While vacuuming, the brush roller quit working. Nothing happens when the trigger is activated. New hepa filter and brush roller belt installed. Suction is good.


Does your power nozzle have a red power light on top? Is it light up when you squeeze the trigger? If it does, then there is a good chance that the Circuit Breaker PN2E PN2 is defective. If that is not the problem, then check the hose connection to the front of the Rainbow. Be sure that it has a solid connection. If not, then the contacts can't connect for power.

Power nozzle does not work. Light comes on on power nozzle but it does not vacuum


Many early version PN-2E power nozzles have reset buttons that are becoming faulty. The factory stopped adding the rest button to this model power nozzle so you can update your unit by removing and this my solve your issue. You have the trigger to stop the motor if you have an issue so the rest button has become unnecessary.

Why won't my Rainbow E Series won't turn on?


It sounds like your motor is probably dead.
You would need a new motor if the Rainbow is getting power and the power nozzle works.

You can find a new motor here:

On my rainbow e series the power nozzle roller isn't spinning when I press the trigger even though all power is working fine. The roller is fairly new. I've also checked that nothing is blocking the hose...


Power must run from the vacuum through the hose where the trigger mechanism closes the circuit and allows power to pass through the hose to the wand, then to the power nozzle. A short or bad connection in any of these areas will cause the power nozzle motor to not run.

Need instruction to replace circuit breaker for Rainbow E series..


The factory has stopped using the circuit breaker in the power nozzles. Reason is that it is redundant as you can turn power nozzle off with the trigger in the handle if you get something caught or have an issue. Just wire all the leads together and bypass the reset button.

I have a Rainbow E2 which I purchased in early October. My Power Nozzle is not working right. When I used it before, it pulled, now it barely moves on its own. I cleaned all the hair off of it and it...


Does the brush turn freely when you try to manually turn it?
Does it rotate when the power nozzle motor is on?
If not, it's most likely the belt that turnd the brush has broken. This will result in the brush not rotating, which in turn doesn't provide the pulling action and ease of use it's supposed to have.
If it's a new machine, you need to take it to the nearest Rainbow store for warranty repair. Disassembling yourself will result in the warranty being voided.

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,
Ralph

No spinning in the power head


First, check the red reset button on the power nozzle head. - if it's popped out, push it in. Also, if you have a switch on the handle, make sure you're pressing it while you're vacuuming. if those obvious solutions are already remedied, you may need to check the power outlet on the canister for voltage with a voltmeter while the vacuum is running, and then check your power hose and wand for continuity (checking for a broken wire) while the hose is disconnected from the canister. If all this checks out and the power nozzle still doesn't power on, you may have a bad motor in the power nozzle. If you're good at taking things apart, then it's a simple fix to replace the power nozzle motor.
