Having problems with your Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

E2 Rainbow vacuum motor protector

\015 I have an E2 Rainbow vacuum system and the motor protector trips just after a few minutes of running. I have to let it cool down for a long time to be able to re-start it but, eventually, it will trip again.\015

Answers :

You need to take the Heppa Filter off and rinse it very good under running water in the sink. You will see the dirt roll out of it! I'm not sure on dry time though. You may want to check with the manufacturer.

This happened to a friend of mine but she wasn't so lucky. She burnt the motor up and she had to replace it.

Some possible ideas:\015\012
\015\012Make sure the cone shaped air impeller does not have hair/thread/fibers wrapped around it. This will cause the motor to work harder, and trip the protector. \015\012
\015\012Make sure you are not overfilling the vacuum with water. If the water is touching the impeller, that will also cause it to move slower, and trip the protector. \015\012
\015\012Other than that, i'd have to examine it. \015\012
\015\012Hope that helps!

The thermal motor protector on sears model 116.35912 Kenmore vacuum won't reset. The manual says to wait 30 minutes and the thermal protector will reset on it's own.

Rainbow Vacuum, about 5 yrs old (bought new, no issues prior) - my 6yr old tipped it on it's side while water was in basin. Now when I turn the power on, it makes a very loud sound in the motor and you can feel the vibration on the floor. The suction still works and basin still catches dirt - the noise is just so loud and I'm not sure if I should continue use or how to fix -?

I purchased a Eureka C4910 last year and have a question that I am hoping you can answer. There are two motor actions with this vacuum, 1) the vacuum suction, and 2) the beater bar. The action of the beater bar is that motor is supposed to automatically shut off when the handle is in the complete vertical position assuming the vacuum is stationary, but then turn on when the handle is tilted toward the floor, assuming the vacuum is moving back and forth. The beater bar motor turn-on mechan

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.


It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums

Motor My vacuum cut out as I was using it. After some experimenting I found that the circuit reset had gone off. When I tried a second time while near the motor , there was a flash and again the motor shut off. At this time I am guessing that the motor is faulty.

If it tripped the reset again, I would probably agree with you. Check out centralvacuum.com for another motor. They aren't the cheapest, but they have excellent support. Good Luck!! ... Easy Flo EF1400 Central System Vacuum
