Having problems with your Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum ?
No spinning in the power head
\015 I have Rainbow e series and the wheel isn't spinning at the bottom of the head. The belt is secure/tight and there is suction at the bottom of the wand. What's the problem? Do I need a new power nozzle or wand?\015\012\015\012Thanks-\015\012Brent\015
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.

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
The belt is stretched and needs replacement.(Belt # 38528036) . The brush is not turning against resistance. ... Hoover Vacuums
