Question about Vacuums

I was using my Rigid WD09450 shop vac and the neighbor wanted to borrow it. When i got it back the noise level had increased tremendously. What could have happened.... nothing seems to be clogged and suction is fine. But the noise hurts my ears.

I would start by inspection of the filter could be plugged up or even missing,try removing it and running it has noise changed ?if not it would seem like maybe your neighbor used it with out filter and vacuumed up cement or aggressive particles causing motor damage.

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.

Whenever we use our central vac the power cuts in and out often. It happens at all outlets. When I borrowed the neighbour's hose it did the same thing. So I assume I can rule out a short in the hose. Any...


Not necessarily. If the neighbors have the same problem, it could still be the hose. Try your hose at their place.
You can also use their hose AND power nozzle at your place. If their power nozzle works fine, then it's loose or worn wiring in your power nozzle or connection. Also, you can try your power nozzle at their place to double check.
Check your power nozzle connection for discoloring, breaks, cracks, etc. Take to a shop to check internal wiring.

Dust blowing right back into the air


You need to check the filter and make sure it's on all the way. To do this take the top off the vac, make sure the filter is all the way up and in place. There should be a plastic nut to hold it in place. If you are using it for fine dust particles such as drywall dust, you need a special filter for small particles. The filter that comes with the vac just won't do it!
