The clean water tanks leaks. What's causing the problem?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum. You can down load the owner manual from the Hoover website www.hoover.com . It looks like the one of the holding or recovery tanks my not be in place, leaking, cracked or damaged, or the clear tube is leaking and needs replacing. I looked 2 the owner’s manual and it does not show the clear tube but the vacuum does come apart and just back track the clear tube and mark the screws when you disassemble the unit. Other wise , please call the factory or a local Hoover warranty station in your area. 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.

Why will the motor on my rainbow power on if I hold it up off of the water basin and push the safety switch with a screwdriver but when it's sitting on the water basin it won't power on ?


There is a little tab that sticks up on the water basin, this tab pushes in on the switch allowing the unit to run, I'm guessing the little tab on the tank is broken off.

What happens when i run my rainbow vacuume without water ?


The Rainbow must have water as this is the only way it filters the dirt before the motor. If you don't use water, all the dirt will go through the motor and could create serious issues. We have a cleaning service that will clean your Rainbow inside and out making it like new. Call us for details.

Hi, each time i turn on the vacuum cleaner, the water in the tank will bubble and foam causing an overflow although the water level is just right. i will have to throw out the water and refill again....


Try changing the water before you turn it on the first time -- that will probably help you resolve the issue. It seems like there is probably some sort of soap or carpet shampoo in the system causing your foam issue. If your carpets have been shampooed or if you have spilled soap or detergent on your carpet at any point, the vacuum is probably picking up remnants of the soap when you are cleaning, and it is working its way into the water supply of the vacuum. This will continue to happen until you have completely removed the soap from your carpet -- and if you haven't cleaned out your vacuum very well. Try rinsing out the hoses and water tank really well, to make sure that the soap is not stuck in the vacuum itself and give it a try. Hopefully just rinsing out the machine will fix the problem.

I have a Rainbow Aqua Mate II and have it all hooked up but water will not come out of the white tank. I am using the trigger but nothing is happening.


It sometimes takes a good soaking with water in the tank for a while. Maby a Week or longer, and it also takes a little running time. Not more than 10 minutes at a time, then cool for 30 minutes inbetween runnings, for the water to pump out of them. Do not even hook up any hoses, until it pumps water.

Thank you,
Ralph

Rainbow e2 system. Will not power up


the water basin has a safety on it so the unit cannot run without it. if you look on the bottom of the rainbow you can see a small oval shaped space that you can depress just to test and see if it still runs it will only run with this depressed.

Water leaking from out of the heppa filter


Reasons for that to happen:
a) You have tilted the vac while vacuuming
b) Used the Rainbow without separator (basket like thing on the bottom of the motor)
c) Overfilled the rainbow tank with water (may have happened when shampooing with AquaMate)

Clean and install back the separator, remove HEPA, Set the Rainbow on empty water pan (with HEPA removed) turn it on for a while so everything will dry. Install new HEPA.

You will have to get a new HEPA filter (you can find them HERE)

Good Luck,
Rocky

Re: Rainbow E-series Cleaning System


Check the separator to see if it will turn freely, if not, take it off and see if the shaft will turn, if it does then the separator is causing a problem. If you can't turn the shaft, then there is a problem with the motor, and you will have to check the motor.
