No, you must have a problem with the transmission.

Tech drive has no power forward.


Dear Sir:
Download the instruction manual from Kirby, and see the section troubleshooting guide. And proceed according. If you say do not enough power. The batteries can be Not good replace or recharge very well.
Or test the power cord and trafo, and see if the power is o.k or replace. Use the VOM for to test the output voltage.
Another faulty can be the motor some winding inside is overheating and consequently faulty.
God bless you

Broken Lexan fan needs to be replaced


It is similar to the G4 but without the tech drive so is easier.

The vacuum drive makes a wining sound


Does It make the noise all the time or only when the machine is moving. If it does it only when you push the vacuum that noise is normal. The older Kirby transmissions make a whining noise when pushed.

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.

Kirby G5 - the Tech Drive does seem to have much power


you need either a new nutreal cam bracket assembly, that is what engages and disengages the tech drive.OR to adjust the handle pivot assy- diffucult . this is not for the faint of heart. it is possible to fix them as i used to repair kirbys, however, I remember how frustrating it was to figure out how to disassemble and reassemble them. it is very complicated to a novice. I would recomend having it repaired professionaly. it is possible for a professional to repair it in a very short period of time.

another thing to consider. look on the UNDERSIDE of your Kirby, between the two drive wheels. just in fronnt of the tech drive/nutreal switch. there should be a screw there, tighten that screw up. actually tighten all of them. on My generation 3 the center screw came loose and it would not go in to drive and it would make an aweful clatter. hope this was helpful

Vibrating and noisy Kirby


Power off the vacuum.

Unplug the power cord from the wall.

Remove the head or hose attachment.

Look at the fan and make sure all the fins on the fan are there.

If part of one or more is missing it will cause the fan to wobble and shake.
