Your Rainbow E series has lost suction power, because you need a new hepa filter, or 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 it is an earlier model, everything applies, except for the filter. They do not have filters, on any of the earlier models.

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

Thank you,

    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.



    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.

    You can get manuals either here,

Leaking Carper Shampooer


I have an Eureka Atlantis Deep Steam Extractor and it does the same thing. It's not new but it hasn't been used much.

The manual says to "push the tank in until it snaps into place". Everything looks fine across the board so I believe this particular model is just a bad design overall.

My recomendation: Get a new carpet cleaner from Target or Wal-Mart.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

make sure the brushes on the shampooer head are spinning and that you have the shampooer head lowered all the way down to its lowest setting.

make sure the brushes on the shampooer head are spinning and that you have the shampooer head lowered all the way down to its lowest setting. Also...shampoo at a slower pace than you would move when vacuuming...when both putting down the suds on heavily soiled areas and scooping them up. The more oils in the carpet, the less suds you'll see when the shampooer is working properly. one more thing that may be mentioned in the guide is the little round sud screen that attaches to one end of the shampooer hose...make sure that little mesh screen is there and seated properly. It is what produces the suds from the shampoo solution.

Your shampooer is not broken. (sorry Fanny)

You are missing a wee screen that fits on the hole where the little hose plugs into the tank. Check inside the hose end or down inside your shampooer box. Here's a link to my online Kirby shampooer instructions...
