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

Sour odor My rainbow vacuum smells sour. I have cleaned all of the hoses already but am not sure what else to do.


Answers :

You should always put a new hepa filter in any E and E2 series Rainbow vacuum, when it taken to a new home. It will smell like the home that it was in, until you do.

\015\012You can also use fragrances, and deodorizer air freshener in your vacuum, which not only eliminates odors, it add fresh aromas to your air in your home, also.
\015\012
\015\012Replace the hepa filter first thing.
