"New" Rainbow Eseries flashing red light

I noticed a red flashing light inside the vacuum right under the on/off/purify control - it looks like a filter. The light only flashes red when the vacuum is on and on purifier mode.

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.

I have a sebo x4 , when I switch it on the red lights flick on and off and nothing happenes


The red lights should flash very quickly upon vacuum start-up (normal). If the motor is not turning on there is likely a problem with the motor or power supply board. The lights flashing does indicate that you are getting power to the PC control board. If your vacuum is under warranty, this would likely be covered. I have included a link to the parts list for your reference. http://sebo.us/pdfs/website_schematicsPDFs/AUTOMATIC%20X%20Schematics.pdf

Armature and rainbow vacuum


The armature for the E-2 (eSERIES) model Rainbow is not available by itself. You have to purchase the Motor Rainbow 120v.
Now the new design motors are steps above the original motors so you should see improved performance as well as durability.

When I turn on my dyson animal vacuum the red light flashes on and off and there is no suction


I think you have a blocked pipe somewhere. I use a large marble to drop through the pipes to see where the problem is.

Rainbow vacuum won't power on.


Do you have it on the water pan? All models above the eSERIES will not run without the water pan.

Flashing lights.


The Flashing lights indicate several different things. 1 flashing red light means its time to charge your unit. if it is still flashing after charging then you will more than likely need to change the battery. A flashing red and green light means that the unit is overheating which could happen if the filters need to be washed, or that there is a blockage or if your machine has been left in direct sunlight. Allow 1 hour for machine to cool down. 3 flashing lights indicated that the pre-filter has been put on incorrectly. I hope this helps. If you do decide to wash your filter dont use any type of soap it is not needed and allow fiter to dry for atleast 24 hours. putting a wet or damp filter in will damage your machine.

Nikken Air Purifier, Model NKAP100: Change Filter red indicator stays lit after new filter has been installed


Under the front panel, under and to the right of the control panel is two holes, one the size of a pencil eraser and below it is one the size of a dime. In the hole (the size of a dime), is a pin hole use a paperclip and poke the hole. It will reset the filter light. We had the same problem, and couldn't find the manual. Our Nikken rep was No help either.

Hi, My Electrolux twin clean vacuum has both red and blue lights flashing and I can not get it to turn on to clean the filters. Any suggestions


Try taking the twin filters outside - also take a dustpan brush and tap the filters gently on the bottom, then brush the dust away as it comes out. This can take quite some time, and you will find that LOTS of compacted dust will come out!
