Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
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!!
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.
