I also had a switch go bad on a shop vac-- wouldn't turn off. For less than $4.00, I got a replacement mini rocker switch from Digi-Key www.digikey.com. item # EG1505 Problem solved. My shop vac works like new.

I have the same problem...thanks nminadeo, I ordered the switch from Digikey and installed it...works perfectly. Thanks again! I sent ShopVac an email of how disgusted I was at them for trying to gouge people to buy the whole power unit.

Digi-Key is a great sourch for the switch but the EG1505-ND is only rated for 8A and the vac draws more than that. For about 40 cents more order a 1091-1062-ND. It's rated for 15A.

well if you can find the motor ( find a place that deals with the manufacturer directly so you get the right part ) and it isnt to expensive, most shop vacs are pretty easy, if you look under the top you should see about four screws, remove those and the top should come of giving you access to the motor, take note about the wires and what they hook up to. i doubt the motor is fastend down other than that.
