Most of Rainbows water tank have a peg or a water fill line and should not be more then indicated. The separator should keep water out of the motor. Other then that you will need to have it checked.

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

Ran my rainbow e series without the separator. What should I do now?


If you were not vacuuming, just running it on blower setting you should be alright. The Separator prevents large items from getting into the vacuum when you are vacuuming. There is a gasket there that protects the motor from water. Double check where the separator goes and make sure there is no gunk or debris there, if so clean it out before running. Being that you were able to run it without any problems, noises or smells I would say you are probably fine.

I just ran my rainbow e series accidentally without the separator. What should I do?


Your Rainbow should be o.k if you completely dried it out. But rinsing the hepa filter has usually not worked out well for most people (soory for that news) but good news is that they should last around 8 to 10 years with no rinsing.

Rainbow e series will not turn on. Was working fine last time I used it.


There is a switch that is pushed in by a little plastic tab on the water tank when the machine is placed on the water tank. If the tab is broken off or the tank is not installed properly the vacuum will not run.

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

When I turned on the vacuum it started to smell


the vacuum is either shorting or the motor or brush assembly is rubbing something.

My Rainbow SE vacuum was working fine until I ran over the edge of a rug and it went in to the nozzle. I immediately switched the vacuum off and proceeded to move the rug. When I tried to turn the Rainbow...


hello lilbutmunch1,
The brush is motor/belt driven so you probably either broke the belt or it shifted off the motor or brush shaft. I suggest you unplug it,flip it over and look for screws that hold the baseplate together.. remove those screws and seperate the baseplate to gain access to the brush and motor head. Once open, it should be fairly obvious what the problem is.. a broken belt, a belt that has shifted or the brush won't spin freely due to an obstruction. Hope this helps..
Regards,
Rick ( bigbutmunch..LOL)

Powerhead on rainbow not working


If the motor is NOT running - press the red button on the nozzle (assuming you have the model with the button on the nozzle)
If it stops working as soon as you release the button - you need a new circuit breaker. If Motor in the nozzle works but brush does not spin - you have to replace the belt.

Good Luck
