Question about Rainbow Vacuums
Where is the water coming out? If it's coming through an exhaust port, then it's gone through the motor, which will ruin the motor. If the motor does still run, stop using immediately and take it to a repair shop for thorough drying and possible cleaning. This must be done immediately to prevent rusting. It may already be too late, and a new motor will be necessary.

Remove hose and turn on the unit with nothing on the intake - see if it helps - feel the suction with hand.
a) If it works fine without the hose - look for a clog in the hose, wand or the nozzle
b) If the suction is weak even without the hose:
Clean the separator,
If this is e-series or E2 Rainbow - remove HEPA and try vacuuming without it (sometimes it is too dirty so stops good airflow). New HEPAs HERE.
If this is SE Rainbow - remove exhaust cap and if there is a sponge - take it out
Still no luck - It has to be serviced
