Push the tabs on each side of the canister at the same time and pull down on the bottom(black part). You will see a light blue filter paper that is held on with a black plastic ring that is pushed all the way towards the motor. Pull that ring off and the blue filter paper comes off. You can buy new ones at Wal Mart, but it's only necessary after it starts getting ragged. Just take it outside and shake it real good and put back on the same way it was on before.

My shop-vac stopped mid-job with no warning


Maybe it over heated or the hose was jammed. Unplug it for a few minutes, check the hose for any stuck debris, then plug it back in. Shop vacs also come with a filter. If the filter is too dirty, it might have shut off as a safety precaution to not cause a fire. Follow directions to clean the filter. Hope this helped. Dee

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,

How to change upper filters?


Open the vac as though to change the cone and remove the plastic inner cone with the slotted screw at the bottom.. Underneath you will find a 5" disk , likely coated with fine dust.
That is the one which needs to be changed. Around that disc will be three more screws holding the upper housing onto the vac. These ones are accessible from inside, if changing the motor.
Below the handle of the vac there is a serial number ring and three screws in an offset triangle. If you remove these and the rubber cover for the toe switch, the vac housing will come off. This will reveal the `foam or cotton ``muffler``. You can replace it or wash and dry it if foam. It acts as a muffler more than a a filter....

I got a new filter for my Beam central vacuum. How do I replace it? Do I take off the top lid of the canister?


You would not normally need to replace the filter unless it is damaged. Access is from inside the tank itself. Remove the bucket and locate the finger loop on the existing filter. Pull toward the inside of the bucket. Replace the filer by setting in it's track and snapping tight to the wall of the vac. Unless damaged you can save and clean the old filter for reuse.
