There are no peel-and-stick gaskets for the D4. You have to peel the old one off, then use a waterproof sealant to adhere the new one on.

Remove the 4 screws on the bottom of the canister, and also carefully remove the water basin gasket. You will reattach the gasket with rubber contact cement when you're finished with your repair/cleaning.

SOURCE: D4 Rainbow leaking water around the water basin

Clean the water separator. Use a tooth brush if you do not have the Rainbow separator cleaning brush. It is the same thing, and works perfectly. :-)

Will D4c se plug into D4c


The Rainbow D4, D4C and SE all are the same vacuum base, only changes were made to the nozzle. As long as the nozzle cord on your D4 has 2 prongs, not 3 prongs you can use the D4 nozzle that looks like This or the SE PE (SE Performance) Nozzle that looks This

Why is my rainbow d4c kicking out so much dust?


Do you have the water level set right? Is there an elbow missing inside the tank?

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.

How do you disassemble Rainbow D4c to replace power cord? Took four screws loose but unable to see how to get housing loose...


Gently pull on the rubber gasket that seals the water tank to the canister. Although there are more screws under there - they aren't necessary to remove only to replace your cord. It is the gasket that is holding the motor flange and the plastic housing together that hinders your progress. If you're gentle about pulling off the gasket and it's in good enough shape, you can usually put it back on with some rubber cement (the same thing it is originally attached with) when you're finished. If the gasket breaks, it would have to be replaced - but not a big deal - they aren't really very expensive.

Rainbow vacuum model SE


wow, that motor is one of the most complex in a vacuum and to repair it can be very difficult, if you want to replace it you can but it will be very expensive just for the part. the screws are hidden under that big rubber gasket on the bottom of the machine where the water tank sits. you should also replace that gasket two because it will get ruined when you tear it off.

Take off water tank, remove the screws to separate the top from the bottom, take out the screws inside the top and take out the plastic shell and the switch will be there.

That gasket is a water seal, but it can impact the suction, the top of the water tank can't seal without it.
