This is the best vacuum cleaner ever made. My parents have had this machine for over 20 years. Basically I grew up using this vacuum cleaner. Knowing that this is a very well made product I decided to purchase a refurbished one on Overstock. There are a couple of reasons I went this route. First, it's more affordable (new ~$XXXX), and second I would never be able to stand a home visit from one of the obnoxious rainbow dealers. They are truly unbearable. So this was a win-win for us. There are a couple of issues we encountered with the unit we received: a metal wand was bent and had to be replaced (already received from Overstock) and one hose attachment was damaged (replacement in progress). Love this machine and was dreaming of one for a long time. It's a must for any pet owner. I never write reviews (always read them), but I do feel very strongly about the incredible quality of this product. $$ well spent. FOR SURE
I would definitely buy again. I have only bought smaller ticket items, like work safety shoes, from Overstock. This is my first larger dollar purchase. I bought a refurbished item from Overstock because I had confidence that if something were to go wrong with anything that it would be remedied.

This is my second Rainbow Vacuum, so I am very familiar with them before I bought this one. It was because I was well pleased that I immediately started looking for a new one when my old one was ruined by carelessness. The tools and attachments were all there and in perfect condition. The only thing missing was the worenty and instruction manual.

I've owed a refurbished Rainbow vacuum before, so I knew what to expect. They do a wonderful job of cleaning. The only thing I found wrong with the vacuum I received was with the hose connection. The snap/button latch at the top of the hose for the power head does not connect properly to the handle.
I have had this for less than 6 months and every signal hose assemble has come apart and won't stay together I've had to duct tape most and that still doesn't fix the problems. Also the major piece of the machine has broke which connects the major unit to the power head that connects together to actually do the vacuuming. Would not ever recommend overstock to purchase anything 6 months and out $XXX bucks should have known
We opened our "refurbished" Rainbow Vacuum cleaner and found MANY things that were disappointing. The metal tubes to the power nozzle were bent and would not connect. This was not a shipping mishap as the tubes were wrapped and inside main package. Also, the hose connection to the main part of the vacuum did not fit correctly - it was very loose. It obviously did not belong to this particular model. My old rainbow hose snapped in correctly to our "refurbished" machine so this was definitely a mistake on someone's part. No warranty book or vacuum information was included. Very, very disappointed with the whole experience.
I have owned a Rainbow for 20 years. The last one served me well but would need a major overhaul or I was looking at $* for a new one. This refurbished unit was a good deal. Though this is a older model and is not as refined as the lastest models it is still a work horse and stands head and shoulders above other vacuums. I would purchase it again and again.
The rainbow is huge and clunky, not convenient or at all pleasant to use and is immensely overpriced. Mine broke after 4 months and my only options to have it repaired are to drive an hour and a half, leave it, pay for the repairs and drive back to pick it up. Mind you this was a 2000 vacuum, you would think the warranty and service would be a little better. The rainbow sales people are pushy and totally unhelpful after you purchase the product. They get you to purchase the product by claiming you won't ever have to pay for it b/c you can do home visits with them where they are pushy to your friends and family to make a sale. One of my friends who had a chihuahua honestly didn't need the vacuum b/c the dog barely shed and in front of her the salesperson said 'this is why I only allow customers to use one single lady on their list of ten people, they never buy'. Mind you I was a single lady who bought from that salesperson. I can't say anything good about this company or this product. STAY AWAY STAY AWAY STAY AWAY. Biggest regret ever. It now sits broken in my attic unused.
