Not likely.The on-off switches are cheap plastic, and you will likely find the switch, the plug, the wire, or the motor has died.
Sorry.

SOURCE: DEWALT DW795 Vac filters

IT looks like the part number is 429704-56 and the Dewalt site shows list price being $51.68. You should be able to order that filter at a DeWalt dealer in your area, hopefully for a discount.

Otherwise, there is here online:

SOURCE: Can't install a bag for my Craftsman 16 gallon shop-vac

Well, good news, you don't need a bag! The trash just settles to the bottom of the bucket and you just dump it out.

I own one of these -- it has many little operational anoyances -- like wheels falling off, lid popping off, etc. If you run into these scenarios and want help on fixes, drop me a line.

Would you please rate my response. I think you'll see some icons at the bottom of the post to enter a rating.

SOURCE: how do you change the ridgid 9 gallon wet/dry shop

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

How do I remove the filter from a Rigid 4 gal portable wet/dry vac


James the attached link/video shows filter just pulls off. I also put a link to the manual and it show the filter held on with large plastic nut, which would have to be removed first.
