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,

2 Other Users Have the Same Problem Comment by deucedown, posted on May 26, 2008 Same problem here, I have only used the shampooer twice and water will not come out of the basin. I need to shampoo my carpets today and this is very discouraging. Somebody please help. I hooked it up and followed the directions. Comment by Angela31, posted on May 26, 2008 We are having the same problem. Everything is connected and no water is coming out. We have only used our Aqua mate 3 other times. Please help. Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Rainbow E Series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum / Aqua Mate. It has been a long time since I have operated a Rainbow Aqua Mate so I suggest that The best solution to operate the Rainbow Aqua Mate is to contact the Rainbow Tech Support line listed below or to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer and have them send out a Rainbow Aqua Mate owner’s manual so that you can operate the unit successfully. By listening to the 3 questions listed above the actual water basin I believe is the recovery water tank to be emptied when full and I believe that there is a separately bottle or tank that the solution goes in order to dispense the water. If you have further questions please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer. . 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.
