It fell and now won't start

I was carrying it down the stairs, and I slipped and fell with it. It bumped once. Now it won't start...all the pieces are in place, cord return works. Nothing when I press the power button.

Internal (concealed) damage, probably wiring or switch. may be something serious, can't tell until stripped down and follow wirng circuits from cord to motor. If the power head works then the switch and wiring is likely o.k. Need to remove cover, screws (some may be under control) and seperate halves of vac to trace wires or replace parts.

Cord holder fell off of vacuum


the cap on cord holder should pop off allowing access to mounting screw. If all else fails home depot carries plastic epoxy that will weld piece back in. follow instructions on epoxy and wear latex gloves.

Shampoo stairs


There is a portable shampooer/sprayer that attaches to the hose ( the long one that makes the kirby a canister vacuum). It should have come with your attachments. Looks a bit like a gun without the tank attached to the bottom...the tank screws on.

To use it you would put the fingerguard attachment on the front of the kirby where the powerhead would normally go and the hose with the portable shampooer where the bag would go.

The tank on the portable sprayer/shampooer has lines to indicate how much water and shampoo are needed.

Be sure to put the mesh nozzle (sort of a triangular shaped thing with a piece of mesh along the front that attaches to the front of the portable sprayer) on the front of the portable sprayer if you want to shampoo..otherwise it will just spray a mist. The triangular piece with the mesh screen is what produces suds.

Vacuum the furniture/stairs thoroughly before shampooing. Cover the stairs/furniture with a thick coat of suds. Once covered with suds, pop the suds into the fabric/carpet using your hands...working the bubbles into any heavily soiled areas with a soft brush. No need to vacuum after shampooing. There is only about 10 percent water to 90 percent air in the suds.

Then let it dry. 15 minutes to and hour depending on the amount of solution used. Hope this helps!!!
