You are supposed to use the hard surface cleaner solution and mix with water. Vaccum the hard surface first, then dip the hard surface attachement in the mixture (while machine is off. otherwise you will just **** up all the mixture! :) ) turn on the machine and "mop" away!! I love it!!

Hi, there is no reset button on a Rainbow vacuum. There is a safety switch on all E series and E2 series Rainbow vacuums, that keep it from running without the water basin on it.
If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,
Ralph
One other thing, water sucking through your vacuum should not hurt it. It is not good though, but will not make it not run.

Thank you again,
Ralph

Need to replace clips that hold motor to the basin on Rainbow vacuum


There are small brass colored pin going through the latch half way between the upper portion and lower portion, where it is attached to main body of the Rainbow. Take a small nail or dowel put it directly on one end of the brass pin and tap till it comes out. Put the new latch where the old one was and insert the pin till it stops. Then tap slowly so as it pushes though the other side you can line up the hole. When the pin is flush, you are done.

I also needed a manual to answer questions that I had. I finally found after much searching an online website that actually had a manual that you can read and print out. Perhaps it will help you with your questions: Here it is:

It's plugged!

If it happened suddenly, you have a jam somewhere. Unhook the hose to see if it's in the hose or the unit.

If it happened over time then it's likely dirty or full. Wet dirt can accumulate near the blower and inhibit suction. Cleaning the filter is almost always a good idea.

Best to you, Jidza

Need to know how to install rainbow water pan latch and spring latch

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Rainbow E Series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum. The Rainbow latch can be replaced but I believe it is a pop rivet that holds and replaces the old latch and to replace the new latch, I have seen it done but if you don’t have the right tools you may want to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area, it can be done. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Is there suction at the vacuum, without the hose hooked to it? If there is, then your hose may be clogged, if not, it is possible that the corrugated filter may be clogged up. You would have to remove the top to get to it.
