Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Shampooer leaves spots

\015 When I shampoo with the Ultimate G I get some water that somehow leaks underneath the machine, touches the metal and leaves black marks in the carpet. I don't know how to stop the water from leaking underneath, leaving the carpet worse off than when I start.\015

Answers :

If the spots are NOT at the center of the unit - you may have washed the brush roll. Older style shampooer brush rolls could retain a lot of water and it is all dirty in there. NEVER wash the brush. Just after you are done - raise the nozzle and let it spin freely for 10-15 seconds. It will be clean most of the time.

If you already did or if you will absolutely have to do it in the future - do not soak it. Set it vertically somewhere so water could drain and leave it to dry.

Do not make sudden moves while shampooing so the water does not spill from the tray.

If you oiled Kirby some time or sprayed WD40 somewhere - maybe it is coming out now (do not oil Kirby - it does not need that type of maintenance)

Hope this helps

It leaves dirt and fluff in the rollers not in the filter. So is not cleaning properly. There is never anf fluff at all in the filter. Also the lid does not close properly and we constantly get the 'check tank' light coming on. It leaves streaky marks across the floor and seems to leave the floor too wet (hence the streaks).
