Either you aren't getting the top on correctly so it will latch, or there maybe a problem with the latches. You should have a one year warranty on this, take it back to Sears and have them look at it.

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,
Shastalaker7

Good day!

Try to see the motor and the carbon brush that connected to it..

This are the step on how to open or remove the cover of the vacuum to reveal the motor.

  1. Take off the top panel.
  2. Loosening all screws that you will see inside that top panel.
  3. After that, the top cover of the vacuum release and the image of the motor reveal.
  4. Now try to look at the motor and remove it to the unit by unscrewing it.
  5. Next, try to spin it manually using your 2 fingers and hold the plate then spin it.If the plate is hard to spin,the motor is need to re-align.
  6. To re-align the motor you have to loosen the screws at the 4 corners then release the rotor then back again.
  7. After that,clean the bushing of motor and the rotor and apply the motor oil for lubrication.Then re-install it and tighten the screws on the 4 corners while you re-align the rotor.
  8. Use a rubber mallet to align the rotor,hit the body of the motor while you tighten the 4 corners screws.
  9. After that spin the plate again to test the alignment,if the plate spin it smoothly.the alignment is OK.
  10. After that you have to test the resistance of the motor to make sure that the carbon brush is contact to the armature of the rotor.Use a multimeter (range in ohms) then point the test probe directly to the carbon brush wire.It should have not more than 25 ohms depends on the horse power of the motor.
  11. When the reading is open the contact of the carbon brush is reaching the armature of the rotor.Replace the carbon brush.
If you accomplish all of the steps above and the you found a defective parts.Test the vacuum by powering it ON.

Thank you very much and wish you luck.

The filter is only for dry use. When you are picking up water etc with it, don't use any filters. They get ruined.

I ran over the cord to the vac with my lawn mower ,I need to replace the damaged cord with a new one. How do I remove the old cord?


You need to remove the screws that are in the location of where the wire goes into the vacuum. Then you will see a cord grip and connectors for the wires.

Genie 400PC 16 gal shop vac but can't find filters


If you need paper filters, you can easily use a bag filter cut in half, and have less dust clouds than the original filter. Remember to use the lock ring. Generic ShopVac mini's have the same filter in foam.
