In front, if of me I have a complete E2 black rainbow vacuum minus the tool this is all you’re going to need to help troubleshoot why your power head not turning on. 


Make sure everything is disconnected.

Grab the hose and plug the hose directly into the canister.


Take the hose handle and plug that directly into the top of the power head.

Check the power if did turn on now you know the issue is not the power head or the hose.

Let’s say the power did not turn on so the next step you’re going to do is take one of the wands and connect that to the power head then connects the hose to the wand.

And then turn the vacuum on and turn the hose handle switch on.

If your power did turn on with one of the wands you now know all three of these items are not the cause.

Next, grab the other wand connect it to the bottom wand and plug the hose on top of that and do the process over again.
