Does the separator turn easily by hand? If it does, may be there is a problem with the carbon brushes. If this model is one that has the computor board mounted on top of the motor, there may be a problem with it.

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

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.

No power


You must have a late model 2006 or newer E2 two speed Rainbow vacuum that has the white foam padding in the canister, to dampen the sound of the motor, and has a red light on the computer board.

I hate to tell you, but your computer is most likely the problem, and is out on your E2 two speed vacuum.

The only solution is to get a new computer for it.

It is realy not worth replacing it, because it may also be the motor. The E2 is a very high tec system, and is not like any other vacuum. When you turn it on, you are not turning on the vacuum. You are turning on the computer, which is controling everything.

I could supply you with another canister, if you are interested.

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

Thank you,
Ralph

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!

E2 gold series - makes loud noise on start up


That is normal. All E2 two speed Rainbows make that sound. It is because it has a brushless motor that the computer is controling, and the computer is controling everything. The motor rotor has no coils on it on the rotor, which is very small and light, and the computer gives it a small power boost when you first turn on, then increases the power until ir reaches full speed.

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

Thank you,
Ralph
