Question about Ryobi Vacuums

1 Answer

I have Ryobi RBL30MVB Blower\Vac\Mulcher. It Vacs and mulches but does not blow. It did blow the first time I used it but not since. The plastic handle mechanism for moving from suck to blow seems

Cleaning the main suction pipe, cleaning the filter into the mulch bag, over revving in case something stuck.

SOURCE: Problems with the Hoover Steam vac Heated carpet cleaner

You'll have to go into the turbine assembly and check the bearings. Mine stopped spinning and this solved that problem. I simply began working the seized bearing until it rolled again, packed it in grease and reassembled.

My Ryobi RBV3000vpc will not start


Sounds like a bad switch. Possibly a loose wire.

What would cause my shop vac series90pn to quit working while picking up water


The best thing for a basement that is vulnerable to flooding is a small sump with a permanently wired automatic submersible pump in it. Such pumps are relatively cheap and available in many qualities.
While such an installation will not keep a basement dry it will ensure the water level rises only enough for the majority to flow into the sump and be pumped away without you needing to do anything.

Wet vacs of my experience either have a float valve to prevent water ingress into the motor or a switch to cut off the power if the level rises too high.
Many such vacs have a powerful motor generating much heat and are only suitable for fairly short duty cycles. When used continuously the internal heat build up can distort plastic and melt thermal safety fuses.

It is impossible to guess what the trouble might be and that will only be revealed by checking. With vacs the first suspect is the power cord and the second is the switch...

How to use Shop Vac 85L450 exhaust as blower


Unlike the old days few vacs today have a blower facility.
In the old days many vacs used a single exhaust port the hose could fit into for blowing and in particular using some of the supplied accessories - such as the famous spray gun loved and hated by everyone in equal measure.

Modern vacs tend to have a diffused exhaust usually through several ports, perhaps because of imagined safety concerns. I suggest you check the operator instructions.

Shop vac blowing instead of vacuuming


Most Shop Vacs allow you to hook the hose up to the output valve as well as the intake.

Make sure that your hose is hooked up to the intake valve on your shop vac.

Stinger Wet/Dry Vac There is NOTHING blocking the hose or the route to the container, but all of a sudden when I turn it on, the noise is so incredibly LOUD I can not use it anymore. Any ideas of what...


To PETMOMBR I recently had the same problem, I contacted Emerson Tool Co to see if a replacement for the blow wheel is available,and sadly it is not. I was told that the Rigid vacs do have replacement parts and some with a lifetime warranty.
Had my vac for approx 10 yrs, I would say I got my moneys worth. In all, I'd say it's a toss, time to get a new one.

I have a Craftsman wet dry vac with blower capability (22 L). While I was using it to **** up water, the water came out of the blower hose. Now I can't get it to work as a vacuum. What can I do to fix...


Most wet dry vacs have a ball float that blocks the vacuum when it is full of liquid. Yours sounds as if it is full or the ball has gotten stuck in the up, or blocking position.

My dc14 animal works fine in Vaccuum mode but when I switch to the extendable tool the sound of the vaccuum changes to a higher pitch noise and I get very little suction through the hose. Any suggestion


Your hose has a restriction. To fix this, use a broom handle and insert it into the hose as far as it will go. If the hose can be removed, take it off completely and do this, if not be careful so as to not damage the sweeper with the handle. another way to fix this is to blow compressed air through it (this is good to do to all vacs to keep them working good) You can get the compressed air from an air compresser or a shop vac or even a leaf blower, but that will take two people. Once you clear the blockage the sweeper will work fine again. best wishes!

Bought house. Inherited shop/vac. A bit old, but


If you are going to use the wet vac to remove water, be sure to remove the bag inside the canister first. Also, some wet vacs have an internal float that has to be installed, but that may not be the case with yours.
