Why won't it turn back on?


If it is a wet or dry vac, check for a binding float switch inside the cage. You can sometimes free it by shaking the top assembly up and down vigorously.

I can't find the owner's manual to our shop vac. What's involved in converting it from a dry vac to a wet vac? I think it does both, but I've only ever used it to clean the car.


generally you remove the filter and just use the foam sleeve (if it has one) it should have a float ball in a cage under the filter. this is to keep the water from going into the motor if it gets too full. That is pretty much it. You should have it plugged into a GFCI outlet when using it for wet pick up, also do not pick up flammable or hazardous liquids.

Genie 400PC 16 gal shop vac but can't find filters


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.

My children cleaned our Eureka 4d boss bagless vacuum and threw the lid to the dust cup in the trash. How do i find a replacement lid? The vacuum does not work without it,


Check with a vac repair shop to see if they might have a used top. If not they should be able to order you one. You could call the customer service number located on the label of the vac located on the back or the bottom of your vac for assistance.

Do you remove the filter when vacuumning water with a dirt hawg shop vac?


The cartridge will slide off an internal housing cage which contains the float. Look for a knob, thumb tab or dial at the bottom of the cartridge and rotate bay hand. Always wipe the area where the filter meets the vac body before reinstalling and drain thoroughly before storing.
When full of water you should hear the pitch of the vac motor change.

Have a Sears shop vac, mod 113.172. The motor doesn't take in


If the motor turns, you should have suction. Put the hose on the exhaust side of the motor if there is a connection, and try to blow it out. If you can't, try using a garden hose or toilet snake to clear the hose. IF the hose is clear, and the problem continues, check the float in the cage below the motor. It should be down at the bottom of the cage. Also, if you haven't been using a bag or foam cover for the cage, it is possible for leaves to clog the motor.

the neoprene sleeve used as the filter may have come off the cage. there's a plastic ring that fits over the filter and cage and holds it in place. as far other suggestions, use an old cotton sleeve from a pajama top. tie it off one end, slip it over the cage and fasten with a large wide rubber band.

open the top of the vacuum. remove ONLY the filter element. There should be a ball about a two inch diameter inside the cage. It's purpose is to shut off the vacuum flow when water reaches a high in the canister.
