Having problems with your Kirby G6 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Can NOT get Kirby G6 shampooer system lowered to use

\015 I am trying to use my Kirby G6 shampoo system for the first time; however I've owned the Kirby couple of years. \015\012\015\012When all parts are attached, per instructions, can NOT get brushes lowered enough to shampoo carper. I raised front unit to install shampoo equipment but can not get unit lowered enough for brushes to touch carpet.\015\012\015\012Have I attached something incorrectly? Salesperson demonstrated shampooer when he sold us unit & it worked then.\015\012\015\012Looking forward to your response and thanks in advance for your assistance.\015

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

When I was putting my new rug shampooer together and the directions said to press the trigger and the clean surge button until I heard a snap, I did just that many times and never did hear a snap so I thought it had likely happened and I didn't hear it so I proceeded to fill the solution tank and get busy but no solution came out so I used the clean surge button instead and got the job done (I think). Can I continue to use it that way or is there a way I can get it to snap and use it the way it

I just used my Bissell Proheat, when I heard the vacuum sound get lower and lower then suddenly something "gave" and it got very loud and started emitting a burnt rubber smell. It still worked to put liquid into the carpet; seemed to have trouble getting it out. I checked the tank, filters, belt, and roller and all seemed OK - but when I started up again and looked down I saw sparks in the motor/belt area and shut it down immediately. Any thoughts?


The bearing that is located at the top of the vacuum motor has failed . Because of that the shaft of the motor's rotor is out of position and the pulley attached to it has started rubbing on the other pulleys, giving you that smell. the spark appear ...

It's been awhile since I have used my shampoo system on my Ultimate G series Kirby. Well, as instructed I took it apart and cleaned it. Now I can?t figure out where to put the ?screen cap? and ?sponge filter?. I have my manual in front of me and the only place it shows the filter and sponge (page 35 in the manual) is when it?s been taken apart to clean. It doesn?t show where to put it back. I don?t know what I would do without all the pictures in the Kirby manual. HELP! Thanx. Visual Kirby Vacuu

When trying to get it working, not only have I forgotten the code but I can't remember how to enter it (as in, 4 digits and a #, or just the 4 digits, or something else...?). As I am able to get into the alarm box with the key, does anyone know how to reset it and enter the code? I can't find the manual either. Thanks to anyone able to help with this!
