The tech drive petal on my Kirby G5 fell off. How do I fix it?


Answers :

I assume you mean the pedal on the back of the transmission, if so, if has come apart, there is a piece that is pressed onto the shaft. Best to replace the pedal assm., the old one may not stay together anymore, you will have to pull the transmission out to replace it.

I have a Kirby G5 and need to replace the gear drive shaft, as the lever inside fell off and the shaft came out. (Common problem by the sound of it.) How do i remove the actual gearbox itself. I have removed the 3 screws on the bottom, but it's not coming out. What's stopping it from coming out? Do i need to remove the gearbox drive belt first? If so, how do i get to it? Thanks in advance.

I have a Series G Kirby Model G7D. The other day when I was vacuuming all of a sudden the TechDrive (Power Drive Assist N/D) pedal fell off. I see the hole that it goes into but when I put it in it's loose and falls out and doesn't control the power drive anymore. When I shook the vacuum I heard something rattling around inside the vacuum head. So I unscrewed the bottom and looked inside and found a small metal part labeled K3 on one side and T on the other side. It looks like it would fit
