Question about Shop Vac Vacuums

1 Answer

I have a Series 90L Wet /Dry vac.The "on/off" buttons will not move. The switch is fine--I opened it up and tried the switch directly, and it works. I put the top bnack on, and the "on/off" buttons will not move. They do move freely when the top is off. What do I do now???

I am sure there is a safety switch causing the switch not to come on,make sure the top is on correctly,and latches are good and tight.

Dry/Wet vac is blowing instead of vaccuum


Check to see if the plastic ball is stuck . There should be a ball under the motor , make sure it moves freely. Make sure your vacum lines are not plugged . Best of luck Ed.

Shop Vac just stopped


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.
