Question about Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum
My Kirby G5 when using Tech Drive does not go forward and back with its own power. The rubber treds on wheels are in tact. I notice the difference between N neutral and D drive being in D is easier to push but only moves at my speed. The vacuum does not go forward or backward with much power. What would you think the problem is?
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
