Where do I get an adapter for my rainbow shampooer


This really depends on what Rainbow you have and which Aquamate you are using. There really is not an adapter for the Aquamate. The newest aquamate out there is for the E2 type 12 black that came out in 2012.

There is a modification of this aquamate to fit older E series vacuums (comes with a cord) , but you will need to have an electrified hose made for water pick up to use. You can find that aquamate here

How does the nonelectric hose detach from the wand on rainbow e series to connect to aquamate


Rainbow E Series attachment hoses fit the wand with friction. The wand will just twist and pull out of an attachment hose. Now for use with an Aquamate, if you have the newest aquamate like here:
Rainbow AquaMate 3 carpet shampooer , the aquamate needs an electrified hose made for water pickup and a stainless steel long pipe (stainless steel so it will not rust, you can use chrome but it will rust) .

Aquamate II NOT WORKING !!


If this is pre-owned unit that you bought - it may be clogged. If people who had it did not rinse shampoo solution out of the system after using it - shampoo becomes thick and sticky when dry and may clog the tubes. Also it may impair the pump.

Pump may also be defective. It should make a humming noise while in operation. It is hard to hear when vacuum is on so take the Rainbow with water bowl of the white AQM basin, turn on the vacuum while AquaMate is still plugged in, put your hand on the black plastic on the white AquaMater water nontainer and you should feel pump vibrating inside.

If you feel it start with filling up the white tank and bottle with warm water, turn AQM on and try rinsing it. However if water can not get through at all - it will not help.

Then take the handle apart (a bit tricky but be careful ant to break the plastic and you will get it open). See if there are no clogs there. in tubes nor the VALVE.

If no clogs fing - you will have to acces the pomp and few short tubes inside this plastic box assembled onto the water tank. to get it open you may have to break off 4 latches that hold top halve to the bottom. You can purchase one HERE. Make sure that tubes inside are not bent at the sharp angle and obstructing the flow. If you need any tubing - you can find it cheap at Home Depot (have a sample with you so you pick the right diameter).

Clean all tues inside and you possibly will have to take the pump apart to get it cleaned. If it is not working you can buy one HERE.

Stil no luck - put EVERYTHING in a plastic bag or several bags and then in a box and ship it to us - we will get it running.

Good Luck,
Rocky
