I've had this vac for a couple of years and last time I used it, it just stopped working right in the middle of the job. I emptied the tank and changed the filter, looked under the hood and extracted some fluff. Still not working. Any ideas?

Maybe try blowing all debris out and retry. Was there a burning smell at all? Could be bad motor,loose connection, bad switch etc. Hard to diagnose issue over computer. Might want to contact cutomer service. Cheers

The wheels won’t seem to click in. Do I not just turn it upside down and push down on the wheels until they click? Only one would click down and it’s loose.

Yes. They are supposed to click in, mine were very hard to get in and had to tap in with a hammer CAREFULLY without damaging wheel or holder. They were tight then. Not ideal.

To change over to wet vacuum what do I need to do

Simply open the lid and remove any paper filter. i.e. bag or RIDGID type. If you have a foam filter, you can leave it however, I chose to remove it also.

I am petite with a back injury and cannot pick up over 10 pounds. I am in need of a new shop vac that I do not have to lift the motor off the top. Only I do not see the weight of this 12 gal. product. How much does it weigh? And do you sell a 6 gal?

Answers

The Ridgid shop vac weights about 23 Lbs. Just the motor head weights about 12 Lbs. I do not know of a shop vac with a motor on the bottom. One if the home style canister vac would have a removable bag that may work for you. We have a Kenmore that is easy to empty, that my wife uses. Dave

What is the net weight of this model?

I am experiencing the same issue. I was using it on carpet and thought it was just static electricity. I have had my vacuum for over a year and this is the first time I noticed it.

Where can I find the static lift ratings on Ridgid shop vacs?

It’s rare but annoying when the nozzle comes adrift during vacuuming and doubly so if the nozzle is deep under a car seat at the time so this range of locking accessories for Ridgid’s popular 2 ½ inch wet and dry shop vac’s is very useful to have. The locking mechanism itself is simple but strong and effective. Made of high quality plastic the accessory attachments fit the existing range of Ridgid shop vac’s without the need for any modification of the original vacuum tubes and extensions. In fact, there is no reason why these locking accessories will not fit any brand of 2 ½ inch vacuums.

I love Ridgid products, particularly their Wet Dry Vac. This Car Nozzle is fantastic for getting into places in my vehicle that are particularly hard to reach, i.e. under the seats, floorboards, center console, even the floor mats. The locking feature is also fantastic. While I primarily use this attachment in maintaining my vehicle, it also has many great uses in other areas, i.e. cleaning bed platform, in-between seat cushions, window sills, just so many uses. I highly recommend this attachment for your Ridgid Wet Dry Vac. The results are fantastic.

Fits good and made of thick material. I expect it to last as long as the original that came with the shop vac.

Extremely powerful
I’ve purchased RIGID products for a number of years for my heavy duty purposes. My last purchase was one of the smaller shop vacs that was all plastic. The filter housing had been modified so filters pop on and off which isn’t what I’m used to so I broke it by accident. I didn’t like that machine anyway...it was very noisy and didn’t have the power I expected. I replaced it with this much more powerful, heavy duty shop vac that is actually much quieter than the old one. I couldn’t be more happy with my purchase and the car cleaning tool that is most useful for truck mats and such.

Well designed
I purchased this vacuum a few weeks ago and the design and performance is more than I expected. The organization of the tools and hose makes it easy to transport and store and the locking feature saves time and frustration when pulling the vacuum around. There is no chance of inadvertently disconnecting the hose with this well thought out system. The performance has been exceptional. I have used the removable blower to clean my patio and driveway with impressive and quiet power. I have also used the vacuum to clean up maple tree seeds after I blew them to the perimeter of my driveway. Quick and efficient.
by AJMalibu
Great Product!
Excellent vacuum with lots of power! Only thing I would like to see improve is better adaptors for the hose. Overall I would buy another one and totally recommend it!
by Fountain Tire
Great vacuum
Very happy with the vacuum. Love that the various attachments all attach to the vacuum when not in use. The clipping system keeps attachments securely connected - a problem with my last vac. Plenty of power.
