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.

Is a shop vac supposed to blow while vacuuming? We've had this for several years and I don't recall it blowing air OUT while I am vacuuming.


You should have two ports on the shopvac. One that is basically your vacuum and one you can use as a blower. Your hose will fit on both connectors. So yes, it would both **** and blow. This is called a "blow-through" system.

Kenmore vac won't shut off, blowing heavy air from vent


For the stack of problems you have, it sounds like it be best for you to ditch it and get a new vacuum. The heavy problem sounds like a motor issue. The burning smell is most likely from the belt being loose on the power head.

Economically, you should just get a new one instead of replacing the whole system guts

Dry/Wet vac is blowing instead of vaccuum


Check to see if the plastic ball is stuck . There should be a ball under the motor , make sure it moves freely. Make sure your vacum lines are not plugged . Best of luck Ed.
