Having problems with your Shop Vac (464-38-10) Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

Shop vac has something plugging hose, I can't disconnect hose

\015 The shop vac works, I was using it, but must have sucked up something, hose is now plugged. I don't know how the hose disconnects. I tried pulling it out, it seems to be screwed in, I tried unscrewing. Inside the canister is a square part, it appears that it might pull out to disconnect hose, but I can't get it out either.\015\012\015\012Maybe it cause I'm getting old and don't have the strength to do whatever needs to be done. I did get a hammer, thinking I should just put the thing out of its misery! ! Any ideas? And if I get hose disconnected, whats best plan to clear blockage? Thanks!!\015

Answers :

The hose just pushes in. You should be able to just twist the hose and pull it out. After you get it out, try attaching it to the discharge side and try to blow the obstruction out. If that doesn't work, try running a fishing pole or something inside the hose.

My shop vac is plugged. The hose is clear. The filter is removed. The filter bag is not installed. It still won't draw a suction. It sounds like it is plugged. The motor whines at a higher-than-usual pitch. What can I do?

Turn off the vac, take the head off of it and remove the filter paper. Inside, there's a white ball (bigger than golf ball, smaller than baseball) that's inside a cage. This is designed to keep water out of the blower when the vac tips over, and sh ... Vacuums

I have an old Shop Vac model 3331.5. This is a 12 gallon 1.5 hight peak shop vac with a detachable blower. After many years I decided to use the blower feature, but have lost the lost the manual. Question; how do I attach the hoses to the blower? The motor has that cap on it the direct the flow of air in one direction and the wide hoses do not fit over it. I may be missing a part, but I would think the directional cap would have to come off anyway.

Remove the cap that directs the air and insert the hose in there. ... Vacuums

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. Thanks.

No suction Hello - any help with this would be much appreciated! I just changed the bag and filters. The machine runs, seems normal, but there is no suction. There is no blockage of the hose, as indicated by the fact that that little viewer window above where the hose connects to the unit is not showing the red portion that it shows when there is something blocking the hose (god, this is hard to describe!). If I disconnect the hose and put my hand over the hole, I feel some suction. But

Well, it actually sounds like there is a blockage. Try removing your hose and dropping something through it, like a quqrter. If it comes through, no clog. If it is clogged, I believe that machine has a blower on the upper part of the cleaner (mayb ... Miele S514 Solaris Electro Plus Vacuum
