Question about Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
I was vacuuming and the beater bar brush stopped working, so i pulled out some long hair from the cylinder and then when i turn the vacuum on the beater bar brush works for like 10 seconds and then shuts off.
Does the power head motor stop, or does the brush roll stop. If it is the brush roll stopping, replace the belt and/or the brush roll. If it is the motor, you may need to clean out around the motor, it may not be getting enough air to cool causing it to overheat and stopping. That the brush roll plate off, take out the screw, and the top will come off, then you can check to see if cleaning is the answer, if not, the motor may be bad.
