Having problems with your Vacuums ?

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

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The bag is not going to do the job as well as the filter around the drum that hold the ball. The filter that goes under the motor does a lot of the filtering or you would have to do some type of cage filter then a foam filter and then a paper bag, I f you have a cartridge filter then the paper bag can go over the cartridge filter , B4 you do anything – id you have some type of compressor – use it to blow out the dust and dirt out of the motor, then buy a cartridge filter and then a paper bad with a rubber band to hold it on. This will do the best filtering . Check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer and bring in the top of your shop vac so that they can fix a proper cartridge / paper bag filter – or the cage frame with a foam filter with a paper bag. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

When I turn on my Kenmore Premier 4.5 Peak HP 10.0 Amp after about a minute of running I get a burning smell. When I opened up the compartment that holds the dust collection bag, and remove the bag I found a filter. The filter was minimally dusty and has been cleaned. After sniffing around, I could not identify the source of the smell.

Pensare Vaccum Hi: I have an older Pensare hand held vacuum. It's the T-Rex, mod # 1505. My daughter lost the filter with the plastic frame around it that goes inside.
