Tip & How-To about Vacuums

Rainbow Vacuum Cleaner

Make sure to rinse or replace the Hepa Filter on your Rainbow Vac. Failure to do so can, and will more than likely, result in burning up the motor!

Check this site out for more information on the Hepa Filter:

I just ran my rainbow e series accidentally without the separator. What should I do?


Your Rainbow should be o.k if you completely dried it out. But rinsing the hepa filter has usually not worked out well for most people (soory for that news) but good news is that they should last around 8 to 10 years with no rinsing.

What would happen if I would take out both hepa filters from my rainbow e-series? I do need extra super filtering - previous versions didn't have it and it was ok... Hepa filters are not so expensive but shipping it from US to Scotand makes it twice. What's more - I do not see any point of doing it. I was just thinking about throwing them away from my rainbow. I just don't need them. Is there anything what I do not see?


It won't hurt anything if you don't have a problem with the tiny particles that will be blown into the air. The Hepa filters trap small particles that can be unhealthy to breath. Most of these particles consist of human skin and hair, pet dander, dust mites, etc.. Many people are not bothered by these tiny particles. Others, like asthmatics, can have serious complications from them and the Hepa filters really help.

if you dopn't change the hepa filter will motor burn up or explode


No. The HEPA filter is simply to collect fine dust and allergens that make it past the water. Hmm. If it gets full/clogged and isn't changed, then the motor is more likely to burn up from overheating. It's more likely it will shut off if the filter gets full. It will not explode.

MY RAINBOW VACUUM HAS LOST SUCTION POWER AND i DON'T KNOW WHY


Your Rainbow E series has lost suction power, because you need a new hepa filter, ot your water basin gasket is messed up, or the center motor gasket is messed up or out of position.

Make sure your water basin is not cracked or broken, also.

If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,
Ralph

water leaking from out of the heppa filter


Reasons for that to happen:
a) You have tilted the vac while vacuuming
b) Used the Rainbow without separator (basket like thing on the bottom of the motor)
c) Overfilled the rainbow tank with water (may have happened when shampooing with AquaMate)

Clean and install back the separator, remove HEPA, Set the Rainbow on empty water pan (with HEPA removed) turn it on for a while so everything will dry. Install new HEPA.

You will have to get a new HEPA filter (you can find them HERE)

Good Luck,
Rocky
