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

I have a hoover windtunnel upright vacuum, It will not shut off and I have to unplug it to do so. If I take apart the upper handle and manually flip the internal switch it works just fine, only when using the external switch on the handle, wont shut off.


This is a common problem with this machine. The switch has too much resistance to be turned on and off with the switch button and rod. If you put in a new switch, ( # 28161075 ), your problem should be fixed. ... Vacuums

I have a Kirby G5 vacuum that when light pressure is put on the handle it moves forward but in a jerky movement. Like the drive is engaging and disengaging. If you keep forward pressure on the handle the jerkiness does not happen. Is there an adjustment to correct this.

I bought my Hoover...U5180-910...@ my local Wal-Mart. It is literally falling apart. The sweeper has NOT been abused. Yes, we have 2 cats & a dog but the problems I am having w/ it should not be warranted. The handle has broken. The wheel/roller on the bottom of the machine has broken off & now it has just stopped working. I repeat, this vacuum has NOT been treated badly @ all. I can not be w/out a vacuum. Thank you for your help, hopefully. Debi

G-5 Kirby self-propel works intermitently. The handle must be jiggled until it engages forward. The same for reverse. Once underway it will continue indefinitely until the need to change direction. Jiggle go forward,jiggle go in reverse. It seems as though it helps to push the handle at an angle to the left depressing the switch on the left side at the base of the vacuum head.


Sounds like a loose wire, the wire is connected to the handle, you may be able to fix this yourself but be careful you can void the warranty by doing it your self. (most people make the problem worse) remember your kirby has a lifetime warranty (limi ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
