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.

Aqua mate II wont spray water


It is always best to run hot clean water through the wash cycle to flush out all soap when finished. This helps to prevent soap from drying in the lines and pump. You can also try this to help free a pump that is not working correctly.

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

New Rainbow aquamate. It is not letting the water flow through.


Sometimes it takes up to 10 or so minutes for the Aqua mate 2 to begin pumping out anything.

If it is the new Aqua mate 12 (the big blue one, that is like a giant power head) the same thing is true for it.

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

Thank you,

Dont know how to hook up the carpet cleaning part of the vacuum


You have to have the Aquamate II shampoo attachment in order to clean/shampoo your carpet. Go to the Rainbow website and you can purchase it if you don't already have one - if you do have one, this site also has simple directions on how to set up the Aquamate to shampoo your carpet.

I have my vacuum set to shampoo a rug, but cannot get the water to come out


Sometimes it takes up to 10 or so minutes for the Aqua mate 2 to begin pumping out anything.

If it is the new Aqua mate 12 (the big blue one, that is like a giant power head) the same thing is true for it.

If it is an earlier model Aquamate, then it is clogged somewhere in the hose, or the fluid control valve is clogged.

The water separator is the thing that spins in the center of the motor where your water basin attaches to it. It looks like a cone shaped fan looking thing. It should be cleaned after every use.

Use your Rainbow separator cleaning brush, or a tooth brush, if you do not have the Rainbow one. They are just like tooth brushes.

Never store your Rainbow canister on your water basin, with or without water in it. It can and will ruin your vacuum in dew time.

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.
