I've been going to a certain community garage sale for the past four years, and I don't always find stuff. This year, I lucked out. I found this Rainbow E2 for $60. They originally wanted $125 and marked it down to $75 right before I went there. I offered $60 and they accepted. It has the Rainmate and all the owner's manuals. Was this too good to be true? Almost. The fans are dirty and need to be cleaned. The motor may need to be serviced. The brushroll, exhaust cover, and hepa filter need to be replaced. I already ordered the parts. It also came with some, but not all of the standard accessories. I can't quite figure out how to get the top cover off of the powerhead. Any thoughts?

"top cover off of the powerhead"

Great find!This should be the powerhead that you first gently pry rear wheel axles away from nozzle with flat screwdriver and then release tab from slot that will now be visible.
Happy Vacuuming(or Dust Drowning)
