Recall on Wet/Dry Vacuums Sold Exclusively at Home Depot

Having a wet/dry vacuum is a big plus for a lot of people. They are usually more powerful than a regular vacuum, so you can clean up a wider range of messes, plus you can clean up anytime water or any other liquid causes a mess in your house. In fact, when we got ours, I went a little crazy cleaning out my car, the basement, the back porch, but I digress.

If you purchased a RIDGID wet/dry vac from any Home Depot store or online at between March 2018 through July 2018, they are being recalled due to a shock hazard. The RIDGID NXT HD06000(6 gallons) and HD09000(9 gallons) have an on/off switch that can become dislodged, exposing energized wiring that could pose a shock hazard to the user.

According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Emerson Tool Company, which manufactures RIDGID wet/dry vacuums is asking consumers to stop using these immediately an contact them for a free replacement powerhead assembly.

These vacuums are orange and black in color with four swivel casters along with a handle, hose, and accessories. You can find the model number on the silver product label on the back of the powerhead assembly of the vacuum.
