Is there a re set button on a Kirby. Used the vacuum 2 weeks ago, worked just fine. Went to use it today and it won't start. Any ideas?

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,

My G7D kirby vac was accidently dropped and the D & N lever came out of the machine. When I put the lever back in the hole it belongs in it is very loose and it doesn't switch from D or N.


The drive/ neutral pedal assembly must be replaced. This part is pressed together and cannot be repaired. A new assembly is about $17-$20. The power drive unit must be removed from the machine.

THE NEUTRAL/DRIVE LEVER HAS COME AWAY FROM THE HOOVER AND SOME OF THE INSIDES HAVE ALSO COME AWAY. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER


I dismantled the cover, withdrew the gear drive assembly and found the bits that had come loose. The mechanism that selects neutral or drive had come away from its shaft. I simply put it all back together and tightened everything back up. Works a dream again.

The drive on my Kirby G-5 is stuck in forward.


Motor housing will need to be removed and transmission a linkage adjusted. Take to a pro shop for this one.

Kirby G6 clicks while in neutral


Bracket cam assembly (see and buy HERE). It is worn so it does not disengage gears completely. On the part listing you will also find the instructions on how to replace it.

Kirby G5 Transmisson


I know the lever you're describing, but it's very hard to tell someone how to put it back on. There's nothing wrong with your transmission, by the way, this is a part that's meant to be moveable, and it just happened to slip off in your case. You may call us at 1-866-509-1952, and we can do our best to help you.
