Hi,
Yes there should be a filter fitted onto the top section.

For suppliers, it would be cheapest to find your nearest stockist, or buy online and have it shipped. It's still current stock - so spares should be readily available.

Sears stock it -

We just moved in - the house is about 9 years old. I have a Eureka Mega Boss central vac - looks like model # is CV20220. 12.4 amps, 120 volts. Can't figure out what type of bags I need. Can you...


Well, for this unit you will need any of the following bags,

Eureka genuine Part# 90610
Eureka replacement (Central vac bag)
another genuine bag style called CV-1, and/or CV-2
Kenmore Central vac bags

Most of the bags there are available at your local vacuum shop, and sometimes even Sears. The Kenmore central vac bag is, can and will fit your Eureka Mega Boss. Prices range on these bags anywhere from $12-$20 for packages of 3. Generally you will replace a bag once every 3-4 months.

Good luck,
Mark

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

The switch/lever that adjusts brush broke


yes this is a replaceable part, but you are going to have to order the button as well as the carpet/hardwood setting cam thats just below the button on the inside of the machine, under the hood. the best bet would be to go by your local vac shop or to see if you can order these item's online from hoover. i have checked for you and on there web site i cannot find the part num. for you. i'm sure that someone can help you at hoover or your local vac shop.

Is there a manual for the hoover windtunnel Mach 3.8? thanks


if you go to hoover.com and look under download manuels. when it asks you for the model num. for your machine, put it in and push enter/search. if it's the pic. that i see and model num. U6437-900, you will need to put U6439-900 instead.( when putting in the model num. you don't have to put the dash in) i've checked for you and your model num. doesn't show, but the one that i have provided will be almost the same one has yours, but maybe a color difference and some tools extra. the manuel should work for you though. hope this helps

Wind Tunnel U6436-900 power switch is always on. Vacuum will not turn off.


the switch is the problem. if the machine is under it's warrenty take it to your local vac shop if they can do the warrenty. if it's not then you can order the switch and i can walk you through replacing it. you will need to order a switch kit and i beleive the part num. is #40309033 but the num. might have changed

Have a Sears shop vac, mod 113.172. The motor doesn't take in


If the motor turns, you should have suction. Put the hose on the exhaust side of the motor if there is a connection, and try to blow it out. If you can't, try using a garden hose or toilet snake to clear the hose. IF the hose is clear, and the problem continues, check the float in the cage below the motor. It should be down at the bottom of the cage. Also, if you haven't been using a bag or foam cover for the cage, it is possible for leaves to clog the motor.
