I don't know how to take apart me Rainbow E2 series...
Posted by tomang6 on Jul 10, 2008
I'm in the process of replacing some parts on my Rainbow and found out my Rainbow has a filter around the motor. I can't figure how to get my Rainbow apart to get to the motor to see if the filter needs replaced.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Rainbow E2 Series can be complicated and the best way if you are to do it yourself is to contact the Rainbow factory; to get the owner’s manual and check the trouble shooting and or a schematic to see the break down. As per the filter – the water in the pan is actually the filter; there is a rubber gasket that you could replace and there are screw under the gasket but the biggest maintenance is the cleaning of the separator, take a newspaper and place it under the Rainbow and turn on the vacuum without the water pan underneath and spin the moisture out of the motor for a period of 30 to 45 seconds. Also, there are a lot of wires under the housing so make sure you mark or label your wires when you install or re-install the motor section. 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.

SOURCE: e series

The clear lenses on either side of the top part of the E-series Rainbow are removable. If you look at the each lens you will see two sections on the top edge of each lens that looks like this |___| |___| about 1 1/2 inches in from each end. Put a small screwdriver in the middle of each one of these (I used 2 screwdrivers at once) and pry out. The clips will come undone and you can remove the lens this way, exposing the screws which hold the motor cover on. On my E-2, there were 4 screws under here, and once I removed them, the top came right off.

SOURCE: 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.

Our rainbow e2 black type 12 vaccum was meant to be used on 110v and was plugged into a 220v, what part needs to be changed to convert the machine to work with 220v


nothing that I can guess at but changing the motor to a 220 . might be more cost effective to purchase a new vacuum cleaner .or use a 110 convertor for your outlets

Rainbow e2 type 12 120v , accidentally plugged into 220v, would barely power up, possibly controller board defective?


probably need both as the extra 100 volts would burn the board and the motor
it is never advisable to buy electric equipment from another country because of the voltage differences but even then the plugs are made different so that the cord will not plug directly into the power outlet.

MY RAINBOW VACUUM HAS LOST SUCTION POWER AND i DON'T KNOW WHY


Your Rainbow E series has lost suction power, because you need a new hepa filter, ot your water basin gasket is messed up, or the center motor gasket is messed up or out of position.

Make sure your water basin is not cracked or broken, also.

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

If it is an earlier model, everything applies, except for the filter. They do not have filters, on any of the earlier models.

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

http://www.vacuumcleanerforum.com/f20/21715-how-take-your-rainbow-vaccum-apart.html

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
