Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
Hello, my kirby shampooer used to work fine, now it does not. i too have had the problem of the suds screen coming loose and lodging in the hose. i took care of that with some glue. for a while, it worked OK. Now when i start to shampoo, for the first few minutes, it works fine and suds are the full width of the tray. after that, it goes into a little line about 4 inches wide unless i pull back super slowly. even then sometimes it will put out very little suds or none at all. what else can cause that? the switch fully opens in the ON position, the sud screen is present and not clogged, the hose is not clogged, everything is clean and assembled properly, and i use the correct amount of kirby shampoo. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
I have had this issue numerous times. My husband fnally came up with the perfect solution. He wrapped teflon tape (PTFE tape) around the dumb screen and voila. No more screen coming loose. Mine has always been VERY loose. Infact it would simply fall down within minutes of it being inserted, before even turning on the device. poor workmanship, but niw it works great.

Instead of glue I used a rubber band to help provide an air free grip to keep it in place. Just a thin tiny rubber band around the cap then insert and it should stay snug. Mine hasn't fallen out since but if I ever needed to clean it or clear debrie I could take it out still.

I have a feeling that since the little screen is glued in, it may have gottten gunked up a bit with shampoo residue. Since it is glued in, you may need to purchase a new tank.

According to the manual.
Remove and clean the Suds screen Cap, Cup and sponge filter.
Thats all it says.
