Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Shampooer not putting out suds

\015 What is the sponge filter you are talking about that needs cleaning?\015

Answers :

There is a sponge right underneath the on/off knob on the shampooer tank. There is a small suds screen right beside it on the small hole that the hose fits onto. Both these things should be cleaned regularly. Here is a pic of the tank..the little black suds screen is visible to the upper right of the pic. The sponge is right behind the suds screen in the pic, so you can't see it very well. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310045439771&ih=021&category=42146&rd=1&ssPageName=mem_guide:1

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

Shampoo-er This seems to be a common problem, the shampooer is putting out alot of water and hardly any suds. I read through the posts about the little filter that sometimes gets out of place and I think I found it in the box - is it about 1" diameter hard plastic ring around very fine mesh? If so where exactly does it go? Some posts say in the hose, and others say in the opening of the tank. Or does it go in the place where the hose attaches to the tray? I also found a round sponge in the box o

Bissell Powerease Lighweight Deep Cleaner. (Shampooer) After I fill the solution tank with the solution and water, I put it in it's slot, but all of the contents just come flowing out. I have only used this machine twice and it worked ok. You are supposed to press the trigger and the solution sprays out and then release the trigger when you want it to stop. But like I said, now I just put the tank on and all the contents come flowing out. I don't know what's wrong or how to stop it.
