Yes, you need to remove head unit from canister and pull head unit apart, switches are usually common and are just push in. available from electronics suppliers

Our BLB500, 12 gallon, 5.0 peak HP, Shop Vac won't come on.


From what I have heard, the switch on these units can sometimes be defective. Also, looking closely at the the AC cord may help determine if there is damage to it that should be repaired.

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 90L400 stopped working won't start


I had the same problem with the same model. Turned out to be the thermal fuse on the motor housing, between the switch and the windings. Took it apart and replaced the melted solder with 14 guage copper wire. Works fine! No thermal protection but I don't use it for long at a time anyway. Check the switch for continuity, if good then check the thermal fuse for continuity. If good, it's the motor.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. There are only 2 ways that I can think of in answer to your question. Either you can replace the fan impeller or you have to replace the entire motor. You would have to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or contact the Shop Vac factory @ the website or to call the factory @ the phone 3 listed below; or check your owner’s manual.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
