    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.

Can't seem to pick up small items like lemon pips with Kirby G5. It just runs over them or pushes them backwards and forwards.


It sounds like your belt is broken, OR your beater bar is rotating but has not been adjusted downward to reach the carpet pile. Check by running the vacuum and looking to see if the beater is moving.

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

Trying to replace a broken belt


Here is the link to the detailed instructions for belt changing. When you take the brushroll out, make sure that the brushroll spins freely. If it doesn't it will burn up your belts and needs to be replaced.
