Having problems with your Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum ?
How come the plug ends on my rainbow vacuum turn green when plugged in to the wall.
Do you live in an area with high humidity? This green effect is simply oxidization of the brass prongs. You may want to keep them shiny with a little bit of Scotchbrite tm.. Possibly, dissimilar metals in your wall plugs contacts are causing this slight corrosion. You really should only worry if the vac's plug is getting hot or very warm.

The last time the vacuum cleaner was used the outlet sparked causing it to smoke when turning on vacuum cleaner. I replaced the outlet and plugged it in and things seemed o.k. Today I turned on the vacuum, it stayed on for a mili second and went off. I checked the switch on the vacuum and it showed voltage coming and going, but would not turn on again. I checked all the wires in the area of the switch all seemed o.k. I thought maybe there might be a short in the cord. When I went to plug

I have a Eureka Boss Power Plus and the beater bar is rolling, the belt is turning, but after vacuuming up around the litter box (not a lot of litter), when I turn the vacuum off, the litter, or even household dirt, falls out. When I hold the vacuum back to turn it off so that it doesn't fall on the floor, it's sitting in the cubby where the wheels are. The bag is empty, the hose is not plugged, the hose is securely fitted on both ends of the unit. This vacuum was purchased in July and is being

When pluged, in the unit turns on ( green light illuminates ) and feels warm. Yes, I filled the water container. The unit does not generate any steam. For some reason, I do not have an "operation manual" --- but it doesn't seem to be all that complicated! Have left it plugged in for 25 minutes. A small amount of water came out while just sitting. Then another small amount of water comes out when I push the handle in. I will assume that steam should come out when I push the handle in. Well, it do

Hello, I have a Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum 116.20912006. It won't turn on. On the hose assembly, the end where the hose swivel is, there are 4 metal pins that plug into the canister. One of the pins looks like it broke off. There are only three pins remaining. I assume there should be four pins as there are four holes. Is this the problem and is it fixable? The vacuum is from 2002 so I am not sure a replacement part is even available and at what price. Thank you. Susan susan.eng@

This tells me that the circuit is intact without a broken wire somewhere. I took it all apart carefully and could see nothing broken or out of place. On re-constructing it, it

I have a Kenmore DuraPower Dual Cyclone Action 12 Amp that just randomly stopped right in the middle of vacuuming. I assumed the plug had come out of the wall so I went to check and this wasn't the issue. I tried multiple outlets and that wasn't the issue. I made sure nothing was stuck and there is nothing stuck. Nothing happens when I press the red "ON" button. What could this be? Thanks!
