My shop vac won't turn back on after emptying

I emptied the canister and cleaned the filter on my shop vac and now it acts like there is no power getting to it.

    I have removed the pleated filter and cleaned out all the dry stuff. When I turned on the ShoVac and put the hose near the water, it did nothing!

I'm afraid you'll need to take it apart. the switch is mounted in a plastic holder in the top. While you got it apart and without it plugged in, check to see that both brushes are touching the commutator. there should be sufficient spring tension to hold the brushes against the spinning part [commutator] if even one brush isn't making contact it won't spin.

When using a bag inside shop vac, do I still need to cover the motor with foam & paper & ring or can I leave those off?


Keep it on. The purpose is to give you something to clean, a time or two, rather than have to replace the more expensive filter. I know it seems redundant, but all of the pieces filter better than just a bag. Also, if the bag gets any damp or wet material, it breaks and your next filters are the foam and paper filter.

I've been using a small shop vac in the seller to vacuum up dust, sawdust etc. I have emptied the inside and the filter looks laden with dust. It does not "****" any longer. What is wrong and what do I do...


you have to clean the filter too. Use an air hose to clean it or brush it off with a stiff brush or you can wash it if it isn't paper. As a last resort you can get a new one.

My shop vac blows dust as soon as it's turned on and throughout use. I have changed filters, nothing is helping. What part of my vac can not get wet, or is there a better way to clean out the system?


there should be a cover or sock over the filter,this will stop the dust.the paper filter is the part that can not get wet. if you don't have a cover for your filter use an old sock or something simular to a sock.

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!

There are no known vacum bags for a model wd06350 vac


This type of vacuum does not use a bag. If you are worried about clogging the filter cartridge try using a paper filter for a shop-vac. They are relatively cheap and are available at most hardware and department stores. These are made to simply wrap around the big cartridge. A rubber band will hold it in place.

Deodorizing the vacuum


First of all Clean out the vacum cleaner . Empty canister and take filter outside and hit on something to get all dust out . Now wash canister and filter with vinegar water and let dry before using vacum again. You might try using carpet fresh for pet odors on carpet and empty and clean canister and filter regularly. I own a cleaning business and this is a hard problem to solve with all vac. cleaners. Good Luck!!

Emptying the water from the Shop Vac 925-13 Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum


Stand in front of the vaccuum with the lable facing you, the 2 release levers are on the left and right sides, attached to the motor housing, which sits atop the tank/canister. Pull out and up on the levers, twist counter-clockwise, lift straight up and the motor housing will follow, leaving the tank/canister on the floor.
