Question and Answers

Q:

Craftsman substitute filter won't fit

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand your concern when the filter appears not to fit the vacuum.

Because this is a 1981 12 gal wet/dry vacuum it may be the problem.

However, when I look up the filter 73108 the replacement 17812 the manufacture say's it may look different but should functionally be a good replacement.

You may be right, it may require a little more force or twist to get the filter to seat and seal against the motor intake housing.

If you are not able to get it to fit perhaps you could send some pictures to compare the old filter to the new one.

Please reply with more detail if you need to.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
