    My kirby shampooer is letting all the cleaner out, weting the carpet instead of suds. I use the kirby shampoo in the blue bottle. Please assist me with this problem.

    My Kirby is putting the suds out but not picking up the water/suds. The screen is there the roller is spinning. The green light that normally comes on when vacuuming does not come on. What does this mean? HELP

If your shampoooer is laying out WET foam in the center of the tray and not all the way across, you are missing the wee round suds screen that goes over the hole where the hose attaches to the tank. It may be wedged in your hose. If the foam is white, bubbly and stretches from one edge of the tray to the other, you may not have the belt connected to make the brush spin, or you may not have the height adjustment on it's lowest setting.

My Kirby shampooer wont foam

Start with the hose OFF the tank (make sure small filter is in place).Fill the tank with water and KIRBY DRY SHAMPOO (other shampoo's wont foam) then turn the vacuum on. At this time the shampoo will come out as a stream of foam. If the shampoo come's out as liquid then you will need to check the tank. If shampoo was left in the tank ,then the pick-up hose inside the tank my be colgged. These are hard to un-clogg so replacement of the tank may be needed.

I cant figure out how to **** up water with my kirby dimond

Vacuuming a wet carpet with your Kirby or any other vacuum not designed for wet pickup could do serious damage to your machine and there is a real danger of electrical shock to the operator.
Your Kirby Diamond and every other Kirby for that matter is NOT designed to pick up water!! Even with the shampoo system attached it will NOT pick up water or the shampoo foam. Your Kirby spreads the shampoo foam around on the carpet to clean it. You then only vacuum a shampooed carpet after it has completely dried.

Is every Kirby Vacuum capable of being a carpet shampoor?

No. You need the shampooing attachment that fits on select models.

My G series kirby carpet cleaner will not **** up the water or foam very well

The Kirby shampooer deposits the foam onto carpet,and works it into the carpet with the shampooer brushroll.After the carpet is dry,use the vacuum itself to pick up the dry foam and dirt.The Kirby Shampooer is not an extraction shampooer
