Need help with upholstery shampooing

Hi I know how to use the carpet shampooer, but I can't seem to work out how to use the upholstery attatchments. Are you able to point me in the right direction for a manual, or just let me know what goes where??? Cheers Vicky

    Thanks Noggin.
    My parents are actually in America for another three weeks, but they are really difficult to get hold of. I might send them an email anyway to see if they can get hold of one for me. Cheers for that lead.
    I am in South West Western Australia. If you can find a nearby dealer for me, that would be wonderful.
    Cheers

Unfortunately Kirby don't seem to support their Australian customers at all, sorry. (best they offered was a phone number of a dealer in Capetown) If you have a friend in the US who could send it on to you then you could get a manual here; http://www.gottahavebags.com/Kirby/kirby_manual.html Unfortunately they wont ship direct to Oz. Same deal here, if you have a contact in the UK; http://www.kevco-europe.com/acatalog/kirby_instruction_manuals_europe.html They even offer the video as well, If you can post back with your general area, I could find you a nearby dealer that sells the ultimate G where you might be able to get some help. Hope this can help you out, if not please post back with your location :)

    other than that there seems to be a real shortage of vacuum cleaner people in your area - (I'm almost thinking about moving there and setting up a business!)

    good luck

How To Attach The Carpet Shampooer To A Kirby Generation 5 (G5) Vacuum Cleaner



The Kirby carpet shampooer is an attachment that is used with the Kirby upright vacuum cleaners. It converts the Kirby from being used as a dry pickup vacuum, into a carpet shampooer and extractor. Unlike other carpet shampooers and carpet extractors, the Kirby shampoo system does not saturate the carpet with a lot of water when cleaning. Kirby shampoo systems use a special dry foam formula that gently cleans the carpet without saturation.

Installation

The link below is to an excellent, easy to follow and understand video that will explain step by step how to convert the Kirby Generation 5 (G5) from a vacuum cleaner into a carpet shampooer. Please note that the vacuum in the video is actually a newer Sentria model, however the repair procedure is identical on the G5 as it is on the Sentria.

The brush won't spin on my hoover shampooer


This machine has an airdriven turbine that drives the brushes. The turbine needs to be replace because it is spinning on a steel bushing which gets rusty from all the water going through it.

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. Here is a guide to help you further... http://reviews.ebay.com/KIRBY-CARPET-SHAMPOOER-INSTRUCTIONS-MANUAL-DIRECTIONS_W0QQugidZ10000000004594992
