I was given a Shop Vac Mini Hang Up and don't have a manual. To vacuum wet or dry, do you use anything covering the inside part with the ball?

Stand in front of the vaccuum with the lable facing you, the 2 release levers are on the left and right sides, attached to the motor housing, which sits atop the tank/canister. Pull out and up on the levers, twist counter-clockwise, lift straight up and the motor housing will follow, leaving the tank/canister on the floor.

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.

SOURCE: how do you change the ridgid 9 gallon wet/dry shop

all you have to do is open it up and take the paper filter off and then it's a wet vac. If it has a foam over filter you leave that on

Shop vac stopped working


Motors have a thermal safety fuse in the field winding. If it overheats, it will blow and either can be replaced or the whole field winding will have to be replaced. It is wired and is not considered to be a user servicable item.

I just had the same problem, the vac wouldn't suck in. Turned out to be because the filter was WET. It works great when I take the filter off before sucking up water or liquids! Not sure if this applies in your case, but definitely something to keep in mind. : )

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.
