Question about Rainbow Vacuums
Try changing the water before you turn it on the first time -- that will probably help you resolve the issue. It seems like there is probably some sort of soap or carpet shampoo in the system causing your foam issue. If your carpets have been shampooed or if you have spilled soap or detergent on your carpet at any point, the vacuum is probably picking up remnants of the soap when you are cleaning, and it is working its way into the water supply of the vacuum. This will continue to happen until you have completely removed the soap from your carpet -- and if you haven't cleaned out your vacuum very well. Try rinsing out the hoses and water tank really well, to make sure that the soap is not stuck in the vacuum itself and give it a try. Hopefully just rinsing out the machine will fix the problem.
