Hi all, new member. Have a Ridgid WD18500 wet/dry vac. I use it about 10 hrs/week in a very dirty environment, so I definetley put it through its pace. After about 2-3 months use I noticed it wasn't pulling like before, and was starting to cut in and out. took a look at the fps and it was half way up. Took it apart to clean the filter and it was completely clogged. I washed it really well, let it dry in the sun for 2 days! Then blew dry/cleaned it again with my yard blower. Put it back in and went back to work, everythings great about half an hr. in I smell something burnt and boom, the vac goes down, wont restart. What did I do?? Is there a reset or fuse? I dont have my manual. Or is it trashed?? Thanks for any help.
No announcement yet.
Did I fry my wet/dry vac
