Having problems with your Vacuums ?

First use, motor died (Ridgid SmartCart shop vac WD7000)

\015 Good evening! Very first time I used the Ridgid Smart Cart (WD7000), I vacuumed for about 10 minutes and the vacuum suddenly turned off. The outlet it was plugged into is a 20 ampo service outlet and works fine, and I was vacuuming a carpeted basement. I checked the dust bin, and it's assembled exactly how the directions specified, and some debris as expected in the bottom. The shop vac won't turn back on. Have I just gotten a bad one?\015\012Thanks!\015

I have an old Shop Vac model 3331.5. This is a 12 gallon 1.5 hight peak shop vac with a detachable blower. After many years I decided to use the blower feature, but have lost the lost the manual. Question; how do I attach the hoses to the blower? The motor has that cap on it the direct the flow of air in one direction and the wide hoses do not fit over it. I may be missing a part, but I would think the directional cap would have to come off anyway.

Remove the cap that directs the air and insert the hose in there. ... Vacuums

I just bought a shop vac to **** up the winter slop in the garage. the first time I used it, it worked perfectly but the 2nd and 3rd times I used it, it spits water from the exhaust. Why? It doesn't seem to have a plug/clog and I have the foam sleeve plus the circular paper filter on it, as per directions. Help!

We have a series 90S, 2.5 gallon Shop Vac. We used it for the first time to try and **** up water in the basement. Each time we turned it on, it would shut down after collecting less than 1" of water. We had to remove and squeeze out the foam sleeve each time, before it would work again (nowhere near 2.5 gallons!). Any ideas? Is the plastic sleeve that can move up and down inside, the float (poorest manual I've ever seen!)? Should there be a ball float that we're missing? Thanks for any s

My Shop Vac (Brand) Mdl#934-16-11 keeps shutting off while I'm dry vacuuming. I can turn it back on then it will shut off again. The filter is spotless, so that's not the issue. There isn't any reset buttons. The only thing I can think of is that the float for wet vacuuming is somehow being sucked up causing the the motor to be tripped off. The vacuum is only about a year and a half old and used only sparingly. Help!
