Loud Motor on Rainbow E2 2 Speed Vacuum?

If you’ve purchased a Rainbow E2 2 Speed Gold, Blue, or Black model, and it seems to sound a little funny, watch this video to determine whether something’s wrong with your vacuum. These newer models of Rainbow vacuums have a brushless 2 stage motor in them that sounds a little different than you might be used to. So watch this video before you take it back!

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 service@greatvacs.com and we can help you through the process or you can send it into us to fix it for you. 


You will need to watch the video with sound to hear the difference between a good Rainbow E2 2 Speed vacuum cleaner and one with a bad motor! These clips below start right at the sounds in question.

This first vacuum is in great condition and has a nice, powerful motor.

Now compare that to this other Rainbow vacuum that needs to be refurbished. Hear that difference? If your vacuum sounds like this it either has a bad motor, or the motor is going bad. Contact us at service@greatvacs.com with info about your Rainbow vacuum and we can help you get it fixed!
