Rainbow Run Hot?

I have an E Series Rainbow. There is a component on the cicuit board, I believe it is a resister. This part gets hot and heats the soder and lets loose. After I reinstalled this component, vacuum ran for a few minutes before part falls out again. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Did you re-solder that component? You may have to replace that computer board, it may have other damage that you can't see.

Why does my plug get extremely warm or hot?


Inside the wire, several strands of wire are broke. Heat is caused by less strands of wire that have to carry more current in amps. This is a safety and fire hazard. Cut the old plug off by cutting the cord about 2 inches away from the plug. Strip the wires carefully. Do not cut or break off any strands of wire. Install a new plug. Make sure you buy a round plug that has a round opening for your round cord. A lot of plugs are for flat type of cords only.

Looking for replacement component for motor controller board, a capacitor that is in series with the AC input line.


Unfortunately Rainbow does not offer this part by itself, they only make the computer as a complete assembly. Rainbow E2 controller 120v You can try contacting local vacuum shops and see if they have any broken Rainbows with good controllers that they would be willing to sell only that part to you.

How to get solution out of rainbow shampooer


It is always best to run hot clean water through the wash cycle to flush out all soap when finished. This helps to prevent soap from drying in the lines and pump. You can also try this to help free a pump that is not working correctly.

Aquamate II doesn't come on


The early version of the AquaMate II was very sensitive to clogging. Run very hot water through all the lines in the wash cycle to clean out soup buildup. Let us know if that fixes it.

Aquamate tank wont pump


Not sure what version you have but the early version of the AquaMate II was very sensitive to clogging. No matter the version, run very hot water through all the lines in the wash cycle to clean out soup buildup. Let us know if that fixes it.

VACUUM RUNS FOR A MIN AND THEN SHUTS OFF


It sounds like a problem with you motor. The hepa filter has nothing to do with the motor, and should not have been removed. It sounds like the repair man doesn't know much about rainbows. It could be a short in the motor housing or faulty/improper wiring. It may have happened after it when it was worked on the first time. Is it similar to the problem you were having before?

If you bought it from a rainbow dealer, you need to contact them, you should have a warranty, depending on when you bought it. If it is still under warranty, they will fix or replace it for free. If the warranty has expired, they may be able to work out a deal to get it fixed or may be able to direct you to a rainbow repairman.

If it just quit running, it could be the cord. If you have a meter, you can check it to make sure it isn't broke. Take out the 4 I think, screw from the bottom, the top half should come off, then you get to the switch and the end of the cord. Check the motor brushes also, if they are worn down, they may not be conducting and the motor won't run. It gets involved, so don't know if you want to do this at home.

It could if the separator is binding, or dragging, when it turns, causing the motor to over heat, that maybe what you are smelling. If it is, then replace the separator.
