Re: rainbow e series vaccum/scubber

If you are talking about the hard wood floor brush you hook it at the end of the one slightly bent wand. Look at the end of the brush that you would hook to the wand. In the circle opening there are two slits. On the end of the wand there are two bumps. You need to line them up, push the brush on then twist it around so it stays on. then you attach the straight wand to that and the other slightly bent wand at the other end of the straight one. It will go like this Wet hose, slightly bent wand, straight wand, slightly bent wand, and floor brush. I hope I helped. Leave the basin empty. put your water or cleaner on the floor scrub it around then turn machine on and suck it up.

Rainbow Model e Series will not start. Where is the reset button on this vaccum?

There is no reset button on the canister. It may be a bad power switch, a power cord, or the button that presses in when you put the water basin in place may be bad - or the prong on the water basin that pushes that button in when you place the canister on the basin may be broken off.

I don't know how to take apart me Rainbow e2 series vac.

I recently took mine apart because the motor stopped working. Realized the brushes were pretty well worn down and one side was completely gone. I was looking on the internet for detailed instructions on how to take it apart. I ended up just ripping it apart with no problems but made a tutorial to help you guys out. Here's a link to it

This is for the e-series vaccum, not the e2 but they pretty much have the same design and same motor (e2 has a 2 stage motor).

Let me know if you have any questions

Rainbow E Series

You are supposed to use the hard surface cleaner solution and mix with water. Vaccum the hard surface first, then dip the hard surface attachement in the mixture (while machine is off. otherwise you will just **** up all the mixture! :) ) turn on the machine and "mop" away!! I love it!!

No power to scrubber head

Hi Dennis_b,

to continue checking that problem, please see, with an electrical screwdriver, if the machine has energy where the scrubber connects. If yes, the problem is in the scruber; if no, the problem is in the machine, where a red and a black wire makes the connection since the electrical extension to the scrubber connetion, passing thru the swich. it makes me to think in various problems. Even a broken wire can make a malfunction.

My Rainbow E series power switch doesn't work

To get access you need to remove the plastic side cover panels. To remove these, I found the easiest way was to use a small flat screw driver, leverage it under the pastic in the centre at the 'cord end' and lift carefully. There are two lugs at the top and one at the bottom. The plastic panel will 'bow' a little, but with care, it will pop off. The gold looking vents underneath are just a 'facade'. By removing the side plastic panels they will expose three screws either side. Undo these and the top will half of the cleaner will lift off. Good luck!
