If it is the one with the big white water supply tank, it needs to soak with water in it for a few Days, then it may take a little bit of running,(10 minutes at the most, at a time, then let it cool, for 30 minutes in between attempts) while you are spraying water out. Make sure the soap control is on the soap bar with suds around it, and not the soap bar that is crossed out. If it is spraying water, you can keep running it. The 10 minute limit, is only if it is not spraying anything.

If it is an earlier one, it has a clogged soap pick up tube, or the soap control cap thing on the end of it.

If it is the latest big blue one, it never will probably work again. All of them must be flushed out after usage before storage, and the new one must have both, the soap and the water passages on the unit sucked out by the Rainbow vacuum, before it is stored. I have never got one of them to work again, once that it was clogged up, from not being cleared out, like it is supposed to be before storage of it.

If you need more help, let me know,
Ralph

Where do I get an adapter for my rainbow shampooer


This really depends on what Rainbow you have and which Aquamate you are using. There really is not an adapter for the Aquamate. The newest aquamate out there is for the E2 type 12 black that came out in 2012.

There is a modification of this aquamate to fit older E series vacuums (comes with a cord) , but you will need to have an electrified hose made for water pick up to use. You can find that aquamate here

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) .

Don't know how to use carpet shampooer


You should have the new aquamate, it has a blue top to fill with the water and water/soap solution that pops down into place. You will need to use your power nozzle hose and tube, connect it to your shampooer (make sure to connect the power connection just like the power nozzle). Fill your water up, large compartment is for cold water only and the smaller compartment is for one cap full of soap then the rest filled with cold water. Start with just a splash of water or an empty basin in the rainbow. The trigger will control your water spray and the brush underneath. There are two levers on the back of the shampooer marked with a shower head and a bar of soap. Use the soap with the shower head and the soap on and the water only with just the shower head on. You will want to also go over the area shampooed with both off to **** up the remaining water. Make sure to clean your floor thoroughly before shampooing.

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.
