Broken transmission belt

My G5 has a broken belt inside the transmission and I can see the factory # still on it. PD 554289 , the local shops say they have never taken apart a tranny and that I need to buy a new transmission . this just does not sound right . there must be a way to buy a new belt again , I hope. thank you for any help .

    I have a G4 with the same problem. I bought a transmission belt online for $4.00 plus shipping took the vaccume apart and slowly managed to slide the new belt on the gears. It now works but I have a loose belt that makes some noise. Any suggestions on how to tighten a transmission belt? You don't need to replace the transmission right away. Try replacing the belt first.

Hi There, Is it the main drive belts from the motor to the tech drive? If it is the are very easy to replace by taking out the tech drive. If it's a belt inside the tech drive unit you will not be able to buy the belts anyway as they are classed from kirby as a sealed unit. Hope this helps Chris www.elidistribution.co.uk

My Hoover Whisper Cyclonic is collecting the dirt but not taking it into the cylinder. The brushes were at one point starting and stoping due to the belt periodically turning,now the brushes are turning...


You need to change the belt once every year. It's a good idea to take it to your local vac shop and have it serviced once a year also. They can fix this for you. Your belt is worn out.

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

Either the cogged belt broke, or you will have to pull the transmission and see if something came apart. May have to replace the transmission.

What can I do and what part do I need to replace? I have taken it apart and clean it but still won't pickup the water.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X Clean Shot Upright. It sounds to me that you may have a clog or an obstruction or the channel to the suction motor per say might be broken and is not creating the suction needed to pickup the water to the recovery tank. So check with your local factory authorized vac dealer that carries and services Bissell. I will give you the Bissell factory phone # listed below for further questions. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Kirby Ultimate G runs heavy


Hi, I'm Jon IO used to sell these machines and I also own an Ultimate G, And sounds like to me it's a loose or broken transmission belt, I think you should have your local Kirby dealer take a look at it or even a good quality vacuum shop will be able to look at it.
