Don't have all of the info, maybe going to http://vacuumsuperstore.com/KirbyHome.html, they can get you a user manual. But in the meantime, turn the big knob on the front of the nozzle all the way until it locks in place, then remove the front nozzle, put on the nozzle for the shampooer, and turn the knob to set the belt to the pulley. Here is a picture of the parts breakdown for it, maybe it will help.

Why is there no steam coming out of the nozzle?


Lois, is this a carpet cleaner or vacuum? If a carpet cleaner I have found that the hoses that deliver the solution to the carpet will become plugged at the nozzle. These can usually be cleaned with warm water. I would have to have more info as to make and type of unit to answer more. Viking.

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.

What is the best way to clean a carpet?


Vacuum the carpet. Dampen a cloth with the cleaner or stain remover you want to use. Lay the cloth on the carpet for an hour, and then blot the damp area with a dry white cloth. If the cloth is stained with carpet dyes, test another cleaning product until you find one that does not make the carpet sample bleed.

Don't have a manual on how to convert the vacuum to the Carpet Cleaning System for the Kirby Ultimate G Diamond Edition.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best lace to get the owner’s manual for the Carpet Cleaning System for the Kirby Ultimate G Diamond Edition is to contact the Kirby factory cust serv dept and give them the model # and serial # is needed and they should be able to send out an owner’s manual for you as per the conversion t the carpet cleaning system. The phone # and the website address for further assistance. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
