Converting the machine to use the uphostery brush

I have lost my manual and cannot figure out how to convert to the uphostery cleaner. I'm not sure where to connect the hose so that there is suction. Can you help me?

Remove the duct (#3)in front of the water tank. Your hose on one end will have a duct on it, insert it in the place of the duct that you took out. Don't forget to put that duct in when you are done with the hose.

Not sure about the parts and what they do

Hi There,

First for your Shampoo attachment, all Kirby generation models came with this carpet shampoo attachment. It really does do a nice job at cleaning carpeting and rugs. In terms of how you use it, here's two links for you, the first is written instructions on how to use it, and the second is a video that shows you how to attach it to your Kirby and use it. In the video it's actually the Kirby Sentria that they use, but the procedure on converting it from a vacuum into a carpet cleaner are the exact same for the Sentria as they are for your G5.

Written Instruction Manual For Kirby Carpet Shampooer

Video Instructions On How To Install & Use Kirby Carpet Shampooer Attachment.

Now in terms of the other part that you were asking about. I believe the part your asking about is called the Intake Guard. I think this is the part that you're asking about, here's a picture of the Intake Guard:

The Intake Guard is connected to the front of the machine only when you want to convert your Kirby from a vacuum cleaner into a blower. This protects anything from going into the fan while it's being run, as well as pushing the safety switch that allows the machine to turn on.

I really hope that this information was helpful to you. If you have any follow up questions, or need further help with your new Kirby G5, please don't hesitate to add a comment here on the Fixya repair page, and I'll be more then happy to answer any and all of your follow up questions.

If you found my repair helpful to you, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave feedback. This is greatly appreciated by the Fixya community.

Thanks again,

Setting up for apolstery cleaning

Hoover Steam Vac F5853-900 Series 17.9

Remove the tank front panel by sliding it straight up. Replace panel with converter (located on end of hose, end is shaped like front panel that you slide out.Before connecting tube to cleaner, make sure black tabs are extended by pulling tan collar roward tube.Open door on hood labeled "Stair/Upholstery Cleaning Connection" Press round solution tube connector onto round projection inside door. Press connecator collar down firmly to ensure that it is fully connected.
When the solution tube is connected to the deep cleaner, the nozzle brushes will automatically be turned off and will not rotate when the deep cleaner is turned on even if the speed selector is in the HI oar LO position. For full suction, it is important that the recovery tank lid is properly secured before cleaning.The tank lid is replaced in a hinge-like manner. Position front of lid under tabs on front of tank. Rotate lid down onto tank. Make sure lid is secure on all sides before cleaning.Hope this helps.
Good Luck

Need instruction manual

a few steps down in Google, I found the whole manual in adobe format! I only need the filter for vacuuming, so I'm in the clear---except that it won't spurt soapy water out...I just squirt it on with a spray-bottle and use the brush and suction from the cleaner. Sorta fixed the problem but I'm desperate to get on with cleaning this very small area (an RV)

Bissell carpet cleaner brushes won't turn

Make sure you have released the handle, as if you wanted to push the machine forward. If the handle is locked upright, the brushes do not spin.

If they still don't spin, you may have a broken belt. Look carefully at the base, on each side. As I face the front of mine, on the right side of the machine, a small belt goes around one brush and a small cog wheel. On the left side, a larger belt goes around both brushes. If either belt is broken, the brushes will not spin. This can happen if you let gunk build up inside the clear plastic side pieces or around or above the brushes. It's very important to constantly be cleaning your Bissell. The belts can be ordered online and replaced. See your owner's manual.

My hoover steam vac

OKay! I've figured it out! After making sure I had the cleaning solution container connected properly, the "lint filter" thingy clear, the attachment plug thingy unplugged, the filter in it's proper position, (about a cm down from the seal), and the seal on the filter was all good, etc etc etc, the brushes in properly...I was about to drive over this steam cleaner with my car!

After taking a break and going back to it, I discovered that I didn't have the lid to my dirty water tank (or air tank, as I was starting to call it) properly closed. There are two lips that you have to make sure the lid "hinges" from, and THEN snap the lid shut. This made a seal that allowed this steam cleaner to **** up all kinds of gooey gunk from my carpets! The brushes work, the suction works, it's a FABULOUS machine! It doesn't get any louder when it's sucking up water, either.

All this AND I had the instructions! Go figure!

Belt replacement Hoover carpet cleaner

Hoover steamvacs don't use belts. If the brushes are not turning, pull the brush block out, turn the machine on and see if the square hole where the brush block was, is turning. If not then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it out. most times I have found , replace it.
