Stinger Wet/Dry Vac There is NOTHING blocking the hose or the route to the container, but all of a sudden when I turn it on, the noise is so incredibly LOUD I can not use it anymore. Any ideas of what could be wrong, and is it fixable or just toss it ?

To PETMOMBR I recently had the same problem, I contacted Emerson Tool Co to see if a replacement for the blow wheel is available,and sadly it is not. I was told that the Rigid vacs do have replacement parts and some with a lifetime warranty.
Had my vac for approx 10 yrs, I would say I got my moneys worth. In all, I'd say it's a toss, time to get a new one.

I have Ridgid wet/dry shop vac, I was vacuuming


Did you have a paper/cardboard filter attached to the top part of the unit? Sounds like you didn't have a filter or the silicate material got past it and into the motor and windings. Bad news if this is the case. Try taking the top part off, turn it on to see if it runs without the bottom tank section. Double check to see if your vac has a fuze. If it won't go on you'll need to dismantle the upper unit and clean it all out. Hand turn the motor and see if it easily turns or is sluggish. My wife used my wet/dry vac without the filter and wrecked it with sheetrock dust into the motor. I dismantled the top, cleaned it twice and it's still no good. By the way, generally you have to take the paper filter out if you are vacuuming wet up. If you leave the paper filter on and vacuum wet up, the paper filter will get wet, shred and get pulled into the upper motor unit. A wet/dry vac isn't really made to pump water (by the gallons) out of places, so don't expect that. Okay yes you can often hook up an outlet hose to the drain port at the back of the tank and vacuum quantities of water, but it's not really made to do this.

I have a Craftsman wet dry vac with blower capability (22 L). While I was using it to **** up water, the water came out of the blower hose. Now I can't get it to work as a vacuum. What can I do to fix...


Most wet dry vacs have a ball float that blocks the vacuum when it is full of liquid. Yours sounds as if it is full or the ball has gotten stuck in the up, or blocking position.

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

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

Have a Sears shop vac, mod 113.172. The motor doesn't take in


If the motor turns, you should have suction. Put the hose on the exhaust side of the motor if there is a connection, and try to blow it out. If you can't, try using a garden hose or toilet snake to clear the hose. IF the hose is clear, and the problem continues, check the float in the cage below the motor. It should be down at the bottom of the cage. Also, if you haven't been using a bag or foam cover for the cage, it is possible for leaves to clog the motor.

Set up the shop vac to pick up water


I figured I had nothing to lose so I just started vacuuming. I thought I had to turn the end of the hose that connects to the shop-vac around (which I did so that it brought the water down to the 'bucket'. Other than that, I even went to Yahoo Answers and asked for input. The answers were - just vacuum, they didnt think there was anything to do with the vacuum to set it up for wet vac. I had removed the cloth filter used for dry vacuuming so I was ok with that. I also saw a YouTube video that said basically to remove the cloth filter. Ok .... that was not so difficult. Thank goodness too.
