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

E series How did you take your rainbow e series apart? Do you have a manual? I've got a few pieces off mine but can't see where any other screws are to completly take apart to be able to look at motor. Thanks Kelly


Answers :

The clear lenses on either side of the top part of the E-series Rainbow are removable. If you look at the each lens you will see two sections on the top edge of each lens that looks like this |___| |___| about 1 1/2 inches in from each end. Put a small screwdriver in the middle of each one of these (I used 2 screwdrivers at once) and pry out. The clips will come undone and you can remove the lens this way, exposing the screws which hold the motor cover on. On my E-2, there were 4 screws under here, and once I removed them, the top came right off.
I don't have the manual. I never could get to the actual motor. I just cleaned it out and changed the belt and it has been working fine ever since.

My Hoover SteamVac has been doing a wonderful job but in two instances, after emptying the dirty water and reattaching the reservoir, the machine has lost suction. The first time I was able to make it work again after taking it apart and putting it back together about 10 times. I don't know what I did that fixed it but as long as it worked again, I was happy. But it's happened again and I can't get it to vacuum. I can see that it isn't clogged. Can you please help me????

Shopvac 90L400 quit working (4 years old). Thought the switch was bad but not the problem. I read that there is a fuse link in the motor that frequently burns up. I tried to take motor apart but not sure of the process. I was able to get to the motor but cannot pull it out of the armature. It appears I have to take the aluminum blower unit off the shaft (it appears to be pressed on with a retaining washer). Do I have to take it off to pull the shaft and motor assembly out? Is that where the fuse

The front screws are under the front caster wheels and I think I need to take a screwdriver and pry off the little cylinder wheel to get to them by rotating
