Rainbow E-series Aquamate II connection problem

I borrowed from someone a Rainbow E series Aquamate II shampooing system and trying to assemble it with 70% success. I am almost done, but...

I have assembled most of the system, but where is says to connect the water hose to the "gun-like" part - the two parts don't connect because the diameter of an equal size or I don't know what the water hose is. Is it different from my vacuum hose? Please advise - I borrowed it from someone and I cannot assemble it the proper way. I read the instruction on-line from one of your experts and the connection part is not happening. Also, the tubing seems to be two small where it has to connect "big and small" parts. I can get them on only halfway - it does not go in all the way.

It would be best if someone called me on the phone - I would really appreciate it. I need to return it very soon and I did not use it yet.

My home number is 718-627-4111 and my cell is 718-200-4922. THANK YOU SO MUCH WHOEVER YOU ARE FOR YOUR HELP!

Sincerely,
Yelena

How does the nonelectric hose detach from the wand on rainbow e series to connect to aquamate


Rainbow E Series attachment hoses fit the wand with friction. The wand will just twist and pull out of an attachment hose. Now for use with an Aquamate, if you have the newest aquamate like here:
Rainbow AquaMate 3 carpet shampooer , the aquamate needs an electrified hose made for water pickup and a stainless steel long pipe (stainless steel so it will not rust, you can use chrome but it will rust) .

No water coming out


I am guessing you are speaking of the AquaMate shampoo attachment. Please go to our web site to determine what model you have. Look at the manuals page to see all models.

Aquamate II doesn't come on


The early version of the AquaMate II was very sensitive to clogging. Run very hot water through all the lines in the wash cycle to clean out soup buildup. Let us know if that fixes it.

Rainbow E series AquaMate II leaks around the quick connect/disconnect how to i fix the leak??


You have to get new O rings for it. You can find them at an Auto supply store, or hardware store. If where you first go does not have them, keep looking. You will find them.

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

Thank you,
Ralph

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.

Aquamate II NOT WORKING !!


If this is pre-owned unit that you bought - it may be clogged. If people who had it did not rinse shampoo solution out of the system after using it - shampoo becomes thick and sticky when dry and may clog the tubes. Also it may impair the pump.

Pump may also be defective. It should make a humming noise while in operation. It is hard to hear when vacuum is on so take the Rainbow with water bowl of the white AQM basin, turn on the vacuum while AquaMate is still plugged in, put your hand on the black plastic on the white AquaMater water nontainer and you should feel pump vibrating inside.

If you feel it start with filling up the white tank and bottle with warm water, turn AQM on and try rinsing it. However if water can not get through at all - it will not help.

Then take the handle apart (a bit tricky but be careful ant to break the plastic and you will get it open). See if there are no clogs there. in tubes nor the VALVE.

If no clogs fing - you will have to acces the pomp and few short tubes inside this plastic box assembled onto the water tank. to get it open you may have to break off 4 latches that hold top halve to the bottom. You can purchase one HERE. Make sure that tubes inside are not bent at the sharp angle and obstructing the flow. If you need any tubing - you can find it cheap at Home Depot (have a sample with you so you pick the right diameter).

Clean all tues inside and you possibly will have to take the pump apart to get it cleaned. If it is not working you can buy one HERE.

Stil no luck - put EVERYTHING in a plastic bag or several bags and then in a box and ship it to us - we will get it running.

Good Luck,
Rocky
