How to get casters on?

Anyone else have trouble getting the casters in? Any hint on how to do it? I know they go into the attachment piece. But I can’t get them to snap. Thanks in advance!
Asked by: ACustomer
A tap with a rubber hammer will help snap the into place.

What is the height of the unit with the wheels removed? I am trying to replace a 16gal vacuum that is mounted in a cart, so I don't need the wheels, but it can only be 23" tall in order to fit into the cart.

Why is the blower getting hot?

Using the shop vac to clean up water from carpet, less than an inch of water. Tried with and without the filter and the top of the unit, where the blower is, is getting very warm after only a few minutes of operation.
Asked by: Paogreat
Hello Paogreat! Thanks for your inquiry. It's normal that the motor will get warm, but not to the extent that it's extremely hot that you can't place your hand on it specially with burning smell. You may return the vac to the store for an exchange within 90 days. Be sure to have the receipt with you. If you have further questions or concerns, 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.

When using water, should the filter be removed from the dust pump or not

Asked by: serhiy
Hello serhiy! Thank you for your question. For picking up large amounts of water, the pleated paper filter can be removed. When picking up small amounts of liquid the paper filter may be left in place. When the filter becomes saturated, misting may occur at the blower port. To further protect the motor of your vac, you can use a wet filter (part number: VF7000). If you have additional 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 or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

Does the Rigid wet/dry vac pump accessory (pumps 10 gallons/minute out of the wet vac so that you don?t have to manually dump the water) fit on this 16 gallon unit?

Asked by: Rigid
I called customer service and she said you have to manually lift the unit to dump it and there are no other units that you can reverse it and have the hose put in so that you can dump without lifting the unit :(
