My unit is blowing air from both the exhaust outlet and the top handle unit on one side. Suction is low. Filter clean but have discovered a broken seal around the top of the unit where it attaches to the bucket. Is this the cause?

Have a look on the bunnings website or google it.
It would have taken more effort to ask the question on here.

The on/off rocker switch is not working. If i turn the unit upside down the rocker switch falls off - so it is not seated on the switch. I tried pushing hard but I am concerned i might break something if I continue with that. Is there a simple answer to this problem. The unit is less than 6 months old.

I would take the piece of junk back to Bunning for either a refund, replacement or a completely different machine.
They are a rubbish machine and not very well designed espresso for a workshop vac

I have one of these vacuums & I am using it to remove water from a flooded garage which it does well but the downside is the constant need to carry the canister outside (which only holds 13L & NOT 20L of water) to empty it. Is it possible to get a fitting that could attach to the drain plug on the bottom of the canister so I could then put a long hose on it to drain outside? Hopefully I could then vacuum water continuously with no need to empty the canister effectively using it as a vacuum water pump.

Ours is about 12 months old and caught on fire, melting its innards. Why would that be?

Without knowing any of the circumstances it is impossible to say. However it will rely on air flowing through the motor to dissipate heat built up during operation and if that airflow is blocked I could see how that could cause the motor to burn out, especially if left for a prolonged period of time. Just think how your normal vacuum cleaner gets warm when in normal use. Mind you, I would have hoped Ryobi would include an overheat cutout for safety. Stupid question but I have to ask: I presume you weren't using it to suck up petrol or other flammable substance?

No, just sawdust. The bag was very full apparently.

What is the chain that hangs down dragging on the ground?

I believe that in certain applications this vacuum is permanently installed in a workshop/workstation and switched on remotely with plumbing etc and the chain is to prevent it walking away over time.

Very demanding of a free service, with answers supplied by readers, not a company! I had to replace my power switch. Wasn't difficult, I paid $4.50 at Altronics & made it fit with little trouble. It's a cheap unit though, so people shouldn't expect to get the same qualities as a more expensive one. It performs remarkably well given the low price.

I have a Ryobi wet and dray cleaner. It has been excellent. However, at the moment it is blowing fine dust out the exhaust outlet and not picking up as well as it has been. I have cleaned the filter. Any clues?

how do you attach the bag

Bertie73

Hi Bob,If by Bag you mean the filter surrounding the motor housing, I had to unscrew the lid or covering plate on the base of the housing, the bag or filter could be worked off. Moving tin equal stages away from the frame. Because it has a slight tape at the top, it gets progressively easier. I washed and dried the filter and replaced after comparing both ends to ensure it was going back on in the correct way(fat end first). The tail end I ensured was clamped by the screw on base. Hope this helps ...cheers Bertie

a option also in these kinds of vacuums' is to line the bucket with a bin liner makes cleaning up easy.
