Rainbow D4C Main Power Switch
This switch works with all D4C Rainbow systems. If you have a switch that has 6 holes where the wires push in, please read information below on how to wire this design switch.
Factory OEM switch for the D4C SE (Special Edition) and D4C model Rainbow. This switch first came as pictured in the early version D4C that came out in 1986. Rexair then changed to a new design switch that did not have wires attached. The new version had six holes that you would stick the wires into. Inside each hole was a spring loaded catch that held the wires in place.
Over time, the factory found that this was an inferior design and went back to the four wire system. If you have the previous design that has six holes, below is how you connect the four wire system.
- One black wire from the switch and one black wire from the power cord makes a double connection.
- One black wire from the switch and one white wire from the power cord makes the second double connection.
- One blue wire from the switch and one black wire from the field and one wire from power nozzle receptacle makes the first triple connection.
- One blue wire from the switch and one black wire from the field and one wire from power nozzle receptacle makes the second triple connection.
There is no hot and neutral in this application.

"Great direct fit part, fairly expensive ,too bad these switches only last 6 years for the occasional use they get which is why I bought 2 of them. "

"Perfect replacement part. My sweeper had the 6 wire switch, this one is the 4 wire switch, just followed the wiring diagram from this website and had my sweeper running again. Took longer to get sweeper apart than it was to install switch. "
