Question about Shop Vac 925-13 Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
I have a shop vac that I was using and it just stopped. It is a 90L400 I can't find my manual so can you please advise & let me know where I can view a manual for troubleshooting. Your site prompted me to put the wrong type of shop vac. The model # is as listed in this e-mail.
I had the same problem with the same model. Turned out to be the thermal fuse on the motor housing, between the switch and the windings. Took it apart and replaced the melted solder with 14 guage copper wire. Works fine! No thermal protection but I don't use it for long at a time anyway. Check the switch for continuity, if good then check the thermal fuse for continuity. If good, it's the motor.

It sounds like the power unit has gone bad. I had the same thing happen and called Shop Vac (570) 326-3557. Since it was still under the 3 year warranty, they sent a replacement unit.

Sounds like it might be the switch that has went bad. I was able to find the part at https://www.mouser.com. The part is made by CW part number GRS-4021. The cost $3.25 US. This would be a cheaper alternative then buy the whole power unit which would cost as much as the Shop Vac cost new. Does require a little know how or common sense and does not feel leary about disassembly a electrical device.
