Either your cord broke inside or the connections on the motor have come loose or your motor has fried.

Vacuum has power but wont run


From your question it sounds like the Rainbow will not run on high speed. Very good chance the Controller Asm 120v e2 Silver Gold is bad. Call us when you are able as we can replace at a discounted price if your machine meets the requirements. Contact Us

Why won't my Rainbow E Series won't turn on?


It sounds like your motor is probably dead.
You would need a new motor if the Rainbow is getting power and the power nozzle works.

Rainbow e series will not turn on. Was working fine last time I used it.


There is a switch that is pushed in by a little plastic tab on the water tank when the machine is placed on the water tank. If the tab is broken off or the tank is not installed properly the vacuum will not run.

My Rainbow E Series Vacuum won't turn on at all after it just worked fine


Allowing to sit on water pan for only 3 hours is not going to kill your Rainbow by itself. If there is no more information to this issue than what you described, the problem could be the motor is going bad and the thermal cut off is tripped. Possible reason it didn't do it while you were running the unit, is the motor cooling fan kept the temperature inside the motor just below the tripping point and then when you turned the machine off, this allowed the temperature to creep up past the limit and trip the thermal cut off.

Rainbow E-series will not turn on


Hi, there is no reset button on a Rainbow vacuum. There is a safety switch on all E series and E2 series Rainbow vacuums, that keep it from running without the water basin on it.

If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also. Thank you, Ralph
One other thing. All E series vacuums have a built in circuit breaker on the motor. Some of the earlier ones, it was only a fuse, and if it blew, it had to be replaced, or removed and wired directly without it on there. Most of them have a automatic reseting curcuit breaker, that will blow and auto reset its self, after it cools off. They do sometimes stay blown also, and do not reset. If that is the case, it has to also be replaced, or removed, and wired directly, with out it on there.

Motor brushes are usually the source of a non working E-2 vacuums and when they burn out, they usually take the motor armature with them, from excessive heat and flare electrical arking to the armature.

Thank you again,
Ralph

Rainbow vacuum-water not spinning


Remove hose and turn on the unit with nothing on the intake - see if it helps - feel the suction with hand.

a) If it works fine without the hose - look for a clog in the hose, wand or the nozzle

b) If the suction is weak even without the hose:
Clean the separator,
If this is e-series or E2 Rainbow - remove HEPA and try vacuuming without it (sometimes it is too dirty so stops good airflow). New HEPAs HERE.
If this is SE Rainbow - remove exhaust cap and if there is a sponge - take it out

Still no luck - It has to be serviced

Good Luck,
Rocky

I am looking for a repair manual for this vacuum. Just stopped working and will not turn on. Can you tell me where to get a manual? Thanks

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Rainbow E Series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum. The best way to get a Rainbow E Series owner’s manual is to contact the Rainbow website and or factory and give them the model and serial # for the item and you may be able to download the manual from the website or the might have to mail it out to your home USPS. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
