The axle for the rear wheels have worn into the cut outs in the body that it goes through and they are rubbing on the wheel wells. This common for this vacuum model , the only real fix is to replace the body assembly. Sears will have to do this, this is NOT somthing you want to tackle by your self.
As for the machine locking upright that is the release lever and it just needs to be replaced.

Hard to push


There may be a dial or something to set your unit to "floor" or low, and "High", all for the type of carpet or flooring you are vacuuming... change the setting to the middle or "floor"/ low.

On the other hand, here is a silly experience we may be sharing- sometime these units have wheels set so that, when the unit is "parked" or upright, wheels come down in the back, thus pushing the front down. You can turn it on, but the wheels won't go back into the unit until you move the handle from the upright position... My ex spent 15 minutes trying to get the vacuum to be normal- and all she had to do was just get the handle back at 2 or 4 o'clock position, and it worked fine...
if that's what you did- you aren't the only one! :-)

Good luck.

G series kirby ultimate the wheel fell off and its on the side with the height adjustment....all fell on to floor when it came apart....how does that wheel stay on is there a part missing or do you just...


I cleaned the end of rod and the hole in the wheel, and then forced the wheel back on the rod. A little bit of glue at the end of rod will help to keep wheel stay.

The wheels fell off.


The wheels are held to the axles with small c-clips. Perhaps these have come loose. If the wheel is still attached to part of the axle. The axle has broken and will need replacement.

Dyson dc07 will not lock into upright position


- Stand behind the vacuum cleaner and look at the right-hand side wheel
- Remove the AI PIPE (it has two purple buttons that you push together to lift it up and out - it looks like a Tuba)
- Lay the handle down and look for a black button that will be exposed in front of the square hole
- Stick your index finger and middle finger into the vacant AI Pipe Hole (the square hole)
- Reach over with your thumb and press the black button in front of the square hole
- Whilst pushing the black button, lift your index finger and your middle finger and move the gray plastic piece up (lift the square hole basically)
- Remove your fingers from the square hole
- Lift the handle and stand your machine back upright again
- Place the AI Pipe back into the square hole

Carpet Height Adjusment


In addition to the tab that contacts the bottom of the slider, there are 2 protusions on the adjustable wheel plate that move through holes in the housing, but only when the handle is tilted to begin vacuuming. The wheel plate has a spring that forces the tab against the slider. As the handle is moved to the upright position, the protusions move back through the holes, taking the tab away from the slider and the wheel plate locks in its highest position. Therefore, the position of the slider has no effect while the handle is upright and locked. Hope this helps.
