I assembled my mist fan as per the instruction manual and find that if I fill with water there is immediate leakage where the tank goes into the tank holder. Should there not be some form of seal when the to are put together. Please adise.

Make sure that the pin on the back cover penetrates deeply enough into the unit to activate the power. I too couldn\'t figure out why mine wouldn\'t start until I pressed hard on the bottom right corner of the back cover. When I did the unit started immediately because the pin wasn\'t fully inserted. To solve the problem I held the cover tight with a piece of duct tape and haven\'t had a problem since.
I run mine day and night while home and clean and re-fill it every morning. I also use one of the room odor eliminators in my Rainmate. Fill the water one inch above the line about an inch off the bottom of the water container.
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
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 not to place the machine too close to the edge of whatever it's on as it may fall off. The rainmate can be ran 24/7 (mine does :D)as a side note the only upkeep it should need (other than the water of course) is check the little hole on the bottem of the spinner. if that is ever clogged just punch it though with a toothpick.
How you proceed is going to depend on how comfortable you are taking it apart.
Given it's age and purchase condition, warranty isn't an issue. You will either be able to dis-assemble the purifier and try taking the motor apart and reassembling, or you can find a replacement motor (I've seen some on the web, they start at ~$50).
i had the same problem. The goo pulled from the air gums up the small orifice atthe bottom of the stem that sticks down into the water. If the water cannot be pulled up into the stem and expelled out towards the bowl at high speed, it cannot work. Take the upper, motor half off, unplug it hold the plate with one hand and twist the stem 1/4 turn and it comes right off. Clean the crud (yes, its your own skin cells) and the hole with warm water and soap. put it back together and refill with water and it works like new. this is now monthly maintenance for me
