Stand in front of the vaccuum with the lable facing you, the 2 release levers are on the left and right sides, attached to the motor housing, which sits atop the tank/canister. Pull out and up on the levers, twist counter-clockwise, lift straight up and the motor housing will follow, leaving the tank/canister on the floor.

I'm afraid you'll need to take it apart. the switch is mounted in a plastic holder in the top. While you got it apart and without it plugged in, check to see that both brushes are touching the commutator. there should be sufficient spring tension to hold the brushes against the spinning part [commutator] if even one brush isn't making contact it won't spin.

I'm not certain I have all the parts to my Shop Vac. I have no instructions so I need help describing how it works and a picture of the main parts.
Thanks for any help. Julia Harris

all you have to do is open it up and take the paper filter off and then it's a wet vac. If it has a foam over filter you leave that on
