How to assembel the kirby accesories to manually shampoo


I just did and it's multiple steps but not too hard.

There are complete detailed explanations if you do a search engine on kirby shampooer instructions. I found one explanation on Ebay, and another on EHow. www.goodvac.com/Articles.asp?ID=153

Step one - vacuum your carpet more thoroughly than you usually do. Each back and forth pass - four times.

Take off the dirt bag and the head off of your Kirby.

Where the dirt bag attaches to the Kirby is where the shampoo mixing container goes. Before you attach the mixing container on there take your container and fill it to the 1st line for a very small area, 2nd for a medium sized area, and to the third line for an average sized bedroom. A large living room may need a second container. For the solution - you must use Kirby shampoo. If you fill to the first water line - use one capful, 2nd line 2 capfuls, and etc. Make sure the sponge filter is positioned on the mixing container in the spot where it hooks onto the vacuum (mini-emptor).

The shampoo brushhead I find to be the biggest challenge because that L-shaped tube attachment gets in the way of the belt lifter when you try to hook on the belt. The belt is going to hook on the brushroller the same way it does on your vacuum head. Pop the brush roller in the head of the shampooer and then sit that head onto the tray mechanism.

Once you puzzle piece everything together and now ready to shampoo. Let me tell ya this - after the hassle of putting everything together - just do the whole room and make it worth the bother.

Turn the machine on, and lower the shampoo head ALL THE WAY DOWN, unless your carpet is ultra thick and then maybe just one click up. Turn the dial on the shampoo mixing container to on. Push the machine forward rather quick and pull back slow. Do overlapping passes.This will spread the foam nice and evenly. Let the foam sit for about 5 minutes, then turn the dial to off and go back over it slowly forward and backwards massaging the foam solution deep into your carpet fibers. Then let it sit for 2 - 3 hours. Then vacuum really thoroughly. Right after I go through the shampooing process and the carpet is still moist - I use a carpet brush and I scrub the foam even deeper into the carpet.

Good luck. Hopefully you will be motivated in the fact that I just did mine and the high traffic carpet looks really good. I just had clients come in and they noticed the difference right away, as it looks like a pro came in and did the job.

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.

If you have any questions about the procedure of converting the Kirby G5 into a carpet cleaner, please feel free to request clarfication on this video right here on the Tip page. I hope that this video was helpful. If you did find the video helpful, please kindly rate this Tip as helpful by clicking on the Thumbs Up Icon in the lower right hand corner of the page.

Don't know how to use carpet shampooer


You should have the new aquamate, it has a blue top to fill with the water and water/soap solution that pops down into place. You will need to use your power nozzle hose and tube, connect it to your shampooer (make sure to connect the power connection just like the power nozzle). Fill your water up, large compartment is for cold water only and the smaller compartment is for one cap full of soap then the rest filled with cold water. Start with just a splash of water or an empty basin in the rainbow. The trigger will control your water spray and the brush underneath. There are two levers on the back of the shampooer marked with a shower head and a bar of soap. Use the soap with the shower head and the soap on and the water only with just the shower head on. You will want to also go over the area shampooed with both off to **** up the remaining water. Make sure to clean your floor thoroughly before shampooing.

You are missing the little screen that goes on the small hole in the tank where the shampooer hose attaches to the tank. Read this shampooing instruction guide for more info....

As for the bead, you need to lift the nozzle of the power head up and ver the bead to pick it up. The nozzle makes a great suction seal with the carpet and that's why it's pushing it. If you tried that, make sure that the green light on you nozzle is lighting up. If not, you either need to change the belt or make sure you hasve it on properly. For help with this, here's another guide...
