Question and Answers

Q:

For Shop Vac model 113179430 Is there only one filter that is used for both wet and dry?

A:

Thank you for your question.

There is not a separate filter for the shop vac. Most of the time the filer is removed when vacuuming water but it can be left in when vacuuming small amounts of water. After you have finished remove the filer and let it dry. I have provided you with the instructions from the manual below. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

Wet/Dry Vac Stopped

A:

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 .

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
