Buy a new one on ebay. If not, you use water only. The cover either snaps off with two clips on the bottom, or there are two screws at the bottom of the cover, and two at the top of the cover, underneath the black power cord holder slide in and out clips assembly, which snaps off. Let it thoroughly dry before reinstalling it. It may take Days. Put it out in the hot sun. That helps a lot. If you install it wet and run your vacuum, while it is still wet, the pressure will tear it up.
Let me know if you have any more questions.

Why does (it) have very poor suction?


The filter can be clogged but look clean. Most models have two filters. Replace them both every few years.

I just ran my rainbow e series accidentally without the separator. What should I do?


Your Rainbow should be o.k if you completely dried it out. But rinsing the hepa filter has usually not worked out well for most people (soory for that news) but good news is that they should last around 8 to 10 years with no rinsing.

What happens when i run my rainbow vacuume without water ?


The Rainbow must have water as this is the only way it filters the dirt before the motor. If you don't use water, all the dirt will go through the motor and could create serious issues. We have a cleaning service that will clean your Rainbow inside and out making it like new. Call us for details.

My rainbow e-series canister vacuum cleaner has a horrible smell. i cleaned out the water tray and it STILL smells horrible. how do i fix this problem?


Get a new hepa filter.

It is at the back side of it, behind that rectangular cover, where the exhaust cover is. It either snaps off with two plastic tabs on the bottom of it, or has two screws on the bottom of it, and two screws behind the cord holder taps thing. If it is that kind, the cord holder tabs thing, snaps off with a flat head screw driver on either side of it. You will see the little slots on it, if it is the kind with the screws on the filter cover. Two screws behind the cord holder tabs thing, towards the top of the filter cover, and two on the bottom of the filter cover.

Always clean your water separator with a tooth brush, or Rainbow separator cleaning brush. If it has it, it is by the water separator in a special slot for it, rite there by the water separator. If not, use a tooth brush. They are just alike. The separator nut, is a half inch, or 13 milimeter size of a nut.

Thank you,

Sour odor


You should always put a new hepa filter in any E and E2 series Rainbow vacuum, when it taken to a new home. It will smell like the home that it was in, until you do.

You can also use fragrances, and deodorizer air freshener in your vacuum, which not only eliminates odors, it add fresh aromas to your air in your home, also.

Replace the hepa filter first thing.

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

Thank you,

Whenever i turn on my rainbow, it smells like dirty feet. i have cleaned the canitster, but it still smells and its coming from what looks like the plastic filter maybe?


there is a hepa filter on the back of unit, if you remove and than run the machine you can find out if that is where it is coming from. Most likely is.

Water leaking from out of the heppa filter


Reasons for that to happen:
a) You have tilted the vac while vacuuming
b) Used the Rainbow without separator (basket like thing on the bottom of the motor)
c) Overfilled the rainbow tank with water (may have happened when shampooing with AquaMate)

Clean and install back the separator, remove HEPA, Set the Rainbow on empty water pan (with HEPA removed) turn it on for a while so everything will dry. Install new HEPA.

You will have to get a new HEPA filter (you can find them HERE)

Good Luck,
Rocky

Cleaning the filter on a e series rainbow vacuum
Posted by jonesjpc on Jul 06, 2008
This one does not have the tabs to depress as but has two screws in that area still doesn’t see how to get to the filter. Also I need instructions to replace power cord; On the E series single speed.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. On the Rainbow E Series there really is no actual filter – the water is the filter for this particular vacuum. Before you remove the separator under the motor, place a newspaper or towel under the Rainbow without the water pan under the vacuum and then turn it on for a short period of time and spin the water moisture out of the motor and separator; then some of the maintenance is to remove the separator under the motor and clean that and then replace it. As far as replacing the cord there are screws under the Rainbow that need removal and then you can get to the end of the cord for replacement. The easiest way is to mark your wires and the cord will be much easier to replace otherwise check the owner’s manual for cord replacement or check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to cal the cust serv @ the Rainbow factory for questions.

Changing the filter in Rainbow e series


Some of the e-series has a corrugated filter in the top section. To get to it, remove the clear plastic panels that are the sides. Most have 3 screws on each side to move, then the top half will come loose. There also is filter on the back, there is a door to remove to get to it.
