I am shampooing a berber carpet with my Kirby Ultimate G and no excess water or suds accumulate in tray. Either while suds dial is on or off. Why do suds come out under tray in straight line no matte


SYSTEM:
Will work with:
  • Kirby G3 vacuum cleaner
  • Kirby G4 vacuum cleaner
  • Kirby G5 vacuum cleaner
  • Kirby Gsix vacuum cleaner
  • Kirby Ultimate G vacuum cleaner
  • Kirby Ultimate G Diamond vacuum cleaner
  • Kirby Sentria vacuum cleaner
  • Sentria II (Sentria2)
This is unused shampoo attachment. We buy new parts and assemble this shampoo attachment so you will be the first one to use it.
Set includes:
  1. Tray with shield
  2. Nozzle
  3. Brush roll
  4. Belt
  5. Container with cap
  6. Hose
  7. 12 oz. shampoo
NOTE - pictured Kirby Sentria shampooer box may not be included.
If you have never used this shampoo, we highly recommend reading our ONLINE MANUAL. This is a simple but very effective unit but you have to learn how to use it and "common sense" will not be enough! HOW TO - V I D E O S

Tank with soapy solution is attached in place of the bag. It utilizes the air coming out of the exhaust to blow soapy water on a small screen that turns it into thick foam. The foam is simply laid over the carpet (you must vacuum before you shampoo). Foam allows the spread of a small amount of water over the area so carpet is not soaked all the way through. Foam is left on the carpet for a few minutes so it has just enough time to moisten the fibers of the carpet and loosen the dirt (not too long otherwise foam may dry). Then foam maker is set to "OFF" and you slowly pull Kirby vacuum over the area where you laid the foam. The rotating brush in the shampooer nozzle rubs the moisture off carpet fibers and and throws it into the tray in front of the unit. You will not see gallons of dirty water but that is because you did not put it on the rug in the first place. Carpet should dry within 1-4 hours (depends how many times you laid the foam and what is humidity in the room). After it dries it has to be vacuumed. Solution that did not get picked up with the shampooer brush dries and shampoo additives do not let the dirt stick back to the fibers of the carpet. It is loose when it dries so in order to pick up what is left, you must vacuum again.
Shampoo:
You can use any carpet shampoo sold in your local store but make sure that this is carpet shampoo that makes foam and pay attention how much you have to dilute it with water as various shampoo products come in different concentration. Avoid using "just anything" that makes foam. Some household chemicals (such as dishwasher fluid) will do great job but it will leave carpet unprotected so dirt will stick to it so well that you will have a filthy rug in no time.

Kirby creating dirt under carpet?


It is possible that the height adjustment on your Kirby is to close to the carpet,which could account for the problem you're having.The correct height adjustment for your Kirby is this-Lower the height adjustment down until you hear a change in the sound,then adjust one more click down.The Kirby is at the correct height for cleaning.If the carpet is different in another room,adjust it the same way for each carpet

Carpet shampoo system


MY FIRST QUESTION IS WHAT BRAND OF SHAMPOO ARE YOU USING??? KIRBY IS NOTED FOR REQUIRING ONLY, KIRBY SHAMPOO. PART OF THE REASON IS THAT THEY HAVE A UNIQUE FORMULA THAT WORKS SPECIFICALLY WITH THE KIRBY.
THE OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THE DISPENSER IS PLUGGED AND NEEDS A REAL GOOD CLEANING. ALSO, WHEN APPLYING THE FOAM TO THE CARPET, YOU NEED TO GO REALLY, REALLY SLOW.
THE NARROW BAND OF SUDS DOES INDICATE YOU MAY BE MOVING THE DISPENSER TOO FAST. GOOD LUCK.

It is hard to move forward when vacuuming, ok when moving back

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds like you have a Kirby vacuum and there are a few things you may want to try. #1. Change the belt on the vacuum every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning and the belt also helps you with the movement, and to store the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. #2. There is an adjustment on the brushroll on each end of the brushroll by turning the screw heads and ½ to 1/3rd turn on each side. #3. if the belt is changed and the brushroll has been adjusted then on the height adjustment, try this… raise the height adjustment to the highest level and then adjust is down one step @ a time until you hear the tone change, that is when the brush hits the carpet and the vacuum head creates a seal. Then try to vacuum the carpet – if you feel like it is doing a good job then you have got it adjusted correctly, if not adjustment one more down and the setting should be complete. If the setting is all the way down on the floor the vacuum cannot do its job properly. Also it a good idea to change the vacuum cleaner bag; and to clean the inside of the cloth bag. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Kirby Sentra vacuum burning belts
posted by campoclan on May 02, 2008
Have had Kirby vacuum for a couple of years since I've had it I burn at least two belts in two months. I keep roller clean, what is the problem?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Some of the problems that people have is that they feel they have to have the vacuum head all the way to the floor and that makes the belt work that much harder. The key to the best cleaning is to raise the height adjustment all the way to the top and once it’s there then drop it down one notch or setting @ a time until you here the tone change. Then try it to see if the vacuum if picking up well if not drop it down one more notch and that should be the setting it is supposed to be for your type of carpet. And remember to use the genuine Kirby belts instead of the Kirby replacements, they will work better. And your suggestion that to keep the brushroll clean and free spinning on each end and also keep the bottom plate clean of dirt and grease because if there is a build up it will move slower and leave black marks on the carpet. I hope this will help and if not contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Vacuum keeps burning up belts Comment by campoclan, posted on May 02, 2008
I have a Kirby Sentra and have had problems since I bought it a few years ago with burning up belts. I go through at least two a month. What is wrong with it? I keep the roller clean each time I vacuum.

Hello,

Some Kirby vacuum in the brushroll have bushings and some have bearings and the bushing bind up and do not spin properly and I suggest to replace your brushroll with a genuine Kirby belts and brushroll of which would work the best for you performance wise. A suggested belt change depending on carpet can be every 3 to 4 months or 4 to 6 months and the brushroll when needed, some carpets are ******* the belts and they do require change more frequently. The rest should be fine. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions

How to use my Kirby

How to use my Kirby carpet cleaner?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
This is kind of a general question and I will try to explain the best I can. Most Kirby’s have a vacuum head and sometimes a shampoo head, the vacuum head is removable on most Kirby’s and the vac head comes off the front for a brushroll and belt change. When you vacuum and you go to adjust the vacuum head, raise the height adjustment all the way u to the top with your foot, then listen to the tone change, @ first you will hear air pulling thru and the brush has not hit the carpet as of yet, that is the sound the you are listening for, once the brushroll hits the carpet – there is a definite tone change and that is when you have it adjusted correctly, try to vacuum with it set that way, if it is picking up well – you’re OK, if not adjust if down one more click. Also remember to do a belt change every 4 to 6 months for good cleaning, change the bag more often because it will pup better with a new belt and bag, or if you don’t have a paper bag, take and scrape the inside of the cloth bag with the scraper provided in the small zipper section. Please refer to the owner’s manual or trouble shooting guide or to your local vacuum cleaner dealer or in the yellow pages, also you can use the Kirby factory or website listed below:
