Happens all the time. I think I fix about 40 Kirby's a year with that problem. If you're experienced with repairing Kirby vacuum transmissions, it's an easy repair. If not, you'll need the part and torx screwdrivers and a Youtube video, or you'll need a vac shop/service center.

I had the same thing happen on my Ultimate G. I just followed the instructions on a video on youtube on how to fix it.

I have two Kirbys with this problem too. One is a 2001 LE and the other is a Ultimate G.

Perfectly normal Kirby stuff.
Order of the replacement part simple enough.
Here's a video on how to change it with a link in the description to the part.

Here's another video discussing why the parts wear out the same as any other machine.

This is so common on the generation Kirbys. I can barely keep the pedals in stock at my store because I would say every 8/10 kirbys that come in for service need the pedals replaced. You have to drop the transmission out and remove the broken piece inside then fit the cam bracket and a new set of pedals together. I can honestly do it in my sleep at this point 😅
