Question about Vacuums
Power is going to the vac when shampooer is attached but it will not go on.
If your trying to shampoo your carpets but the water flow is to weak and it trickles through the spout to the carpet leaving small puddles
This problem often occurs when the foam filter is not replaced after rinsing or ends up in the shampoo hose at an angle preventing foaming. If you take the small shampoo hose of the shampoo tank the filter should be on the tank, if not, it may have come off and be in the hose. If it’s not there locate it, likely in the area where you last cleaned the shampooer or in the box, and put it back on the tank. While this should be cleaned after each use, care should be taken to replace it and not lose it.
The problem may also occur if you don’t actually add the Kirby Dry Foam Shampoo to the water or if you use some thin else.
Take care to also clean and replace the air filter after rinsing. It is located under the shampoo tank where the tank fits onto the vacuum.
