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

Rainbow shotting water out

\015 Is there a way I can get into this vacuum so I can see why it is shooting water out? I cannot remove the aerator peice inside that says it should be cleaner after each use. The screw seems frozen, I removed the 3 screws from the bottom and can't seem to see what is holding it together- can't get the bottom off. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

My 4 year old tipped my e series on its side while it was turned off and had water in it, and now it is shooting water from the back filter. I bought a new filter, but it hasn't gotten here yet. I am affraid to turn it on even when I get the filter because there might be water in the motor. The seperater is not cracked and seems to be fine, so is it possible for the water to get to the motor by tipping it over? If so is there a way to remove the water.

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?

Our problem with our Rainbow E Series is that it has sucked water up and blown it out through the lower part of the hepa filter, making the filter wet and dirty. This had happened before and the repair shop did not see any problems with the machine, so we replaced the filter and were very carful not to overfill the tank and to change the water often. Now it has happened again and ruined another filter. Do you know what could be causing this issue? Can the filter be cleaned or will a new one be
