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

Rainbow e2 2 speed vacuum shuts off after 5 minutes of vacuuming.

\015 Hi. We have a rainbow e2 2 speed vacuum. Recently, our vacuum motor has been turning itself off after about 5 minutes of vacuuming our carpet or rug. The motor will turn back on for a few seconds if we switch the unit off and then back on. The vacuum will stay on for hours in the low speed but not in the vacuum speed. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

2 speed E2 models have a circuit board inside that controls the machine. It sounds like this controller board may be bad. The unfortunate part of this is that the board is not only very expensive, but it is only available from an authorized Rainbow service center.
\015\012 Use caution if you decide to work on this yourself or if you take it to a service center that is not famliar with these models. The circuit board mentioned above is susceptible to damage from static eclectricity discharge. The static you generate from just walking across a carpet could make this board useless. So, if the original problem is not the board you could make the problem worse.

My vacuum cleaner will run for a few minutes and then shuts off. The plug light on the panel blinks. I thought the motor was shut, but after a long time it will turn on again, but again, only for a few minutes and then shuts off again. Any ideas? I bought an Oxygen Ultra a few years ago, but I don't like it nearly as much as the old Epic.

I just got a dirt devil cyclone quick lite for xmas and its wonderful, but in the last three weeks it shuts off by itself after just 10 minutes of vacuuming. I read the manuel and it says it has an automatic shut off when it over heats but 10 minutes? i mean it takes that long just to do one room and I have two floors the indicator on top is always green so I know its not the motor or service but is this the norm with these or is it just mine?

We just purchased a Miele upright s7000. I vacuumed for 5 minutes (literally) and it completely shut down. Waited the suggested 30 minutes for cool down, but nothing happens. Waited another 30 minutes and still nothing. My husband checked for clogs according to the manual but still nothing at all. Is it just a dud?

Rainbow SE I turned the vacuum on and it worked to do one room Then I shut it off to wait until my husband got of his call. I realized that their was cloggage in the vacuum part that vacuums the carpet and unclogged it. I then tried to turn on and it was dead. I have the water filled just above the stick.

The clog may have over heated the motor, usually if you unplug it then after little while, try it again. If it still won't go, does the separator turn easily or is it bound up and won't turn. Take it off and see if the motor will run(without water) ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

My Riccar 1700 will intermittently lose power while vacuuming. I have had the vacuum for 4 years and this is the second time that I have had this problem. The first time the authorized repairperson said the problem was a dirty hepa filter. The second time, the repairperson put on a "pig-tail"(?) and said that he did not have a shut-down problem when he tested the vacuum in the store. I just picked it up from the store today, brought it home and the same problem occurred within minutes.

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

My Hoover Windtunnel Ultra U6425-900 began shutting off after a few minutes of vacuuming. The time interval became shorter and shorter. If I leave it sit a while, it will start again. This does not happen when I used the attachments - only with the floor brushes. The switch has recently been replaced and the whole vacuum serviced by a Hoover dealer about a year ago. I have been told by a local repair shop(not a Hoover dealer) that it is the motor, there is nothing to do other than replace t

After running for 15 minutes, the windtunnel vacuum cleaner shuts off. It will not restart until it has been off for 30 minutes. Could it be overheating for some reason. All of the filters are clean; the dust tank is empty; the belts have no cracks.

It's not necessarily overheating, but the thermal-fuse is definitely tripping and it takes 30 minutes to reset. There are several causes of this (in most common order):\015\012\015\0121. A blockage in the suction system or a full dust tan ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

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?

After I run my vacuum for a couple of minutes it shuts off. If I unplug the vacuum and plug it into a different outlet most of the time it will start working again.
