If the motor housing is all plastic and there is no metal the user could contact and potentially receive an electric shock from should a fault occur, the ground conductor if fitted, would be connected to the frame of the motor.

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: 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...

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

I have a rigid 16 gallon shop vac I plugged it in and pressed the toggle to on but nothing happens is there a reset somewhere


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.

Our BLB500, 12 gallon, 5.0 peak HP, Shop Vac won't come on.


From what I have heard, the switch on these units can sometimes be defective. Also, looking closely at the the AC cord may help determine if there is damage to it that should be repaired.

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

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.
