Rainmate not working?

I have a new 2008 Rainmate unit and it seems is not working. It still spinning but is not doing the usual splashing of water in the water base, it sounds only like a fan running. It is only 4 months old. Can you tell me if this means that is not working? How can I have it fixed?

Thanks,
klv

Remove the tip by twisting 1/2 turn and it will come off! use a Q-tip and clean it out! Replace and should work just fine!!! From time to time it gets gummed up!

If you don't have the water up to or above the the line on the bowl, the rainmate will not work. I've noticed on mine that if I keep it running for more than about 12 hours enough water will evaporate that the unit stops working. Try keeping the water level about an inch above that line, and there's no reason it shouldn't work. If that doesn't do it, call your local distributor, they should be able to help you.

Rainmate is not working, is there a warranty on it


Try to lubricate the fan bearings/bushings, it should help. If this does not help, check the repair price, or buy a new one

I "won" a Rainmate from


No, not that I'm aware of. But, the problem itself, may be in the electrical receptacle. A loose wire, a bad connection or interior damage could all cause the circuit breaker to trip. Or it may simply be the case, of line that air purifier is plugged into, is simply overloaded, because of other electrical appliances are on the same circuit of tripped the circuit breaker. Most air purifiers have their on circuit breaker or fuse built-in to the unit. And that, will usually trip before the circuit breaker in the breaker panel of your home.

Here's how you test that theory: Plug the unit into another outlet, that is on an entirely different circuit than the original one and turn it ON. If this trips a different circuit breaker, then you know it's an internal problem with the unit. If it doesn't trip the circuit breaker, the problem is with the original receptacle or the line that feeds that receptacle and it's circuit breaker.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

How much water should i use


I run mine day and night while home and clean and re-fill it every morning. I also use one of the room odor eliminators in my Rainmate. Fill the water one inch above the line about an inch off the bottom of the water container.

Rainbow rainmate broken.


You can do one of two things: order a new spin wheel from ainbow, or you can go to Lowe's or home Depot and get a product called GOOP. Get Marine Goop if the store has it. Put toe Goop on the edges of the broken parts and let it set a minute and then put the two broken pieces together. Spread a thin layer of GOOP over the crack onto both broken parts and let is set about ten minutes or so while you hold them. set the part down in a way that doesn't throw the parts off kilter and let them dry overnight. Problem should be fixed.

I was just wondering if the fragrances contain oil in them?


You simply remove the spindle and wash it out, and the spin wheel too if ot gets a build up. I use an antiseptic sort of smelling scent in mine and it helps capture dust. That is part of the build uop on the spindle. Simply turn it on the spin wheel and remove it and then wash it under hot water and let the hot water course through the spindle to clean it out.

I just set up my new rainmate in my son's room with the eucalyptus scent (he has a cold/cough), and I needed to know how safe is it to leave the unit running overnight, and how long does it take for the...


Hey im a dealer for Rainbow. RockyNR1 is correct but let me just add that you can fill it to over the line if you want as long as the 'misting' still happens, be careful that the bowl is not near the edge of the surface as the spinning water might make it fall off the side. How long the water lasts is also very dependent on how large the room is that its in. Lastly you should be able to leave it run for 24/7

Rainmate question


Hey im a dealer for Rainbow. RockyNR1 is correct but let me just add that you can fill it to over the line if you want as long as the 'misting' still happens, be careful not to place the machine too close to the edge of whatever it's on as it may fall off. The rainmate can be ran 24/7 (mine does :D)as a side note the only upkeep it should need (other than the water of course) is check the little hole on the bottem of the spinner. if that is ever clogged just punch it though with a toothpick.

Got Rainmate yesterday and either my house is REALLY clean or it isn't working


i had the same problem. The goo pulled from the air gums up the small orifice atthe bottom of the stem that sticks down into the water. If the water cannot be pulled up into the stem and expelled out towards the bowl at high speed, it cannot work. Take the upper, motor half off, unplug it hold the plate with one hand and twist the stem 1/4 turn and it comes right off. Clean the crud (yes, its your own skin cells) and the hole with warm water and soap. put it back together and refill with water and it works like new. this is now monthly maintenance for me
