Use on stairs

I always used by Kirby as an upright or along with attachments. How do I remove the handle to use it as a cannister vacuum for the stairs? I just moved to a 2 story house and need to power on the stair carpet that I cannot get with the zip brush.

How do I use my kirby without upright handle, where do I put the bag?

The bag is left where it is. The hose goes on the front of the vacuum after removing the nozzle. See the How to Attach the Hose instruction video on the below site.

I bought a kirby g5 with no manual and can't figure out how to clean the couches with it!!!! help!!!!!

you can turn your Kirby into a handheld by removing the handle (button down on the bottom) if it came with all the attachments. Take the big handle off attach the small one onto it and you can take it and clean your couches, bed, stairs, etc. had mine for twelve years never had a problem with it.

How to shampoo stairs

HERE is the manual
When rating my solution rate the clarity of the explanation NOT whatever you like Kirby stair shampoo system. I do not believe this is the way to shampoo either but this is not me who designed it. Will get the job done but it is a lot of scrubbing and rubbing.

Good Luck

Up and down the stair to shampo it , which methol is best and what attachments to use?

HERE is the instruction on using Kirby to shampoo upholstery and stairs.

But I'd say go to automotive store, buy a spray can for car upholstery for $3-$6 and way less hassle and confusion...

Good Luck

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!!!

I have a Kirby Ultimate G Series. I have misplaced (no, it's not lost...I have it somewhere) the manual. How do I use the upholstery attachment? Does it hook to the outlet on the shampoo tank?

Kirby Ultimate G Upright won't stay up right

I figured out that when mine did the same thing, it was time to change the bag. It was too heavy for the handle to handle! LOL Hope that helps. Tracy
