Kirby sentria shampooing not right

\015 I have seen others use their kirby sentria shampoo system and it puts out loads of suds where as mine just puts out a little soapy water. I have the switch all the way on and the green arrows are lined up on the front. I am moving slowly while running the kirby but nothing seems to work. when i bought this thing they used it once for me and it had loads of suds but i've never been able to get it to work right. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks\015

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
