Question about Shop Vac Shop-Vac& Mini Hang Up Wet/Dry Vac Vacuum
Posted by Anonymous on
The mini has a plastic blade, it sounds like it is loose on the shaft. The air you feel coming out is vacuum air and motor cooling air. It will feel like there is a lot of air even if you block the hose, because that's motor cooling air. The plastic blade might need replaced.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

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--

Bag? There is a paper filter and maybe a foam filter ... bag? Maybe this is a newer model that I am not familiar with. Anyway ... ...
