Question about Shop Vac 584-06-00 Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

Cannot find a filter

In July I started looking for a replacement filter for my ShopVac portable Wet/Dry 15 litre vacuum cleaner, which I bought at Sears in Canada. Three months later, I am still looking. Sears has not been any help at all. The Model no. shown on my manual is 113.296010C and the part number is 9-97210 (Purple Stripe) paper filter. The numbers may be different for you, but the pictures of model no. 9-17776 very closely resemble my shopvac.

Re: Cannot find a filter

U can try Sears Canada part nr 090 397 311 10, but I coulkd not obtain it in the store in Kelowna.

But, found that the RIDGID VF3500 filter fits and works great!! Much more freely available as well at Home Depot etc.

I use knee high panty hose! I buy them by the cheap box and then just peel them off and throw them away when they get too nasty! I have found filters at Sears previous to my cheap trick though! :)

Re: Cannot find a filter

In a pinch a discarded flannel pajama sleeve can be employed as a filter on your shop-vac. grab up an end and twist it together and fasten with a piece of wire. the open part slips over the cage of the vacuum and fastens with a large flat rubber band. I'll try to find a source for a filter for you and will get back to you.

We inherited the shopvac 16 gallon. I bought the required filter (foam) but the dust blows back from the blow hole. Am I missing a part?

The foam filter is for use when using the vac. to pick up water. Now you should have a paper filter for picking up dry material.If possible you may want to look inside of one at the store. Hope this helps.

Do you need a special filter for wet application

Yes. The following site shows the filters and which is used for what. Due to potential motor damage, I wouldn't use it without the proper filter.

The brushes that make contact with the motor's armature need to be cleaned. If you get into the motor and find that the armature is scored or burnt then you'll have to replace the motor.

Just be sure to remove the paper filter bag that fits over the foam filter before vacuuming liquids. It's easy to get it wet and they don't work very well when that happens.
