Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

I can not get the Kirby vacuum to **** up the foam after I lay it

\015 I have borrowed a Kirby from a friend who has no idea how to run it herself. Well, I looked up the instructions online and got it put together and got it to lay out the foam alright. ( Except for the fact that it took a lot for a small area ) Now, I can not seem to get the shampoo to **** back up into the tray. I have turned the nob on top of the shampoo tank to off and still nothing. I have lowered the setting all the way down and still nothing!! Does anyone know what I am doing wrong??? Please help me!!\015

Answers :

Few things to watch for.
1. Do not leave the foam on the rug for too long (2-5 minutes max) - long enough for rug to absorb it. This is why I would recommend doing carpet in sections.
2. If the carpet is really dirty or/and old - sometimes dirt breaks down the foam so fast that you will not get much (if anything) from the carpet. New carpets are treated with dirt repellents so fiber does not absorb the water and dirt does not stick to carpet easily. On old carpets this treatment is worn off so fibers absorb moisture very easily and there is not much you can do. You may wash it to get it as clean as you can, let it dry, vacuum and then use KirbyGuard to restore protection, but you decide if it is worth the effort considering that some stains will never come out.

Good Luck

I have a Kirby vacuum with the shampooing attachment. The shampoo/liquid comes out of the shampooer in a drizzle of liquid. There is no foam.


You need to check that the little round screen is in the hole where the hose attaches to the shampoo tank. My guess is that the little round screen is wedged sideways in the end of the hose.\015\012 \015\012Here is a guide to help you further...\015\ ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

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
