Oreck model BB870-AS - I was vaccuming when the vac shut off. The motor just spooled down and nothing more since. I have opened the case. Have power at the switch, and to the motor, but can't get a voltage reading to the common lead at the motor. Is there a fusible link, or something similar in that lead that might have burned out? Thanks!

I have a Craftsman wet dry vac with blower capability (22 L). While I was using it to **** up water, the water came out of the blower hose. Now I can't get it to work as a vacuum. What can I do to fix this problem? Is there a toggle switch somewhere that allows me to choose vacuum or blower? Also, will the vacuum still work without the filter nut attached to the plate? Please let me know at your earliest convenience. Thank you.

I have a 6 gallon shop wet or dry vac. The dust and dirt comes out around the base of the motor fin, not around the tank top. Now what? Oh I lost the filter around the drum that holds the ball, so I wrapped a rag around it and made it secure. Respectively: TOM

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!

No power to sensor SR 12. I also have cleaned rollers and filters and bags. I have reset the handle. When I hit the power the check brush and full bag lights flash once. That is the only power that is getting through.The unit was in storage for a bit and got wet but its been drying off for a couple months. Is there something I can check or replace. Its a great Vac.

I checked fuse, all o.k. checked continuity for plug, o.k. removed wires for bag full switch...motor wont run. I wired motor directly power cord...motor runs. Thinking it must be the circuit board, how do I bypass it or test it?
