Removing the Dirt Receptacle Pail
We inherited a CV554, CV556, (or) CV570 central cleaning system with our 2006-built home upon purchase. I believe it may never have had the dirt receptacle pail emptied. I tried, but cannot remove the pail. The instructions, page 3, of the Homeowner's Operating Instructions state that one must unclasp and remove the lower receptacle from the motor housing. I have had no trouble finding, and unclasping said clasps. However, the physical pail will not come off. Does it need to be unscrewed? pulled? pried? beaten? or signed up for Obamacare? I have tried a few of the first strategies, within what I considered to be a reasonable amount of force, short of knocking it from the mounting, and received no indication of any degree of success. I am unable to determine whether the actual separation takes place above or below the circumferential black rubber seal ring. Can you please help?
In the process above described, I encountered and was perplexed by the function of the "convenience outlet." Convenient for what? The provided materials on installation and operation make only a naming reference in a diagram. I opened it, and used a thumb to extract the fluff and dirt present, and still wonder why it exists.
