Question about Rainbow 75th Anniversary Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

How much water goes in the tank?

I know this is a silly question, but I borrowed this vacume from my Mother-In- Law, and she told us to fill the tank up over the little bump. Do you actually cover up the bump or do you leave the top of it above water? I'm not sure what you call the little thing that protrudes up in the middle of the tank, but that is what I'm calling a bump! I'm sure if I had the manuel that came with the vacume I would know how much water it takes. I don't really want to question my Mother-In-Law's intelligence by asking so can someone help me out? There is a fill line on the tank and it looks to me like it's under the bump. My husband thinks that it is over the bump!

Water has to be level with the tip of the bump. 1/8 of the inch above or under - would not make a difference.

Good luck,

I need to know why the Hoover Max Extreme keeps telling me t check the tank?


Hi! The solution and water goes in the top tank. Dirty water is suctioned into the bottom tank as you're scrubbing your floors. To fill the clean water tank, remove the clean water tank cap. The cap serves as a measuring cap for the solution. Fill the cap with Hoover carpet washer solution to the fill line. Pour detergent into tank. Fill the rest of the clean water tank with hot tap water and twist the cap back on. You are now ready to clean. Hope this helps!

Hi! I am borrowing this cleaner from a friend,


No, it just might need a new pump belt. When the belt is worn it won't dispense water or solution. Here is the belt you need:

Where do you put the soap cleaner, does this go


Hello,
The cleaning solution goes in the top tank. Fill top tank with hot water first, then add the cleaning solution. That way it doesn't foam up. The tank lid is also a cup to measure how much solution you put in. Usually fill to top line. Make sure when you put tank on machine it snaps in place. if you have a manual, refer to it for instructions if you need to.
Hope this helps.

How to use


first take the large tank out open the top of it and place hot water in the small round opening, than put the lid back on and set the tank firmly back in place, then take the small shampoo resivour and fill that with only genuine bissell shampoo ( if you dont it could ruin the machine !!!! ) then theres a small knob near the small tank adjust that to regular or heavy traffic if its really bad.

Put water in the tank to the fill line. Turn on the unit, and press the spray as you need it. This is a silly question, and should be taken off the board.

Hoover steam vac clean surge


The recovery tank lid isn't locked down all of the way around. The foam filter on the inside of the tank lid is up too far, needs at leasat a 1/4 in gap from the top. The filter screen by thye indicator is clogged. Some have a duct that sits in front of the recovery tank, either it isn't there or not pushed down all of the way.
