Having problems with your Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Carpet shampoo system

\015 When using the carpet shampoo system and moving the Kirby back and forth, only a narrow stream of water with very little foam comes out onto the carpet. I have the suds control valve all the way to the left but no luck. No suds is dispensed in the tray when the Kirby is pulled backwards. I used a whole tank of shampoo and didn't even clean a 9x10 carpet. Any ideas? Thanks a million. I am borrowing my friend's Kirby and she is not home to ask!\015\012Joyce\015

I KNOW THIS IS AN OLD POST BUT MANY PEOPLE MIGHT STILL FIND THESE ANSWERS USEFUL. I CAN ATTEST TO THE FACT THAT YOU NEED TO USE THE KIRBY SHAMPOO. I TRIED TO SAVE MONEY AND USE OTHER BRANDS BUT IT NEVER WORKED AND WOULD DISPENSE MOSTLY LIQUID INSTEAD OF FOAM. IF YOU USE THE KIRBY BRAND, YOUR SHAMPOO SHOULD FOAM AS IT IS DISPENSED. GO SLOWLY AS THE PREVIOUS RESPONSE SUGGESTS. ANOTHER THING... I WOULD SUGGEST RAISING THE HEIGHT A LITTLE SO THAT IT IS NOT TOO CLOSE TO THE FLOOR.
MY FIRST QUESTION IS WHAT BRAND OF SHAMPOO ARE YOU USING??? KIRBY IS NOTED FOR REQUIRING ONLY, KIRBY SHAMPOO. PART OF THE REASON IS THAT THEY HAVE A UNIQUE FORMULA THAT WORKS SPECIFICALLY WITH THE KIRBY.
\015\012THE OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THE DISPENSER IS PLUGGED AND NEEDS A REAL GOOD CLEANING. ALSO, WHEN APPLYING THE FOAM TO THE CARPET, YOU NEED TO GO REALLY, REALLY SLOW.
\015\012THE NARROW BAND OF SUDS DOES INDICATE YOU MAY BE MOVING THE DISPENSER TOO FAST. GOOD LUCK.

For the first time, I tried using my Kirby Sentria shampoo attachment. I've lost the manual but found instructions online for making the swap from regular vac to shampoo-er and got it all assembled. The foam laid down just fine, however, when I run the vac back over the foam to pick it up, there is not a stitch of water showing up in the tray. First I thought maybe it was bc I hadn't put that much of the foam/water onto the carpet, but 12 hours later, the carpet is still wet in spots. Clearly

My Kirby shampooer - G4 - hardly used any water from the tank and no suds at all. Pet hair did blow out of the small slotted holes in the tray as I moved the shampooer back and forth, but the carpet was basically dry. I did vacuum before shampooing, so the brush part seemed to work great during shampooing, but no water! The small screen was stuck in the crook of the hose that attached to the tank so I did get that out and put it on the small hole on the tank, but it didn't make any difference. I
