Factory OEM motor for the E-2 (e SERIES™) Rainbow system. This motor has been improved in several areas over the years so it will give better performance and durability than your existing motor.

In 1998, Rexair installed two motor versions into the E-2 Rainbow. One was the AME motor and the other was the GSE motor. As time went on, they found that the GSE motor was the superior design and started to install exclusively while discontinuing the AME motor.

In late 2016 a third version motor became available. This is noted as the "E" version and replaces the GSE design. Your original separator and nut will fit all three designs.

*3 year limited warranty (Year 2 and 3 are prorated)

Carbon brush holder kit for the E-2 (e SERIES™) AME design motor.

If you need to replace this, then there is a very high chance that you have an armature issue. An easy way to tell the difference between the AME design and the GSE design is the carbon brush holders. The holders on the AME motor are brass and the GSE motor are plastic.

Please call technical support with any questions you may have.

This part separates air from water and allows clean air to flow out through the exhaust and the water to be transferred back to the water pan.

Separator for the single speed E-2 (e SERIES™) Rainbow. Does not fit the E2 Type 12 two speed system.

Effective July 2000, Rexair has improved this separator to increase performance. Inexpensive upgrade to gain improved cleaning ability.

View second image to compare original separator (R7805) with new design.

If your nut that holds this item in place is brass, then this is the correct part. If you have a white plastic nut, then you need to order item number R12103.

Motor gasket for the early version E-2 (e SERIES™) Rainbow system. Helps seal the motor to the water pan.

Works with the R7284 water pan gasket.

Motor cooling fan for the model E-2 (e SERIES™) version AME motor design. Unless you have the correct equipment to crimp this item into place, we suggest using JB Weld compound. If this part comes off, it will lead to motor failure.

Be sure that you understand what version motor you have. The E-2 (e SERIES™) came with both a version GSE and AME. If you need help, call our technical support or view the schematics.
