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

I think the switch on the Rainbow E-series electric hose went bad. Is there an easy vway to verify it's the switch?


Answers :

Hi, the only way, is to test that it has power at the swirch with a circuit tester or voltage meeter, or test the plug on the handle where you attach your power head power cord, or Rainbowmate power cord to.
\015\012If it does not get power there, then test that the switch is getting power.
\015\012If you have any more questions let me know. I am a Rainbow seller, and a Rainbow expert also.

Thank you,
Ralph

My Rainbow SE vacuum was working fine until I ran over the edge of a rug and it went in to the nozzle. I immediately switched the vacuum off and proceeded to move the rug. When I tried to turn the Rainbow back on the brush was no longer spinning. I've tried the reset button and checking the nozzle for any debris, there are none. The brush just won't spin.
