Is there a manual I can download online for the
Kirby Ultimate G Series Diamond Edition, Model G7D?


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. My suggestion is that you contact the Kirby Co in Cleveland listed below and they will instruct you either to down load a owner’s manual or they will mail one out to you, there might be a local Kirby dealer in your area that might have a manual as well. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Ouch...
You need new pedal assembly. Just Google 558401S . I saw one for $16.10.
You can try to fix it just you would have to install it back at a certain angle. clean shaft very well with alcohol so it is completely grease free and use a drop of superglue. However this is not likely to hold for longer period of time.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Green light on power nozzle of Kirby vacuum, Model G7D

The green light is just to inform you that the brushroll is spinning. there is a magnet on the brushroll that makes the green light come on every time it rotates. also why it looks like the light flickers because the magnet only makes contact once per rotation of your brushroll. Let me know if you have any other questions.

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.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best lace to get the owner’s manual for the Carpet Cleaning System for the Kirby Ultimate G Diamond Edition is to contact the Kirby factory cust serv dept and give them the model # and serial # is needed and they should be able to send out an owner’s manual for you as per the conversion t the carpet cleaning system. The phone # and the website address for further assistance. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
