Question about Rainbow 75th Anniversary Canister Vacuum

Rainbow vac ESeries brush stopped spinning

The rolling brush stopped spinning when the vacuum is on. I removed the cover to ensure the belt was still on; it was. Nothing moves at all even though the vacuum is on and the button is pressed. Any suggestions? I hate bringing it in as they charge an arm and a leg to repair.

    What button - trigger on the hose or red reset button on the nozzle?
    Does the red light on the nozzle come on when the trigger is pressed?

    (new E2 rainbow units have no button or light on the nozzle)

If you have tried to press the red button on the top of power nozzle and it is still not working, try opening the bottom to see about loose wire, check receptacle that plugs into rainbow, if neither of those are the problem than it may be you need a new motor. Should not really be an arm and a leg.

How do I replace the belt for this model


Make sure vacuum is not plugged in to power outlet. Lay it upside down and remove 4 screws from bottom plate covering brush roll. Remove bottom plate and pull the brush roll out. Clean hair and debris from brush roll and make sure it spins freely. Remove end caps from brush roll if possible and clean debris out. Install new belt around motor shaft then insert brush roll into belt and pull on brush roll to give you enough leverage to stretch belt far enough to put. Brush roll back into position. Reinstall bottom plate and screws. Make sure brush roll will turn before turning vacuum back on. Belt will lose elasticity and should be replaced twice a year.

The belt on the power nozzle is so tight that it is not turning and the power nozzle won't turn on when you press the handle


Possible bearing in the motor or brush roll is locked up. Check to see if the light comes on. If it does not, then you have an electrical problem but that is a separate problem from the belt being tight. Let us know if you need service....www.rainvac.com

Changing the belt


Always make sure your machine is unplugged from the outlet before replacing the belt.
Newer Oreck uprights have an access plate on the right hand side of the base (as you're looking at it from the front). Remove the one screw from the access plate and slide it forward. Snake the new belt around the brush roll pulley and then strrrrrrretch it back to the motor shaft. Replace the access plate.
If your model does not have an access plate; turn the machine upside down, Remove all screws. Lift the bottom plate off. Observe the position of the brush roll ends, One side of each end cap will have several notches cut into it,this is the 'new' side, the other side is smooth, this is the 'old' side. You can reposition the brush roll the the 'old' side if your bristles appear worn down.
With the brush roll still removed; place one end of the belt over the motor shaft first, place the other side of the belt around the brush roll pulley and stretch the brush roll forward until it is back in place.
Spin the brush roll by hand before replacing the cover to ensure the belt is not pinched.
Replace to cover.

Take off the noozle, take off the bottom plate and remove the brush roll and old belt. Check the brush roll while you have it off to make sure the end spin freely. Put the belt on the brus roll and re-install in the noozle, put on the bottom plate. Then turn the big knob on the front of the nozzle all the way, you can only turn it so that the belt catches and will stretch, it will stop when you are all of the way, then re-install the nozzle back onto the Vac, turn that knob back the other way and you are all done.

Brush is not rotating.


Turn the vac over, remove the access plate, covering the brush roll, 2 to 4 screws. Brush roll part number is 2032032if you need it, belt is a Bissell Style 7. While you have the brush roll off, check in dirt inlet to see if it is clogged, also check the hose to see if it is clogged. You won't feel suction at the bag tube, it has to have a bag on it and the lid closed before it will create suction.

Turn the vac over, remove the screws holding the plate covering the brush roll and belt. Belt goes from the brush roll to the motor shaft or pulley.

Rainbow SE power nozzle


If the brush is spinning ok, and the belt isn't slipping, then probably the circuit breaker is bad, or the motor is causing the problem.
