Having problems with your Shop Vac 85L500 Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

When dry vacuuming, my shop vac is shooting dust out the back. What do I need to do?


Answers :

Sounds like you need to re-install the air filter so there is a tight seal between it and the vacuum. You may have removed it to do the wet vacuuming and then did not re-install it properly to do the dry vacuuming.

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!

I've been using a small shop vac in the seller to vacuum up dust, sawdust etc. I have emptied the inside and the filter looks laden with dust. It does not "****" any longer. What is wrong and what do I do to fix it?


You have to clean the filter too. Use an air hose to clean it or brush it off with a stiff brush or you can wash it if it isn't paper. As a last resort you can get a new one. ... Shop Vac 925-13 Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum

I have a 6 gallon shop wet or dry vac. The dust and dirt comes out around the base of the motor fin, not around the tank top. Now what? Oh I lost the filter around the drum that holds the ball, so I wrapped a rag around it and made it secure. Respectively: TOM
