open the top of the vacuum. remove ONLY the filter element. There should be a ball about a two inch diameter inside the cage. It's purpose is to shut off the vacuum flow when water reaches a high in the canister.

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.

well if you can find the motor ( find a place that deals with the manufacturer directly so you get the right part ) and it isnt to expensive, most shop vacs are pretty easy, if you look under the top you should see about four screws, remove those and the top should come of giving you access to the motor, take note about the wires and what they hook up to. i doubt the motor is fastend down other than that.

I just picked up a similar model someone was throwing away. turns out there is a thermal fuse inside the motor housing that blew. I just need to find the values of the fuse and repalce with appropriate size. motor runs when fuse is bypassed.
