Question about Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

1 Answer

Loud rainbow and water leaking

My raibow Eseries vacuum was running very loud and had a burning smell. I took it to the repair shop and they said it needed a new motor. My husband purchased and replaced the motor and the circular filter inside. It is still running loud now and water is coming out of the back and leaking a little from where the canister meets the foam seal inside. My separator piece has two thin vent pieces broken off and missing. Could this be the reason for the water leaking and for the loud sound? Or could it be something else?

If pieces are missing or broken I would try and replace the piece. You can usually get these items cheap on Ebay.

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.

Vacuum won't turn on


Be sure to that the latches are connected to the water pan. The eSERIES and up will not turn on without the water pan latched. If that is not the issue, please call us and speak to a Rainbow Specialist.

My e-2 vacuum runs very loud and smell like it's burning.


You may have damaged a bearing or bearing housing and that could be causing the motor armature and field to rub together which in turn causes the motor to draw a significantly increased current to overcome the friction. It could be a simple fix if it is a bearing but if it is the housing then it is likely toast. I used to repair motors years ago and the cost then was not bad. However if the motor is heat damaged, as happened to my power rack last year, it was cheaper to buy a new one than replace the motor. A burned out motor is not worth repairing these days.

MY RAINBOW VACUUM HAS LOST SUCTION POWER AND i DON'T KNOW WHY


Your Rainbow E series has lost suction power, because you need a new hepa filter, ot your water basin gasket is messed up, or the center motor gasket is messed up or out of position.

Make sure your water basin is not cracked or broken, also.

If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,

Have a rainbow e-2 that was running and quit.


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
