Why is my carpeting getting fuzzy tips?


You might be vacuuming too much or you may have the wrong brush strips for your style of carpeting. I recommend you take a sample of your carpet to your Riccar dealer and ask them if you have the correct vacuum and brush strips for your type of carpet.

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.

It won't vacuum up the solution from the carpet


Check the filter located on the top of the water holding tank. It's red and if it's clogged it wont allow the vaccum to **** water. Good luck

That means that the belt2_bing.gif is starting to wear. When the belt starts to stretch it can't turn the roller brush against the resistance of the carpet and therefore doesn't pick up well. You simply need to change the belt. Here is a link to the belt you need and to the manual:

About kirby carpet extracters


The heritage 2 pulls 5.5 amps or 660 watts in hose mode and 4.5 amps or 540 watts in carpet mode.

Volts to Watts

The conversion of Volts to Watts is governed by the equation Watts = Amps x Volts

Plugged hose on Hoover Windtunnel


you will have to remove the bottom cowling under the vaccum cleaner there are 4 phillips head screws one at each corner when you turn over the vaccum cleaner, take this off and remember how it goes back on. in the area where the hos is there will probably be a clog at that point. remove this and pull hose off and make sure it is not clogged farther up the hose, reinstall and check
