Question about Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
I believe the motor on this unit has brushes. These are little conductive pieces that provide electricity to the spinning motor windings. They wear out over time and need replacing.
I have found a link online that will show you how to disassemble, but it may not be the same model you have. Good luck.

Steps to take before assuming the worst:
1. Make sure the latches on either side are locked.
2. You may have it too full of water. You should only fill it no more than 1/4" below the bulb in the center of the water container.
3. Make sure the Hepa filter is in good shape. If there is no air getting through it, than that may be the problem. If the filter is clogged, DO NOT run the vacuum! It will burn the motor up.
