How to Attach Tools to Your Rainbow Vacuum

In this video Kyle shows us how to set up tools on any model of Rainbow vacuum. From floor tools to tool wands, dusters, and upholstery tools, he goes over them all!

 

 

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

Note: This method works for attaching wands and tools to both the main hose and the tool hose.

 

There are two tool wands – straight and curved. If you have an E-series they will have button locks.

 

To attach the straight tool wand, simply line up the button lock on the main hose with the hole on the wand. Press down the button lock as you insert the hose end and it will snap into place. The tools may have button locks as well.

 

To remove a tool you just press down the button lock as you pull the tool and wand apart.

 

You can attach the curved wand to the straight wand the same way – line up the button lock and press down as you push the two wands together.

 

The curved wand is designed to work with the floor tool. The floor tool has two slots inside the neck that need to be lined up with the two nubs on the curved wand. Once the floor tool is on you need to twist it to lock it into place.

You can still attach other tools to the curved wand, however they will not be securely attached and may come loose.

How to Unclog a Rainbow Vacuum 

If you manage to clog your Rainbow vacuum, and can’t seem to get the blockage loose, follow these quick tips to easily unclog your vacuum, and get back to cleaning!

 

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

  • Rainbow vacuum cleaner
  • Clogged Rainbow vacuum hose
  • Possibly a cleaning rag

 

Instructions

 

Start by taking the hose handle and inserting it into the Rainbow vacuum. Since these vacuum cleaners are known for their excellent suction a lot of times you can use it to clear the clog.

 

If that doesn’t work there’s another trick to try. Turn your Rainbow vacuum around and remove the exhaust cover.

 

Then take your hose and plug it in. This method forces air out through the hose and can sometimes dislodge the clog.

 

You can even insert the handle into the front so that it will be pushing air through one end and pulling it out from the other!

 

If that didn’t work, take your rag and wrap it around the handle as shown here.

 

This will create more of a seal and may help remove the clog.

 

If none of those methods work, there are a few “old-fashioned” tricks you can use.

The first is to bend a wire coat hanger straight and insert it into one of the ends of the hose. Be careful not to puncture the hose!

Lastly, you can take a broom and insert the handle into the hose. This may dislodge the clog, or at least loosen it enough that the Rainbow vacuum can suction it out.
