e series aqua mates do not use a pump only pressure from water supply <faucet> if no water is getting through the valve assembly is probably bad. which has no servicable parts, reccomend taking to local vac shop to replace valve assebly in handle. not an easy job and can damage more if you attemp to fix. rainbow parts not cheep so dont want to break more than need to.

If you have the Rainbow e series, then this manual will explain exactly how to remove the separator from the wash basin and the basin from the caddy. (Please refer to page 6)
http://www.rainbowsystem.com/pdf/manuals/rainbow_eseries/eseries.pdf A special tool is stored on the underside of the power unit next to the separator , which you can use to loosen the brass nut holding the separator.
The manual also provides instructions on how to remove the basin and clean it.

In my opinion, it is most likely a blockage in the tubes that must be causing this problem. This seems to be a common issue with this cleaner. There is also a small metal ring between the separator and basin that may be dislodged and causing this problem. Please the manual for an idea of what I am talking about.

If that does not help, then its best to contact the customer support.call, (248) 643-7222,
Monday through Friday,
between 9:00am and 5:00pm (EST)
and ask for Customer Service.

MY RAINBOW VACUUM HAS LOST SUCTION POWER AND i DON'T KNOW WHY


Your Rainbow E series has lost suction power, because you need a new hepa filter, ot your water basin gasket is messed up, or the center motor gasket is messed up or out of position.

Make sure your water basin is not cracked or broken, also.

If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,
Ralph

If it is an earlier model, everything applies, except for the filter. They do not have filters, on any of the earlier models.

Don't know how to use carpet shampooer


You should have the new aquamate, it has a blue top to fill with the water and water/soap solution that pops down into place. You will need to use your power nozzle hose and tube, connect it to your shampooer (make sure to connect the power connection just like the power nozzle). Fill your water up, large compartment is for cold water only and the smaller compartment is for one cap full of soap then the rest filled with cold water. Start with just a splash of water or an empty basin in the rainbow. The trigger will control your water spray and the brush underneath. There are two levers on the back of the shampooer marked with a shower head and a bar of soap. Use the soap with the shower head and the soap on and the water only with just the shower head on. You will want to also go over the area shampooed with both off to **** up the remaining water. Make sure to clean your floor thoroughly before shampooing.

Rainbow Model e Series will not start. Where is the reset button on this vaccum?


There is no reset button on the canister. It may be a bad power switch, a power cord, or the button that presses in when you put the water basin in place may be bad - or the prong on the water basin that pushes that button in when you place the canister on the basin may be broken off.

Rainbow aqua mate II instructions


You have the vacuum and the basin, you put them together just like when you vacuum but don't put water in the basin. There is a large white container that comes with the shampooer. you fill that up with water and then you place the vacuum cleaner and the basin on top of that. Now you will need the water hose (not the one that has the gas pump hadle). Hook that in the same spot that you do for vacuuming. Then you take the shampooing handle( it will have a trigger and a little white bottle and some tubes hooked to it) the one end of it hooks to the water hose and the other end hooks to the wands. There are 2 wands that come with your shampooer. At the end of those the shampooer head will be attached. There are two separate tubes there is a thick tube ( there two tubes fused together) and a thin tube, they hook to the large white container that you fill with water. Just look and you will see where they go. Then there is a tube that hooks to the shampooer head at the bottom. The you take the little bottle and fill it with your shampoo. You should have gotten some clips to hool onto your hose so that you can keep the tubes attached to it so they aren't in the way. You should be set. I hope I helped.
