Question about Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

Power head handle wiring

I had a clog up next to the handle and the only way to unclog it was to take the handle apart. When I did I was able to unclog the hose but I have a wire with a protective sleeve on it that is connected to the handle by the switch asembly and the other end I do not know where it goes.

Can you help

That wire goes just above where the trigger is, take the trigger out and there is a slot that the end goes into.

Our combination steam-vacuum cleaner, Oreck has clogged the vacuum tube up into the handle where the bag less filter is? How to unclog or take apart to clean out?


A " mechanicky " person can use a variety of shop items and tricks to clean that out, such as high air pressure, shop vacuum machines, long poker rods, etc. etc. to clean this out for you.
God bless your efforts.

Have suction but belt not moving


Are you referring to the drive belt on the power head? Remove the power head and try vacuum without it, if it picks up fine, the problem in in the power head/hose assembly, could have a blockage inside the head of the hoses attached to the head. If those are all OK, look for an air leak in the system. at/around the bag, canister, loose clamps, etc.

You most likely have either a clogged screen at the bottom of the fill tank or the jets that spray fluid are clogged. You can unscrew them and power a paper clip through them. If the hoses are by chance clogged which doesn't happen often, Pull one off at a time and blow real hard to unclog, then put it back on, then move to next hose.
Do NOT take all of them apart at the same time or they can get mixed up and it's a pain to figure out how it all went back together.

Disconnect the hose and head and wands. Drop a quarter thru the hose, the handle sometimes clogs. peer thru the wands and inspect the elbow on the head for blockage as well

I have a clogged hose. How can I take it apart to get the clog out? or what can i stick up it to get it out?


Most vacuum cleaner hoses can be unplugged at some point. One way to clear a clog is to reverse the hose & let the vacuum **** the clog out the way it went in. If you have to remove the clog manually, a length of coat hanger wire, with a small hook bent on one end, will serve. Most clogs are near the hose ends, so not much wire length is required.

Meile s251i won't turn on


Hi If the power head isn't working it may be clogged. Try taking it apart to see if threads and general dirt has got in at the sides. Also without the power head if the Miele still isn't working then its a possibility that the on switch wiring is either loose or check the plug at the end of the power cord.
