Having problems with your Rainbow 75th Anniversary Canister Vacuum ?

There was a foam piece above the motor of my rainbow d4c power nozzle. When I took the plate off it desintigrated and fell off. Was that supposed to be there? If so how do I find a replacement?


Answers :

You said "above the motor", so I assume you meant the smaller foam piece located there, and not the gasket seal that is affixed to the inside of the metal bottom plate, (which is what the previous solution responder was referring to).

Most older Rainbows (99%) are running fine without the useless (IMHO) little foam piece that was originally just above the motor. It was meant to keep objects from getting sucked into the motor, but the odds of that are very remote, as the major air suction forces debris up through the center exhaust hole of the power nozzle, and into the hose, not toward the motor.
Hi, the only way to replace that, is go to home depot, or where ever, and buy some window seal foam, or door seal foam or what ever type, that matches your foam best, and put it on your self. You could also send it to me, and I will do it for you. I am a Rainbow seller and a Rainbow expert.

\015\012I use foam that is the soft kind, that is like the original Rainbow foam on them, and is about 1 inch wide, and about 3/8 to 1/2 inch thick.

\015\012It is self adhesive on the back side of it, that you peel off the paper cover off of it to stick it on.

Motor is sparking and smells like burning rubber. When it first happened I thought the vacuum had something jamming the beater bar. That was the smell it had, like when the belt gets burned. But when we turned it over, it wasn't jamming. Took off the base plate and turned it on. The motor area is sparking and it makes a weird noise (I assume that is because the motor fails and restarts). I looked for loose wires, can't find any. I believe I need some sort of part replaced, maybe even a n

I have a Hoover Windtunnel U5472-940. The belt broke so I replaced it. Immediately the next one broke. The belt goes around the brush cylinder and a metal post. I think there is supposed to be something on the metal post to protect the belt but I can't tell from the owner's manual. I also can't find out if this is a part that can be replaced. I've only had the vacuum about a year and a half. Thanks

I have an old Hoover vacuum model # U5035-930. The belt broke and I tried replacing the belt myself. I couldn't stretch the belt to attach it to the motor pully. It was belt # 38525-027 M6. Which I got from the previous owner. I took it to a vacuum repair place and he replaced it with belt # 38528-027 J4. I cannot find this belt anywhere.

I have a Hayden SuperVac 3600, almost 10 years old. The unit still runs, but now when I switch to the power nozzle, it doesn't have power to turn that. I think this happened once before and maybe they replaced a circuit board(?). We took it to a local repairman this time and he says he can fix it temporarily with a new cartridge, but that he won't promise it won't happen again soon.....

I was trying to repair my wife's kitchenaid mixer and took part of it apart, including the back part, where the electrical connections are. The original problem was the plastic gear was damaged -- I finally had the good sense to find the solution for that problem on the internet and replaced the damaged part. But now the mixer just won't turn on. I don't think I damaged anything in the electrical section, but I suspect I either blew a fuse or somehow disconnected something.

I heard that a class action lawsuit against Oreck Vacuum is being started because of all the problems customers are having with their vacuums. Does anyone know about this?
