\015\012Hello,
\015\012I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
\015\012No…. I would advise NOT running the machine without the filter because you will burn up the motor. You can use a paper bag with a rubber band to slide over the motor to protect it from dust and also if you have a foam type filter – you can put the foam filter on first, then the paper bag then the rubber band, or if you have a cartridge filter you can run it with just the cartridge filter bur would suggest cleaning the cartridge filter after each use – also you can place the paper bag method over the cartridge filter as well or call the Delonghi factory and order the part or they will direct you to a local dealer, Info listed below:

We have a series e rainbow cleaner. my wife had been using it i turned off and turned the canister up sie down to get the serial number. it would not turn back on.we need a new hose and thats why i was looking for the serial num. it has a rocker switch and the motor will work on low but will not run on the suction side. i have checked the wiring harnesses out as best i could without taken it all apart. im wondering if it may be the switch. it started once and then stopped.


There is one way to verify if it is the switch.It's kind of dangerous though,but not too bad.You need an extra piece of wire,fairly thick.I would use 4 guage myself.Hold it with pliers,just in case it gets hot.Turn the switch on and hold the wire to ... Rainbow Vacuums

I have a Craftsman wet dry vac with blower capability (22 L). While I was using it to **** up water, the water came out of the blower hose. Now I can't get it to work as a vacuum. What can I do to fix this problem? Is there a toggle switch somewhere that allows me to choose vacuum or blower? Also, will the vacuum still work without the filter nut attached to the plate? Please let me know at your earliest convenience. Thank you.

My Shop Vac (Brand) Mdl#934-16-11 keeps shutting off while I'm dry vacuuming. I can turn it back on then it will shut off again. The filter is spotless, so that's not the issue. There isn't any reset buttons. The only thing I can think of is that the float for wet vacuuming is somehow being sucked up causing the the motor to be tripped off. The vacuum is only about a year and a half old and used only sparingly. Help!
