Tip

How To Attach The Carpet Shampooer To A Kirby Generation 5 (G5) Vacuum Cleaner



The Kirby carpet shampooer is an attachment that is used with the Kirby upright vacuum cleaners. It converts the Kirby from being used as a dry pickup vacuum, into a carpet shampooer and extractor. Unlike other carpet shampooers and carpet extractors, the Kirby shampoo system does not saturate the carpet with a lot of water when cleaning. Kirby shampoo systems use a special dry foam formula that gently cleans the carpet without saturation.

Installation

The link below is to an excellent, easy to follow and understand video that will explain step by step how to convert the Kirby Generation 5 (G5) from a vacuum cleaner into a carpet shampooer. Please note that the vacuum in the video is actually a newer Sentria model, however the repair procedure is identical on the G5 as it is on the Sentria.

Video Demonstration of Converting Kirby Generation 5 From Vacuum Into Carpet Shampooer:

How do I use shampooer?


Greetings,

If you click the link below it will take you to a video demonstration that explains step by step what you need to do to convert your Kirby into a carpet shampooer. The Vacuum in the video is the Kirby Sentria, but the procedure is the EXACT same as it is on your Kirby G3, as well as Kirby Diamond Edition, G4, G5, G6, etc. All Generation models have the same process of converting the vacuum into a carpet shampooer.

Kirby G3 shampooer


Hello,
The Kirby shampoer lays a layer of dry foam on the surface of the carpet and then scrubs it back off with a rotating brushroller. You can get more details of how to use one here...

Here is a step-by-step guide to help you out!!

My G series kirby carpet cleaner will not **** up the water or foam very well


The Kirby shampooer deposits the foam onto carpet,and works it into the carpet with the shampooer brushroll.After the carpet is dry,use the vacuum itself to pick up the dry foam and dirt.The Kirby Shampooer is not an extraction shampooer
