Question and Answers

Q:

Is my wet/dry vacuum that was used without a filter ruined if it started to smell like it was burning?

A:

If the vacuum was used for dry materials without using the filter, then the vacuum could be damaged. This could be why you detected the burning smell. If this is the case, I don't recommend continuing to use this vacuum. I would buy a new vacuum.

If the unit was properly used for vacuuming liquids without the filter in place, then the motor could have overheated. This could create a burning smell. If you are certain that it is not permanently damaged, then you could replace the filter and continue to use it.
