Q:

shop vac filter 113179430 Craftsman 8 gallon wet/dry vac

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

The filter in the parts list, part number 17816, is the cheaper filter for this wet/dry vac. There is also a high efficiency Hepa filter, part number 17912, but it is $10 more. 

We do not have any other options besides those to filters for this 8 gallon wet/dry vac. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

Wet/Dry Vac Stopped

A:

I know that problems like this can be very inconvenient, espeically when you need to use the machine. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I have found a link to your owner's manual. This will provide some troubleshooting for the unit. I would suggest that you try a different outlet and see if you are getting any power. Also, make note if it is making any noise. This will helps us to give you a more detailed answer. I hope this helps.

The manual is not very helpful. I actually determined what the problem was after I posted: the weld connecting the braided copper wire to one of the motor's brushes had failed. I reconnected the brush and the vac works again. This sort of repair is no longer contemplated. I know that you can still buy replacement brushes for some electric motors (generally power tools), but figuring out which one might fit in any given motor is not easy unless you're a repair shop with a large stock of parts for trial and error fitting.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the vacuum. I have looked up model number you have submitted. This model does not have a reset. The problem could be a defective cord, on/off switch, or motor. To determine the problem you will need a volt ohmmeter to make voltage checks. Working with live electrical current can be very hazardous and possibly deadly. Testing voltage output requires working with electrical current. Do not attempt this measurement without the proper tools and safeguards.

If the problem is a defective motor, you will need to replace the vacuum because the motor is no longer available.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

A:

Peter,

I will be happy to assist you. I recommend unplugging the vac. Then use a hair dryer to dry the inside of the motor. On medium setting, hold the hair dryer near the motor vents. Just be careful not to overheat the plastic. Once you think the motor is dry, let it sit for 24 hours just to be sure. Then plug the unit in and check the operation. If it still does not sound right I recommend replacing the motor or the unit. The reason is the bearings might have gotten water in them and locking up. If you need further assistance, please reply below with the model number.

Thank you Mark
