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 of. Four screws hold the motor cover 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 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

How and where do find the switch to activate self propel unit in G4 series kirby


To place the kirby G4 into gear - out of Neutral - just press down with your foot, the Gray & Green lever that is labeled N on the left side of the lever, which is gray, and D on the Right side of the lever which is Green (probably for GO). It is located directly below the Power button.

Good Luck

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 auto drive doesnt work. The lever even fell off the back.


Its not a simple fix, it will involve some disassembly of the motor unit, especially if the mechanism would not change from neutral to drive. One of the vac experts at vacuumland.org, a collector and enthusiast website, may be able to provide detailed instructions with pictures.

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.

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.
