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.

first things first...take the powerhead off of the front of the kirby. If you look at where the powerhead connects to the front of the kirby you'll see a large hook...turn the hook using the crank on the front of the powerhead so that the belt is pulled up and away from the brushes. The hook stretches the belt so that it can fit over the fan drive.
Next, place the two "feet" of the powerhead onto the "perch" on the front of the kirby....lock it on by turning the silver lever on the top of the kirby (the one under the hood/light)
then turn the belt lever from off to on.
the G5 should have a light on the powerhead that comes on (green) if the belt is spinning the brushes. That will let you know if you've got it on correctly.

I have shot an excellent video repair on how to replace the belt on Kirby Generation Vacuum Cleaners including your Generation 5 (G5). The belt change procedure is the same for Kirby Models G3-G10 Sentria. The video is below in an easy to follow, and understand video. Feel free to use the pause controls to pause the movie as you're fixing the belt on your Kirby.
I hope this video was able to teach you the exact process of how the Kirby belt has to be installed in order for it to work properly. Please, if you have any questions just request a clarification of the repair and I'll be more then happy to help you further, I'm always happy to answer any questions. If you found this video helpful, please kindly rate this repair solution as helpful also. I really do appreciate it, thank you.
Thanks for watching!
