Question about Rainbow Rainmate Air Purifier

1 Answer

I was just wondering if the fragrances contain oil in them?

I've read some of the problems other people are having. Some said the fragrances have oil in them and they plug up the rainmate. Is this true or not?

You simply remove the spindle and wash it out, and the spin wheel too if ot gets a build up. I use an antiseptic sort of smelling scent in mine and it helps capture dust. That is part of the build uop on the spindle. Simply turn it on the spin wheel and remove it and then wash it under hot water and let the hot water course through the spindle to clean it out.

How can I make my own venta Airwasher Water Treatment?


I use white vinegar and hot water. I soak the disk for a few hours. It's amazing. My venta is 10 years old. I also use different scented oils in mine to fragrance the room. I use it daily. I got a new venta but like the older model better. It is my sleeping machine it provides a white noise that I sleep very well to. The new one is too quiet and seems more fragile.

Scent cartridges


I'm not sure where you can get scented cartridges, but I know that home- made scent packs can be made using aromatic oils. There's dozens of scents. just place some on a piece of cotton and place in the container where the cartridge would go.

Electric motor makes screeching sound and stops running.


The motor has worn bushings making the motor shaft hot and swell and eventually seize. You can let it cool off and it will more than likely run again until it heats up again. The motor will have to be replaced if you want to repair it.

I bought a used Austin Air HealthMate and it has an awful smell coming from it... it's similar to the fragrance that was in the house we purchased it from. We've had it running for over a week near an open...


I have the same problem although I figured it was due to the filter being close to five years old. I have had the Healthmate since 1996 and the current filter is 4 1/2 years old. The unit is in my son's room and I had noticed for a while (maybe the last 6 months or so) that his room had a foul sour smell to it. My wife & I thought it was our son as he is close to puberty and starting to need deodorant but I took the unit out of his room and the smell is gone. I'd be willing to bet that both you and I need a new filter.

I just set up my new rainmate in my son's room with the eucalyptus scent (he has a cold/cough), and I needed to know how safe is it to leave the unit running overnight, and how long does it take for the...


Hey im a dealer for Rainbow. RockyNR1 is correct but let me just add that you can fill it to over the line if you want as long as the 'misting' still happens, be careful that the bowl is not near the edge of the surface as the spinning water might make it fall off the side. How long the water lasts is also very dependent on how large the room is that its in. Lastly you should be able to leave it run for 24/7

Cloudy looking water


Does it do this when you DON'T add any of the fragrance oils???? If so, it's yuck from the air. BUT, the fragrance oils are OIL and they don't mix with water, so as it swirls it tries to emulsify the oils into the water and that causes it to become cloudy.
I would still clean it at least every other day....every day would be preferable....especially if you live somewhere that mold flourishes like I do (Central Texas)
