Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Shampooing with the kirby

\015 I'm actually trying to shampoo right this minute, but the suds are not even close to what the demonstration did. I'm adding 3 cups of the liquid to the full jar.....what am I doing wrong. I turn the knob to on.\015

Answers :

Hello,
\015\012There is a small (approx. 1" in diameter) screen that MUST be fitted onto the hole in the tank that the shampooer hose plugs into. If this screen is not there, the shampooer will not make bubbles. (This is the usual culprit) It can get lodged in the shampooer hose or may be lying loose in the shampooer box. Make sure that the "cup" that you are using to measure is the SHAMPOOER TANK CAP/LID , not the shampoo bottle cap or a measuring cup. Try my online guide to Kirby shampooing..

In the cap where you fill the shampoo, make sure the filter and components are clean

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

... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

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
