Shop flooded/vac went swimming
« on: March 07, 2019, 03:42 PM »
So my CT26 went in the drink for about 12 hrs. I’ve taken it all apart and dried it out. I’ve multimetered back to the motor and I have amps to it but still won’t run. I was wondering if the carbon set may be the issue. Not even sure what it does. I’m assuming the motor is still in good working order only cause I was able to save all my other tools. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also, how many volts (edit: previously wrote amps) should I be reading on the spade terminals that connect to the motor? Thanks a bunch.

You should be reading mains level, at least when set to full suction.
