Rainbow d4c How do you take apart the rainbow d4c to change the switch

Answers :

All four sides of the inner shell in the top can be pushed in to remove inner shell. I tried to take my switch out and gave up after several attempts at pinching the plastic tabs inward that hold it to the case. even with all four tabs pushed in the switch didnt want to push all the way out.
Take off water tank, remove the screws to separate the top from the bottom, take out the screws inside the top and take out the plastic shell and the switch will be there.
