Very low suction when I use the hose, but the carpet brush roller attachment works fine. Any ideas?


This style of vacuum has great airflow but does not have great suction, especially at the end of the hose but it still should have enough to pick up most soils. It may have a restriction in the suction tube or emptor. The disposable bag may be full or clogged, the outer bag could also be clogged.

I am shampooing a berber carpet with my Kirby Ultimate G and no excess water or suds accumulate in tray. Either while suds dial is on or off. Why do suds come out under tray in straight line no matte


SYSTEM:
Will work with:
  • Kirby G3 vacuum cleaner
  • Kirby G4 vacuum cleaner
  • Kirby G5 vacuum cleaner
  • Kirby Gsix vacuum cleaner
  • Kirby Ultimate G vacuum cleaner
  • Kirby Ultimate G Diamond vacuum cleaner
  • Kirby Sentria vacuum cleaner
  • Sentria II (Sentria2)
This is unused shampoo attachment. We buy new parts and assemble this shampoo attachment so you will be the first one to use it.
Set includes:
  1. Tray with shield
  2. Nozzle
  3. Brush roll
  4. Belt
  5. Container with cap
  6. Hose
  7. 12 oz. shampoo
NOTE - pictured Kirby Sentria shampooer box may not be included.
If you have never used this shampoo, we highly recommend reading our ONLINE MANUAL. This is a simple but very effective unit but you have to learn how to use it and "common sense" will not be enough! HOW TO - V I D E O S

Tank with soapy solution is attached in place of the bag. It utilizes the air coming out of the exhaust to blow soapy water on a small screen that turns it into thick foam. The foam is simply laid over the carpet (you must vacuum before you shampoo). Foam allows the spread of a small amount of water over the area so carpet is not soaked all the way through. Foam is left on the carpet for a few minutes so it has just enough time to moisten the fibers of the carpet and loosen the dirt (not too long otherwise foam may dry). Then foam maker is set to "OFF" and you slowly pull Kirby vacuum over the area where you laid the foam. The rotating brush in the shampooer nozzle rubs the moisture off carpet fibers and and throws it into the tray in front of the unit. You will not see gallons of dirty water but that is because you did not put it on the rug in the first place. Carpet should dry within 1-4 hours (depends how many times you laid the foam and what is humidity in the room). After it dries it has to be vacuumed. Solution that did not get picked up with the shampooer brush dries and shampoo additives do not let the dirt stick back to the fibers of the carpet. It is loose when it dries so in order to pick up what is left, you must vacuum again.
Shampoo:
You can use any carpet shampoo sold in your local store but make sure that this is carpet shampoo that makes foam and pay attention how much you have to dilute it with water as various shampoo products come in different concentration. Avoid using "just anything" that makes foam. Some household chemicals (such as dishwasher fluid) will do great job but it will leave carpet unprotected so dirt will stick to it so well that you will have a filthy rug in no time.

Our Gen3 Kirby still works but is extremely loud not - I am currently only using with the wood floor attachment (no brush) - thoughts?


this could be the impeller fan next to the motor shaft under your attachment hose connection.

to determine this, remove the hose from the unit, and turn the fan shaft with your hand looking down inside the unit. You should see blades on the impeller fan, and they should all look squared off and curved. If any of them are broken or worn, it will make the unit louder than normal.

Also, the hose attchment has an increased noise more than using the brush attchment anyway because it increases the suction for the hose more than on the carpet. IE the motor runs faster giving you more suction.

An Impeller fan for the G3 Kirby will run about 18-39$ for the fan. More for labour.

Good luck,
Mark

Need Kirby Generation 3 Vacuum cleaner manual. Vacuum is not picking up dirt from floor. Seems to have enough suction to inflate the bag, but when you check the suction under the vacuum, there seems to...


If your brush roll is turning and your bag is not overly full, then the only other thing it can be is a clog where the bag connects to the vacuum. Turn the plastic part out away from vacuum and lift off to see if you have something clogging it. It would have to be something big, but not so big that it could not get past the fan. As a rule of thumb, KIRBY never clogs. I suspect that your belt is stretched out and your brush roll is not turning while on the carpet so the brush roll is just in the way rather than brushing your carpet to pick up dirt.

Not picking up dirt. hardly no suction


if your model has a hose for a wand or brush attachment then remove the hose and check it for clogs.

Where do I connect the hose and it's attachments


You need the suction/blower connector on the hose:

This must be for G4 or G3 model as later models had this part a bit different.

For rest of the attachment go HERE.
I can sell you used FULL G4 attachment set for 99.00

Suction loss when handle is tipped back to clean carpet


can any one help,
Our Dyson Animal vacuum has plenty of suction when it is upright and the attachments are being used off the hose, but when the handle is tipped back to begin cleaning carpets the beater head is getting no suction. As the handle is being tipped back you can hear what sounds like a flapper valve in the body of the vacuum opening and then all the suction just goes away.

Kirby G4 without suction


change your belt, if there is suction from the hose, and you cant see any blockages in the area where the brush roll is then you need to change the belt, even if it isnt broken. putting your hand over the nozzle to feel the suction is not the way to tell if it has suction.

Kirby Ultimate won't clean carpet


when you install the hose connector it trips a switch that switches the vac motor into high speed because the vac path is longer using the hose. check the belt after you remove the front. make sure the direction of rotation is in the direction of belt travel stamped in the impeller. try adjusting the head height
