SOURCE: Problem with E series rainbow, motor starts then slows down to a halt and smells.

From what you describe, you will probably have to replace the motor. But you could take it apart and see if it just needs carbon brushes.

Chances are the motor died or went bad.
You would have to get a new motor.
You can find one here:

Or a more cost effective refurbished D4 motor unit here:

How to install carbon brush


You have to open the case. First remove the transparent plastic on the side then you will see screws on the bottom part of the transparent plastic. Unscrew them and from there you will open the machine. Remove the rexair cover and unscrew the screw that attaches to the 2 carbon brush. When you remove the carbon brush you will see a spring and the copper wire at the end of the brush. remove it and put the new copper wire from the new carbon brush to the contact passing thru the middle of the spring. Then screw it back tightly.

The belt looses it tensile strength (tightness) over time. But it's the part about funny sounds and shutting down that concerns me. If it smells like a tire fire then it's the belt if it smells like plastic and burned hair then the motor has a bad field or armature. Probably one of the carbon brushes got hung up and burned a segment in the armature.

Does the separator turn easily by hand? If it does, may be there is a problem with the carbon brushes. If this model is one that has the computor board mounted on top of the motor, there may be a problem with it.

Burning Smell


Check the carbon motor brushes, there might be arcing on the armature. New brushes may help if the armature is ok.

A problem.


Sounds like the carbon brushes. If they are sparkng, then either they are bad or the armature is bad, possibly both.
