How to Clean a Water Based Air Purifier

In this video, Kyle teaches us how to easily clean almost any water-based air purifier!

 

Important Safety Tips

  • Always make sure your machine is unplugged and the power button is turned off, before servicing your machine.
  • Always make sure your hands are dry and free from moisture before servicing your machine.
  • Be sure to wear gloves when servicing your machine to prevent any cuts or scrapes.
  • If you are uncomfortable working on your machine, please don’t hesitate to contact us at service@greatvacs.com and we can help you through the process or you can send it into us to fix it for you. 

 

Instructions

 

For our demonstration, we’ll be using a Prolux water-based air purifier.

 

As you can see, the bowl has a lot of hard water on the inside.

 

We’re going to submerge the bowl in a bucket of hot water. If you’re at home you can use a sink.

 

Once it is completely submerged you’re going to add a cup of distilled white vinegar and let it soak for 30 minutes.

 

After 30 minutes you can remove the bowl and wipe it down. You can rinse it with water if you’d like, but it’s not necessary. It should look pretty much brand new!

 

Here’s another trick to cleaning not only the bowl, but the underside of the motor. Fill the bowl to the fill line with a mix of warm water and vinegar. The put the top portion back on.

 

Then plug it in and let it run for about 12 hours. Then, just empty the water bowl and wipe everything down!

How To Clean A Water Separator On A Rainbow Vacuum Cleaner

Have you cleaned the water separator on your Rainbow Vacuum? Do you know how? We get asked this question a lot! Here’s a quick video that shows you how simple this routine maintenance is!

 

Important Safety Tips

  • Always make sure your machine is unplugged and the power button is turned off, before servicing your vacuum.
  • Always make sure your hands are dry and free from moisture before servicing your machine.
  • Be sure to wear gloves when servicing your machine to prevent any cuts or scrapes.
  • If you are uncomfortable working on your vacuum, please don’t hesitate to contact us at service@greatvacs.com and we can help you through the process or you can send it into us to fix it for you. 

 

Instructions

 

Unscrew the brass nut at the very bottom.

 

Now you can remove the water separator! You can take it over to the sink, grab a brush, and scrub all the nooks and crannies to get the dirt out. You can get by doing this about 2-3 times per year.

 

Wait, are you having trouble getting that nut off? Sometimes, after a while, it gets a bit stuck on there and you can’t remove it with just your fingers. If this is the case you’ll need to hold the water separator firmly with one hand and use a wrench or a flathead screwdriver to loosen the nut.

 

Once you have it apart go ahead and clean up the threads as well. You can use a little WD-40 when replacing the nut so that it will come off easier next time.

 

On occasion, when people are replacing the nut, it stops and they assume it’s tightened all the way. If the water separator can spin freely while the nut is held in place, then the nut has not been tightened enough! You want the water separator AND the nut to have to spin together. You also want to be careful not to over-tighten, as this can bind up the motor.
