You have to remove rear cover (on the opposite side than the intake is) There are 2 kinds of HEPA and 2 kinds of filter covers:

HEPA encased in black plastic - on the bottom of the unit you will see two latches and you can use a flat screw driver release them and filter cover just pops out.

HEPA older style (white filter with black plastic frame) - there are 2 Phillips screws on the bottom of the unit and 2 more under the cord caddy. Use flat screw driver to remove the cord caddy (put it in between the housing and the caddy and it would come off)

If you need filters - they are HERE.
Good Luck

It's plugged!

If it happened suddenly, you have a jam somewhere. Unhook the hose to see if it's in the hose or the unit.

If it happened over time then it's likely dirty or full. Wet dirt can accumulate near the blower and inhibit suction. Cleaning the filter is almost always a good idea.

Best to you, Jidza

Need to know how to install rainbow water pan latch and spring latch

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.

Changing the filter in Rainbow e series


Some of the e-series has a corrugated filter in the top section. To get to it, remove the clear plastic panels that are the sides. Most have 3 screws on each side to move, then the top half will come loose. There also is filter on the back, there is a door to remove to get to it.
