Wet/Dry Vac Leaking

I have a Sears wet/dry vac and when I vacuum water there is a fine spray coming out of the air outlet and water drips around the rim of the cover. I have removed the filter and cleaned it and repeatedly removed and replaced the cover thinking that it wasn't seated correctly. Any suggestions? Thanks

I can't find the owner's manual to our shop vac. What's involved in converting it from a dry vac to a wet vac? I think it does both, but I've only ever used it to clean the car.


generally you remove the filter and just use the foam sleeve (if it has one) it should have a float ball in a cage under the filter. this is to keep the water from going into the motor if it gets too full. That is pretty much it. You should have it plugged into a GFCI outlet when using it for wet pick up, also do not pick up flammable or hazardous liquids.

Vacuuming up water with Shop Vac model 84M200


when picking up dry materials use the foam sleeve that slips on and the blue cloth (assuming there all blue) over it, there should be a ring that slides over blue cloth to hold it in place over the foam sleeve, for wet pick up u can use the foam sleeve minus the blue cloth but let it dry out before picking up dry stuff, you can pick up both wet and dry with a cartrige filter that looks simular to a car air filter and it slips over the foam sleeve, but let it dry out after picking up water before picking up dry cause itll just clog it up

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.

You **** up water the same way as dirt. It's designed this way, hence the name wet/dry. Just be sure not to get the water in the very top of the unit where the motor sucks the air for cooling ventilation, if water gets in there it can burn up the motor. A little hard way, personal experience, speaking there.

Either you aren't getting the top on correctly so it will latch, or there maybe a problem with the latches. You should have a one year warranty on this, take it back to Sears and have them look at it.
