Easy to set up and use at a moment`s notice, the MiniJet harnesses the cleaning power of the Rainbow to shampoo, scrub and remove dirt and stains from smaller carpeted areas and upholstery.
Look for any dirt that could have impeded the suction. If your unit has a rotating brush, remove it to gain better access to the opening. Also, always check the point where the hose and vacuum connect. A loose connection here will compromise the airflow and reduce the suction.
Reconditioned Genuine E series 1 speed Rainbow Vacuum Cleaner with efficient Water and HEPA Filtration Technology. The Rainbow E series 1 speed vacuum is one of the most powerful bagless canister vacuums on the market with an amazing 80 CFM of power!
Vacuum cleaners are fairly simple machines. They need power to be transmitted to the vacuum to create a suction force that lifts debris. So, the usual areas that cause suction loss include the wrong height setting, stuck rollers, a faulty gasket, a broken vacuum belt, a filled bag, or a clogged hose.
The brush roll or its bearings may be clogged with hair, threads or dirt. Make sure they are clean and the roll spins. The belt may also have slipped because it was loose. Check the fit of the new belt when it is installed.
If you follow these basic guidelines, expect your Rainbow to last some 20 to 30 years because it is a very robust machine.
They use them in their firing room and to protect their historic artifacts. The clean room and the elaborate steps taken before entering it are vital to the success of every Hubble mission.
Use no more than one capful of soap in the soap tank, and always fill the remainder of the soap reservoir with clean water. a. Use the Rainbow and Power Nozzle to vacuum the entire area to be cleaned, making sure there is no remaining debris on the surface.
Any of the extractor carpet shampoo will work. The key is, it needs to not suds. I have used both Bissell and Hoover steam vac formulas in my Rainbow before with great success. There is nothing different about the rainbow shampooer than a Hoover.
This unique water filtration system captures typical household dirt, while remaining microscopic particles are caught by our HEPA Neutralizer Filtration System. This two-stage filtration combination removes nearly 100% of dirt and contaminants from your home.

Shampooer will not work on my e2 Rainbow. Help!
ANSWER : Your Rainbow E series has lost suction power, because you need a new hepa filter, or your water basin gasket is messed up, or the center motor gasket is messed up or out of position.

Make sure your water basin is not cracked or broken, also.
.If it is an earlier model, everything applies, except for the filter. They do not have filters, on any of the earlier models.

ANSWER : Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn’t squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole, this is for the soap bottle also, there is a seal on the bottom of it as well. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix knob. Pump is bad. Try running a mix of vinegar and water to see if that unclogs the lines. Is the top cover and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the top breaks loose and it will raise up and it can’t spray, just re-fasten it down.

ANSWER :

Make sure the bowl has the pin on it. The Vacuum has switch in the bottom that keeps the Vacuum from running if the bowl in not on or the little pin is broken off.

I bought my rainbow se vacum 4 years ago and I was using it and suddendly stoped working, I try to on no power I on and off not working at all. what shall i do is there posibility to work again.pls.help and tell me what is the best to do. thank you.
ANSWER : Hi, there is no reset button on a Rainbow vacuum.

.. All SE series vacuums have a built in thermal and load fuse on the motor, and if it blew, it has to be replaced, or wired directly, with out it on there..
Motor brushes are usually the source of a non working Rainbow D4 and SE and all model Rainbow vacuums and when they burn out, they usually take the motor armature with them, from excessive heat and flare electrical arking to the armature.. .It is probably the thermal and load fuse, that is your problem, if you did not smell any electric burning type of smell, before it quit. It could be the power switch, but not as likely as the fuse.. .If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.
