Stryker, the most common causes of refusing food with a rainbow are improper conditions (often temps), shed, stress, and illness.

For conditions, what are your temps and humidity? The former should be a gradient of 72F to 82F (ish), and the latter should be over 90%.

For shed, I'm guessing it is not the case.

For stress, has anything changed since the snake last ate? New location, different lighting, new house pet, higher foot traffic, etc?

We'll hope illness is not the issue.

Also, what was the animal formerly eating?
