Tech drive lever fell off

Was quoted $100 just to open it up. So I opened it myself, then saw on this site that the lever can fall off. Now I need some help getting it back on correctly and getting the other pieces to go back in where they are supposed to. I tried the phone number to contact this site but it just kept ringing.

How do you replace the drive/neutral lever (foot pedal) if it falls off? (The yellow and gray lever that you step on to put it into drive or neutral.) Not sure what happened but it just fell off. Now I...

The pedal assembly must be replaced,( part # 558401S), as it has a gear pressed to it which has come loose. The handle, switch plate, and upper motor cover must be removed first. To remove the plastic switch plate, remove it's screws and insert a flat screwdriver into the rectangular slot in it to pop it of. Four screws hold the motor cover in place. Next the switch button must be removed. The Techdrive assembly can be removed by removing the three screws on the bottom. Drop the drive down, and unhook it's belt from the gear on the end of the armature shaft. The pedal assembly can be removed by removing the remaining screw from the bottom of the drive unit. The N/D pedal has two parts - the pedal itself, and the shift cam. Observe carefully how these units fit together. After installing the new pedal and replacing the screw and washer to secure it, re-install the drive unit. The shift must be in the Drive position to install it, and replace the belt. Be sure to line up the arm on the drive unit so that it engages the slot at the base of the handle pivot and re-install the other items

I can't keep the attachments from falling off while in use. I suspect I need new hardware, but cannot find instruction for Fein msx 636 II

Are you fully opening the lock lever when you are putting the attachments on? If you are new to the machine, you need to fully open the locking lever on top, insert the attachment and be sure it "seats" in the shaft holder and then close the locking lever and be sure it is tight.

Bissell proheat used does not put out water

The spring your talking about goes where the trigger switch is. You need to dismantle the entire unit to access this, remove 6 screws on hood, two main handle screws, two tool caddy screws and finally two lower back housing screws. Removed top handle and gently open unit up

Kenmore 31913 Foot pedal release lever broken-need to replace

FixYa techs - thank you for your response but I solved the problems. It took me 2 hours of continual searching but I finally found the parts - listed under the tab sew machines of all things!? There is one pedal in stock and I called the service company and will pick that up and do it myself. I took that part off my vac and put it back on so know I can do it. I've been fixing stuff all my life and it just takes some logic - anyone can do it if they have a tool kit.

I have a kirby ultimate g diamond series. The tech drive lever just fell off. How can I fix this?

You need new pedal assembly. Just Google 558401S . I saw one for $16.10.
You can try to fix it just you would have to install it back at a certain angle. clean shaft very well with alcohol so it is completely grease free and use a drop of superglue. However this is not likely to hold for longer period of time.

Good Luck

Floor cleaning / tools or pretreat lever appears to be broken

That grey lever needs to be closed while floor cleaning. You only open it when you use the hose.

Kirby G5 Transmisson

I know the lever you're describing, but it's very hard to tell someone how to put it back on. There's nothing wrong with your transmission, by the way, this is a part that's meant to be moveable, and it just happened to slip off in your case. You may call us at 1-866-509-1952, and we can do our best to help you.
