<p>Yes, the early version eSERIES on the <a rel='nofollow' href="">Cap Cover Assembly</a> was a disc that was glued into place. You can order the new design that is one complete piece so this problem will never happen again.</p>

Rainbow turns on for a second or two then quits and won't turn back on.

If you have the model Rainbow E-2 eSERIES then the Motor Rainbow 120v could be going bad. This will trip the auto reset until it cools down.
If you have an E2 Type 12 Rainbow, then the Controller Asm 120v e2 Silver Gold could be going bad.

Looking for replacement component for motor controller board, a capacitor that is in series with the AC input line.

Unfortunately Rainbow does not offer this part by itself, they only make the computer as a complete assembly. Rainbow E2 controller 120v You can try contacting local vacuum shops and see if they have any broken Rainbows with good controllers that they would be willing to sell only that part to you.

Rainbow filter spraying water just changed filter?

If your Separator is broken, then this will allow water to go up through the motor and out the exhaust. The HEPA Filter Neutralizer 2nd Edition for eSERIES is at the end of the air bath of exhaust so this will be soaked with water. If that does not fix, call us with your Rainbow in front of you for some troubleshooting... Contact Us

Fins are broken on gear above water canister Can it be fixed and what caused it to break?

This part is called the separator and it can break from a possible hard item getting picked up and hitting it. Do not run if any fins are broken out as this will allow the Rainbow to drawl water up into the motor and out the exhaust. The purpose of the separator is to throw the water back into the water pan and allow clean air to go through the motor and out the exhaust.

Your new rainbow is still under warranty I believe so explain it to the company and ask for another. I too had a rainbow however I am like your friend in which mine worked very well. The noise is coming from the motor housing or the motor itself. Good Luck

I have a Rainbow E2 which I purchased in early October. My Power Nozzle is not working right. When I used it before, it pulled, now it barely moves on its own. I cleaned all the hair off of it and it...

Does the brush turn freely when you try to manually turn it?
Does it rotate when the power nozzle motor is on?
If not, it's most likely the belt that turnd the brush has broken. This will result in the brush not rotating, which in turn doesn't provide the pulling action and ease of use it's supposed to have.
If it's a new machine, you need to take it to the nearest Rainbow store for warranty repair. Disassembling yourself will result in the warranty being voided.
