Hi!
You need to take the power nozzle off and attach the thing that looks like a little plastic "cup" with two hooks and a screen 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 the hose isn't all the way on, the vacuum will not run) 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. If this didn't help, I have mnauals available.

Changed hose on carpet cleaner and it wont pick up the water


If you are unable to pick up water from the carpet after using the hose attachment, is is usually due to one of two reasons.
1 - The duct on the front of the dirty water tank has not been put back in place after using the hose. It is a square plastic piece about the size of a slice of sandwich bread.
2 - The lid is not properly seated on the tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front edge in place before hooking the latch at the rear. This also applies when using the hose.

How do i hook up the upholstery cleaner attachment up and use it?


First the bag assembly and head (or hose) must be removed. The hose fits onto the motor outlet in place of the bag. You will see a small arrow on the motor end of the hose. Line the arrow up with the "bump" on the metal fan housing and turn it clockwise to snap it in place. Be sure it is fully in place, or the motor will not run. Your attachment box contains an air intake guard which goes on the front in place of the head. Remember - the motor also will not run with the fan exposed. Turn the motor on and blow any dust out of the hose before putting the spray gun on the end of the hose. To make foam, the small foam screen must be attached to the spray gun outlet.

How do you attach the upholstry attachment to your hoover steamvac


The hose hooks into the dirt bucket on the front where a clear plastic block sets. Put the hose in that slot and then hook the tube for the water at the top of the hood.

How do you apply attatchment for upholstery cleaner


If can only go on one way so it will lock. If it doesn't, then something is broken either the attachment or the hose end where it hooks to.

Furniture cleaning isn't a science: try out a few techniques before choosing the one that is right for your belongings. This step-by-step guide explains how to clean a sofa:
  1. Before using any upholstery cleaning products, vacuum the sofa or chair first to remove as much surface dirt and dust as possible. Be sure to use the correct attachments to avoid damage to the material - a soft brush attachment is ideal.
  1. Spot Clean. Using baby wipes or vinegar poured onto a strong microfiber cloth, apply to any obvious stains, wiping gently as you go. Remember to test the upholstery cleaning products on an inconspicuous area first.
  1. Overall Clean. Using soapy water and a microfibre cloth, gently wipe your sofa with the solution, allowing it to soak into the fabric and tackle the dirt beneath the surface. You only want to use a very small amount of water - don't saturate the material.
  1. Dry. Some people use a hairdryer to quickly dry a sofa, but allowing it to dry naturally is always the better option, if you have the time. To speed things up, open windows and allow the breeze to help with the drying process.
