You need to replace your silencing filter on the inside. I recommend calling Health Mor at 800-344-1840 and having their Tech. walk you through replacing that filter. It should have been replaced at about 2 years. It catches the carbon off the motor, but if dust is getting through it can clog it and cause your motor to overheat.

Good luck,

    if its in the motor i think you would hear an unusual noise. unless bearings are bad and running slower?

    dont think dust in motor is possible since it would have to go through all those filters still think you have a clogged suction.

Will run for a few minutes, then red light comes on canister an unit shuts off.


That's the thermal cut off circuit. If the motor gets to hot it trips and shuts it off. When it cools down it will turn on again but it is generally an indicator of one of the following; the cone filter needs changed or the inner filter ring that sits above the motor inside the unit is shot. One is an easy change the other requires dis-assembly, better carried out by a vac tech if you aren't comfortable taking it apart. In the meantime remove the cap out of the top of the vacuum, that will let it exhaust heat better but I strongly recommend getting that filter ring changed.

Filter queen vacuum head has no power


More information needed. When you turn on the vacuum do you hear the motor running? Is the problem that there is no suction at the head? Is there suction at the canister when the hose is removed? I would first check to make sure that there is no obstruction in the hose. Have you checked the filters to see if they are clean?

Put a broomstick or such down the hose, something may be stuck. Look inside with the bag out, is there a screen before the motor?

Hi, Did you change both the cone and the filter on the top lid? If so, ther may be a leak in the machine breaking the air tight vacuum. When you put it together make sure its in properly and tight. Let me know if this does not help, I will look at something else. Chris

How often is it necessary to change the filter one on a Filter Queen Majestic?


The best thing to do to both, keep your Majestic suction and air flow strongest, and keep from pulling dirt & dust from being pulled past the filters which can cause damage to the motor, and charcoal filter, replace the filter once a month. If you use it longer than that it will both loose suction and will cause your Medipure or Enviropure "charcoal" filters to wear out prematurely. Mark the change date right on the filter or on your calendar to help keep track.

The red light by the on and off switch turned on . what does that mean


usually it indicates a low suction issue. Wether the hose is clogged, or either one or all 4 filters need to be changed. Usually the cone and the circular filter above the plastic cone should be replaced.
Good luck,
Mark

My vacuum made a funny noise, the red light was on and so I turned it off. There are small sparks now when turned on


Sorry. It sounds like the suction motor is bad. The best thing to do is take it to a reputable vac shop.

How to change upper filters?


Open the vac as though to change the cone and remove the plastic inner cone with the slotted screw at the bottom.. Underneath you will find a 5" disk , likely coated with fine dust.
That is the one which needs to be changed. Around that disc will be three more screws holding the upper housing onto the vac. These ones are accessible from inside, if changing the motor.
Below the handle of the vac there is a serial number ring and three screws in an offset triangle. If you remove these and the rubber cover for the toe switch, the vac housing will come off. This will reveal the `foam or cotton ``muffler``. You can replace it or wash and dry it if foam. It acts as a muffler more than a a filter....

Suction problem


first thing you need to do is replace the disc filter benieth the conical shaped shroud. also there is batting in the upper part of the vacuum tat should be replaced once every 4 years as well as it gets clogged with carbonfrom the motor. this increases the air flow through the vacuum keeping the motor cool and increasing your suction as well. the disc filter benieth the conical shroud should be replaced every 6 months under normal use and every 3 months under really dusty situations, and if vacuuming up fine talk powder every month. also check for a clog in the hose by hooking the hose up to the blower port on the top of the vacuum.
