Rainbow E series Canister shampooer

I have the Rainbow E series shampooer all hooked up and when I turn it on no water sprays out. It seems like the shampooer pump is not working. I have checked the hose but it seems fine and the pump does not get warm from trying to pump

    I have the same problem, I've used the shampooer once and it now has no water coming from the water line. Can't find any blockage.

    water and shampoo will not spray out of my shampooer

  • zillamena Jan 03, 2009

    I have had my shampooer for 3 years and just hooked it up for the first time. No water will come out of the hoses which go into the hanfle and come out the other end. I can't see what is happening inside the handle and there is no way to open the handle and check the hoses for holes or cuts or blockage.. it will **** up water but won't put any water out .

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.

How do i hook up the shampooer to my rainbow e series e2 canister have no instructions


Wow it's been a while. I think the shampoo attachment needs to be hook on the blowind part of the machine. If I didn't help take itto any vacuum store, they should be able to show you. Sorry thats the best I can give you. Chris

Shampooer will not work on my e2 Rainbow. Help!


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,
Ralph

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 Shampooer


It's been while since I used one. Hopefully things haven't changed.

One hose has to be be connected to the faucet of the sink using the adaptor. The other hose is supposed to go to the Rainbow iteslf.

one gets the rug wet and the other extracts.

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.
