SOURCE: burned out motor on QPL625 Shop Vac

well if you can find the motor ( find a place that deals with the manufacturer directly so you get the right part ) and it isnt to expensive, most shop vacs are pretty easy, if you look under the top you should see about four screws, remove those and the top should come of giving you access to the motor, take note about the wires and what they hook up to. i doubt the motor is fastend down other than that.

SOURCE: Trying to remove motor from wet-dry

Hi Dan:
I am not familiar with this model but some of the consumer wet vac models are build with a module and motor as one part. You will need to replace the entire module

SOURCE: shop-vac model 90L550A motor wont run

Yes replacing the link would work, but that would not fix the cause. You have either pulled the wiring to the point of pulling apart the connection or there is a short. Which would be in the way of a grounding effect causing the link to heat and melt. A safty issue to be sure. Check all contact with housing and motor to make sure there is not an underlying problem to start with. Unpluged of course

Does shopvac series 90ln have brushes in motor & how to replace them


A lot of shop vac motors have brushes, due to the motor's power needs. Unplug it (obv) and get to taking off all the covers until it's just you and the motor. On most shop vacs, you shouldn't need to remove the impeller (fan), and it's better just left alone. The brushes are usually just under spring tension.

Need new switch for Shopvac QSP Pro 10 gallon unit


I just went through the same problem with a Shop Vac. The switch is easy to replace but not easy to find. After removing the switch, I found a match made by Sigma Switches. They directed me to contact a local RV dealer and look in either their Coast Supply or Stag/Parkway Supply catalogs for the appropriate switch (an H2-28 in my case for a QPL45 Shop Vac). After ordering the switch and $5 later, it snaps in like the original with no problems. Certainly beats $70 for a whole new motor assembly.

MY SHOP VAC STOPPED WORKING AFTER USING IT FOR A WHILE


If by stopped working you mean that it no longer has any suction, then check the hose for a clog and also clean all the filters.

If you mean that it literally stopped running, then the most common cause is a faulty switch. If the machine is still under warranty, contact Shop Vac for a replacement motor, Switches for shop vacs are not available, only replacement motors. If the machine is not under warranty you can either replace the motor or the whole machine.

Old red and black Genie Shop Vac
Posted by girl power on Jun 10, 2008
A Wheel or disk has come off of the motor. I would like to get a copy of the user manual to see if I can determine where it came off of. This Genie Shop Vac was given to us from my father-in-law.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You can always check with the manufacturer Shop Vac to get an owner’s manual for the older Genie Shop Vac would be @ the Shop Vac Website and or Customer Service of which I will give you @ the bottom of the response. Other wise check with your local vac dealer in your area. 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.

Shop Vac just stopped


If you remove the motor, you will see that the wires that go from the switch to the brushes. On one side there is one wire connected directly to the brush. On the other side the wire goes to a plastic plug with a second wire going to the brush. This is probably where the problem is. This is a fusible link and it has most likely melted creating an open in the circuit. I put a piece of solder where the link was and the motor ran BUT the brushed arced like a sparkler. Upon further examination the brushes were crumbling apart. I have been unable to find replacement brushes.
This machine has a five year warranty. I called Shop Vac Customer Service 1-888-822-4644 and they sent me a new motor.
I had a Shop Vac QL50EIC which had exactly the same problem but the warranty was expired so that I had to buy another motor for about $50.
