Question about Rainbow 75th Anniversary Canister Vacuum
I just got a used Rainbow E series. I was trying to remove the separator to clean it (like told to do in owners manual). I can get the nut off the bolt but can't remove the separator from the unit. Any suggestions?
Try spraying something like WD40 around the shaft, then if you have to, use 2 small flat blades that will fit under the edge of the separator and keep working it until it pops loose. It is just crude and calcium from water that is keeping it on.

I solved this problem by using a paint can opener, using a gentle prying motion working my way around the separator. This was on a used vacuum I purchased which was quite dirty. I think that may have contributed to it being stuck.
