SOURCE: USE GENIE WET DRY VAC WITH OR WITHOUT PAPER LINER?

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} The PB15 uses a fairly large pleaded paper filter for dry use, but it is an odd ball, as most of these type filters are held in place bay some sort of plate, and plastic nut. The PB15 uses a filter that has a bottom, and is pressed into place. For wet use, I would see if you can use the foam filter for one of the Craftsman small W/D vacs, like the old 2 gallon model, held in place with a rubber band, which is slipped over the cage with the float ball. It needs to be sealed across the bottom. That should cut down on spray making its way to the motor. The PB15 does have one good feature as the vacuum inlet has an elbow which keeps the water from being sucked straight into the motor intake, so the foam filter should do the job pretty well. I’d also look at the bag and rubber band that is used on some of the smaller Craftsman vacs, which sounds like what has been done on yours already. They are easy to find.

Because Genie no longer makes any vacuums or blowers, and did not keep a parts inventory to support owners of their products (a reason not to buy one of their garage door openers) it might be best in the long run to ‘garage sale’ the Genie, and buy a new vac from a brand that will be around for awhile. I have two Craftsmen, and one Ridgid, besides the PB15, which is going in the nest garage sale, for the above reason.

As far as your blower to vacuum problem -- The hose is moved from the blower outlet, which is the top black piece with the handle and switch, to the hole in the canister for vacuum. The intent of the PB15 was to use the top piece as a hand held electric leaf blower, or when attached to the yellow canister as a vacuum, when you use the hose attached to the canister.

afaik, Shop Vac only gives a general manual, which you can download off their website. All of their designs follow the same concept.

I need a manual for ridgid wet/dry vacs model #wd16500


Hello,

I was unable to find the model WD16500 instruction manual anywhere online. In fact I did even find a link to that products owners manual, but when I clicked through the page no longer exists on Ridgid's site. I was able to find the parts diagram for the WD16500, and the instruction manual for the WD16600 which is also a 16 Gallon Detach Wet/Dry Vac, also with a detachable blower, and the model that even replaced the WD16500.

I also left you the number to Ridgid if you'd like to contact them, they may be able to mail you a paper copy of the instruction booklet.

I hope this helps you:

Instruction Manual:

Parts Diagram:

Phone Number for the Ridgid Company:

If this was helpful, please be so kind to rate my answer as helpful, this is what keeps me coming back to Fixya to help people with their vacuum related questions. Thanks alot, I really do appreciate it.

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,
