Check tech drive sensor, where handle connects to main unit, but you need to open cover off and greese handle slider.

On the rear of the G5D Kirby there is 2 levers that mash with your foot , one is grey and marked with an "N" the other is green and marked "D", what is its purpose


Hi,

"D" is for Drive, "N" is for Neutral. You cannot use the vacuum or even roll it into another room until the D is depressed. I believe Neutral is for bag and filter changes, repairs, etc. My thought is that it is designed that way so you can vacuum stairs without having it roll off the step......

So, if you run into the problem sometime that it won't roll, be sure the D is pressed.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Kirby g5 techdrive n/d pedal came off will not stay on


The pedal will need to be replaced. A shift mechanism pressed on the end of the shaft has come off and cannot be re-installed. The drive unit must be removed from the machine, and the pedal assembly and shift cam can then be replaced. This may not be a do-it-yourself repair, as a good deal of disassembly is required.

The techdrive of my Kirby Vac fell off why and how do I fix it. I am an electrician.


The pedal assembly must be replaced, 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 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.

Gear shift fell out


This is an easy fix you do not have to fully remove transmission it does help to lower it down by removing screws. Then try to get the right angle and realign the splines I have fixed mine twice, the second time I put thread locker on it and have not had any problem. Steve

Our Kirby G5D won't start.


Make sure that both safety switches( in front and the bag are) are engaged. To see the video how to correctly attach the nozzle and bag go to:
http://www.goodvac.com

If it doesn't help, then most likely it is a switch. You can buy one on the same website.

Good Luck,

Kirby micron magic g5d 120v.50/60hz lost owners instuction manual


Hello, Here is a link to the shampooer instructions and you will also be able to find a manual there. The G5 manual is out of print, but ANY G series manual will work as they are all exactly the same with difference of color.

Transmission not engaging


In Kirby vacuums with tech drive there is a part called Bracket cam (see it here) that is designed to disengage wheels from transmission. When it starts wearing out Kirby would make crackling noise when on neutral and eventually may not disengage at all. If there was no stage where it was noisy on neutral it may be something else - most likely the pedal assembly broken (see it here). It is not very hard to replace it.
