    You either not installing it properly (not engaging the belt so nothing holds the tray within the nozzle) Or tray hooks that hook onto the bar in front of the unit are broken.

Power wont stay on


It sounds Kirby has a new model with a new type of switch go back to the shop you bought it , if you have not read the manual , a tip , 1 look how the dustbag is connected it must be good connected if not the problem is there , second the hose the hose must be connected good because if not the problem is there more options are not there for the master switch . if its controlled that the switches are god pushed in by mechanic parts of the dustbag connector or hose connector , it must run and stay on power the dustbag is the one that is the most probable connection what maybe not enough is turned to the motor housing have a stabil working on -off switch. if it not does made difference go immediatly back to the shop. with proof of purchase, you get an other new one if its a factory failure. or the powercable was accidentially bruised between a door or linger behind the powerplug and that why its faltering maybe.

My Kirby shampooer - G4 - hardly used any water from the tank and no suds at all. Pet hair did blow out of the small slotted holes in the tray as I moved the shampooer back and forth, but the carpet was...


Few things:
Make sure the sponge and the valve under the sponge (water tank) is clean.
Make sure you follow the instructions (f you do not have the manual you can find one HERE)
See if the straw inside the water tank is not clogged (happens when you use toilet tissue or some other paper to dry inside of the tank after you shampoo)

Noise - if it is noisy al the time - it may need new shampooer brush roll. Also check the tray - bar brush roll bearings overheat and melt the tray... Never submerse brush roll in water when cleaning it. Clean it simply by lifting the shampooer nozzle and letting it spin for 10-20 seconds. If you have tu put it under running water - put it back in the shampooer nozzle (with tray and shield) put on Kirby and turn it on for 20 seconds or so. If it stays soaken wet - moisture damages barings.

Good luck

Wont come on or stay on


Check the motor brushes, may not always be making contact against the armature. Also there is a safety switch where the bag contacts when it is locked into position, sometimes they get clogged up with dirt, etc. While you have the bag off, pull the cord out of the socket and look at the 2 contacts and the plastic around them to make sure it looks ok.

Make sure that the brushes on the shampooer tray are spinning, that the belt is resting on the driveshaft. The suction alone will pull up some of the moisture but the brushes should be spinning to gently scrub the carpet and deposit any excess moisture into the tray.

Your shampooer is not broken. (sorry Fanny)

You are missing a wee screen that fits on the hole where the little hose plugs into the tank. Check inside the hose end or down inside your shampooer box. Here's a link to my online Kirby shampooer instructions...

I want to brush the pile up on my carpet do I need a special attachment to do this??. I have shampood it and it still seems a bit flat. When I shampood no water/foam filled up in the front tray???I am sure...


There are different attachments for different models. If there is no foam in the tray, check that you have connected all the attachments correctly. If you are not sure which way they go, remember, there is only one right way to do it, so try untill you get it right.

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.
