SOURCE: kirby diamond edition - shampooer

1. Raise the vacuum head all of the way up. 2. Remove the vacuum head by removing the belt and releasing it. 3. Place the shampooer head on the vacuum by securing the clamp and them put the belt on 4. Take the bag off of the vacuum by twisting at the base just slightly outward and lifting upwards and unclamp it from the handle 5. Put water and cleaner into the water resevoir. 6. Put the reservoir on to the kirby where the bag was by holding it parallel to the vacuum then using both hands, twist it outward slowly until it goes down onto the unit then twist back to parallel position. 7. Put the coil looking piece on the shampooer head on top where the hole is...it will only fit one way successfully. 8. Put the other end on the under side of the water reservoir. 9. Lower the shampooer head all of the way down on the carpet just like you would the vacuum head 10. Turn on the vacuum and reach down and turn the knob at the top of the reservoir, this will begin putting cleaner (tons of foam) onto the carpet. Just work in 3' x 3' sections, turning off the foam intermitently until you are finished. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: How do I change the belt on my Kirby G 2000

Lift the head two pedal clicks off the carpet.
Lift the headlight and you will find a silver thumb dial to remove the carpet head. At the front of the head there is a square dial which you must rotate to release the belt if not broken. Rotate the square dial , then release the silver thumb dial under the light housing and the head will detach.
Flip it upside down to expose the brush and open the grate covering the brush. Note on either end there are colored leveling blocks for the brush. Reinstall with same colors showing.
Clean any hair and thread from the brush roll and insert new genuine belt. reinstall in opposite order, Be sure to turn the square dial backward to align the belt in a twist pattern before reinstalling the head onto the vac.Then lower onto carpet with pedal.

I have torn my file cabinet apart, and cannot locate my manual for my Kirby 2001 Limited Edition. I am trying to replace the belt, and need the manual in order to do so.


Kirby models are all very similar. The only manual I've been able to locate is for the G6. You can download or print it from the below link.

Or check the belt change video at the following site. I recommend making this site a favorite for easy access to these videos.

My kirby shampooer doesnt seem to be placing foam on the floor like it should and it's not picking up any at all


Mine did that once and we were missing the filter part on the end of the shampoo hose attachment.fits on the end of the hose. Bought a new one at the Kirby store for cheap. It looks like a filter screen and without it just seems to soak the carpet without foaming up or cleaning it very well.

Unclogging drains?


Hi!
You need to take the power nozzle off and attach the thing that looks like a little plastic cup with two hooks on it. This is the intake guard. Attach it to the front. Now remove the cloth bag and put the hose on the hole where the bag was. You'll have to line the arrow on the hose up with the notch on the Kirby and push the hose arm toward the Kirby until it pops on. If you need to, lube up the edges of the hole with a wee bit of vaseline or hand lotion. This makes the hose engage easier. Now, turn your massage cup (in your basic set of attachments inside out and hold it on the drain hole. If there is an overflow hole in the sink, you may want to cover it so that you won't be splattered with gunk. lol Now, turn the Kirby on and it will attempt to blow the clog on through the pipe. Sometimes it works...sometimes it doesn't. :0) Hope this helps...

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Kirby Ultimate Diamond Edition
You can cal the Kirby factory to request a new owner’s manual and they will describe how to use the vacuum on hardwood floors. There is a felt piece as wide as the brushroll area that will clip on to the bottom of the revolving brush area so that you hard wood floors don’t get scratched. The Kirby head will dial off and the Kirby head will come off and the attachment hose will connect to the front of the Kirby and that is how you use the attachments. Also contact your local Kirby vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
