You are missing the little screen that goes on the small hole in the tank where the shampooer hose attaches to the tank. Read this shampooing instruction guide for more info....

The shampoo is dispensing too much shampoo, it is empty in no time


Hello There,
Is your machine use the water from the tank at all? If your machine use too much shampoo, my guess is it use less or no water at all. In this case the pump is sucking very little or nothing from the water tank and it does from the shampoo tank.
Please look the attached plumbing diagram. After you opened the unit up, you can follow the tubes and clean the system (solenoid valves but mostly the tubes those involved in the water tank circuit)
Good Luck with the repair!
Sorry, I wasn't able upload!

It is not dispensing the shampoo on to the carpet.


Hi,

Firstly, please ensure that there is shampoo in the tank and the tank is correctly and fully inserted. There are 2 ways to dispense shampoo on to the carpet:

1. Use the solution trigger on the underside of the handle (numbered 2 in the picture below)
2. For tough stains use the "Clean Surge" button to dispense extra shampoo (numbered 3 in the picture below

How to assembel the kirby accesories to manually shampoo


I just did and it's multiple steps but not too hard.

There are complete detailed explanations if you do a search engine on kirby shampooer instructions. I found one explanation on Ebay, and another on EHow. www.goodvac.com/Articles.asp?ID=153

Step one - vacuum your carpet more thoroughly than you usually do. Each back and forth pass - four times.

Take off the dirt bag and the head off of your Kirby.

Where the dirt bag attaches to the Kirby is where the shampoo mixing container goes. Before you attach the mixing container on there take your container and fill it to the 1st line for a very small area, 2nd for a medium sized area, and to the third line for an average sized bedroom. A large living room may need a second container. For the solution - you must use Kirby shampoo. If you fill to the first water line - use one capful, 2nd line 2 capfuls, and etc. Make sure the sponge filter is positioned on the mixing container in the spot where it hooks onto the vacuum (mini-emptor).

The shampoo brushhead I find to be the biggest challenge because that L-shaped tube attachment gets in the way of the belt lifter when you try to hook on the belt. The belt is going to hook on the brushroller the same way it does on your vacuum head. Pop the brush roller in the head of the shampooer and then sit that head onto the tray mechanism.

Once you puzzle piece everything together and now ready to shampoo. Let me tell ya this - after the hassle of putting everything together - just do the whole room and make it worth the bother.

Turn the machine on, and lower the shampoo head ALL THE WAY DOWN, unless your carpet is ultra thick and then maybe just one click up. Turn the dial on the shampoo mixing container to on. Push the machine forward rather quick and pull back slow. Do overlapping passes.This will spread the foam nice and evenly. Let the foam sit for about 5 minutes, then turn the dial to off and go back over it slowly forward and backwards massaging the foam solution deep into your carpet fibers. Then let it sit for 2 - 3 hours. Then vacuum really thoroughly. Right after I go through the shampooing process and the carpet is still moist - I use a carpet brush and I scrub the foam even deeper into the carpet.

Good luck. Hopefully you will be motivated in the fact that I just did mine and the high traffic carpet looks really good. I just had clients come in and they noticed the difference right away, as it looks like a pro came in and did the job.

Kirby Shampoo system not dispensing foam


Few possible causes

1. Valve under the sponge (water tank) is clogged. Replacement HERE.
2. Tray is now lowered all the way down.
3. You use non-foamy solution.
4. Carpet is very dirty so foam gets broken up very fast

Hope this helps,
Rocky

How to shampoo stairs


HERE is the manual
When rating my solution rate the clarity of the explanation NOT whatever you like Kirby stair shampoo system. I do not believe this is the way to shampoo either but this is not me who designed it. Will get the job done but it is a lot of scrubbing and rubbing.

Good Luck
