Having problems with your Ridgid 9 Gallon Wet/Dry Shop Vac 96882 Canister Vacuum ?

My wet dry vac is spewing soapy water out of the hole on top. I got it secondhand- so the soap is from the filter, from the previous user...help my basement is very wet!


Answers :

You are going to have to take the filter off the bottom before you use the vacum for sucking up water. I usually take the filteroff for vacuuming water anyway but the soap has to be in the filter remove the filter and **** up the water.

Replacing filter Got a Filter Queen Majestic vacuum from my inlaws when they moved overseas. I am in middle of vacuuming, got a weird noise, so opted to check and clean the filter for first time.

In other words, I am shocked to see that the dirt goes not INTO the filter, but outside of it into the bottom portion (that I call the

Hello! I purchased the cascade 170 internal filter for my tadpole this past Tuesday. All seemed to be well until I returned home from work this Sunday morning to find him dead. There was a film of little white bubbles all of the top layer of the water. The filter was submersed however it appeared that some of the water had evaporated but was still over the top of the filter. Is there a problem with the filter or the level of water?

Now it has happened again and ruined another filter. Do you know what could be causing this issue? Can the filter be cleaned or will a new one be

I had used Dyson DC08 to **** out a wet car carpet. A few days later when using the V/C, there was a burning smell. Subsequently I washed the flexible hose, changed the pre-filter and post filter , but I wrongly put the pre-filter in the spot for the post filter. When the V/C was next used, there was again a burning smell and sparks. The filters were switched, but the V/C would not re-start. What shall I do?
