How To Use Rainbow Schematics To Identify Parts

A schematic is often the detailed list of the parts and their names or numbers for any given device. The plans show where the parts belong, which makes them easier to identify when they need to be replaced or repaired.

One thing to keep in mind is that the schematic has a fairly limited description on how to use. For information on using the Rainbow and how to troubleshoot them, the owner’s manual is a better choice.

Download A Copy If The Original Is Missing

It is very important to keep a copy of the Rainbow schematics, but if they get lost or damaged, it is possible to obtain them again. The best method is to download a copy of them as a .pdf file for easy reference.

The file is sometimes a better option for those who want to have an easy to scan and search copy on their computer. It also makes a very good backup option in case they need to reference a part while out as it can be viewed on a tablet or phone.

When downloading a new copy, it is important to get the schematic that matches the model that the parts will be for. If the wrong one is used, then the wrong parts will be ordered if they are different.

Locate The Part You Need For Easier Replacements

Whether the schematic is digital or a hard-copy, the first step in finding the right replacement is to first identify the part. Some parts may be easier than others to identify, such as the latch for front of the unit.

In order to identify the part, owners will need to look through the schematic until they find the page that matches where the part came from, or that has a picture of it on it.

After correctly matching the part to the corresponding page, the next step is to take note of what the parts number is. This number will be used when contacting support to obtain a replacement.

One advantage to having the Rainbow vacuum cleaner schematics is that it shows exactly how the unit was put together. This is very important when doing repairs as it shows where everything goes.

Most owners will never need to take the unit itself apart, but they may need to know how to put the brushes or attachments back together, which is covered in the schematics.

For example, the upholstery tool is made up of two separate pieces. If one of the pieces becomes broken, then a replacement can be ordered and it can be reassembled within a few minutes at home.

If In Doubt, Call A Professional For More Help

Larger repairs, such as the motor needing replaced, are best left to the professionals. In most cases, we will make every effort to guide you through the replacement or repair process at home.

If this does not resolve the issue, then we will arrange for the unit to be picked up so that the repairs can be completed. After they are completed, the unit will be shipped back to you as quickly as possible.

While most owners will hopefully never need to reference their Rainbow schematics, they are available for those who need to find the parts number in order to get replacements for their cleaning systems.
