D4 Rainbow Vacuum Assembly

First time Rainbow Buyer? Not sure how your Rainbow vacuum cleaner goes together? In this quick video, we will show you how easy it is to get your Rainbow D4 all assembled and ready to clean.

 

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

 

In this video we have a Rainbow D4 model, a telescoping extendable wand, a hose, and a D4 power head.

 

We also have cord clips, which we’ll go over later.

 

The main difference between the SE and the D4 is that the D4 power head has a longer cord and plugs into the canister, while the SE’s power cord is on the hose.

 

Unwind the cord and then insert the telescoping wand into the power head.

 

Plug the hose into the canister and plug the other end into the wand.

 

You’ll notice that there are cord clip guides on the back of the wand. This lets you clean up the cord.

 

Go ahead and plug the power cord into the canister and grab the cord clips that we mentioned in the beginning. Use these clips as you wind the cord around the hose. Once the cord is neatly tucked against the hose you’re all set!

How to Keep Your Rainbow 2 Prong Cord from Falling Out

There you are… Vacuuming your home and all sudden your power head turns off. You look down and there it lies, the 2-prong cord connection. You plug it back in and seconds later it falls out again. Out of frustration you don’t know what to do. However, here at Great Vacs were all about helping people. So, in this quick video we will show you a quick trick to keep your Rainbow 2 prong cord connection from falling out.

 

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.

Tools

  • Needle nose pliers

 

Instructions

 

The first things you need to do are unplug the two-prong connection and unhook the hose.

 

Take your needle nose pliers and bend the prongs out slightly.

 

Now hook your hose back up and plug the two-prong connection back in.

 

Tug on the cord to see if it falls out. If it still falls out try bending the prongs a little more. If it’s snug then you’re good to go!

How to Test Your Rainbow Vacuum Power Head

Is your Rainbow Vacuum Power Head not working like it should? Try this simple troubleshooting trick to see if the problem actually is your power head.

 

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

 

We are starting with the SE power head. Remember that warning to make sure your vacuum is turned off and unplugged when you service it? Well, this time you’ll actually need to plug it in! Then, take your two-prong connector and plug it in to the canister itself.

 

Flip the power head over and turn your vacuum on. In our video the power head does turn on. If your power head turns on when it’s plugged directly into the vacuum, the problem is likely in the hose.

If your power head didn’t turn on it could be a problem with the two-prong connection or something else within the power head. In that case send us an email to service@greatvacs.com with details about your problem and we can help!

 

The E series is the same process. Take the power head cord and plug it in to the canister. Then flip the power head over and turn the vacuum on.
