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

Rainbow E2 2 speed vacuum motor whines at startup

\015 I purchased a ''9 month old'' rainbow E2 vacuum with a 2 speed motor. When I turn it on the motor whines until it gets up to speed. Is this just the way these machines sound?\015

Answers :

I used to sell rainbow vacuums and this latest 2 speed model does whine when it is first turned on. So you definately have nothing to worry about. I believe this is due to the fact that this motor is much more powerful than in the previous 1 speed E series model. I finally just purchased a 2 speed model after many many years of wanting one. Good luck to ya and enjoy your clean house!

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

Vacuum cleaner We have a panasonic MC-E47electronic which seems dead. It has a speed control which we nearly always had on full anyway.
