I just did this. There are a lot of screws involved - mostly Phillips. I did run into a couple odd ones - probably there to protect idiots from themselves. One of the odd ones I eventually got, the other I drilled out. The connector on my switch came off, simple fix. I put 'Great Stuff' on the wire to hold it in place so that this did not happen again.

Re: manual for genie vacuum
Take the top part off and look at it. there should be some screws around the circumference of the top holding the upper part. remove these screws and the motor/switch section should come off. You'll probably find more screws holding everything else together. the switch fits into an all plastic holder and is more than likely a slide switch.

I have the Genie 3000 which is a 20 gal. wet/dry vac with a 3.0 HP motor. I had bought at Home Depot some 20+ years ago. I bought a replacement filter at HD made by someone other than Genie and claiming to fit my model...but it did not fit...too loose to stay in place. I did track down some hypo filters that might fit...but at $28+ for the filter I decided it was time to get a new model with better and cheaper and available filters. I bought a Ridgid WD1451 14 gal with 6.0 HP. It is so much nicer and quieter. HD regularly carries the WD1450 for $99 or so. The WD1451 is the same model but also had the car vac hose and attachments (a $40 set) included for free. That was a limited offer probably no longer available. Get you a new one and enjoy it...I did...and I still have the Genie...but I think I'll toss it because it is too big, too loud, and I love this new Ridgid.
Used a roll of toilet paper that what I used when I was drag racing. I am sorry
that junky, sorry. Contact you local vacuum cleaner repair shop and see if they
one on hand. Go to the Internet and for Genie Vacuum Cleaner web side. I'll bet
you they will have it, order more than one. GB...stewbison
If you need paper filters, you can easily use a bag filter cut in half, and have less dust clouds than the original filter. Remember to use the lock ring. Generic ShopVac mini's have the same filter in foam.
