Maybe you have the vac hose plugged into the blow out port.

SOURCE: Can't install a bag for my Craftsman 16 gallon shop-vac

Well, good news, you don't need a bag! The trash just settles to the bottom of the bucket and you just dump it out.

I own one of these -- it has many little operational anoyances -- like wheels falling off, lid popping off, etc. If you run into these scenarios and want help on fixes, drop me a line.

Would you please rate my response. I think you'll see some icons at the bottom of the post to enter a rating.

thanks...

SOURCE: I had a loose wire in my Oreck XL motor. I took it

Lights are 12 volts.

The motor has taps on it to pull 12 volts rather than 120 volts for the lights, uses the motor as a transformer.

Should be black and white to the motor from the switch, believe the switch breaks the black wire. White wire should be neutral. I can't remember colors for the wires to the lights. Would expect it to be the white wire and then the "tap" wire to be red.

One crazy way to do it, is to hook up wires, leave the light bulbs out, turn on power, and check voltage at the bulb socket with a voltmeter. (This is one of those things they tell you on television to only let a professional do, do not attempt at home.)

SOURCE: how do you change the ridgid 9 gallon wet/dry shop

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

I ran over the cord to the vac with my lawn mower ,I need to replace the damaged cord with a new one. How do I remove the old cord?


You need to remove the screws that are in the location of where the wire goes into the vacuum. Then you will see a cord grip and connectors for the wires.

Older model shop.vac parts/owners manuel


Hi, I know on my Craftsman shop vac 2 different sizes of vacs that I use, I try and stick to the craftsman filters, but you can use other brands if they are not available or you want to save some ( $ ) ? As far as a manual for this vac, more then likely you will have to go to the maker and distributor as Sears, O.C.Hardware also sell there products. You may have to go with a manual that is the same peak H.P.and gallons that covers all different makes and models. Filter wise, make sure you have the right ones on or off when using the wet or dry pick-up settings.
Sincerely,

How do i turn the pump on to pump out the water this is a 16 gallon 5.75 peak horsepower wet dry vacuum.


If you want to get water that's in your vacuum, OUT of your vacuum, you simply need to remove the top and dump the water out. As far as I know, the Shop-Vac 962-16-00 won't "pump out" any water that's in it.

If you want to pump water from one place to another (for example, your basement to your backyard), this vacuum doesn't pump water "through" itself (like a sump pump) - it will, however, **** water up. You just need to dump it out once the vacuum is full.
