Question about Shop Vac Vacuums
If by stopped working you mean that it no longer has any suction, then check the hose for a clog and also clean all the filters.
If you mean that it literally stopped running, then the most common cause is a faulty switch. If the machine is still under warranty, contact Shop Vac for a replacement motor, Switches for shop vacs are not available, only replacement motors. If the machine is not under warranty you can either replace the motor or the whole machine.
