take off the bottom like you are replacing the belt. You will find a little metal clip that controls the upright lock. It may be lose or broken.

There is no release, the part is a plastic handle release lever, you can find those at www.hesco.com, the cost is approximately 2.29 each, I have replaced more than 20 of these on the commercial vacuums for my cleaning crew, the part is easily broken and easily replaced. I always have 6 or more on hand.
Turn the vacuum over, remove the bottom plate, with a flat head screw driver punch out the old part. turn the vacuum upright again after the broken part is removed. With the body laying back on a hard surface, carefully push in the new part. Unfortunately, these are plastic, too bad they cannot design a more sturdy part for this.

The red pedal has slipped out of position. On both ends of the red pedal you'll see metal rods (the axel of the pedal). On one side you'll see the metal rod sits into a long groove, on the other side you'll see the metal rod sits into a round hole. They both have to be in the long grooves so you have to reposition the rod that's into the round hole by pulling it out and sliding it back into the long groove above the round hole. You'll now be able to bring the handle up and lock the machine back into the upright position.

I have never touched a Kirby vacuum
before and my wife had the same issue. The neutral/drive pedal just fell
out so I figured I would give it a shot to see if I could fix it and
quickly figured out the 3 screws in the bottom plate for the drive
unit wasn't the answer.
I was able to figure things out out after I found
a parts list with diagrams at the follow web site and address:
Vac Parts Warehouse.com
The two parts involved are:
13. Bracket Cam Assembly Neutral Drive
16. Kirby Pedal Cam For Neutral Drive
Here's how to get to a point that you
can get these two parts in/out of the machine.
- Remove bag and fill tube from handle
and main unit
- Remove floor nozzle assembly
- Remove the handle via the two screws
at the handle fork plate (these have loctite on them so needed a
socket wrench with torex bits to get them out).
- Remove the plastic rear scuff plate
vie the screw with the power cord anchor and screw by the Pedal Cam
For Neutral Drive. Note release plastic tab in slot in the center and
lift from the back and then over the base where the handle attaches.
I did not do this as I removed the the
power drive assembly so I could figure out how to put the dive
assembly back together. The pressed on arm that drives the cam
assembly had pulled of the pedal shaft so this also made it easier to
fish out the parts and experiment on positioning the arm in the right spot . I found the arm and a spring washer inside.
I assume at this point you could
loosen the screw (don't remove it, it's the only one with a star
lock washer on it) on the bottom plate that attaches the Bracket Cam
Assembly and slide the Pedal Cam out and a new one in if you can
get the part and replace it. The part was 16. Kirby Pedal Cam For
Neutral Drive G6 558499A at Vac Parts Warehouse.com. The one listed
on the website said it was for a G6 even though the parts listing is
for a G5 so I don't know....
To continue to disassemble and take
the power drive assembly out:
- Remove the 4 screws from the Cover
Shell assembly - the metal top part. You do not need to remove the
hinged Headlight Cap that is attached to it.
- Remove the 4 screw from the bracket
assembly that has the handle attachment and forward/reverse switch.
It attached by two wires. I only disconnect one and swung it to the
- Snap off the the on/off switch and
disconnect from the Actuating Rod Foot Pedal to Power Switch.
- Remove the 3 screw from the bottom
plate of the power drive assembly.
- Remove the drive belt.
- The power drive assembly will now
drop out the bottom.
I just put the spring washer and arm
back on the shaft and reassembled. I'll see how long that lasts
before before buying the new part.
