Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Why is my wet dry vaccum blowing and not sucking?


Answers :

The clog or the bag or canister is full. Clean or replace filters.
First of all, make sure you put the hose on the suction port. If it's blowing where it should be sucking, the polarity of the motor is backward; the wires are hooked up wrong.

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!
