If it didn't cost you too much i would throw it away and buy a new one.you might want to call a repair shop and get an idea what it would cost to repair.my guess it probably won't be worth it

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. There are only 2 ways that I can think of in answer to your question. Either you can replace the fan impeller or you have to replace the entire motor. You would have to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or contact the Shop Vac factory @ the website or to call the factory @ the phone 3 listed below; or check your owner’s manual.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Shop-Vac 6.0 hp Peak 12 Gallon 'Exploding' after 10 seconds of use. Happened twice on two different brand new Shop-Vacs.


Since you said you were sucking water out of a "trench" I would bet there was some debris in the trench that impacted the impeller on the vacuum and caused the metal impeller to fragment, taking the plastic pieces with it. It is highly unusual for this to occur on vacuums if some type of debris, such as a small stone or piece of metal does not reach the high speed impeller/fan. I suggest using either a foam sleeve over the filter cage, or an old nylon stocking if you can get one, to screen out the debris that will cause this condition.

Qul650 shop vac


In most of the current model Shop Vacs, the motor is virtually the last thing that will come off the top of the vacuum itself. There are no repair parts available for the motors, but if it's under warranty, the company will send you a complete new power unit., motor and all. All you'd have to do is unpack it and install it on the tank.

What makes a bissell vac 3130 throw out dirt instead of sucking it up? i just changed the belt that was broken.


Does your vac require you to twist the belt and fit it onto a shank on the impeller? If so twisting the wrong way will make your beater bar roll the wrong way and that will make it throw dirt out the front.

Parts list for model: EP754 The plastic  hose connecter from hose to vac cracked i need new connector


Shark vacuums generally are not repairable - in this case, Shark doesn't sell just the part; ya gotta buy the entire power head. And it costs more than the vacuum did new.

Shark's are considered throw-aways; when they break they're done.

It'd REALLY be nice if Linens 'N Things hadda told me that BEFORE I bought the vacuum.

And by the way, LOTS of EP754s break in the same way yours did.

Shop vac 90L400 stopped working won't start


I had the same problem with the same model. Turned out to be the thermal fuse on the motor housing, between the switch and the windings. Took it apart and replaced the melted solder with 14 guage copper wire. Works fine! No thermal protection but I don't use it for long at a time anyway. Check the switch for continuity, if good then check the thermal fuse for continuity. If good, it's the motor.

Has no suction


I just went through the same thing.  Your fan or impeller is probably broken off the shaft and no longer on the motor shaft.  My local repair shop wants $9 for the impeller and $29 to replace it. You will have to take the thing apart and put on a new fan or impeller blade and I'm still trying to do that to my vac.  I think I will have to heat the nylon impeller with a hair dryer to get it onto the shaft and then tighten the left hand nut. My vac is held together with torx screws so add a torx screwdriver to the price if you don't have one and want to do the job yourself.
