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

Rainbow e2 system. Will not power up

\015 I have a e2 Rainbow system. It's been sitting in the garage for a couple years and I pulled it out today and tried to run it and nothing happens/ no power/ nothing. The water basin is missing. Will this prevent it from starting or is there a reset button or is there something more seriously wrong? I do not want to order a replacement water container if the problem is deeper than this.\015

Answers :

The water basin has a safety on it so the unit cannot run without it. if you look on the bottom of the rainbow you can see a small oval shaped space that you can depress just to test and see if it still runs it will only run with this depressed.
The Rainbow will not run with out the water basin.
