Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a Kirby Ultimate G that is not properly dispensing the Kirby carpet shampoo. It comes out in only 2"-3" strips. I thought the problem was the little mesh filter - it just sits loosely in there and tends to fall out into the connector tube - but I secured it with plumbing tape and the problem still occurs. I have also checked the sponge filter and it is fine.
Please help - I am ready to take this thing to the pawn shop, since I bought it mostly for the shampooer!
Oh, and I have read the other responses to similar problems, so no need to post links to manuals or to Kirby customer support. I'm looking for direct solutions, please.
I had the same problem and I called my local Kirby guy, he's great, helped me when I thought I blew my kirby up, it was just a cord and he wa able to tell me that over the phone. When I called him with this problem, he knew right away that it was only putting out a thin strip in the middle only. The first thing was I needed that little screen, the second was the hole where the screen goes has a white tube that goes from that hole to the bottom of the tank, its kinda in the corner and I never thought it would have anything to do with the problem. He said I needed to run hot water in it and clean it cuz I was going to have to blow in it, yes, with my mouth. I ran it under hot water for a few minutes and then with hot water in the hole, blew into it. I did this a few times, checking the tube ending each time. After a few times, water was shooting freely through the tube. Problem solved, I think, I'll be shampooing tonight so i'll know for sure then. An alternative to blowing with your mouth would be using a can of air, didnt think of it till now and I have 1!

NOT ENOUGH SOAP!! I had the same problem just yesterday. I checked everything and found out that I did not have enough of the solution in the tank. If you don't have enough solution then you don't see the suds and that is why the water level goes down in the tank despite no suds! Hope this helps. Remember you should put 3 cap fulls of solution into the tank and fill it with luke warm water to the line.
