Question about Craftsman 17765 Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

1 Answer

I was using vac to **** up water after pressure washing my pool deck. The canister was about 1/2 full and getting heavy to move so I decided to empty it. (It was working just fine up to this point) I took the top off and carried the canister to the yard to empty it. After putting it back together, it won't come back on. Thinking it might need to dry out (?!?!?) I let it sit for 5 days ... still nothing. Any suggestions or advice? Thank you in advance.

It is supposed to have a round plastic plate and a plastic handle with a nut made in it that tightens against the plate to hold the filter on

It is Repairable But, The parts will cost almost as much as a New Vac. I would just get a New Vac and save the Hastle and the Cash. The choice is all yours Though. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

SOURCE: My Craftsman wet/dry vac stopped

For some reason, sounds like your contacts in motor got wet. Now I know this sounds funny with a product that is called wet and dry. I believe if you open it up, let it dry good, of course around motor( use hair dyer to speed process) it should dry out and most likely start working after contacts dry out. OH , don't forget to check breaker that shop vac is plugged in, uncase you tripped breaker on wall plug in circuit, and FINALLY , see if there is a normally red reset button on shop vac motor, it might have tripped. Please let me know if I helped, if so please respond with thumbs up and short comment, it helps me and other viewers. Thanks mike from fixya

6.0 hp 12 Gallon Shop-Vac 'exploding'


Those type of vacuums are designed for light duty work around homes anyways. For commercial industrial work as you are doing you need a sump pump. We used to drop one in a 5 gallon (20 liter) pail, drill holes in the pail and suspend from a rope. (you can put screen around the pail covering the holes if needed too). Use a stiff hose to expell the water. You can change to a flat hose like a pool waste water hose or fire hose after the water is out of the trench.

I bought my first craftsman 9 gallong wet/dry vac - i do not know how to operate it and I don't want to break anything. I have a pamphlet but it is still confusing. can I pour a few gallons of water into...


Hello again.
When it says wet vacuuming, it means that the vacuum will pick up water, not dispense it. When you are using the vacuum to pick up water, you'll need to remove the paper filter element under the motor, inside the canister, to avoid ruining it. When the filter is removed, you will see a plactic ball inside a cage under the motor. It's purpose is to float up on the surface of the water being vacuumed up, and prevent the motor from getting water into it. You'll be able to tell when the canister is full; the noise the vacuum makes will change and sound higher. Also, the suction at the hose will quit. At that point, shut off the vacuum and drain the water.
Be sure to replace the paper filter when you swap back from liquids to solids.
Best regards, --W/D--

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.

Deodorizing the vacuum


First of all Clean out the vacum cleaner . Empty canister and take filter outside and hit on something to get all dust out . Now wash canister and filter with vinegar water and let dry before using vacum again. You might try using carpet fresh for pet odors on carpet and empty and clean canister and filter regularly. I own a cleaning business and this is a hard problem to solve with all vac. cleaners. Good Luck!!

Shop vac sucks water for a few seconds then it spits it back out


Don't use the paper filter for sucking water. It can ruin it. It will still be usable if you just set it out to dry but there is no reason to use it for water in my experience. I have a sears shop vac and it will fill up more than half full without ejecting the water.

Electrolux vacuum turning off


hi take off canister cover remove bag now if you look inside canister you will/should see a gauze type filter at the opposite end of canister from where bag locks in ?? remove this gauze filter and for now just shake tap on floor to remve dust/debri etc /from it this gauze is the filter that when vac is working andfilling the dust bag ? the pressure of air only that blows bag up but allows only air to pass thro the microscopic holes in bag ? then has to expel via the gauze filter to exterior ? and any dust etc that is clever enough to seep through the bag ??? will not pass further due to gauze ? and so prevents this blowing back into room ok so far ?? if this gauze is blocked due to whatever ?? then pressure build up in canister will result in cover lifting? this is provided that the fault is not the actual cover securing latch is ok and not damaged ? hope this explains and helps ? best wishes from uk !

Hello,
This is not a problem that I can help you with, you need to contact someone in your area that deals with swimming pools and they have vacuums that are specially designed to do the swimming pools and they can better direct you in what to do.
