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

My rainbow tipped over and water got in the motor. I dried it out but it still won't work. Is there a fuse or anything that I have to reset? Suggestions?


Answers :

The only thing I can tell you is that there is a thermal overload switch in the E series models. The water could have damaged it. As far as water getting into the motor itself it is very difficult to dry a rainbow out because they are so sealed. It has probably rusted the field coils, bearings, and possibly destroyed the motor. Take it to a vac repair shop and hope for the best. OH. was your rainbow turned on or off? If on it should not have hemorrhaged water into the motor chamber.

I have a DC14. About a wk ago it was making loud sound and bar stopped turning. i unclogged everything....now the suction works great. However, the bar still wont turn. The belt inside is still intact and isnt loose. Several solutions suggested resetting the "Red" button...i have searched the vacuum over and over. there is NO red or any other color reset button. The bar is set down perfectly in there, the cover plate is installed properly. What other problems could there be? Or do i just need to

Low suction I have a Hoover central vacuum system. I've reset the fuse box, checked the fuses, all of the lines are clear and there are no holes for escaped air to travel out. The filter has been cleaned as well. The vac works well with high suction when hooked directly to the unit, however when using any of the indoor connections there is extremely low suction. The machine still turns on so I do not believe it is an electronic issue. I have troubleshooted the issue as best I could and would

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try? This vacuum cleaner has not really been used that much, it is hard to believe the motor would need replaced


There probably is a loose wire in the handle near the switch or a wire off near the swivel elbow near the vac power head. With the right fastener tool to remove some screws you can fix it yourself ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

My Miele capricorn has started making an odd noise. It seems like something is blocking the engine. I've turned if off and on, and reset it and it still have the odd, almost loud barking noise. The power nozzle also does not seem to be working. I've checked the connections. Right before this happened I was using the vacuum. I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary until this.

I opened the cannister to change the bag and when I closed it the motor switch will not turn on. The second position which turns on the attachment for rugs still comes on. We thougth it was the switch so we ordered the part and it is still doing the same thing. Is there a reset button somewhere inside? The only reset button I see is on the attachment which is working.


It can be a few things. First check the overload protector located on top of the canister. If it has tripped the unit will not run.

Sounds to me like you have a open wire. There is a break in the wire inside to the insulation and as you move it, it gains and loses connection. You can test it with a continuity tester as you move the wire or just replace it to see if that solves th ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum
