Crimp the ends a little closer together with radio pliers. Not too tight that they restrict movement but just enough to take up any slack. If the rods are still loose or too long, try to crimp a little kink in the middle to shorten the rod.
The wire schematics in the handle assembly has four total wires. Two from the hose and two from the Receptacle Nozzle. Take one wire from the hose and one wire from the receptacle and connect together. Take the second wire from the hose and connect to the Switch Handle PN2E PN2. Take the second wire from the receptacle and connect to the other switch terminal. If you need more details, you can download the schematics at Rainbow Vacuum Schematics or you can call us at 800-523-0510.
Are the wires still bundled or loose? If bundled, there are 3 connections to the motor and they make an L shape (sort of). place the motor in front of you so that 2 connectors are on the left and the last is at bottom right. The thermocoupler attaches to the bottom right, usually black or orange wire with the metal device on it. The upper left is usually a 2 white wires clipped together from the power cord and the short junction to the light bulb. The lower left is for connecting the short wire for the bulb to the black wires in the light bulb harness. Just go counter clockwise: Power, light, thermocoupler and you should be in good shape.
Sounds like the wire that came loose is still making contact, but only when you move it around. If you can, take the earpiece apart and you will find a red or black wire shielded by braided wire. Cut the wire back some and resolder in place.
Hi the problem you are more than likely having is with the wires that go into the vacume they are not that secure and do work loose.
now if you remove the cylinder that you empty, now you see where the wire goes into the back of the vac, well if you look at the front of the vac in the same place the wires go into the vac you will see a little inspection panel held on with star shaped screws. you need to undo this to get to the wires
once undone you will see how the wires are secured into the vac you need to undo the connectors screws that secure the wire and remove the mains wire from the vac now cut about 5 inches off the wire and then peel the outer cable back and cut it back so the two inner wires stick out as much as they used to, then refit the wires in the vac and close it all back up
dont do this with it plugged in as you will give yourself a shock.
when its back together check the fuse in the plug it may need changing due to the short its best if you change it anyway, then switch the vac on and see if it works
give me a shout back if it dont.
please dont mess with it if you are unsure what you are doing as you could cause harm to you and others if you dont put it back together properly let me know how you get on ok
Hi, You will need to cut away the outer rubber insulation. Be careful not to cut the insulation on the 3 separate wires. Then you will need to remove about three fourths of a inch of insulation from each of the three wires. If you can solder, then solder the black to black, green to green , white to white. Then Tape with electrical tape each wire separately. Do a good job of taping. If you cannot solder, then go to a hardware store a buy # Wire Nuts. Take the loose end of the cord with you so as to get the right size of Wire Nut. The wire Nut repair is bulky , but secure. You are using a lot of Amps with the Steamer so you want a good job, lest the repair gets hot. Either repair I mentioned will work safely and well. Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!
In the centre of each wheel there is a different colour plug. This must be removed before the wheel can be pulled off. I used a small screwdriver to prise it out. You will probably damage the plug in removing it but they are easily available online as a replacement. You will then see two screws holding the case together. You need to undo both sides plus the screw on the top.
(If you think you may have a loose connection, then it could be the motor brushes have worn out and need replacing)
The rattling sound is permanent and is supposed to alert the owner that the drive belt/clutch has come undone. Sadly it also means an official repair as the Animal has a protected belt that can't be repaired by the owner.
