USE GENIE WET DRY VAC WITH OR WITHOUT PAPER LINER?

\015 Hey, so I have a Genie wet/dry vac model PB15/120V/60Hz/6.5 Amps which I just got given my my uncle-- here's the thing, there's a small paper liner inside and I'm afraid to use it for sucking up liquids because of that. SHould I remove the bag and then use the vacuum? or just use it as is? Thanks\015

The PB15 uses a filter that has a\015\012bottom, and is pressed into place. For\015\012wet use, I would see if you can use the foam filter for one of the Craftsman\015\012small W/D vacs, like the old 2 gallon model, held in place with a rubber band,\015\012which is slipped over the cage with the float ball. It needs to be sealed across the bottom. That should cut down on spray making its way\015\012to the motor. The PB15 does have one\015\012good feature as the vacuum inlet has an elbow which keeps the water from being\015\012sucked straight into the motor intake, so the foam filter should do the job\015\012pretty well. I’d also look at the bag\015\012and rubber band that is used on some of the smaller Craftsman vacs, which\015\012sounds like what has been done on yours already. They are easy to find.

\015\012Because Genie no longer makes any vacuums or blowers, and did not keep a parts\015\012inventory to support owners of their products (a reason not to buy one of their\015\012garage door openers) it might be best in the long run to ‘garage sale’ the\015\012Genie, and buy a new vac from a brand that will be around for awhile. I have two Craftsmen, and one Ridgid, besides\015\012the PB15, which is going in the nest garage sale, for the above reason.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012As far as your blower to vacuum problem -- The hose is moved\015\012from the blower outlet, which is the top black piece with the handle and\015\012switch, to the hole in the canister for vacuum. \015\012The intent of the PB15 was to use the top piece as a hand held electric\015\012leaf blower, or when attached to the yellow canister as a vacuum, when you use\015\012the hose attached to the canister.
I wanted to clean out my wood burning stove ashes. When I turned the vacuum on, the ashes blew out the top???? Is there supposed to be a bag or filter to keep this from happening?

I have a 5.5 HP 8 gallon Stanley Shop Vac with the cartridge filter. The book says I can use the cartridge filter which is a kind of paper to use for wet vac. It did not come with the foam filter for wet vac so I am wondering if I use it for wet vac will the cartridge break up?

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.

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!
