Re: Kirby G6 drive mode
Look under the vacume cleaner and take off the cover make, shure the belt is where it needs to be, you should have a setting on the vacume cleaner that gives you an addjustment for the carpet your on, raze it up.

I've had that exact issue with a Kirby Diamond Edition. What has happened is that the bracket inside the machine that activates the forward and back motion of the tech drive has come out of its slot. The only way to fix this is to disassemble the machine and put it back into place.
so when u pull it back it's like it's not engaged at all? then it maybe the reverse is out....with the fwd soon to follow. remember the vac is 20yrs old; & working that long? it definately served it's purpose.
depending how much money you wanna spend on it buying a new or used trans. plus labor...or just an ebay used unit.
I hope adjusting position of the position of the "pivot spring assembly" will help. but you may have to disassemble entire slide assembly to clean it up if it still does not work smoothly. See instructions HERE (adjustment is explained in step #6). Try to "play" with screws #4 and if it does not help - clean slid.
It could be that you have the brush settings wrong for your carpet type. Check if the brushes are on number 3, if so, try dropping them down a notch or two and see if that does it.
I think that the brushes when spinning spin towards you, so when pulling the vacuum back, the brushes are helping to drive, when pushing forward, you are pushing against the brushes. If the brushes are sticking out too far, it could cause bouncing/jumping.
