Hi there SmartAlec From NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Ok the switch is a tricky one if you havent done it before but the trick is having the right tool. I assume you have got the machine stripped to that point (phillips head screwdriver is all thats required here). You need a tool like a knitting needle but thinner, i am sorry i dont know what its called but basically you put that beside each wire and as you push it in you can pull out the switch wire one at a time. Mark down the position of the wires before pulling them out you can blow a new switch by hooking the wires in the wrong configuration. Hope this helps!. Happy Vacuuming:)

How do I replace the fuse on a rainbow vaccum?


The D4 model Rainbow has a Thermal Cut Off
This has to be manually replaced. It is attached to the Field 120v D4
If this has blown, then most likely something is causing. The Armature Tall 120v D4 could be going bad.

Vacum works on low but not on high??????


I hate to tell you, but your computer is most likely the problem, and is out on your E2 two speed vacuum.

The only solution is to get a new computer for it.

It is realy not worth replacing it, because it may also be the motor. The E2 is a very high tec system, and is not like any other hacuum. When you turn it on, you are not turning on the vacuum. You are turning on the computer, which is controling everything.

I could supply you with another canister, if you are interested.

If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,

I bought my rainbow se vacum 4 years ago and I was using it and suddendly stoped working, I try to on no power I on and off not working at all. what shall i do is there posibility to work again.pls.help...


Hi, there is no reset button on a Rainbow vacuum.

All SE series vacuums have a built in thermal and load fuse on the motor, and if it blew, it has to be replaced, or wired directly, with out it on there.
Motor brushes are usually the source of a non working Rainbow D4 and SE and all model Rainbow vacuums and when they burn out, they usually take the motor armature with them, from excessive heat and flare electrical arking to the armature. It is probably the thermal and load fuse, that is your problem, if you did not smell any electric burning type of smell, before it quit. It could be the power switch, but not as likely as the fuse. If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,
Ralph

Possable broken/Disconected wire


hope you have checked the obvious first ..the plug are all the conections tight including the fuse? if so check the vac's switch for loose conections .lets face it the mains feeds the switch the switch feeds the motor unless you have a speed switch. sounds like a fault that could be cured with a bit of investigation good luck farr64

Rainbow d4se assembly


Generic problem for all Vacuums
Rainbow d4se assembly
How to assemble correct movable fan gen., middle fan spacer, rexair d4 lower stage fan and so on? Which side goes first?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You can change the fans on the RexAir / Rainbow vacuum but sometimes that is only a temporary fix, the fans would be new but the rest of the motor may burn out sooner with the added load to the motor and sometimes it is more cost efficient to replace the motor than to repair it and have it break down or burn up the motor, as far as the spacing
You can refer to the nearest vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages or call the RexAir/Rainbow factory for a schematic of the breakdown of the motor, and you can also cal the factory or check the website and download the owners manual from the website.

Motor replacement for Rainbow D4se


From the bottom, remove the screws separating the top and the bottom. Then at the bottom, remove the round water seal, take out those screws, ( careful with the water seal, reglue it with contact cement when you put it back on). At the top of the motor, take out the scres around the motor and it should pull out.
