Rainbow water not spinning

\015 When i on the machine, the sound is not as loud as usual, then i realise the water is not spinning. suction seems to be ok, it still pick up hair, but water is not spinning to cleanse it. :( i pressed reset button, wash the separator, didn't help. any idea? thanks in advance!\015

Answers :

All Rainbows - remove the hose and turn it on without the hose plugged in - if works better - hose is clogged

If it works bad even with the hose out:
E-series Rainbow - take HEPA filter cartridge and try then. If helps - you need new HEPA (you can get it here)

SE Rainbow vacuums - remove exhaust cap

and you may find a dirty sponge in there - just remove it and it may help.

If none of that made any difference - you may need it to be checked. If you do not mind shipping - our info is HERE

Water is not being discharged. I have filled the reservoir that holds the carpet cleaner fluid And I have filled the water container. I know how to use the cleaner, it has always worked, But now, no water is being discharged to the carpet. I turn it on, squeeze the trigger, but nothing comes out. The wheel that is suppose to spin (to indicate that water is being discharged) is not spinning. Everything else works. I.e. the suction works, and the hand held accessories work.

My kids were in charge of the Rainbow, but they moved out. My husband surprised me by cleaning a dirty rug. Neither of us know how to use the Rainbow, but I at least know that you're supposed to use water. Will it damage my Rainbow that he did not use any water when he vacuumed?

My Rainbow SE vacuum was working fine until I ran over the edge of a rug and it went in to the nozzle. I immediately switched the vacuum off and proceeded to move the rug. When I tried to turn the Rainbow back on the brush was no longer spinning. I've tried the reset button and checking the nozzle for any debris, there are none. The brush just won't spin.

Need instructions how to use Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub. I borrowed it from my Sister and she left it with no instruction book or letting me know how to operate it.
