You may have shorted out the motor windings. If you have a multi-meter check for continuity. You can also use a hair drier to blow out moisture and wait a couple days before trying to use it again.

Sit it outdoors in the sun for a day or two. Try it again. If no sun out, put it in a garbage bag, put in 2 cups of uncooked rice, seal with tape. Open in three days and try. If you need to repeat, replace the rice.

I have Ridgid wet/dry shop vac, I was vacuuming


Did you have a paper/cardboard filter attached to the top part of the unit? Sounds like you didn't have a filter or the silicate material got past it and into the motor and windings. Bad news if this is the case. Try taking the top part off, turn it on to see if it runs without the bottom tank section. Double check to see if your vac has a fuze. If it won't go on you'll need to dismantle the upper unit and clean it all out. Hand turn the motor and see if it easily turns or is sluggish. My wife used my wet/dry vac without the filter and wrecked it with sheetrock dust into the motor. I dismantled the top, cleaned it twice and it's still no good. By the way, generally you have to take the paper filter out if you are vacuuming wet up. If you leave the paper filter on and vacuum wet up, the paper filter will get wet, shred and get pulled into the upper motor unit. A wet/dry vac isn't really made to pump water (by the gallons) out of places, so don't expect that. Okay yes you can often hook up an outlet hose to the drain port at the back of the tank and vacuum quantities of water, but it's not really made to do this.

Why would my jaguar XJ6 pully start squeeking, sounds like bearings?


what is happening is the belt is not getting full contact with the pulley, you might just have some antifreeze residue from repair and by slowly poring 1/2 a gallon of water on the belt will wash off this residue BUT first look under the car for leaks ! AC off let car run for 10 minutes on driveway mark the tires position with a coin back car up and look for a wet spot, the coin will give you a better idea where the leak may be.. no leak YAAAA .. next step .
pulley groves may have trash in the groves this can be cleaned with a bar of lava soap WARNING this procedure is done with the engine running and is dangerous ! take the bar of vava and touch it to the inside of the belt, this pumice in the soap works well for cleaning the pulley groves. also a ice pick or a small screwdriver can be used in the groves of the pulleys to clean black residue in the bottom of the groves.. remember i I was able to help you thank me

Maybe open the motor casing and look for an overheat reset button. If it doesn't have one, check for voltage at the wires coming directly out of the motor. If it has power there and no reset switch, then the motor needs replaced or rebuilt.

Pure pro fan motor


compressed air , you might try bringing it to a electric motor repair shop or a auto shop and ask real nice if they would be nice enough to give your fan a shot of air. a weed blower will work also but not even close to the job of compressed air. last resort is to take it apart totaly and use soapy water and a scrub brush. do not get the motor wet ! and oil the bearings on the motor with zoom spout oil #D01.. and you can milk your favorite fan out for many,many years .. this way is like cheating death! ... jay the pool pump motor repair guy in longwood fl

Hopefully you didn't get the motor wet or any other electrical components. It sounds like you may have a motor with dry bushings. There may be an oil plug in each bell end of the motor. You can use thin weight oil , about 5 drops into each bushing should do it. If this doesn't work or it doesnt have oiling holes, the motor may have to be replaced Other wise, if you got the motor wet it may short out. In that case you would also have to change the motor

Warter coming out of the motor on top when using on wet cleaning my carpet.


It is too full and/or the float is working.
Take the top off and set it away from the tank and run the motor for 10 minutes to dry out the vacuum motor. Check that the float isn't stuck and be sure to empty the tank regularly

Clothes come out super wet


Drive motor failure, CCU or Motor control failure. To ceck this look at your owners manual and from then test the parts with a multi meter. To keep from spending money you can unplug your machine for 15 to 30 minutes, plug it back in and sometimes that will clear the code and everything will work just fine. Also some parts are covered under the 5 year warranty so make sure about that also

Beater bar brush stopped working...


Does the power head motor stop, or does the brush roll stop. If it is the brush roll stopping, replace the belt and/or the brush roll. If it is the motor, you may need to clean out around the motor, it may not be getting enough air to cool causing it to overheat and stopping. That the brush roll plate off, take out the screw, and the top will come off, then you can check to see if cleaning is the answer, if not, the motor may be bad.
