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. All E series vacuums have a built in circuit breaker on the motor. Some of the earlier ones, ot was only a fuse, and if it blew, it had to be replaced. Most of them have a automatic reseting curcuit breaker, that will blow and auto reset its self, after it cools off. They do sometimes stay blown also, and do not reset. If that is the case, it has to also be replaced, or removed, and wired directly, with out it on there.



    Motor brushes are usually the source of a non working E-2 vacuums and when they burn out, they usually take the motor armature with them, from excessive heat and flare electrical arking to the armature.



    Thank you again,

If in the middle of running your machine, then the problem could be either the motor on the single speed e SERIES or the controller on the two speed e2 version. Contact us if that does not solve your problem. We have free technical support.

Rainbow turns on for a second or two then quits and won't turn back on.


If you have the model Rainbow E-2 eSERIES then the Motor Rainbow 120v could be going bad. This will trip the auto reset until it cools down.
If you have an E2 Type 12 Rainbow, then the Controller Asm 120v e2 Silver Gold could be going bad.

My rainbow was working, now the rug cleaner quit.


Does your power nozzle have a red power light? Your Circuit Breaker PN2E PN2 could be defective. Also check the hose connection to the front of the Rainbow. Be sure that it has both latches secure. This can cause power nozzle to not run.

Rainbow E2 2 speed vacuum motor whines at startup


I used to sell rainbow vacuums and this latest 2 speed model does whine when it is first turned on. So you definately have nothing to worry about. I believe this is due to the fact that this motor is much more powerful than in the previous 1 speed E series model. I finally just purchased a 2 speed model after many many years of wanting one. Good luck to ya and enjoy your clean house!

I bought my rainbow se vacum 4 years ago and I was using it and suddendly stoped working, I try to on no power I on and off not working at all. what shall i do is there posibility to work again.pls.help...


Hi, there is no reset button on a Rainbow vacuum.

All SE series vacuums have a built in thermal and load fuse on the motor, and if it blew, it has to be replaced, or wired directly, with out it on there.
Motor brushes are usually the source of a non working Rainbow D4 and SE and all model Rainbow vacuums and when they burn out, they usually take the motor armature with them, from excessive heat and flare electrical arking to the armature. It is probably the thermal and load fuse, that is your problem, if you did not smell any electric burning type of smell, before it quit. It could be the power switch, but not as likely as the fuse. If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Rainbow e2 2 speed vacuum shuts off after 5 minutes of vacuuming.


2 speed E2 models have a circuit board inside that controls the machine. It sounds like this controller board may be bad. The unfortunate part of this is that the board is not only very expensive, but it is only available from an authorized Rainbow service center.
Use caution if you decide to work on this yourself or if you take it to a service center that is not famliar with these models. The circuit board mentioned above is susceptible to damage from static eclectricity discharge. The static you generate from just walking across a carpet could make this board useless. So, if the original problem is not the board you could make the problem worse.

Rainbow Vacuum loss of suction


If it is not the Hepa filter, you can check it by removing it running machine and seeing if there is a difference. It is always good to have your unit serviced about every 5 - 8 years or so.

My Rainbow stopped running


did you ever find out the problem with your rainbow? Mine did the same thing today- turned on the switch yet nothing happened. Think it needs a new switch???? Do you know how to get canister apart after taking out first screws?

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.
