Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Ultimate G Shampoo System

\015 Hi there,\015\012\015\012Recently, I tried to shampoo our carpets with the system. First of all, it was making certain areas on the carpet soaking wet and others barely wet at all. The spots on the carpet did not come up at all. Does any one know why it does this? I hear this system is supposed to be one of the best but I am ready to go and rent a shampooer from the store. It's a shame I have this system but it's not doing a good job for us at all. \015\012\015\012The other thing is when I use just the vacuum alone it doesn't suck things up like they said it should. I had a bead on the floor one day and it just pushed it around. Has anyone every had that happen?\015\012\015\012Thank you in advance for your help,\015\012Tuckert\015

\015\012As for the bead, you need to lift the nozzle of the power head up and ver the bead to pick it up. The nozzle makes a great suction seal with the carpet and that's why it's pushing it. If you tried that, make sure that the green light on you nozzle is lighting up. If not, you either need to change the belt or make sure you hasve it on properly. For help with this, here's another guide...

"Attach the shampooer assembly to the Kirby in the same manner as the \015\012power nozzle. (Put the little hooks on the hood onto the outside edges \015\012of the bar in the front, push it toward the Kirby and lock it on" On my unit, the shield is in the way and totally covers the bar so that the little hooks can't access it. In order for me to use the shampooer, I need to totally remove that shield.That causes a fine mist to kick up, but it is not so much to be a major problem. With that shield attached, my unit simply cannot be used.

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
