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

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

Kirby Sentra Shampoo tank empties too fast


You can control how much foam the unit dispenses with the dial on the tank.

Carpet shampoo system


MY FIRST QUESTION IS WHAT BRAND OF SHAMPOO ARE YOU USING??? KIRBY IS NOTED FOR REQUIRING ONLY, KIRBY SHAMPOO. PART OF THE REASON IS THAT THEY HAVE A UNIQUE FORMULA THAT WORKS SPECIFICALLY WITH THE KIRBY.
THE OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THE DISPENSER IS PLUGGED AND NEEDS A REAL GOOD CLEANING. ALSO, WHEN APPLYING THE FOAM TO THE CARPET, YOU NEED TO GO REALLY, REALLY SLOW.
THE NARROW BAND OF SUDS DOES INDICATE YOU MAY BE MOVING THE DISPENSER TOO FAST. GOOD LUCK.

Flow Indicator Not Moving, Not Dispensing Anything


The water tank and the solution tank both have red gaskets that attach to the bottoms of the tanks. Make sure they are on properly, I just had the same problem and spent hours taking apart the machine and inspecting lines to find out it was a gasket.

On my machine the red gasket for the solution got stuck in the chasis for the machine. The bissel website alludes to this, but isn't very clear.

Other posters talk about the heaters, or the lines being clogged and I immediatley inspected these areas, turns out it was a gasket that was hiding in the chasis. Both the water tank and the solution tank should have one, and make sure they don't get nestled in the chasis!

Soap dispenser


Probably plugged with soap. Try to clean the hole under the shampoo dispenser. Put plain water in the dispenser and hope it gradually cleans it out.
