Rainbow shotting water out

Is there a way I can get into this vacuum so I can see why it is shooting water out? I cannot remove the aerator peice inside that says it should be cleaner after each use. The screw seems frozen, I removed the 3 screws from the bottom and can't seem to see what is holding it together- can't get the bottom off. Any suggestions?

    I just replaced the hepa filter in my eSeries and pretty sure I have all back together correctly, but now have water blowing out the back of the vacuum. (Other than dirty filter it has been working fine.)
    Any suggestions?

My 4 year old tipped my e series on its side while it was turned off and had water in it, and now it is shooting water from the back filter. I bought a new filter, but it hasn't gotten here yet. I am affraid to turn it on even when I get the filter because there might be water in the motor. The seperater is not cracked and seems to be fine, so is it possible for the water to get to the motor by tipping it over? If so is there a way to remove the water.

Are you filling the water pan too full? Check that the separater spins on the shaft freely too.

Rainbow e series shooting out dust


Did you place water in the water pan? Are you picking up drywall dust, baby powder, wood ash, etc.? This type of material is difficult to be trapped by water.

Can not get the housing off


Remove the 4 screws on the bottom of the canister, and also carefully remove the water basin gasket. You will reattach the gasket with rubber contact cement when you're finished with your repair/cleaning.

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

Rainbow vacuum-water not spinning


Remove hose and turn on the unit with nothing on the intake - see if it helps - feel the suction with hand.

a) If it works fine without the hose - look for a clog in the hose, wand or the nozzle

b) If the suction is weak even without the hose:
Clean the separator,
If this is e-series or E2 Rainbow - remove HEPA and try vacuuming without it (sometimes it is too dirty so stops good airflow). New HEPAs HERE.
If this is SE Rainbow - remove exhaust cap and if there is a sponge - take it out

Still no luck - It has to be serviced

Good Luck,
Rocky

Series e


First purchase a new aerator nut and aerator. Now spray where the nut meets the separator liberally with liquid wrench , let soak for an hr or 2 and then take a tooth brush to it at the same place. Don't try loosening it with a screw driver , use a deep well socket. Sorry I don't remember what size. if this doesn't work you can try a torch. To prevent this in the future thoroughly dry the tank after washing it and store with the aerator and nut OFF .

Cleaning the filter on a e series rainbow vacuum
Posted by jonesjpc on Jul 06, 2008
This one does not have the tabs to depress as but has two screws in that area still doesn’t see how to get to the filter. Also I need instructions to replace power cord; On the E series single speed.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. On the Rainbow E Series there really is no actual filter – the water is the filter for this particular vacuum. Before you remove the separator under the motor, place a newspaper or towel under the Rainbow without the water pan under the vacuum and then turn it on for a short period of time and spin the water moisture out of the motor and separator; then some of the maintenance is to remove the separator under the motor and clean that and then replace it. As far as replacing the cord there are screws under the Rainbow that need removal and then you can get to the end of the cord for replacement. The easiest way is to mark your wires and the cord will be much easier to replace otherwise check the owner’s manual for cord replacement or check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to cal the cust serv @ the Rainbow factory for questions.

Need to install rainbow side water pan latch and spring. How to do it?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Rainbow E Series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum. The Rainbow latch can be replaced but I believe it is a pop rivet that holds and replaces the old latch and to replace the new latch, I have seen it done but if you don’t have the right tools you may want to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area, it can be done. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Remove suction motor on rainbow vacuum


Take off the water tank, remove the screw, should be four, that will separate the 2 pieces, remove the rubber seal, remove the screws, 8 If I remember, disconnect the wires to the motor, it should pull out. Replace motor, hook up the wires, screw it back together, glue the water seal back on.
