Question about Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
Posted by Anonymous on
There are numerous reasons. If there was no smoke or burning smell, first try a different outlet. Then you can try wiggling the cord and check cord for damage, if you can get it to start and it turns off again cord is loose or damaged. Try the switch, sometimes switch wears out, if it is not making a click sound or is very loose it may be the switch. The most common reason for an E series to not start after working just fine is a broken actuator on the water basin or missing from the bottom of the vacuum. There is a raised part on the water basin that depresses a little black plastic actuator on the bottom of the vacuum. This is a safety switch to make sure the water basin is there so the vacuum will turn on. You can try pressing in on that and trying to start your vacuum, if it starts you will need to check and see if the part is broken off of your basin or if the little black actuator is missing. You can see pictures here.
