Question about Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

2 Answers

Rainbow shampooer The soap dispenser on my Rainbow is not dispensing soap when I flip the switch to 'soap' mode. All connections are intact. All plastic hoses are intact. What do you think is going on? The soap bottle connects to a little straw that appears to be free of obstruction, however, it connects into a sealed casing on the hose.

The little "wash/rinse" switch on some of the Aquamate units shuts off the soap flow by kinking the tube inside the housing. If you leave the switch in the rinse position (therefore, kinked) when you're done using it, it may dry in the kinked position. Taking apart the top part of the handle where all this mechanism is and cleaning out the tube by soaking it in some warm water for a while and reshaping the kinked part before you reassemble it may help solve this problem.

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.

Soap is not dispensing out of the soap dispenser on the bissell


Pour some hot water in the machine and see if the hose is clogged. Is the pump making any noise when you hit the switch like it is trying to pump?

Bissell carpet shampooer wont dispense water


Bad Pump. You pump is where the belt attaches to spin the brushes and also puts water on the floor. Take it to you local Best Buy to be serviced or a local appliance shop which may service it.

Make sure that the brushes on the shampooer tray are spinning, that the belt is resting on the driveshaft. The suction alone will pull up some of the moisture but the brushes should be spinning to gently scrub the carpet and deposit any excess moisture into the tray.

Cleaning Solution leaks out around bottom


Most likely the opening under the seal has cracked or is starting to break away. You will have to replace the water bucket, the soap dispenser come with it, not separately.
