Ushally you will get some dust flying out but should stop after a bit. most of the time there is a foam filter to go into the machine this needs to be cleaned alot and you can get paper filters as well for them ushally.

but these have to be removed if useing it as a wet vac. when the filter is on you should not beable to see the ball inside its cage on the inside.

hope that helps

Can I use shop-vac without bag 5gal5.5 hp


If you are using it for wet pick up, you would not use the bag. If you are using it for dry pick up, I would recommend using the bag to keep dust from going thru the vacuum and back into the area you are trying to vacuum.

the fact that it blows dirt out when you use it is a simple solution just simply clean the canister out really well and replace the filter it is either ripped warn or you simply do not have one on the unit and as for getting a users manual just go strait to the shop vac website and go from there and you will be able to find what you want and download a manual for free

We just moved in - the house is about 9 years old. I have a Eureka Mega Boss central vac - looks like model # is CV20220. 12.4 amps, 120 volts. Can't figure out what type of bags I need. Can you...


Well, for this unit you will need any of the following bags,

Eureka genuine Part# 90610
Eureka replacement (Central vac bag)
another genuine bag style called CV-1, and/or CV-2
Kenmore Central vac bags

Most of the bags there are available at your local vacuum shop, and sometimes even Sears. The Kenmore central vac bag is, can and will fit your Eureka Mega Boss. Prices range on these bags anywhere from $12-$20 for packages of 3. Generally you will replace a bag once every 3-4 months.

Good luck,
Mark

There is lots of dust under the refrigerator but I can't reach it to clean it. Does the bottom tray pull out to get at it?


Hi,
The bottom tray on most units will pull out.
However I have found that there are some better ways to getthe dust and dirt out from under there.
A good shop vac with a crevice tool is a great way to get in there.
Another way that I have often cleaned under neath is to use an air compressor with an air nozzle at high pressure. You can blow everything clean and then vacum up the dirt.
It is very important to keep things clean so that your compressor stays cool and the coils have good air for heat transfer.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

I have a 6 gallon shop wet or dry vac. The dust and dirt comes out around the base of the motor fin, not around the tank top. Now what? Oh I lost the filter around the drum that holds the ball, so I wrapped a rag around it and made it secure. Respectively: TOM

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The bag is not going to do the job as well as the filter around the drum that hold the ball. The filter that goes under the motor does a lot of the filtering or you would have to do some type of cage filter then a foam filter and then a paper bag, I f you have a cartridge filter then the paper bag can go over the cartridge filter , B4 you do anything – id you have some type of compressor – use it to blow out the dust and dirt out of the motor, then buy a cartridge filter and then a paper bad with a rubber band to hold it on. This will do the best filtering . Check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer and bring in the top of your shop vac so that they can fix a proper cartridge / paper bag filter – or the cage frame with a foam filter with a paper bag. 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.
