Question about Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

1 Answer

Rainbow E series with sparkling engine

Dear Ladies & Gentleman,
I have a vacuum cleaner Rainbow E Series wich stoped working. I verified the lower security shaft that is working perfectly. Dismounted the device and noted that the engine is not clogged. There are two golded kind of engine breaks (opposite one each other) wich I dismounted to verify both string's strengh. They seem a bit weak and the brakes a bit used. Experiencing the engine, I turned it on, with the empty canister in it's place and I noted that, when I make the machine's restore (red button), the engine spins for a bit making some sparkles and it turns off again(that I know is the security system working). Now, my problem is not knowing that, if by having those used "engine brakes" (and I will know their exact function with a mechanic at my work place), is there missing some small pieces that keeps the engine working as it was for this 8 years of life of that wonderfull cleaner (used to many times in my cars too).

Thanks for all the attention and any good help ;-)

    Dear Friend,



    Thank you for the help, actually I contacted Rainbow's representatives in my country, telling them the problem and asking for a solution. Next Monday I'll call them too. Hope they remember and confirm that of the 10 year engine warranty ;-)



    Thanks once more

I think what you are talking about are the motor brushes. If they are sparking alot, then they need to be replaced, but also a bad armature will cause this and replacing the carbon brushes won't help. In that case you would have to replace the motor. But I thing the E series has a 10 year warranty on the motor, so you may want to check on that as this motor is very expensive.

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.

Thank you,
Ralph

Hi, there is no reset button on a Rainbow vacuum. There is a safety switch on all E series and E2 series Rainbow vacuums, that keep it from running without the water basin on it.
If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,

Need to know how to install rainbow water pan latch and spring latch

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Rainbow E Series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum. The Rainbow latch can be replaced but I believe it is a pop rivet that holds and replaces the old latch and to replace the new latch, I have seen it done but if you don’t have the right tools you may want to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area, it can be done. 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.

Hi Zulydia,

does that version has the "restore" red button in the upper side?
If yes, when you push it, the engine showld work for litle time only (restoring), then the rest is normal. If not, the engine can be clogged, wich needs to be opened and cleaned (tuff operation but easy). Normally it happens when the engine has a overheat.

Reset buton?


Hi painter1 and skkkfam,
even not knowing what Rainbow models are you using, I know that in the newer versions there's a red buton in upper side that is "Restore". Other case is a security shaft that makes the machine available when we turn it on, wich works only when the water tank is on it.

you'll need to see if that shaft is well sit in it's place and working perfectly (you'll ear a small click pushing a small insider black button in the lower side of the machine, when separated of the wet canister). If nothing of this works, you'll need to see the engine, because it's clogged.

Best complements
