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.
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.

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.

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.
