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

Loud rainbow and water leaking

\015 My raibow Eseries vacuum was running very loud and had a burning smell. I took it to the repair shop and they said it needed a new motor. My husband purchased and replaced the motor and the circular filter inside. It is still running loud now and water is coming out of the back and leaking a little from where the canister meets the foam seal inside. My separator piece has two thin vent pieces broken off and missing. Could this be the reason for the water leaking and for the loud sound? Or could it be something else?\015

Answers :

If pieces are missing or broken I would try and replace the piece. You can usually get these items cheap on Ebay.

I have a hayward 1HP superpump with an Ao Smith UST 1102 motor on it. Last year I had a leak in the pump, and I believe I got some water in the bearings of the motor. Over the winter I replaced all the seals in the pump, and have no leaks this year, but the pump is sounding pretty loud since opening the pool this year. I have (2) fold question: (1)I can not find any information on the where I can find a replacement bearing for this pump. (2) I can not find a procedure on HOW to go about

Rainbow Vacuum, about 5 yrs old (bought new, no issues prior) - my 6yr old tipped it on it's side while water was in basin. Now when I turn the power on, it makes a very loud sound in the motor and you can feel the vibration on the floor. The suction still works and basin still catches dirt - the noise is just so loud and I'm not sure if I should continue use or how to fix -?


Although a wet/dry vacuum, it cannot tolerate water in the motor. Water will cause the motor to short out, which will cause the motor to act/sound like yours does now, if it continues working at all.\015\012To prevent additional problems, the ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

We have a Bissell Proheat 2X (model 8920). The problem we are having is when water/soap is initially released (all settings) it continues to leak out the front water spray nozzles unit the water containers are empty. The vacuum works but can't keep up with the continuous water leaking out. Do you have any idea what is sticking open to allow the continued release of water when the machine is running? Thanks Rick

My kids were in charge of the Rainbow, but they moved out. My husband surprised me by cleaning a dirty rug. Neither of us know how to use the Rainbow, but I at least know that you're supposed to use water. Will it damage my Rainbow that he did not use any water when he vacuumed?


Your Rainbow might have been damaged. It would be advisable to take the machine to a shop and have them do a cleaning on it. The water is the filter, and there is a separator between the water and the motor. The separator only prevents the water f ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
