Operation (continued)
Dry Materials
1. The filter must always be in correct
position to reduce the risk of leaks and
possible damage to Vac. Make sure
that the filter is completely covering the
filter cage and that the retainer band is
as close to the lid as possible. Make
sure there are no gaps between the
filter and the lid. (See illustration).
It is very important to assemble the
filter to the cage without allowing any
possible leaks or tears. Any leaks will
allow the picked up media to be blown
out of the blower port and back into
the surrounding
WARNING: Do not operate without
filter cage and float, as they prevent
liquid from entering the impeller and
damaging the motor.
1. Removal of the filter is highly
for wet pickups.
2. This Wet/Dry Vac is equipped with a float
mechanism which will rise automatically
to cut off the airflow when the liquid in
the drum reaches a predetermined level.
When this happens, turn off Vac, unplug
the power cord, and empty the dust
drum. You will know that the float has
shut the airflow off because the suction
ceases and the motor noise becomes
higher in pitch, due to increased motor
speed. The liquid capacity may vary with
the rate of pickup.
IMPORTANT: To reduce the risk of
damage to the Vac, do not run motor with
float in raised position.
2. When using your Vac to pick up very
fine dust, it wilt be necessary for you to
empty the dust drum and clean or
replace the filter at more frequent
intervals to maintain peak Vac
NOTE: A dry filter is necessary to pick up
dry material. If you use your Vac to pick
up dust when the filter is wet, the filter wilt
clog quickly and be very difficult to
clean.In case the filter gets wet, replace it
before continuing to do dry pickups.
