Vacuum has power but wont run


From your question it sounds like the Rainbow will not run on high speed. Very good chance the Controller Asm 120v e2 Silver Gold is bad. Call us when you are able as we can replace at a discounted price if your machine meets the requirements. Contact Us

How do I take apart the air purifier to clean it? I have a honeywell HTT-022 unit and it needs cleaning


Here is the owner's manual:

http://www.kaz-canada.com/kaz/support/manual/?ProductManualAction=renderProductManualById&ProductManualId=ee97a4e6784448b6f57acddb2f29a817

It says first to unplug the unit.

While pressing on the two notches along the front of the grille, pull the grille toward you and remove it.

Gently pull down on the top filter frame and pull forward.

Remove the protective wrap from the filter.

Place back into the air purifier housing and snap filter grille into place.

(This is verbatim from the instructions)

I want to take apart and clean my D4C Rainbow and my E series 1 speed, I bought both of them on Ebay, and both have odors,( They are suppose to be the vacuum that cleans and purifies the air) that leaves...


Sorry, but a Rainbow D4 has no filtration at all. The E series has a HEPA filter that needs replacing. You can put liquid Lysol in the water on the D4 and that will help

Rainbow Overflow .. HELP


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.

Rainbow SE vacuum cleaner has no power


Invert the vacuum cleaner without the water tray installed. With the machine unplugged, give the separator a spin clockwise. If it spins easily, this is a good sign. If the bearings are good on an SE, you should hear the faintest of rapid clicking sounds as you spin the motor. This is the sound of the brushes as the commutator segments pass under them. The brushes on SEs will sometimes hang up and not make proper contact; they are too precise a fit in their holders and the carbon dust they generate plus a tiny bit of moisture will cause them not to extend as they wear. When this happens, the brush tension spring overheats, relaxes, and it's time for new brushes and a service. Anyway, if you determine that the motor is turning smoothly (resistance or binding indicates bad bearings), install the water tray dry, plug the vac in, switch on, and give it a couple of bi__ch slaps with the palm of your hand on the side of the vac near the top. This can sometimes free up a stuck brush but the effect is likely not to last. It will, however, give indication of whether the machine might run or not after a fairly cheap repair (under 100 dollars).

Weak suction on rainbow se vacuum


Check for clogs in the nozzle air passages (remove bottom plate)
Check for clogs in the wand
Check for clogs in the hose (trow in a pebble or a penny and see if it comes out the other end)
Make sure separator is clean.
Remove exhaust cap (sometimes there is a sponge in the cap that gets disty and does not let the air pass through).Have in mind that it will not pick up well if the suction and the belt is good but brush roll bristles are worn and too short.

Good Luck,
Rocky

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.

I don't know how to take apart me Rainbow e2 series vac.


I recently took mine apart because the motor stopped working. Realized the brushes were pretty well worn down and one side was completely gone. I was looking on the internet for detailed instructions on how to take it apart. I ended up just ripping it apart with no problems but made a tutorial to help you guys out. Here's a link to it

http://www.vacuumcleanerforum.com/f20/21715-how-take-your-rainbow-vaccum-apart.html

This is for the e-series vaccum, not the e2 but they pretty much have the same design and same motor (e2 has a 2 stage motor).

Let me know if you have any questions

I can't take apart the Rainbow Rainmate to clean it.


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.
