Hi all, I know that this was already posted but still I just wana make sure if it's ok to do this. My shop vac stopped working a few weeks ago and I saw this little thing that I know it's a fuse. As you can see in the pic it has melted so I know that I can't get one at Shop Vac they will say that I need a new motor. So looking at this I wondered why is it there? I think it's more of a money thing, when it breaks you get e new motor or vac pretty simple. If I need this part then why? There's a little fan at the top of the motor to keep it cool so I don't see why I would need a fuse there. I know someone here did bypass it on his Craftsman shop vac but mine is just about 3-5 years old. So any help with this is welcomed!!!
