Having problems with your Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum ?
My Rainbow stopped running
\015 I was using the Rainbow and it stopped running. Is there a fuse or reset button. Nothing happens when I turn the switch on.\015
Did you ever find out the problem with your rainbow? Mine did the same thing today- turned on the switch yet nothing happened. Think it needs a new switch???? Do you know how to get canister apart after taking out first screws?
It is a thermal shutt-off switch that tries to safe the motor. Smell indicates that there is somethng wrong with the motor so when it reaches certain temperature it shuts it off. You should not keep vacuuming with it as it may cause other motor components to burn and then repair costs will go up.

My Rainbow e-series will not run. It will turn on, but it sounds like the motor is barely running for a few seconds and then it stops. It will do this over and over.
Remove the water canister and turn the motor on it's side. Try to turn the 'diffuser' device by hand--it should turn freely. If very hard to turn, then one of the motor bearings may have frozen and the plastic case must be removed to access the motor ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
Rainbow e2 starts and stop and will not stay running except on low setting
We have a series e rainbow cleaner. my wife had been using it i turned off and turned the canister up sie down to get the serial number. it would not turn back on.we need a new hose and thats why i was looking for the serial num. it has a rocker switch and the motor will work on low but will not run on the suction side. i have checked the wiring harnesses out as best i could without taken it all apart. im wondering if it may be the switch. it started once and then stopped.
There is one way to verify if it is the switch.It's kind of dangerous though,but not too bad.You need an extra piece of wire,fairly thick.I would use 4 guage myself.Hold it with pliers,just in case it gets hot.Turn the switch on and hold the wire to ... Rainbow Vacuums
My Rainbow E2 has been working great for years now, but recently it has stopped working on the vaccuuming setting, but will still run on the low speed air cleaning setting. I hope it is something as easy as replacing the switch. Would appreciate any tips to determine if that is the issue or possibly something larger. Tks in advance for the info/help.

In my (almost new) Dyson DC31 Animal the rolling brush tends to stop like the bearing was kind of difficult to turn. I opened the side carter and removed the little belt. Without the belt the engine runs regularly. I cleaned the little knots of hairs trapped in the bearing but still the brush runs for a while then stops, tries for a bit then stops again. I even tryed putting a bit of synthetic lubricant with apparently no result. Could it be a defective bearing? Thanks for your help.

I have a VX3000C Broan vacuum and the motor sometimes runs lower and comes back to normal time and time. Plus, now it lamost stops before coming back to normal speed. Can someone explain to me what that might be or if it did happen to someone else? It doesn't stop, but runs at very low speed and come back. It is like if a connection is not made properly. But it does the same at my 3 connections and I did check the one on the vaccuum itselfs.

My Discovery 4210 Roomba will run normally for about 20 minutes on a smooth, wooden floor. It then begins the following sequence: run forward a few inches, turn in a tight counter-clockwise circle a few revolutions, stop, power off a few seconds, power up, repeat cycle from forward run. The sequence can be repeated seemingly endlessly if I don't turn off the power manually. I've replaced the motor, and led revolution sensor system on the left drive wheel. I've blown the dust out of everywhere. A

After using the vacuum for a while it would stop running. After sitting several hours it would run again. Now it won't run at all. It was just a couple of months old and I haven't been able to use it again. It was never used much and we paid good money for what has turned out to be a poor machine. Any suggestion?

If it just quit running, it could be the cord. If you have a meter, you can check it to make sure it isn't broke. Take out the 4 I think, screw from the bottom, the top half should come off, then you get to the switch and the end of the cord. Chec ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
