Getting to Know Your Stair Pro

If you’re wondering why we no longer sell Rainbow Rainmates with our Rainbow vacuums, it’s simply because they are hard to find, and even harder to refurbish. The solution? Come up with a better version that can be sold as brand new! Introducing the Stair Pro. We have versions that fit any model of Rainbow vacuum, as well as versions that will fit many other vacuums!

 

 

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. 

 

Instructions

 

For the Stair Pro to fit the E series, SE, or PN2 models you will need the mini extension wand and adaptor cord.

 

Locate the button lock on the mini extension wand and insert that end into the Stair Pro. You will hear it lock into place.

 

Then take the adapter cord, find the female end, and plug that into the Stair Pro. You may notice that the cord does not go on all the way – that is not a problem! It will still work.

 

Now, take your main hose and insert it into the mini extension wand.

 

Take the male end of the adaptor cord and plug it in to the wand. If you notice the cord falling off you can try carefully pulling the prongs apart with a pair of needle nose pliers.

Now you’re ready to turn it on!

 

If you own a Rainbow E2 2-speed you will not need any adaptor cords or extension pieces! Simply slide the Stair Pro onto the end of the extension wand and you will hear it click into place.

 

However, you will notice there’s still a large gap between the prongs and the plug. That means you need to keep pushing it on! You may need to push down the button lock to get it to keep going.

 

You will now notice that there’s a very small gap between the Stair Pro and the plastic of the extension wand. You’re ready to go!

Care and Maintenance for Prolux Upright Vacuums 

Owning any vacuum requires maintenance. At GreatVacs we understand the importance of understanding how to properly maintain your vacuum. In this video, we go over some basic maintenance tips to keep your Prolux Upright vacuum in tip-top shape. This will work on any Prolux upright vacuum cleaner model.

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. 

 

Instructions

 

Start by removing the front cover.

 

To remove the bag you will need to grab the cardboard piece with your hand and pull straight off. To replace the bag with a new one, just reverse the process! Grab the cardboard and push straight on.

 

To check the pre-motor HEPA filter you can just pull it straight out. When inserting a new filter, be sure to slide it straight on both tracks. It should slide in easily with no resistance.

 

To check and/or replace the post-motor filter you will need to lay your vacuum cleaner down. There is a sliding mechanism on the side that you need to slide “up” to unlock the cover. You will then be able to pull the cover up and off to access the filter.

 

To replace the cover after switching out the filter just insert the peg on one side into the slot, lower the cover into place, and slide the lock back down.

If you need to remove or clean your brush roll, we have made a video specifically for that that you can watch >>> here!
