The E series has a clear plastic window on each side that you remove to get to the screws, remove them and it will come apart. Some will have tabs instead of screws.

Older rainbow vacuum just humbs


It sounds like you have a seized motor.

I find as long as the motors brushes and armature are in good condition, then it is a matter of taking it apart and cleaning it out piece by piece.
90% of the time, you will need a new bearing for the top plate where the shaft comes through.
That is what causes the problem in the first place most of the time.

It is substantial job doing this even for us repair techs!

I hope this helps!

Have you checked the channel from the brush roll area to the hose for blockage? Dust accumulation is usually a sure sign of an obstruction.

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,
Ralph
One other thing, water sucking through your vacuum should not hurt it. It is not good though, but will not make it not run.

Thank you again,
Ralph

How to maintain up keep on my rainbow vacuum


Be sure and never store on water basin, keep separator and seal on bottom of rainbow clean. Keep your beater bar clean. You should be good for many many years.

It's plugged!

If it happened suddenly, you have a jam somewhere. Unhook the hose to see if it's in the hose or the unit.

If it happened over time then it's likely dirty or full. Wet dirt can accumulate near the blower and inhibit suction. Cleaning the filter is almost always a good idea.

Best to you, Jidza

First - press the circuit breaker button.
If no luck:
1. Make sure you have connected it properly (see diagram here)
2. If you connected it right - try bypassing circuit breaker.
3. Still does not work - make sure the connectors are reconnected properly.

This should take care of the problem.

Rainbow e series musty odor


The unit and the nozzle have to be taken apart and cleaned. You almost for sure will need a new HEPA and possibly even the motor cooling filter. There is a lot of dust inside that got moist (moisture in the air,vacuuming wet carpet, maybe you have pets or everything together)

It will require a bit more advanced skills but you do not have to be a vacuum repair professional to do this.

Hi: I took my unit apart to clean it. I was careful to put it back exactly as I took it apart. Now it won't start. I also need a new filter. I rinsed it out but it still stinks.
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best way is to check your owner’s manual to see the trouble shooting guide of which may help you. It could be a loose wire; or the separator could be on too tight, I am going to give you the Rainbow / RexAir Factory phone # so that you can check with cust serv or their serv tech support. Feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area also.

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 Rainbow / RexAir Factory phone number is listed below:
