How to Turn Your Rainbow Vacuum into a Blowing Machine! 

Did you know Rainbow Vacuums can do more than just vacuuming? Here is a video to show you how to get a Rainbow to blow air out through the hose!

Important Safety Tips

  • Always make sure your machine is unplugged and the power button is turned off, before servicing your vacuum.
  • Always make sure your hands are dry and free from moisture before servicing your machine.
  • Be sure to wear gloves when servicing your machine to prevent any cuts or scrapes.
  • If you are uncomfortable working on your vacuum, please don’t hesitate to contact us at and we can help you through the process or you can send it into us to fix it for you. 


The first thing you want to do is take the cover plate off the back of the vacuum cleaner.

Next, take your hose and attach it to the back. You should see and hear it lock into place if you lined up the tabs correctly. Put firm pressure on one side and then the next to ensure that it is properly latched.

Now it’s ready to blow and inflate!

To get your SE and D4 models to blow and inflate, take the hose off the front side and turn your vacuum around.

Take the exhaust cap off and attach your hose just like you would on the front. Sometimes pressing down on the latch button will help it lock in.

Your vacuum cleaner is now ready to blow!
