Not clear about your question... but try and see if you can remove the unit and flush out the water tank and the filters.

There are several possibilities for low pick up. The most common problem is that the lid is not correctly seated on the recovery (lower) tank. It is also possible that the rubber seal on the motor standpipe is out of place. The round tube on the bottom of the tank sits against the seal. Remove the tank and look for a large rubber ring on top of a plastic pipe. A less common issue is damage to the rug nozzle because the screws holding it against the carpet have been broken loose by dropping the shampooer on it's nose.

Featherlite model 3M-852H


see this instructions:God bless you
Ensure the Dirt Devil is connected to a working power supply if it does not turn on or operate. Check the fuse or breaker and replace or reset as necessary.

  • 2 Empty the dirty water tank if there is little or no suction. Turn off the Dirt Devil and grab the top of the dirty water tank. Push on the latch to release the tank and pull the tank off the base. Remove the lid and empty the dirty water into a sink. Replace the cap and hook the front of the tank onto the machine base. Hook the nozzle on the base so that the nozzle is level with the cleaner base. Push the back of the dirty water tank down and into position.


  • 3 Check the dirty water tank and empty as necessary if there is water leaking from the cleaner. Open the latch on the top of the solution reservoir and pull the reservoir forward. Fill with Dirt Devil brand cleaner to the fill mark. Fill the rest of the reservoir with hot water and close the cap. Replace on the base unit.
  • 4 Make sure the solution reservoir is seated firmly in the base unit if there is no cleaning solution dispensing from the unit. Fill the solution tank with cleaner and water if the level is low.
  • 5 Examine the hose and nozzles for possible obstructions if the carpet cleaner does not seem to be operating correctly. Remove any blockages.

    My Hoover SteamVac Max Extract 77's dirty water tank won't fill. The water seems to just filter right back to the floor. What do i do???

    I have never used a shampooer before when I use it it says to empty out dirty water. I don't have any left. My tank is empty. Am I doing something wrong.


    Suggest that you do the following.
    Remove the TOP ("Clean water") tank. Fill it 1/2 full of water. Put the top on the clean water tank and place it back on the machine.

    Release the machine handle and remove the cover of the "dirty" water tank. Inspect the back of the tank to be sure that the vacuum adapter in located in the rear of the dirty water tank. If not-that is your problem. If yes, restore the top to the dirty water tank.

    Power the machine on.
    On a kitchen floor, power the machine on. Pull the trigger and hold it for about 30 seconds. You should see water gathering around the brushes. If not, that is a problem.

    With water around the brushes, release and lower the handle and and move the machine over the water. It should vacuum the water into the dirty water tank.
    Is all of that happening?

    What parts go to a Kirby Shampooer?


    There is a shampooer head with shampooer brushroll, water tank, small hose that hooks to the tank, collection tray

    Need to use the Kirby shampoo. It goes down as wet suds but you pick up the suds with the vacuum when it drys. Fill tank adding 1 cap full of soap (kirby soap only) per level on the side, this attaches on the side where the bag is attached

    After using the shampooer you need to reattach the vacuum bag and main brushroll nozzle as though you were just vacuuming up dirt.

    Instructions:

    Lift the front of your kirby up (front part with light) open the handle on the dail in the front (if epquipt), remove the power head, put on height adjustment on highest level, turn dial on front of power head until you see 2 red arrows facing each other, unlock by turning knob, power head should come right off, get shampooer out the power head for shampooer with collection tray, make sure dial is set red on red, put on front of Kirby and lock in, turn dial to green on green arrows, fill tank adding 1 cap full of soap (Kirby soap only) per level on the side, this attaches on the side where the bag is attached, line up arrow and notch and turn, to hook up hose put Kirby down to lowest level, notched end of hose hooks in on tray other end on the tank,on/off switch refers to the foam, Turn machine on to lay the foam & scrub carpet, take shampooer back off to extract the foam once it's dry.

    Good luck.

    There is no foam in the hose as I run the kirby shampooer. What could the problem be?


    Check out the manual HERE.
    It may be clogged valve on the solution tank.
    Very dirty or clogged sponge (shampooer tank)
    Very dirty or clogged screen(shampooer tank where hose is connected)
    It is pretty common that that small screen comes out and stays in the hose elbow.

    Where do I put the water.


    1. Release the handle and lay the machine
    handle back to access the tank.
    2. Remove the tank from the base of the
    machine by lifting the tank carry handle.
    3. Carry like a bucket to the sink. Rotate the handle forward
    to unlatch the lid. Lift off and set the lid aside.
    4. Fill up the bladder with clean hot tap water.
    *Do not boil or microwave water as it can
    destroy the bladder.
    5. Replace the top of the tank by matching the
    lid and tank edges. Handle must be in the
    forward position in order to replace lid. Rotate
    Note: Remember to secure the lid and test to make
    sure it is secure before picking up the Tank.
    6. Place tank into machine base, seating firmly in place.
    Rotate tank handle back into latched position. Bring
    machine handle back into upright position.

    Dirty Water drops behind shampooer


    You are over sudsing your recovery tank. The machine is made to shut off the air flow if water starts to be pulled into the motor, but bubbles want trigger that. So if there are a lot of bubbles in your recovery tank, the get sucked into the motor (Which will destroy it eventually) and then the moisture gets exhausted onto the floor from the motor.

    Solutions
    1. Use less soap (Read the directions, you may be using too much)
    2. Use a different kind of soap (The concentration might not be right for your machine)
    3. Use a defoamer (Rug Doctor has a defoamer)

    Your shampooer is not broken. (sorry Fanny)

    You are missing a wee screen that fits on the hole where the little hose plugs into the tank. Check inside the hose end or down inside your shampooer box. Here's a link to my online Kirby shampooer instructions...
