Having problems with your Shop Vac 201-13 Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

Shopvac 2010 I realize this is an older model but it is similar to the model selected. I'm trying to use the wet vacuum option but I no longer have the manual to tell me how to set it up. Any ideas?

Answers :

Just be sure to remove the paper filter bag that fits over the foam filter before vacuuming liquids. It's easy to get it wet and they don't work very well when that happens.
I have to agree with plantsman on this one. I have a wet dry shop vac as well, and that's all mine requires me to do. Also don't forget to clean out the sponge like filter. (If you have a reusable filter.)

Hello, I just bought a Bissell Powergroom (model 92L3-W) vacuum and a Bissell Proheat Pet (model 8910-3) deep cleaner and I love them both. My problem is, when we unpacked them we somehow lost the manuals; I think I had too many helpers that night – they may have gone out to the trash with the boxes. I need replacement manuals if you would be so kind as to help me out. Could you email me a manual for each of these two machines, or tell me exactly where to find them online? I’ve been looking, but

A family member recently gave me their Kenmore Vacuum Cleaner (model 35821) and I did not notice that the power cord was missing at first. I tried to look closely at the manual online to see if this was something I would be able to purchase or if the vacuum was no longer any good.

I just bought this vacuum at a second hand store. My girlfriend told me to grab it as it such a quailty product. How ever I can't find a model number or anything else. I need a manual please.

Good Morning, A friend recently gave me her Hoover windtunnel model U630-900 vacuum. It is a self propelled vac. It comes on but is hard to push and will not really pick up any dust particles on the carpet. It has a funny smell also. I saw where one of you Q & A you said to check the roller brush. I thought maybe a belt may be off or something, but I do not have a manual to know where to begin checking. Could you tell what to check and also if there is anywhere online to download the manua

We have a Bissell Proheat 2X (model 8920). The problem we are having is when water/soap is initially released (all settings) it continues to leak out the front water spray nozzles unit the water containers are empty. The vacuum works but can't keep up with the continuous water leaking out. Do you have any idea what is sticking open to allow the continued release of water when the machine is running? Thanks Rick

We have a Bissell Proheat Cleanshot 2X Model 9500 Steam carpet cleaner. The first time we used it things were great. The second time we used it it left tracks in the carpet. We have no idea what caused this. We tried using the machine on an entirely different carpet and it did the same thing. After vacuuming the carpet about 10 or 12 times, the tracks are still embedded in the carpet - HELP!!!! We're read and reread the manual and contacted customer service and received no help.

First things first. It's only the second time you have used the machine, so it must be fairly new. If you have a receipt and the unit is less than a year old you should take it to an authorized Bissell repair center and have the machine inspected und ... Vacuums

I had the vacuum cleaner question about the canister and the wand/powerhead... the Kenmore Progressive Vacuum canister model 116.25812 and the canister not powering off without unplugging the vacuum. The solution I received that they both run on their own switch so it is normal makes sense. However, is there a power switch on the canister anywhere? The only way for the canister to be turned off is by unplugging it. Any ideas? One would think there would be a switch. I am new to fixya and hope
