There is a float inside vacuum that will prevent the vacuum from sucking water if tank is full.

open the top of the vacuum. remove ONLY the filter element. There should be a ball about a two inch diameter inside the cage. It's purpose is to shut off the vacuum flow when water reaches a high in the canister.

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.

thanks...

Yes you should remove the filter for liquids. If the filter is not removed the internal float stop will not operate correctly. This will lead to the liquid being drawn up into the impeller and around the motor.
However I still like to have something in place because in most instances the liquid you vacuum up will not be without some solids. So I like to use a foam insert. Places like Home Depot carries a universal insert that works great.
Hope that helps.

Acorns in top of Shop-vac


Leave it outside for the squirrels and mice to remove the acorns. It is unlikely the acorns passed through the filter and fans. Can you see them to know they are in the top of the vac?

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

Using shop vac 52722-90 for wet applications


yes, the foam filter is what you should use, also make sure you remove any bag, or paper filter, the water would make it fall apart.

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.
