wheels lock up completely when in "Drive"


When wheels lock when vacuum is OFF - it is normal. If it happens when Kirby is ON then there are a few things that may have gone wrong

Primary drive belt is broken or something is wrong with plastic gears. See how to check the primary drive belt HERE.

If it is fine and gears are spinning - then something must be wrong inside the transmission. Parts for tech drive are not available from manufacturer so you are on your own. It is not really complicated - 2 clutches that engage and disengage depending which direction you push the vacuum. But if something in there is broken - you have to get a new tranny. It is not like getting a transmission for a truck but it still will set you back by about 100 $.

Good Luck
Rocky

Transmission not engaging


In Kirby vacuums with tech drive there is a part called Bracket cam (see it here) that is designed to disengage wheels from transmission. When it starts wearing out Kirby would make crackling noise when on neutral and eventually may not disengage at all. If there was no stage where it was noisy on neutral it may be something else - most likely the pedal assembly broken (see it here). It is not very hard to replace it.

REPLACING BELT KIRBY CLASSIC III
Posted by JETALBOT on July 19, 2008
I CAN'T REPLACE THE BELT ON THE CLASSIC III (KIRBY). CAN YOU HELP ME? ELAINE
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The belt install on a Kirby is to raise the height adjustment to the highest level and then dial the belt off counter clockwise so it is loose and not on the fan pulley, release the top lever on the bell housing, then remove the bottom plate and unhook the brushroll on one side, slide the old belt off and then slide the new one on, replace the brushroll with the screws facing the carpet and re-hook the bottom plate on the Kirby. Then take the bell housing and hook that back on to the Kirby and lock it down. Then dial the belt on clockwise all the way and the belt should be on the fan pulley. The belt should be ready to go, plug in your Kirby and then do the step down on the vacuum height adjustment until the tone changes, then try to see id it picks up, if not go one more height adjustment and that should be the correct setting.
