I bought a 1 gallon shop vac at an estate sale. They said it was new. It isn't. The model # is 2E200. The front says shop.vac 1X1. I have no directions can't open it or put the hose in it.


You have two options: return it to seller or put the information about the model number and name in your search spot and Google for manual.

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.

Can you disconnect the hose from both ends of the unit?
I generally push a broom handle down a clogged hose, and second broom handle if needed!

You can also attach a shop vac hose to the shop vac exhaust and blow it out using the exhaust of the shop vac.

Maybe you sucked up a dryer sheet or plastic bag. Empty the unit completely and look at all the possible portals where items have to travel through.

Shop vac blowing instead of vacuuming


Most Shop Vacs allow you to hook the hose up to the output valve as well as the intake.

Make sure that your hose is hooked up to the intake valve on your shop vac.

Shop vac is not pumping out water just fills the canister


The question makes perfect sense assuming we are talking about the ShopVacPumpVac. These devices are, essentially, a combination shop vac and sump pump. For those answering the question, you can see literature on these vacuum/sumps here: https://www.shopvac.com/includes/streamPDF.asp?loc=pdf&id=Shop-Vac-Pump-It-Out .

When I have experienced the loss of drainage, I have found a couple obvious problems and solutions.

First, make sure that the garden/discharge hose is not kinked at any point along the line from the vacuum to the outside. If kinked, the line will not drain.

Second, the baffle can become blocked or clogged. Take the following steps to determine if your baffle is clogged and to clear the clog:

1. Turn off and unplug the vacuum.
2. Unclip the two lid clips.
3. Lift the lid of the vacuum. When properly set up, the baffle hangs below the filter housing on an opaque hose about 1 foot in length.
4. Grasp that hose and pull firmly downward. Once removed, I take that hose and the attached baffle to an outside garden hose.
5. Pull the baffle off the opaque hose.
6. Spray water from your garden hose through the opaque hose to make sure it is clear.
7. Spray the baffle clear.
8. Lightly tap the port of the baffle, where the opaque hose has been inserted. Most of my clogs have been the result of hair balls (or worse) at this point. Just tap any blockage out and rinse.

Third, reattach the baffle to the opaque hose. Reattach the opaque hose and baffle to the motor under the filter housing. Set the vacuum top on the canister. Click the locking clamps closed.

If this doesn't result in clearing the clog and allowing it to drain, then you are in the exact spot I am right now. If I figure out this new problem, I will update further. But I have cleared this kind of clog maybe five times in the six months I've been using this new Shop Vac Sump Vac
