Question about Shop Vac (464-38-10) Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

1 Answer

Shop vac has something plugging hose, I can't disconnect hose

The shop vac works, I was using it, but must have sucked up something, hose is now plugged. I don't know how the hose disconnects. I tried pulling it out, it seems to be screwed in, I tried unscrewing. Inside the canister is a square part, it appears that it might pull out to disconnect hose, but I can't get it out either.

Maybe it cause I'm getting old and don't have the strength to do whatever needs to be done. I did get a hammer, thinking I should just put the thing out of its misery! ! Any ideas? And if I get hose disconnected, whats best plan to clear blockage? Thanks!!

The hose just pushes in. You should be able to just twist the hose and pull it out. After you get it out, try attaching it to the discharge side and try to blow the obstruction out. If that doesn't work, try running a fishing pole or something inside the hose.

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.

My shop vac is not sucking anything only blowing air out of the open hole where the hose should go if I wanted to blow something. I want it to vacuum not blow out. The filter sleeve and dry cloth are...


I just had the same problem, the vac wouldn't suck in. Turned out to be because the filter was WET. It works great when I take the filter off before sucking up water or liquids! Not sure if this applies in your case, but definitely something to keep in mind. : )

Ridgid shop vac is not sucking


Check the intake hose for a blockage. Attach the hose to the exhaust outlet and turn the vacuum on. If no extracted air is blowing out of it the hose is totally clogged up

Every time I turn vac on with hose attached the canister sucks in on itself. the hose is not plugged


Try it with no attachment or nozzle on the end. If it sucks the hose in on itself then, you'll be wanting to check that hose one more time. Pass something with a larger diameter through it. I'd try 3/4" PVC pipe or something like that. Another alternative is to place the hose on the exhaust of the canister and try to blow it out. Yet a third possibility is to reverse the hose on the suction side and **** through the hose backwards.
Best regards, --W/D--

NuTone CV353 Central Vac does not start when hose is plugged into


Try to plug the hose in sideways. So the top of the hose is rotated 90 degrees. If the unit turns on then there is something wrong with the hose. It might be a short or it could be a bad switch on the handle. If the unit still wont turn on I would think that maybe the low voltage wire got disconnected from the unit or there is a break in the low voltage wire somewhere along the way. Let me know if you plugging the hose in sideways works.

I sucked up a dusing cloth with my ducted vacuum cleaner and now it does not **** at all. Help can not afford a three hundred dollar bill. blocked


Hi,
Turn off the power on the main vacuum unit. Then thread a plumber's snake or stiff small gauge wire from the outlet you were plugged into when the dust cloth got sucked up. With any luck, you'll be able to push it through a bit or with a small bend at the tip of the wire, you might catch hold of the rag and pull it out. You could also try sucking out the line with a shop vac by fitting it tightly into the outlet and turning on the vacuum.

hope it helps.
please rate this solution.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Shop vac sucks water for a few seconds then it spits it back out


Don't use the paper filter for sucking water. It can ruin it. It will still be usable if you just set it out to dry but there is no reason to use it for water in my experience. I have a sears shop vac and it will fill up more than half full without ejecting the water.

Shop Vac not working well


The only thing after the filter and bag is the motor. Do you have suction with the hose removed? If not then the hose is clogged. If you have some, then the motor is the problem.
