Question about Shop Vac Vacuums

1 Answer

Lost Part I have a 6.5 hp 18 gallon shop vac ultra pro. There is a part that goes into the inside of the tank and screws into the collection hose that attaches it to the tank. This part accidentally got thrown away when someone dumped it and now I cannot attach the hose to use the vacuum. Can this part be purchased separately?

Genie shop vac 6 gallon 2.0 is blowing air out of the hose and not sucking


Lots of shop vacs have an exhaust.....which the hose can be hooked up to for blowing stuff.... sounds like you might have the hose plugged into the exhaust.... look for another hole on the side of the bucket part. .... plug the hose in there.

6.0 hp 12 Gallon Shop-Vac 'exploding'


Those type of vacuums are designed for light duty work around homes anyways. For commercial industrial work as you are doing you need a sump pump. We used to drop one in a 5 gallon (20 liter) pail, drill holes in the pail and suspend from a rope. (you can put screen around the pail covering the holes if needed too). Use a stiff hose to expell the water. You can change to a flat hose like a pool waste water hose or fire hose after the water is out of the trench.

Ridgid 16.5 gallon motor running with no suction


When you use the shop vac for cleaning up water you must remove the filter.

The filter is for dust particles not for water
I would replace your filter and dump the water out from the shop vac, Also after each time you vacuum up water dump it out of shop vac.

I hope this helped you happy new year!

Need new switch for Shopvac QSP Pro 10 gallon unit


I just went through the same problem with a Shop Vac. The switch is easy to replace but not easy to find. After removing the switch, I found a match made by Sigma Switches. They directed me to contact a local RV dealer and look in either their Coast Supply or Stag/Parkway Supply catalogs for the appropriate switch (an H2-28 in my case for a QPL45 Shop Vac). After ordering the switch and $5 later, it snaps in like the original with no problems. Certainly beats $70 for a whole new motor assembly.

I have a 6 gallon shop wet or dry vac. The dust and dirt comes out around the base of the motor fin, not around the tank top. Now what? Oh I lost the filter around the drum that holds the ball, so I wrapped a rag around it and made it secure. Respectively: TOM

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The bag is not going to do the job as well as the filter around the drum that hold the ball. The filter that goes under the motor does a lot of the filtering or you would have to do some type of cage filter then a foam filter and then a paper bag, I f you have a cartridge filter then the paper bag can go over the cartridge filter , B4 you do anything – id you have some type of compressor – use it to blow out the dust and dirt out of the motor, then buy a cartridge filter and then a paper bad with a rubber band to hold it on. This will do the best filtering . Check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer and bring in the top of your shop vac so that they can fix a proper cartridge / paper bag filter – or the cage frame with a foam filter with a paper bag. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
