Hi, W/D here.
Every so often, people get a bit twisted up about this website, thinking that they have to pay for advise. What it is, is, those things are options, but if you just want to just throw out your question and wait for a response, it's free. And, here we are.
Go to http//www.searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number. This site will have exploded diagrams and parts lists for your vacuum, and will probably have a button link to your manual that you can download (for free!). Enjoy. Thanks for using FixYa, where folks really try to help!
Best regards, --W/D--

I bought my first craftsman 9 gallong wet/dry vac - i do not know how to operate it and I don't want to break anything. I have a pamphlet but it is still confusing. can I pour a few gallons of water into...


Hello again.
When it says wet vacuuming, it means that the vacuum will pick up water, not dispense it. When you are using the vacuum to pick up water, you'll need to remove the paper filter element under the motor, inside the canister, to avoid ruining it. When the filter is removed, you will see a plactic ball inside a cage under the motor. It's purpose is to float up on the surface of the water being vacuumed up, and prevent the motor from getting water into it. You'll be able to tell when the canister is full; the noise the vacuum makes will change and sound higher. Also, the suction at the hose will quit. At that point, shut off the vacuum and drain the water.
Be sure to replace the paper filter when you swap back from liquids to solids.
Best regards, --W/D--

Older model shop.vac parts/owners manuel


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

How do you change the ridgid 9 gallon wet/dry shop vac from a dry to wet vac? Is it simply changing the hose to the back fitting?


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
