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

I did not get a manual with my vac. I am trying to soak up water from a water tank leak and water seems to go right trough the vac and water is coming out the blower hole. the tub is not full.


Answers :

There is a special sock that you need to buy for it. You can run the paper filter if your in a pinch but after that one time, that's it, that filter is ruined.
The paper filter is for dry vacuuming, the foam filter is for wet vacuuming, You have to have one or the other in place.
There are two ways to snap the cover onto the basket, only one is the right way.
Look to see that the baffle is facing the hose inlet hole.

\015\012The most common reason for lack of pick up is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front of the lid, and then snap the rear latch into place. Another reason is that the duct on th ... Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

Have a Eureka Power Plus 12.0 Amps Model 4702 Type A 120 volts and 60 HZ that there is something wrong that it isn't picking up right and you can actually feel the air coming out of it near where the bagless canister attaches. My thoughts are that a seal is missing around where the hole lines up when the cannister is locked in. This Vac was my Mom's and she passed away and I think a part went missing maybe when it was taken apart to clean the filter and empty the canister. Need to figure out if

The automatic drain hose is hooked up to the back of the unit, but when the bucket is full, the automatic pump does not work. The automatic pump should come on and empty the bucket, but it does not come on unless the water is siphoned manually through the tube. Then the pump come on and empties the bucket. I have reattached the tube and still had to manually siphon the water through the tube. Any suggestions?


Any automatic pumps operate off a swith that is turned on when the water rises. They normally have some type of ball lift, that will raise the switch when water is high and then drops with the water and shuts the pumps off. It sounds like yours is ... Vacuums

I got my bissell for $7.50 from a thrift store, if you can believe THAT. Used it for the first time today after reading the manual online first. After filling the clean water bladder full of hot water and setting everything up the way I wanted, proceeded to turn things on and go for it. Well, the water/solution just kept coming and coming, without my finger on the trigger. Obviously something is jammed in the open position but where? The trigger moves freely.


This is the answer I got from Bissell:Please\015\012check the gasket at the bottom of the tank to ensure it is attached and\015\012not lodged in the reservoir of the machine. If this is not the problem,\015\012take the machine for i ... Bissell 8910 ProHeat Clear View Upright Vacuum

I have a new Hoover Dual V steam vac that I bought from a neighbor who only used it once. I have only used it once since then and it worked great. This time, because I am pregnant, I bought some non-toxic cleaner that was much thicker than the very watery Hoover soap. This vac has a wash option and a rinse option. The rinse option works (sprays and sucks properly), but the wash cycle doesn't at all-neither soap nor water comes out. Nothing comes out, but it still sucks. I took everything o

I just bought kaz model K76P (M) humidifier in Kyoto. I filled it to the right water level (a bit below) and plugged it in (nothing else is plugged in at that socket). The light comes on, but the water doesn't heat up. I can't read Japanese so can't read the instruction manual but it seems a simple procedure: fill with water, set the heating thing the water, plug in. Am I missing something or is the humidifier defect?

No water I have a Bissell 1694 and it is not ejecting the water cleaner solution out of the front of the machine. The belts are ok. The two nozzels and hoses are not clogged and do not have any holes. I think the pump still works because water still comes out of the brush tool.


It is easy to take the top off. Mine has just 6 screws. Then you can see all the tubing and parts. For example, you can unclip the nozzles and see if water flows. Try blowing through the nozzle to see if it is plugged.\015\012\015\012Some people s ... Bissell Powersteamer 1694 Upright Vacuum

My Bissell Quicksteamer Model 1960-R won't spray cleaning solution. I have cleaned it and taken apart the whole thing. I can't find any problems. The holes are not cloged where the water comes out as I disconnected it and blew through it to be sure. The lines show water trying to go through. It is as if it doesn't have enough power to pump the water out when I squeeze the trigger. I am thinking it is the pump thing but can't find a replacement part for it.

Lately we've been having plumbing problems to where our washing machine floods up our bath tub and toilet. And it happens while we have the washing machine on of course. Another problem is that whenever we are taking a shower our tub starts to clog up and water starts pouring out from the bottom of our toilet. We had a plumber come by to root out our pipes just last week and it was fine for about 3 days. And now the problem is back and driving me crazy. WHAT IS WRONG AND HOW CAN I FIX IT??

Took my Miele Solaris canister vac in for repair as it wouldn't turn on. The repairman said to come back the next day for the estimate. I called and he said I needed a new cord reel and it would be $189. I drove to his shop and said I would wait to do it later, that I wasn't ready to spend that much. When I came home, it started right up but has no power and doesn't sound right, the noise of the motor is real soft, not as loud as before. I have this terrible feeling that when we decided not to
