    Are there two ports for the hose? If so just switch ports. If not then there may be a switch either on the top or inside the blower top itself.

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

When I stop the hoover it seems to deposit dust on the carpet. How can I stop this from happening?


It sounds like the vacuum is clogged, probably the hose. You'll need to remove the hose from the vacuum and use a vacuum with a blower, or an air pressure gun, to clear it. Do so from the tank side of the hose. You can also try placing the nozzle end of the hose to the tank and turning it on. This reverses the flow through the hose and may be enough to clear it.
Also, check the power nozzle where the hose attaches to it. There may be a clog there.

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

USE GENIE WET DRY VAC WITH OR WITHOUT PAPER LINER?

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.

Troubleshooting


Plug the hose into the other side of the unit. One end pushes air and the other side draws in the air. Now drywall dust will clog your filter quickly. Clean the filter often. Do not clean dust without the filter. It will get all over everything!

Losing suction filter clean,hoses clear,output blower good,but very poor suction


if the blower is much stronger than the suction, you may have an air leakwhere the cover fits on tank or possibly a warped tank or cover. feel all around the unit for air being drawn in somewhere besides the hose. try it without the hose on and block the inlet for a couple seconds to see if the unit leaks air in. also replace the filter , dont try to clean it, the pores clog and reduce suction and damage motor.
