This is a time consuming jod. You will need to carefully peel back thew rubber gasket around the separator . Underneath you will find several hidden screws.Loosen them off. With the separator removed you will be able to loosen the upper body and motor and work your way to the powerhead receptacle.

I smelled something burning one day , but i kept using my d4c, now the motor part does not run but the top plug in will run


I work on Rainbows. D4C-E2 etc. Not sure what you mean by the top plug in. There are two motors in the rainbow, one in the main unit, one in the power head. Where was the odor coming from? email me back with more info, I can help you with this. Jerry

I think the switch on the Rainbow E-series electric hose went bad. Is there an easy vway to verify it's the switch?


Hi, the only way, is to test that it has power at the swirch with a circuit tester or voltage meeter, or test the plug on the handle where you attach your power head power cord, or Rainbowmate power cord to.
If it does not get power there, then test that the switch is getting power.
If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,
Ralph

How to remove an old Rainbow E Series Cooling Filter


The motor filter is under the top cover.
Caution: Be sure your vacuum is unplugged from the electrical outlet before proceeding! There are 2 screws on each side of the top cover of the Rainbow ‘E’ series vacuum cleaners located behind the decals. To get to the screws; use a non-scratching tool such as a plastic putty knife and pry out a corner of the plastic window, carefully pull out the plastic window and decal and remove the 2 screws. Repeat this process for both windows and then just lift up the top cover to expose the inside.

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.

Motor filter replacement


If you are talking about the motor cooling filter round filter like this here then you must have removed wrong screws. Screws that you want to remove are hidden under clear lenses on the sides of the unit. You will need a screwdriver to remove the lenses (2 latches at the top of each lens). Once you have removed lenses you will see screws (4 or 6 - depending on the e-series model). Remove them and you will have the access to the filter.

Good Luck

Cleaning the filter on a e series rainbow vacuum
Posted by jonesjpc on Jul 06, 2008
This one does not have the tabs to depress as but has two screws in that area still doesn’t see how to get to the filter. Also I need instructions to replace power cord; On the E series single speed.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. On the Rainbow E Series there really is no actual filter – the water is the filter for this particular vacuum. Before you remove the separator under the motor, place a newspaper or towel under the Rainbow without the water pan under the vacuum and then turn it on for a short period of time and spin the water moisture out of the motor and separator; then some of the maintenance is to remove the separator under the motor and clean that and then replace it. As far as replacing the cord there are screws under the Rainbow that need removal and then you can get to the end of the cord for replacement. The easiest way is to mark your wires and the cord will be much easier to replace otherwise check the owner’s manual for cord replacement or check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to cal the cust serv @ the Rainbow factory for questions.

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!
