This Rainbow D4 vacuum unit was professionally serviced. That includes taking Rainbow D4 unit and the nozzle completely apart; inspecting all parts of body and the motor and washing all plastic parts to ensure that you are not getting any dirt from previous owner house (we do not wash inside of the hose though). Also it gets new bearings. It is done to every Rainbow D4 no matter what condition we got it in.

Rainbow D4 vacuum cleaner model (1986 - 1991)
50 year anniversary joining Rexair, Inc. was celebrated with launching a new Rainbow D4 model cleaning system. Talking about main motor unit this was fairly "different animal " but as far as the rest of it - pretty much the same.
Rainbow D4 vacuum power unit Motor unit:
Gets the on/off switch on the top (makes sense - as far from the water as it gets...). Looses one of the fan blades and fan casing now is plastic. This design (with minor changes) remains the same for about 12 years. All parts are still available for this model today and you should be able to get it serviced in nearly every bigger vacuum shop. Rainbow parts are a bit pricey comparing to other brands within the industry but D4 parts are still within the "affordable" range if you want to get it fixed. It is a good idea not to wait till motor seizes. When this happens motor may burn and it is definitely going to be much harder to take apart and the repair may get pretty expensive. We would recommend to take it in to a professional repairman when you hear a grinding sound while motor is winding down after you turn the it off . This is an indicator that one or more bearings are dry (the most likely lower one) and it is a matter of a few months before it will stop. For a while D4's had the same plastic separators as later D3 vacuums and brass nut was tapered so it would center the separator on the shaft. Later this design was abandoned and separator had vertical slots and separator nut surface pressing against the separator become flat. If your Rainbow motor has excessive vibration - try reinstalling the separator a few times - sometimes it may balance system get rid of the vibration.
Rainbow D4 vacuum cleaner power nozzle Nozzle:
Not much different from D3 design. Darker plastic to match new main unit color. Same nozzle motor and everything else inside. Slightly different clear lenses on the top.
Rainbow D4 hoses
Extension pipe
Hose and attachments:
Still two wet/attachment hoses - one for attachments and another one to be used with carpet nozzle. Had 1 long extension pipe for carpet nozzle and 4 short ones. One of the short wands were to be used in conjunction with long nozzle wand and the rest of the wands (Top curved, Middle straight and bottom curved) were to be used with attachments. Same basic attachments.
