My Rainbow E series power switch doesn't work

Hi, I am having problems with my rainbow, and I am living in a country where there's not technical support. My Rainbow machine is having problems with the power switch. I ask my husband to take a look, but we don't know how to open the machine. Can you explain that to me? Thanx.

To get access you need to remove the plastic side cover panels. To remove these, I found the easiest way was to use a small flat screw driver, leverage it under the pastic in the centre at the 'cord end' and lift carefully. There are two lugs at the top and one at the bottom. The plastic panel will 'bow' a little, but with care, it will pop off. The gold looking vents underneath are just a 'facade'. By removing the side plastic panels they will expose three screws either side. Undo these and the top will half of the cleaner will lift off. Good luck!

My rainbow was working, now the rug cleaner quit.


Does your power nozzle have a red power light? Your Circuit Breaker PN2E PN2 could be defective. Also check the hose connection to the front of the Rainbow. Be sure that it has both latches secure. This can cause power nozzle to not run.

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.

Hi, there is no reset button on a Rainbow vacuum. There is a safety switch on all E series and E2 series Rainbow vacuums, that keep it from running without the water basin on it.

I think the switch on the Rainbow E-series electric hose went bad. Is there an easy vway to verify it's the switch?


Hi, the only way, is to test that it has power at the swirch with a circuit tester or voltage meeter, or test the plug on the handle where you attach your power head power cord, or Rainbowmate power cord to.
If it does not get power there, then test that the switch is getting power.

Hi, there is no reset button on a Rainbow vacuum.

All SE series vacuums have a built in thermal and load fuse on the motor, and if it blew, it has to be replaced, or wired directly, with out it on there.
Motor brushes are usually the source of a non working Rainbow D4 and SE and all model Rainbow vacuums and when they burn out, they usually take the motor armature with them, from excessive heat and flare electrical arking to the armature. It is probably the thermal and load fuse, that is your problem, if you did not smell any electric burning type of smell, before it quit. It could be the power switch, but not as likely as the fuse. If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,
