Staring from the failrue of the power cord,the main plug,t he main switch each of the sections must be tested for continutiy before we can conclude.
SInce it is clear case of power failure the voltage must reach the motor,if not back trace to the point decribed above.
If voltage is at the motor without any reponse then the motor can be faulty.Checked also faulty surge/capacitors.

My Shop-Vac 5870400 was working just fine, and then one day while i vac the floor its just stop working, tried to turn on/off a few times, swicth to different outlet. i did even tried to open it, but found...


Same thing just happened to mine. My solution is to get another one but a different brand. I think it should have lasted longer than four years of fairly light usage. From what I read, if it does as we both described, the motor is shot and not worth replacing.

It electrically stopped- no blockage or horrid noise just won't work! About 4 years old - and yes I have changed the fuse. Any answers?


have an electrician check the switch on the vac. probably went bad. also look for broken wires or connections.

you have tried a different outlet, right? also inspect power cord for any damage.

No power to my vac.


This sounds more to be a switch or motor failure if the outlet is OK, and the unit will not work.

Vacuum working perfectly and everything stopped. Went to the utility room and found a plastic bag on top of the equipment. Tried the reset button, etc. nothing works.


sounds like a bad relay in the tank just a simple repair but should be done by a vacuum tech or electrician. Could be a motor is nothing is starting at all, but not as likely.

Try checking the hose connector cord (short cord from bezel outlet to hose). Also, check the prongs on on extension wands.

MY SHOP VAC STOPPED WORKING AFTER USING IT FOR A WHILE


If by stopped working you mean that it no longer has any suction, then check the hose for a clog and also clean all the filters.

If you mean that it literally stopped running, then the most common cause is a faulty switch. If the machine is still under warranty, contact Shop Vac for a replacement motor, Switches for shop vacs are not available, only replacement motors. If the machine is not under warranty you can either replace the motor or the whole machine.
