Question about Shop Vac 285-00-10 Back Pack Vac Wearable Wet/Dry Vacuum
I have a 90L Quiet Series Shop Vac. I was using it and it just quit. No noise, no smoke, no smell. And now it won't turn on. Do they have a reset button of any kind?
If you remove the motor, you will see that the wires that go from the switch to the brushes. On one side there is one wire connected directly to the brush. On the other side the wire goes to a plastic plug with a second wire going to the brush. This is probably where the problem is. This is a fusible link and it has most likely melted creating an open in the circuit. I put a piece of solder where the link was and the motor ran BUT the brushed arced like a sparkler. Upon further examination the brushes were crumbling apart. I have been unable to find replacement brushes.
This machine has a five year warranty. I called Shop Vac Customer Service 1-888-822-4644 and they sent me a new motor.
I had a Shop Vac QL50EIC which had exactly the same problem but the warranty was expired so that I had to buy another motor for about $50.

Some do, but it would be in the open by the cord. But you could have a bad cord, switch, or a problem with the motor.
