20 Most Recent Ridgid 9 Gallon Wet/Dry Shop Vac 96882 Canister Vacuum Questions & Answers


Always use the foam filter when using the Shop Vac, keep your filters clean and it will operate more smoothly. When sucking water I usually take the foam filter off as well as the cylinder filter

You press in the black cap in the middle of the filter while you pull up on the black "handles" around the edge of the filter. It just pops off.

You need to check the filter and make sure it's on all the way. To do this take the top off the vac, make sure the filter is all the way up and in place. There should be a plastic nut to hold it in place. If you are using it for fine dust particles such as drywall dust, you need a special filter for small particles. The filter that comes with the vac just won't do it!

You really cannot wash the paper filter. You can blow it out with an air hose if you have access to one, or vacuum it off with another vacuum. If it does get wet you should let it dry outside of the vacuum before you use it again.

Look for a clog. Motor may be overworking.
