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

Rainbow E series Model E2 will not start up!

\015 Once in a while it will make a real faint noise the separator spins\015\012very easy. I now have the vacuum taken apart with the motor visible\015\012trying to see if it is something in there! i just received this vacuum\015\012would love to get it up and running! Any help would be greatly\015\012appreciated! thanks\015

Answers :

Unfortunately that large beige box that was resting on top of the motor is the computer that controls the 2 speed function of the vac.
\015\012The first thing to check is motor it's self, there are 2 brush 'boxy things' at right angles to the armature (the part of the motor that spins). Check those and make sure that the brushes are evenly worn and in contact with the motor. Next see of there are burn marks on the motor itself - it should be copper in color.
\015\012If this looks fine, sorry to say, the computer might be the issue ... not cheap.
\015\012Hope this helps
\015\012Let us know, might have other ideas

The belt on my vacuum cleaner model 6596 bissel powerforce bagless turbo keeps breaking. As soon as I put on a new belt and start it up the belt snaps. It is the durabelt meant for this vacuum model. Also, my son has been having the same problem with his. He has the same model and same belt. This problem is occurring even after a thourough cleaning.

I would guess you aren't centering the belt correctly, thus it's edge is caught between the brush and another solid object, causing the breakage.\015\012When you get the belt on the the brush and the brush back in place, turn the brush a few ti ... Bissell 6596 Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have a Craftman 5hp snowthrower model 53688501 that will not start. It will fire with gas down sparkplug hole, but runs only untill that gas is burned up. Fuel is present at carb, but I noticed that there are two brass fittings on each side of the carb for vacume lines or something, and they have no lines connected to them. Did I lose the lines that should be connected? Or do I have some other problem. The unit is 4 years old and has the Briggs and Stratton eng model 9A413-0202-E1

This sounds like the carburetor needs disassembled and cleaned. This happens over time and the tiny orifices plug up. Usually from letting gas set in them for extended periods of time and it gums up. If you are not familiar with them, I would take ... Craftsman Vacuums
