Question about Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
When using the vaccuum within 60 seconds you literally have to leave the room as the entire house smells like human waste. I initially thought it was the belt but the smell continues without the powerhead attached and just the metal nozzle. The water is fresh, the brush is clean and it sounds like normal. I would be greatful for any info!!

You have to carefully remove the clear lenses that hold the labels in place on either side of the canister to get at the inner filter. I used two very small (about 1/8 in wide) screwdrivers at the bottom of each lens about 1 1/2 inches in from either side to pop it out. The lenses have 2 prongs on each side of the clip that extend into the vacuum about 1/2 inch, so be careful not to break them off when removing the lens.

Get a new hepa filter.
It is at the back side of it, behind that rectangular cover, where the exhaust cover is. It either snaps off with two plastic tabs on the bottom of it, or has two screws on the bottom of it, and two screws behind the cord holder taps thing. If it is that kind, the cord holder tabs thing, snaps off with a flat head screw driver on either side of it. You will see the little slots on it, if it is the kind with the screws on the filter cover. Two screws behind the cord holder tabs thing, towards the top of the filter cover, and two on the bottom of the filter cover.
Always clean your water separator with a tooth brush, or Rainbow separator cleaning brush. If it has it, it is by the water separator in a special slot for it, rite there by the water separator. If not, use a tooth brush. They are just alike. The separator nut, is a half inch, or 13 milimeter size of a nut.
