Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
At first, the lever to switch from neutral to drive was stuck in neutral - lo help with pushing the vacuum. Then the mechanism came off of the back of the vacuum. Is this something mu husband should be able to fix? Can you please point us in the right direction? If there are not directions for doing this online, what will it cost us to get this fixed?
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.

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.

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
