Mod.#J150A shopvac won't turn on


These units are not high quality. There are problems with the motors and the switches, you can check these things or just get another one. If you get another one, get a different brand.

Vacuum shut off and will not turn on again. What could be wrong?.


Your switch died, it happens a lot with this brand of shopvac. Just extract the little switch behind the big rocker switch and replace it with one from radio shack, or replace it with a toggle switch. Cheap and easy to do.

Shopvac 90L400 quit working (4 years old). Thought the switch was bad but not the problem. I read that there is a fuse link in the motor that frequently burns up. I tried to take motor apart but not sure...


by pass the switch and take power right to the motor leads.. that should tell you if the motor is ok.. have not seen fuse link on a vac motor.. graingers has new motors, but not inexpensive

I have a shopvac model#86776-24. The toggle switch went bad and I'm looking for a replacement switch


I got a replacement switch at a local electronic supply store: Philmore Miniature Rocker Switch part number 30-043. Shop vac changed the switch recently to two push buttons from the old rocker style. This update works a lot better.

Need new switch for Shopvac QSP Pro 10 gallon unit


I just went through the same problem with a Shop Vac. The switch is easy to replace but not easy to find. After removing the switch, I found a match made by Sigma Switches. They directed me to contact a local RV dealer and look in either their Coast Supply or Stag/Parkway Supply catalogs for the appropriate switch (an H2-28 in my case for a QPL45 Shop Vac). After ordering the switch and $5 later, it snaps in like the original with no problems. Certainly beats $70 for a whole new motor assembly.

Shop vac QPL625 on off switch stays on.


Contact Digi-Key 1-800-344-4539 or 218-681-6674 ask for part number EG1505-ND.

Cost is about $2.00 plus shipping.

See http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=EG1505-ND for part details.

You want a D.P.S.T (On/Off) mini-rocker switch.
