I have tried to get a parts breakdown for your vacuum cleaner with no success. The way that then washers should go is the flat smotth metal washer on the inside followed by the fibre washer and the wavy washer on the outside. The waves are used to bite into the plastic so it cannot work loose.

There are 2 tabs that stick out on the release, they fit in slots, so from the top look down and you can see them, using a flatblade screwdriver that will fit in there, push the side in to release it, which isn't easy, but it can be done. When you get the old one out, then the new one, push down on it until it locks into place.

in the front on the bottom you will see 2 slots put a small screwdriver in and push up on the clips in the slots and the bottom cover will come off .be careful not to break the clips.just push up on the clip and pull out on the cover at the same time.before you replace the belt clean the old rubber off the motor shaft first ,if you don't the new belt won't last very long

The foot pedal to go from drive to nuetral on my G series fell off and i cant seem to get it back in


The pedal assembly must be replaced,( part # 558401S), 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 off. Four screws hold the upper motor shell 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 and washer to secure it, re-install the drive unit. The shift must be in the Drive position to install it, and remember to 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.

The TechDrive Pedal on my Kirby G6 fell out of the back of my vacuum cleaner. I removed the screws from the metal plate one the bottom to try to see if something had come a loose. Can you send me a diagram...


This requires removal of the transmission assembly and replacement of the pedal assembly - it cannot be repaired. The handle and upper motor shell must be remove to access the transmission assemby. There are two screws in front, and two under the plastic switch plate.

I did the same thing to mine, I was lucky enough to have both pieces lying in place. I still had to take it apart to get to the other parts and cleaned the off with acetone and I use "Gorilla Super Glue" can be found most anywhere for $5 for a 0.53oz bottle. It's pricey but it works. Mine has lasted for about a year now with switching the leaver often enough to forget that I ever had to glue it till now! Main thing to do is to make sure the pieces are held in the proper alignment until the glue has fully cured it says 30 seconds but I would put a few layers on the broken area and let dry for 15 minutes before reinstalling it, make sure you check the piece for proper fit before you glue it permanently. The reason I used this over a JB Weld or similar was due to the narrow hole that it goes through right where I broke it. JB Weld needs to have a small build up to work and this is a "flexible"Super Glue meaning it won't just snap and break if it's under force of twisting or bent slightly like an epoxy or a Crazy Glue liquid or gel will.this is the part you are asking about correct?zinda_0.jpgzinda.jpg

I unscrewed the 4 screws on the bottom of my gen 3 mistakenly trying to replace wheels. now it turns on sometimes when the on button is pushed and sometimes it doesn't. is there an easy fix?


Easy fix... wow... um.. maybe.

I think that you may have accidently disconnected the metal arm between the foot pedal and the actual switch. Its not a problem, but you will have to open the top of the kirby unit to see if it has been disconnected or not. we are trying to get to the area above the wheels but below the foot switch.

first, take the handle and the bag off the unit and lay them down.
next, take the plastic covering around the switch off, you will need a flat screwdriver to take that off. the pry spot is just above the switch where you can slide in the screwdriver.
next, lift up the light and remove your belt/brush attchment off the front of the unit.
remove the 2 screws at the top portion looking just above the shaft sticking out of the unit.
remove the 2 screws behind the foot switch
you should see what looks like a 7/L chrome metal bar going between the footswitch and an orange plastic piece inside the unit where the bag goes. it should be inside the orange plastic piece and inside the lower portion of the footswitch.

I think that when you dropped the wheels it may have come off of the footswitch. re-attach and you should be good to go.

Good luck.

How do I fit the foot pedal back on on a SEBO


This is much easier to do than to describe! Your question suggests that you plan to re-fit the same pedal that has come off, so first you need to be sure that nothing actually broke when it came off. You should be able to clip the plastic part back on to the metal part - it should stay there and not fall off (if it falls off, you need a new one). The trick is to get the flat metal part correctly located in the plastic part, so with the plastic part not clipped on, pull the metal part down and rest it in the plastic part, then push the plastic part in to position. The flat metal part should then be trapped behind two projections on the plastic part, so that there is some movement, but not much. These projections may possibly have worn away, allowing the pedal to come away in the first place, in which case you will need a new piece.
I hope this helps. If so, please remember to rate this response as I value feedback. If you need more help, just post a reply here and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Good luck!

The toggle pedal you push to engage/disengage the wheels fell off


The screw head is probably what's called a torx screw, and you can get torx screw drivers and sockets at the hardware store.

Foot Pedal was knocked out of alignment


You will have to take the top loose so you can put the handle release in its place. It probably isn't in the right place, either that or a piece of it broke off and it needs to be replaced.

Broken upright locking mechanism


I need to know what brand the vacuum is. Various brands have different ways of locking the handle, but most incorporate a pedal that engages the handle. It sounds like you will have to replace the pedal. I hope it's not the handle portion. That becomes more complicated and expensive to replace.
