Rainbow Vacuum Hose Falling Off?

One question that we get quite a bit is “Why does my hose keep coming off of my Rainbow E series vacuum cleaner?” To answer this, here’s a video with a few helpful tips and tricks on how to ensure that the hose is connected correctly and how to keep it connected correctly while you’re using your vacuum!


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

Remove the hose and take a look at the end that connects to the vacuum. You will see two metal prongs - if there is anything blocking the prongs, or if they’re bent, it will cause a bad connection and he vacuum light will probably turn on.

 

The two grey tabs you see on the hose actually secure it to the vacuum cleaner, so if either of the tabs are broken or damaged that could also cause a bad connection and cause the light to turn on as well.

 

When you plug in the hose, you’ll want to lift up the little flap and that opens the electrical port.

 

Insert the hose and firmly press it into place. You should see both grey tabs lock into place and you will probably hear it as well. You can try applying firm pressure to both sides alternately to make sure the latches engage.

 

Another thing to check are the two slots on the vacuum. If these are damaged or broken that could be part of the problem. If they are broken send us an email at service@greatvacs.com, including pictures if possible, and we can help you get it fixed!

How to Diagnose a Clog On Any Prolux Upright Model

Does your Prolux Upright model have poor suction? Is your brushroll spitting dirt back out on your clean floors? If you answered yes... you may have a clog. In the following short video we show you how to diagnose where the clog may be located at.

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. 

 

Supplies

  • Phillips head screwdriver

 

Instructions

 

Plug your vacuum in and turn it on. Check the suction at the back by opening the small door and feeling for the air flow.

 

 

If that's good take the hose off and check the suction at the end.

 

 

If the hose has good suction, attach the wand and test that as well.

If the suction is poor in any of those areas you know that that’s where the clog is! I've you've found the clog you should be able to remove it.

 

 

If you’ve check all of those areas and haven’t found a clog, but the suction is still poor, you can check one final area: the fill tube on the side that connects the main wand to the power head.

 

To check for a clog here you’ll want to press the foot pedal and then turn the vacuum upside down. You can then remove the two screws from the metal bottom plate and remove it.

 

This will allow you to check this full tube and remove any clogs.

If you’ve checked all of these potential clog locations and the suction is still poor or the brush roll is spitting dust back out go ahead an email us at service@greatvacs.com and we can help you troubleshoot!
