Having problems with your Rainbow Vacuums ?

We need to know how to get the cover off the canister so we can access where the hoses go into the canister.

Answers :

\015\012Before getting down to the specifics of motors, first unplug your vacuum cleaner to avoid injury such as electric shock. Next, detach the hoses. The filter and bag are the next things to be removed and they are easily accessed by pressing in some plastic tabs or untwisting a simple lock on the back cover. What is left unexposed is the motor and it typically has a screwed-in cover encasing it for protection.

Using a screwdriver, carefully remove the screws holding the canister motor cover on. Usually, the power switch assembly is exposed first. This assembly is sometimes mounted onto the motor cover plate itself with screws. Remove these screws and set aside the switch assembly to expose the motor cover plate. Again, screws are likely holding this cover plate in place, so they must be removed as well. Now the canister vacuum motor is exposed. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

I want to open a Hoover S3825 Elite Cyclonic Vacuum to see if I can repair or replace the cord reel assembly. Currently the reel slowly draws the cord back into the canister once it is pulled out. I found the mounting screws under the rear wheels once I removed the hub but I do not know how to remove the rear wheels, everything is plastic. 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

How do I gain access to the motor of an Electrolux 2000 canister vacuum. The air intake on the motor must be partially blocked as there is a loss of suction and the motor makes that high pitched whine like it does when you cover the hose with your hand

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

No suction Just received my refurb. dyson animal bagless. Finally figured out how to get it all together, turned it on and there is no suction coming up thru the beater bar. The hair is just collecting around the bar and not going up into the canister. It appears all the suction is going thru the open red end of the attachment hose, which has a vented cover piece. Am I missing a piece or is there a switch to turn of the attachment suction?

So the red hose isn't connected to a part on the vaccum so like it is connected to the connester but not to an opening just above the beater bar, this is the only idea i can supply you with. good luck, maybe i got lucky and helped you out. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
