I have Ridgid wet/dry shop vac, I was vacuuming


Did you have a paper/cardboard filter attached to the top part of the unit? Sounds like you didn't have a filter or the silicate material got past it and into the motor and windings. Bad news if this is the case. Try taking the top part off, turn it on to see if it runs without the bottom tank section. Double check to see if your vac has a fuze. If it won't go on you'll need to dismantle the upper unit and clean it all out. Hand turn the motor and see if it easily turns or is sluggish. My wife used my wet/dry vac without the filter and wrecked it with sheetrock dust into the motor. I dismantled the top, cleaned it twice and it's still no good. By the way, generally you have to take the paper filter out if you are vacuuming wet up. If you leave the paper filter on and vacuum wet up, the paper filter will get wet, shred and get pulled into the upper motor unit. A wet/dry vac isn't really made to pump water (by the gallons) out of places, so don't expect that. Okay yes you can often hook up an outlet hose to the drain port at the back of the tank and vacuum quantities of water, but it's not really made to do this.

I can't find the owner's manual to our shop vac. What's involved in converting it from a dry vac to a wet vac? I think it does both, but I've only ever used it to clean the car.


generally you remove the filter and just use the foam sleeve (if it has one) it should have a float ball in a cage under the filter. this is to keep the water from going into the motor if it gets too full. That is pretty much it. You should have it plugged into a GFCI outlet when using it for wet pick up, also do not pick up flammable or hazardous liquids.

Craftsman wet dry vac no longer sucking enough to use, cleaned the filter, sounds strong but barely works??


Buy a new filter. Make sure hose is cleaned out. Sometimes if the filter is wet and not allowed to dry it will do that. Also make sure hose is on the right outlet

Using my wet/dry vac - less than 5 hours on the thing - it just stopped - can't get it to switch back on. Tried different plugs - different days. Although I purchased over 2 years ago, it has hardly been...


It may have gotten hot if you went too long before cleaning the filter. It sounds like you may have burnt it up. I hope not! You might also check to see if you tripped a breaker on the electrical panel. Try plugging it in an outlet that is not on the same circuit. If it works in another outlet, then you have just tripped a breaker.

Good Luck!

Ridgid shop vac is not sucking


Check the intake hose for a blockage. Attach the hose to the exhaust outlet and turn the vacuum on. If no extracted air is blowing out of it the hose is totally clogged up

Just be sure to remove the paper filter bag that fits over the foam filter before vacuuming liquids. It's easy to get it wet and they don't work very well when that happens.

the neoprene sleeve used as the filter may have come off the cage. there's a plastic ring that fits over the filter and cage and holds it in place. as far other suggestions, use an old cotton sleeve from a pajama top. tie it off one end, slip it over the cage and fasten with a large wide rubber band.
