Are youreferring to the air intake filter? If so.. once the cover is removed ..you can try a little veg oil to loosen it...
or.. are you taking about the blower wheel? The nut to release them often sticks and can be loosened with pentrating oil ( like WD-40)

Why does the thermal protection keep shutting the vacuum off?


Hi! It appears your thermal protector sensor has kicked in and caused your cleaner to power off. This is usually due to a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Try these steps to get your vacuum back up & running!

1. Remove the dirt cup canister from the vacuum. Remove the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Clean the filter as suggested by the owner's manual.
3. Slide the Hepa filter out. Tap the filter against the trash can until dirt stops falling. Replace the Hepa filter. (Do not wash) Filters should be replaced once a year.
4. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
5. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose.

Your vacuum should turn back on after it cools off, this can take up to an hour. Hope this helps!

MY RAINBOW VACUUM HAS LOST SUCTION POWER AND i DON'T KNOW WHY


Your Rainbow E series has lost suction power, because you need a new hepa filter, ot your water basin gasket is messed up, or the center motor gasket is messed up or out of position.

Make sure your water basin is not cracked or broken, also.

If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,
Ralph

How do you wire in new switch on rainbow vacuum cleaner. Model D3B


Hello. I am sorry but, if you don't already have the knowledge to do this, I would strongly reccomend you do not attempt it. Rainbows have a large wiring harness. Here's the main reason: Rainbow vacuums are designed to work with a water filter. If you wire the vacuum wrong, or, if one of the connections come loose, it could mean a possible injury to yourself or damage to the unit, which I know you paid good money for. This repair should only be handled by a qualified vacuum service tech. Thank you.

How to remove an old Rainbow E Series Cooling Filter


The motor filter is under the top cover.
Caution: Be sure your vacuum is unplugged from the electrical outlet before proceeding! There are 2 screws on each side of the top cover of the Rainbow ‘E’ series vacuum cleaners located behind the decals. To get to the screws; use a non-scratching tool such as a plastic putty knife and pry out a corner of the plastic window, carefully pull out the plastic window and decal and remove the 2 screws. Repeat this process for both windows and then just lift up the top cover to expose the inside.

Hi: I took my unit apart to clean it. I was careful to put it back exactly as I took it apart. Now it won't start. I also need a new filter. I rinsed it out but it still stinks.
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best way is to check your owner’s manual to see the trouble shooting guide of which may help you. It could be a loose wire; or the separator could be on too tight, I am going to give you the Rainbow / RexAir Factory phone # so that you can check with cust serv or their serv tech support. Feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area also.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

I don't know how to take apart me Rainbow e2 series vac.


I recently took mine apart because the motor stopped working. Realized the brushes were pretty well worn down and one side was completely gone. I was looking on the internet for detailed instructions on how to take it apart. I ended up just ripping it apart with no problems but made a tutorial to help you guys out. Here's a link to it

http://www.vacuumcleanerforum.com/f20/21715-how-take-your-rainbow-vaccum-apart.html

This is for the e-series vaccum, not the e2 but they pretty much have the same design and same motor (e2 has a 2 stage motor).

Let me know if you have any questions

Cleaning the filter on a e series rainbow vacuum
Posted by jonesjpc on Jul 06, 2008
This one does not have the tabs to depress as but has two screws in that area still doesn’t see how to get to the filter. Also I need instructions to replace power cord; On the E series single speed.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. On the Rainbow E Series there really is no actual filter – the water is the filter for this particular vacuum. Before you remove the separator under the motor, place a newspaper or towel under the Rainbow without the water pan under the vacuum and then turn it on for a short period of time and spin the water moisture out of the motor and separator; then some of the maintenance is to remove the separator under the motor and clean that and then replace it. As far as replacing the cord there are screws under the Rainbow that need removal and then you can get to the end of the cord for replacement. The easiest way is to mark your wires and the cord will be much easier to replace otherwise check the owner’s manual for cord replacement or check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to cal the cust serv @ the Rainbow factory for questions.

Changing the filter in Rainbow e series


Some of the e-series has a corrugated filter in the top section. To get to it, remove the clear plastic panels that are the sides. Most have 3 screws on each side to move, then the top half will come loose. There also is filter on the back, there is a door to remove to get to it.
