How to use the portable sprayer

How to set up your Kirby system into Portable Sprayer mode.


The portable sprayer can only be used in the blower mode with the Kirby System in neutral (visit page 26 of your owner manual). Place the hooks on the back of the air guard over the attaching bar located on the front of the unit. Push the air guard against the unit and turn the accessory lock clockwise to secure in it in place. Remove the outer bag by pressing the bag release button on the top of the bag, and rotating the bottom base of the bag away from the unit to remove. Then, connect the hose to the air exhaust port. Simply line up the arrow on the end of the hose with the arrow on the port; twist the hose clockwise until it locks.   Once your unit is set up in the blower mode with the hose attached to the front of the unit, it’s time to set up your sprayer. Unscrew the jar and fill it ¾ full with non-flammable liquid. The dip tube needs to be attached to the sprayer before screwing the jar. Then, attach the sprayer to the end of the hose. Hold sprayer horizontally and turn the unit on. Squeeze the trigger to spray the solution onto a newspaper to check that it works. Turn the control on the trigger to adjust the spray pattern.
