My husband threw out my motor bag for my Delonghi Wet and dry M-31. Can I run the vacuum without this protecting the motor?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
No…. I would advise NOT running the machine without the filter because you will burn up the motor. You can use a paper bag with a rubber band to slide over the motor to protect it from dust and also if you have a foam type filter – you can put the foam filter on first, then the paper bag then the rubber band, or if you have a cartridge filter you can run it with just the cartridge filter bur would suggest cleaning the cartridge filter after each use – also you can place the paper bag method over the cartridge filter as well or call the Delonghi factory and order the part or they will direct you to a local dealer, Info listed below:

My hoover sucked up water. I dried it out but I think some may have got through the filter to the engine as nothing happens when I turn it one now. Fixable? Miele c2 compact allergy


If the bag was wet and the internal filter that sits behind the bag on that model was wet then water will have penetrated through to the motor.

All you can do is remove all possible components from the inside of the cleaner (the bag and filters) , get a powerful hair dryer, set it on cool and run air through from the inside of the cleaner into the electric motor compartment to try and dry up any residual moisture. Leave it open to air out and wait a few days before refitting the components and starting it.

If it will not start after drying it then you will have short circuited and damaged the motor and you will need to buy a new machine.

Can I safely bypass the thermo switch on my Panasonic vacuum cleaner? It has a chronic issue of shutting down after vacuuming about 200 square feet of carpet.


I would make sure the filters are clean for this vacuum. Dirty filters will cause a motor to overheat and trip the thermal switch. If this machine has bags make sure the bag is not full. On some machines there is a filter under the bag where it meets the motor housing. I would not recommend bypassing the thermal switch. It is there for your protection. The motor could possibly burn up without it.

Can I use shop-vac without bag 5gal5.5 hp


If you are using it for wet pick up, you would not use the bag. If you are using it for dry pick up, I would recommend using the bag to keep dust from going thru the vacuum and back into the area you are trying to vacuum.

I have a craftsman 2 gal wet/dry vacuume & after using it for a wet pick up without a filter, it blows dust out while vacuuming and is extremely loud. Any suggestions. I took it apart and unclogged...


It sucked up some of the muddy water into the impeller while you was using it. Then it dried out and turned to dust. After you get done using it for wet pickup take a water hose and let a little clean water **** into the impeller, with it off the tub. That will clean it then let it run till dry. That will keep it from getting moldy also. And always put a filter on before using for dry stuff. They make a universal filter that is like a satin bag. That is what I use instead of paper one. Even for water.

Hoover core vacuum cleaner. My son has vacuumed water into machine. will this ruin it


Allow it to dry dry for sometime , clean all the filter after keeping it open, then run it open without any attachments , the bag or the filter till all traces of water/moisture goes off. I dont think there will much of problem unless it has gone into the motor and damaged, But take care if it is wet and allow it to dry before you touch it or connect to mains.
