Rainbow e series smells burnt when power nozzle in use

When I use the power nozzle the unit smells like it is burning then shuts off on its own. When I use the regular nozzle it does fine. I have cleaned the unit and filter. Any suggestions?

Replace the belt in the power nozzle, it has to be changed yearly.

    Actually it sounds as if the motor can't handle the extra amps of the nozzle, and unfortunately that means new motor.

Why won't my Rainbow E Series won't turn on?


It sounds like your motor is probably dead.
You would need a new motor if the Rainbow is getting power and the power nozzle works.

The rainbow sat for too long on the water now wont run


So depending on how long, you may have rusted out the bearings in your motor, especially if it sat so long as to eat the glue off of your gasket.
Sounds like you may need a new motor, gasket, baffle plate and separator.

Burning smell


The response by Lynnette is in reference to the power nozzle....if you are having this issue with the main unit, then it could be the armature is starting to go bad. Have your Rainbow in front of you and give us a call. We can walk you through some steps to narrow it down.

Rainbow E Series Power Nozzle I'm not sure which part of it is not working?


<p>The power nozzle brush roll bearings could be locking up from hair and debris wrapped around them. If that is the case, then the brush roll will be hard to turn and will cause the belt to heat up and give a burning smell. If you need to speak to a Rainbow Specialist, give us a call.</p>

Rainbow Vacuum smells like something is burning.


Your belt is worn and that is why there is a burnt rubber smell. You need to change your belt. You can find a replacement belt and instructions here:

Rainbow E series


The belt looses it tensile strength (tightness) over time. But it's the part about funny sounds and shutting down that concerns me. If it smells like a tire fire then it's the belt if it smells like plastic and burned hair then the motor has a bad field or armature. Probably one of the carbon brushes got hung up and burned a segment in the armature.

Burning Smell


Check the carbon motor brushes, there might be arcing on the armature. New brushes may help if the armature is ok.
