Having problems with your Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

I have my vacuum set to shampoo a rug, but cannot get the water to come out

Answers :

Sometimes it takes up to 10 or so minutes for the Aqua mate 2 to begin pumping out anything.

If it is the new Aqua mate 12 (the big blue one, that is like a giant power head) the same thing is true for it.
\015\012If it is an earlier model Aquamate, then it is clogged somewhere in the hose, or the fluid control valve is clogged.

The water separator is the thing that spins in the center of the motor where your water basin attaches to it. It looks like a cone shaped fan looking thing. It should be cleaned after every use.

Use your Rainbow separator cleaning brush, or a tooth brush, if you do not have the Rainbow one. They are just like tooth brushes.

Never store your Rainbow canister on your water basin, with or without water in it. It can and will ruin your vacuum in dew time.

My Kirby shampooer - G4 - hardly used any water from the tank and no suds at all. Pet hair did blow out of the small slotted holes in the tray as I moved the shampooer back and forth, but the carpet was basically dry. I did vacuum before shampooing, so the brush part seemed to work great during shampooing, but no water! The small screen was stuck in the crook of the hose that attached to the tank so I did get that out and put it on the small hole on the tank, but it didn't make any difference. I
