I would not think so since it has no micro filter system. It contains a cartridge that was designed for Copy machine toner.

Need charging station for Shark Cyclonic 12 volt cordless power-vac


Buy a replacement charger from the Shark Cyclonic dealer. It is important that the specs match the battery, one or two volts higher can shorten the battery life by quite a large amount.

Acorns in top of Shop-vac


Leave it outside for the squirrels and mice to remove the acorns. It is unlikely the acorns passed through the filter and fans. Can you see them to know they are in the top of the vac?

Older model shop.vac parts/owners manuel


Hi, I know on my Craftsman shop vac 2 different sizes of vacs that I use, I try and stick to the craftsman filters, but you can use other brands if they are not available or you want to save some ( $ ) ? As far as a manual for this vac, more then likely you will have to go to the maker and distributor as Sears, O.C.Hardware also sell there products. You may have to go with a manual that is the same peak H.P.and gallons that covers all different makes and models. Filter wise, make sure you have the right ones on or off when using the wet or dry pick-up settings.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Which new model replaces this model #11622612200


Ron, Kenmore assigns model numbers pretty much sequentially as they receive new inventory. There is no cross reference anywhere in the industry for their product except in their catalog. If you want to compare features you must do it that way to find a similar vac. If you are very luck you may find an experience Sales rep at Sears.
If this is a Kenmore canister , as they age the hose and wheels and wand connections break down. For a better designed or improved vac, look at a professional vac shop and look at all the spots which broke down on your old one. If there are feateures you like make note of them too and you should find similar features on a pro brand or at Sears.
One more thing, don't buy a new vac based on amperage. Amperage is consumption of power NOT output but its a big deal to advertise that way. it's only a numbers game. A 12 AMP vac motor with its suction fans removed is still a 12 amp motor, it just has no suction. Anyone who tries to sell you a vac based on amperage does not know there business. Best of luck. For a lighter easier running vac,better design look at Sebo , Miele, etc, as well. The Europeans are far ahead in design and filtration and durability

I was given an Electrolux vacuum model 1401-B. I would like to download a manual for it. Do you have one? Thanks, Carolyn


Carolyn, The 1401B is one of a family of US built LUX models , now sold by AERUS Electrolux. It shares common info with the MARQUISE, Super J , Olympia and 1205, etc so if you come across a used manual for any of them you will be in good shape.
Try an AERUS Electrolux dealer but the manual may be out of print.Also try a local vac shop
Quick rundown, :
Set the dial at front between medium and fine and don`t adjust, this is the bag fill control, NOT a suction control.
Only use genuine 4 ply filter bags from a pro vac shop, not grocery store grade as this is a vac which filters thru its bag.
Hang the hose for longer life, obstructions can be blown out thru plugging the hose in the blower port under the slide door behind the handle.
Inspect the power head for hair and thread and remove any visible.
When you wheels squeak while vacuming spray the axle shaft behind the neck with a drop of WD 40.
If you feel air venting thru the hose behind the handle or if it is crushed and kinked there or at the vac replace the hose for better suction. The weight of this vac weras out hoses. When the castor below the body cracks and it will, match it with a small SHEPARD castre at the hardware store.
If your rewind is sluggish, pour a tablespoon of talc or baby powder in a tissue and run it up and down the lenght of the vac cord end to end. Then drop the tissue into the vac bag fro fresh scent.....
Enjoy the vac, this one is a great one 30 year plus life span, parts are still available keep it in good repair
