soonds to me like you need to check all of the removeable port inlets. Check for debris. what we find quite often, especially with pet owners, is that the collection tank, even after dumping is plugged with fine particulates and or pet hair lodged up high inthe cones. try tapping your dirt cup on the floor not too hard, and then dump the dirt. if you have access to a air compressor, or a canister vac w/ a blower port, blowing the tank out quite often will give good results.
If you want to get water that's in your vacuum, OUT of your vacuum, you simply need to remove the top and dump the water out. As far as I know, the Shop-Vac 962-16-00 won't "pump out" any water that's in it.
If you want to pump water from one place to another (for example, your basement to your backyard), this vacuum doesn't pump water "through" itself (like a sump pump) - it will, however, **** water up. You just need to dump it out once the vacuum is full.
ok . i may have read you post wrong but i think you want the vacuum to empty itself ? i never heard of any vacuum emptying itself ......... the water or dirt goes into the canaster . when full remove the top and dump the bin . some than a drain plug you take out when your over a floor drain or outside ........ if this answer helped please rate 3 or 4 this high rateing will keep me in the paid answer department thanks you ..........if i misunderstood your post i am sorry , just leave a comment i will get it and try to help
make sure the filters in the bottom are clean, then remove the canister and you will need to clean it thouroughly, pay close attention to the upper section inside where the "cones" come togetheri have read that they are prone to clog up here and lose suction, google dyson suction loss or how to clean a dyson ect...pay attention to getting the rod that releases the bottom to dump back in the correct place or it will not work right. a few write ups tell about this!
I've done that.
There is a stem that runs down the center of the cyclone that releases the bottom. You didn't get that stem back in place. The only thing you can do is pry it open, hope is doesn't break, and put that cyclone back together correctly.
I've never broke one, but I had to pull pretty hard. Thought I was going to.
Buckaboo, you say the debris no longer collects in the cup? Does that mean you don't have suction as well?
The brushroll has it's own motor so the brushes spinning doesn't necessarily mean there's not a problem with the wiring, the switch, or the motor.
Assuming you haven't inadvertantly set the selector switch to floor when you wanted to use the hose or vice versa, try the following.
Start with the motor/impeller first. Take the dust canister off and turn the vacuum on. It doesn't matter if you turn on the brushroll or not as you're looking for suction.
With the vacuum on feel for exhaust out the front of the motor (by the secondary handle on the bottom. Also put your hand over the area where the dust canister sits. You should feel strong exhaust and suction respectively.
If not, then you should take it in to a technician as going any further requires disassembly.
If you feel there's enough suction, then it may be as simple as a clog. This vacuum has a particularly easy air path to check. There's a clear snap-on door on the bottom to check the brushroll and neck. Then from there it's a straight shot through the canister itself before dumping inside and going through the filter. If it's the hose, you can turn the end clockwise to remove it from the body of the vacuum and use a broomstick to clear any clogs.
If it's not a clog or filter then you may try cleaning the seals (one round at the bottom of the canister where the canister mates to the body and a rectangular one in back of that where the dust runs up and into the canister.
The Flange in question is about one inch tall and and approx 4 inches circular ..... When you pull the canister (container to empty) off and empty the contents in the trash .... some of us tap it to get the excess out or off the sides ..... That Flange is the rubber piece attached to the bottom of the darker gray cylinder inside the canister you are emptying. When you tap the canister or after dumping it numerous times that flange can work itself (slide) up the darker gray cylinder ...... it needs to be slid downward and overlap the bottom when you close the canister from dumping it. You can remove the flange and see the grooves .... replace it back on with it hanging off a little to allow for overlap. That should decrease the amount of excess being trapped in the filter. Hope this helps.
