Question about Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
I checked the seal from the water basin and it is tight. For some reason I'm not getting any water from the basin into the hose. I can't see how to take the white water basin apart to see if it is clogged. The only access to it is through the small hole in which to fill it.
Thanks for everything.
If you have the Rainbow e series, then this manual will explain exactly how to remove the separator from the wash basin and the basin from the caddy. (Please refer to page 6)
http://www.rainbowsystem.com/pdf/manuals/rainbow_eseries/eseries.pdf A special tool is stored on the underside of the power unit next to the separator , which you can use to loosen the brass nut holding the separator.
The manual also provides instructions on how to remove the basin and clean it.
In my opinion, it is most likely a blockage in the tubes that must be causing this problem. This seems to be a common issue with this cleaner. There is also a small metal ring between the separator and basin that may be dislodged and causing this problem. Please the manual for an idea of what I am talking about.
