This is from an Amazon review. I have misplaced my manual and was searching for a pdf file without any luck. I think I have it under control if I only knew where to put my distilled water.Basic operation of the WhiteWing is:
1. Fill the tank with distilled water 2. Attach the hose to the steamer. 3. Attach the extension handles and attachment you want.(Be sure to watch the video and read the instruction booklet. Some of the attachments have specific uses and setup instructions) 4. Lock the finger trigger. 5. Plug it in. 6. Turn it on. 7. Wait 20 min. or until the pressure gauge reads between 3.5-4.5. 8. Get ready to rock - press the steam release button, unlock the finger trigger and start steaming.
For many jobs such as countertops, shower stalls, stovetops, you will need to follow behind the steam, wiping with a cloth to remove the released dirt from the surface. Some jobs may require you to start with a non-toxic cleaner or grease remover such as Orange Clean or Method brand cleaners. Remember, you'll be breathing in vaporized cleaner. So be sure it's something non-toxic and non-irritating. I prefer the Method brand cleaners.
UN PLUG THE MACHINE before attempting this. There is a safety switch that prevents you from getting hurt but please just to be safe un plug the machine.
The hose attaches to the front of the machine. You will need to take off the brushroll nozzle first to do this.
Lift the front lid with the light on it. Pull the plastic lever from the front turn knob. Twist the plastic knob until the red markings line up. Turn the metal latch at the top of the nozzle. Pull off nozzle.
Take hose and attach it to where the nozzle was. The little plastic curved hooks on the hose attach to the metal rod. Once you have the hose on turn the metal latch to hold the hose onto the machine the same way the nozzle was held on.
It sounds to me like you have the water hose plugged in, but not the hose block. In the front of the dirty water return tank there should be a removable square plastic piece. Remove the lid and slide that piece out. Replace wth the back end of the hose receptacle. If you have already done this, then here is your problem: when you return the lid to the top of the return tank, you must roll it on from the front(there are brackets the lid hooks under) to the back and listen or feel or the "click" your tank is now ready to pick up the dirty water from your hose. let me know if this helps!
Front of the unit, black switch that is pressed by this plastic protrusion from hose coupling has two parts. It is because ANY generation Kirby has speeds - HIGH for vacuuming with hose and LOW for using it with nozzle. Looks like the switch went bad (Switch HERE)
We have instructions for replacing it too. The "funny noise" with hose throws me off a bit though. Check if there is nothing in the hose (put a nickle through it).
Easliy download the manual at Hoover.com.
The hose attached in the front of the unit on the clear front panel. Lift up the center cap and attached the hose. Then attache the supply hose to the side of steam vac for your solution.
Do you need a new powerhead too or only the hose? If you need a new powerhead than I would recommend looking at the Imperium Pro Elite Attachment set. It is an excellent quality powerhead and hose. If you only need a new hose than you will need to contact the Aerus because they will be probably be the only company who can sell you a hose that wil be compatible with your powerhead. Their website is http://www.aerusonline.com/products/
Hi! You need to take the power nozzle off and attach the thing that looks like a little plastic cup with two hooks on it. This is the intake guard. Attach it to the front. Now remove the cloth bag and put the hose on the hole where the bag was. You'll have to line the arrow on the hose up with the notch on the Kirby and push the hose arm toward the Kirby until it pops on. If you need to, lube up the edges of the hole with a wee bit of vaseline or hand lotion. This makes the hose engage easier.
Since you lost your manual, you may want another. They are available in DVD, VHS or book format. Check it out!
you will see a tube coming out of the top of the base.thats where the hose attaches.but before you putthe hose on turn on the vacuum and see if you have suction at the tube coming out of the top of the base.also check and see if the brush roller is turning when vacuum is on.there is a little door you have to lift up when you attach the hose.hold the door open and attach the hose.i hope i was of some help to you.please leave feedback
