How do I change the filter??

Asked by iamron November 19, 2020
2
Answers

Hello iamron, Thanks for asking. To remove the filter, Hold the filter tabs of the Qwik Lock™ filter in each hand.. With one thumb on the Qwik Lock™ stud, which protrudes through the integrated filter plate, lift up on the filter tabs while pushing down on the stud. This action will cause the filter to release from the filter cage. Slide filter off cage. To install it back, Carefully slide the Qwik Lock™ filter over the filter cage and press down on the outside edge of the filter until the rubber gasket on the bottom of the filter seats securely around the base of the filter cage and against the lid. Align the small center hole in the top of the filter over the Qwik Lock™ stud on the filter cage. Press firmly on top of the filter near the stud to allow the filter to snap over the ball on the end of the stud. You may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you.

Hhaving problems with caster/caster foot assembly. Directions difficult to follow.

Asked by Cathy79 November 18, 2020
2
Answers

Hello Cathy79, Thank you for your feedback and we're sorry for the inconvenience. On the bottom of the caster foot there are two holes, one in the nipple or stem that slides in the vac and the other in the near center of the foot. The center hole (looks like a spider web) is the hole that the wheels go into. We suggest that you try to assemble the caster and foot first before attaching the foot to the bottom of the drum so that you can apply more pressure by pressing it against the floor as you go. If the caster foot is pre-installed to the bottom of the drum, you can remove it first by stepping on it while lifting the drum up. Once removed, insert the metal stem of the caster into the caster foot, try to rotate and push it in at the same time with your whole body weight into it. When you hear a clicking sound, it is the sign that the wheel is already locked in place. You may also use a rubber mallet to make sure you attached it thoroughly. If you have further questions or concerns, you may call Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or email us at info@ridgidvacs.com Thank you, RIDGID Customer Support

How do you know when the vacuum bag #VF3502

Asked by Am I full October 22, 2020
1
Answer

Hello RIDIGD Customer, Thanks for your inquiry! There are many ways a user can detect if a filter dust bag is already full. You can do visual inspection. Turn off the vacuum, lift the power head and check the content pf the bag. A reduced suction is also an indication that the bag is full. When this happens, we suggest you check the filter bag or replace it. Lastly, when the vacuum starts to develop a higher than normal pitch sound, it could also be another sign. If you need further guidance or information about this, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you.

why does my VAC12000 not have strong suction? trying to vacuum up water and it will not do the job

Asked by GiGi Gulley October 18, 2020
1
Answer

Hello GiGi Gulley, We’re sorry to learn your issue with the vac. It usually occurs if you’re picking up large volume of water with the filter installed. As stated in the owner’s manual, you can use the pleated paper filter for small amounts of liquid pickup. For large amounts, the filter must be removed to avoid suction loss and water misting from the exhaust port. If you have further questions or concerns, you may call Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or email us at info@ridgidvacs.com Thank you, RIDGID Customer Support

For the Ridgid WD16400 Wet/Dry Vac, what is the correct size/diameter of adapter to purchase for connecting to benchtop tools such as a miter saw, which may have a nozzle that is 1.5" ID? Thank you!

Answers

I'm sorry that I don't know the answer, but the Ridgid home office should be able to answer that question for you, I don't know whether you are having the same experience as I am, but my vac leaks air and dust back into the space around it when in use. This is very unacceptable when using it inside a building where one is trying to clean up, not mess up.

RIDGID Vacuum Bag 100% Failure
I am working on a large patio tile project that involves grinding of old thinset. I used a Rigid vaccum with Rigid brand vacuum bags and filter, Duststopper separator from Home Depot. 100% bag failure at the seams every time within 10 minutes. See pictures attached. These are way too expensive to replace every 10 minutes not including the inconvenience of having to clean up the filter the bags are supposed to protect. I went through 8 bags and every bag failed same place within approximately the same time frame. I would not recommend these bags to anyone with a project requiring vacuum and containment of dust.

(What's this)
Good value with 2 bags and 1 pleated filter. When it's time to change your filter picking this up is a good deal. Creates 2 stage filtration in the Rigid wet/dry vac. Fits my Rigid bag fine. Didn't pull out after vacuuming. Dust isn't good to breath in and even if you use a good pleated filter you're going to be exposed to dust as emptying the canister releases a lot of dust. You'll still have to deal with dust when taking out a full bag but the inside of the vac will be cleaner when you need to handle it later. If you're using more expensive filters like the HEPA filter these bags will save even more money by preserving the pleated filter more. The new style of pleated filter slips on easily and stays secure without any tools. Bag goes on easily too, just need to make sure rubber slips in between the two raised portions. I found it helps to poke the perforations with my finger first so I don't have to force it on using the cardboard. Highly recommend using the bag indoors along with a filter. Just remember to remove and empty the canister before picking up wet stuff.

Great deal on a convenient combo pack of filter and two dust bags that will fit most units between 12-16 gal. We've had a 16-gal Ridgid wet vac for a number of years now, and I'm a big fan of the dust bags. Not only do they make emptying the unit so much easier, but they really do cut down on the amount of plaster or concrete dust that gets blown around during cleanup. (Not HEPA level by any means, but you won't see much dust hanging in the air.) The filter, too, is great, easily removed and reinstalled, and you can get some extra life out of it by taking it outside and banging off some of the really thick dust. Overall, just a great deal on a very convenient package. Highly recommended.

I rigid vacuum is likely the best unit made. We have several of these and they have held up like no other. I have used them for cutting grout out for a 900 sq foot kitchen multiple times. The vacuum's work so well and they run even when full. Keep a good filter on and it will run forever. They did not overheat even when they were packed with grout dust. I suggest getting at least one. Get a large one for bigger jobs and get a smaller one for every day type work.

These bags and filter are a must have if you’re doing a cleanup project indoors and want to make a quick easy cleanup. The bags are simple to install, you just snugly slide the cardboard flange over your vacuums inlet tub and basically set the bag inside the canister in the shape of a horseshoe. The filter simply slides over the air outlet that goes to the motor and your ready to use. The bags are very strong and hold a lot of dust and debris. The filter is very strong and high quality.

I took a chance hoping I could use these vacuum bags in my old rigid shop vac. The bag attachment instructions show an internal "nipple with ridges that hold the cardboard flange on the bag. Since my old vac doesn't have this feature the bags won't work on my vacuum. The filter on the other hand will work if I use the old spin nut to hold the filter in place. Check out my photos to help you decide if the kit will work on your vacuum

Hello HeavyKevy, Thanks for writing a review and we're sorry to have learned your disappointment. It's true that most of our old vacuums, including your model based on your photos, don't use filter bags. However, these filter bags are optional. Please ensure that the proper filter is installed, in good condition, and frequently cleaned to avoid performance loss. If you have questions, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I'm giving this 3 stars because the dust bags don't fit my Ridgid 16 gal. shop vac and there was nothing in the product description I was given to indicate how to check compatibility beyond the size of the vacuum. As noted on the packaging and my vac, the filter fits fine and installs easily. You just pull the old filter off of the white button and snap the new on in its place. The issue with the bags is they come with a cardboard collar that needs to be set over ribs on the inner inlet tube of the vac (see photo of bag). My inner tube is cut flush with the inner wall (see photo) and there are no ribs. My vac is about 10 years old. I went back to the store and checked out the current models and their inner tube is definitely different, so validate that your model has the ribs as shown in the diagram before purchasing.

Hello HomeDepotCustomer,

Thank you for writing a review and we're sorry to learn about your disappointment. Looking at the photos you included in your review, it appears that the unit you own has the suction port situated on the lid. Hence, these filter bags will not fit. Note that filter bags are optional for our vacuums. You may return the product to Home Depot within 90 days. For the filter only, the part number is VF4000. For any other questions, please call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you.

I have always been happy with the performance of my Ridgid shop vac but emptying it often produced a mess. When I found these dust bags and filter I had to try them. I vacuum up a lot of sheet-rock dust and fine saw dust so when it came time to empty it I had to take the vac outside and dump it a plastic garbage bag. Now, I get to pull the bag out and simply drop it into a trash can. I believe the bag also acts as an additional filter which means less dust is returned to the air when I vacuum - win-win.

The bags work great for easy cleanup especially when sanding sheetrock or collecting moldy and mildewy debris. An extra layer without needing to buy a more expensive main filter. Be sure your vacuum has the double ring on the inside collar for the bag to be attached. The medium of the filter bag feels unwoven which does a better job at collecting fine particles. The regular main filter is standard. Inside diameter is 4 1/4 inches. Height is 8 5/8. The quicklock means you don't need the twist lock for it to stay in place.

The Dust Bags are an excellent complement to the vacuum. The standard filter works great on its own to capture small particles but combined with the dust bags they make it easy for clean up on particles such as wood sanding dust and sheet rock compound dust. The dust bags attach directly to the inside intake opening. Once filled will debris you simply remove it and dispose it for a dust free cleanup. The standard filter is great since you no longer need the nut to secure it. You simply install it like you would any other filter and the rubber seal on the filter make a snug fit onto the threaded shaft. I highly recommend this filter set for everyone using the Rigid Shop Vacuum.
