Question about Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

Open Question

Too much suction.

Brand new vaccum. We demonstrated it and I could easily move it around with one hand. She later swapped out the hose because of a loose part, we put in our new filter and it has so much suction, it takes two hands to push and pull it over the carpet. What are we doing wrong?

SOURCE: Filter Queen, carpet attachment problem???

Open it up and see if the dirt inlet is clogged. It would be by the brush roll. But you must have a clog.

It sounds as if you have a clog inside the "Power Nozzel". They mention that there are "no user serviceable parts within the Majestic® Power Nozzle" My advice would be to see if you can see a clog with in reachable distance and try to remove the clog. One way to check for a clog which may work for you is to remove the attachment and shine a flashlight on one of of the attachment and look through the other side and see if you see light, if no light, most likely a clog. Past that you might void the warrenty if you try and open it up the Power Nozzel itself. You may want to ask a Phone service rep about clog removal.

SOURCE: On a filter queen 360

I am having the same problem On a filter queen 360 vaccum the electrical connection from the hose to the wand was loose and over time the electrical arcing burned up the female conector piece. This sounds to me like a manufacturing problem. The arcing is a fire hazard. Why aren't these problems being fixed for free. When will the recall come out?

Upon turning on vaccum it starts ok, but a second later it spits out some dust dirt out and does not vaccum. We hear like a poof suction when this happens. Cleaned all the tubes around it, but thinking...


The poof suction sound you hear is most likely the suction release valve opening up because there is a clog or restriction somewhere. If you don't feel qualified it is usually a better idea to take it to a qualified repair facility.

No suction when vaccuming floor


There could be a few things that would cause your Dyson to have no suction. I will give you detailed step by step instructions along with pictures on how you can diagnose this.

Possible Problem #1. The first problem is extremely common. In fact, we probably see between 2-3 of these problems every week. It mostly happens after people take the bottom plate off the vacuum in order to clean the roller brush. What happens is when they reinstall the bottom plate, they put it on on incorrectly. It's actually very easy to do. When the bottom plate (soleplate) is installed wrong, there will be a gap between the bottom plate, and the agitator housing, or the purple tray the roller brush sits in. This will cause the soleplate to be a few inches higher off the ground then it should be, preventing the brushes from even hitting the carpet. This makes it seem to the user that vacuum has lost suction power because without the brushes hitting the carpet, the machine will not pick up very well on floors, but when they use the attachment hose there's plenty of suction power.

Here's a picture of the WRONG way to install the bottom plate. Notice the gap in between the two housings:

Here's another picture, that is the RIGHT way to install the soleplate:


8b953d0.jpg
I would say probably 6 times out of 10 this is the problem with the customers machine. If you checked the soleplate and it is installed correctly, move on to the second possible problem.

Possible Problem # 2. Turn the vacuum cleaner upside down so the brush roller is facing upwards. I found the easiest way to work on it is to put it on a counter top or work bench. On the left hand side behind the roller brush you should see a flexible transparent hose that goes from the motor to the agitator housing. This hose actually has a lot of strain on it when the vacuum cleaner is in the reclined position. When the first few series of Dyson DC07 models came out, they didn't make this hose long enough, so when the vacuum was in the reclined position, it would put too much stress on the hose, and cause the hose to actually crack, usually right where the end of the hose that goes into the agitator housing. Examine your hose and see if you have any visible cracks in this hose. If you need to you may just remove the entire hose assembly by pulling on it. It will easily come right out of the machine so you can inspect it better. Here's a picture of where the hose usually cracks:


54cb5e5.jpg
This would also explain why the vacuum works fine when using the attachments, but not on the floors. The attachment hose uses a different suction channel, and when the machine is in the upright position, no suction goes through this hose. If you do find a crack in this hose, the this hose needs to be replaced. Here's a direct link to that hose on our GoVacuum website.

Possible Problem #3. I would suspect that this may not be the problem, but if neither of the solutions above worked, then try this one. Dyson's in general are prone to clogging. There are a few clog ports throughout the vacuum cleaner that were added there due to Dyson prototypes becoming clogged at these points. Here are pictures of how and where to check for these clogs. Simply remove the suction port covers at both of these locations:

Model UH60010, Series X12.0, Mfg code K09A. While attempting to use the hose and the extensions to clean shelves, my wife reported no suction. I removed the brush roller and the plastic piece just below...


There are six different reasons a vacuum can lose suction, a plugged vacuum hose, bad motor, full vacuum bag, or cracked or damage hoses. Purchasing a vacuum cleaner can be a costly expense while repairing the suction on the unit can be virtually free. Most suction loss problems on a vacuum can be easily fixed or remedied with common house hold tools and very little technical expertise.
If your vacuum cleaner losses suction, the first and easiest solution is to check the bag. If the vacuum cleaner bag is full suction will be greatly reduced and the unit will become ineffective. A vacuum cleaner works by passing air through the bag fibers leaving dirt and debris behind inside the bag. If the refuse bag becomes full, airflow is restricted, limiting the amount of air passing through the vacuum bag resulting in loss of suction. When replacing the vacuum bag always consult your owners manual to insure that the vacuum bag seals with the vacuum inlet hose. If your vacuum cleaner bag is not tightly sealed to the vacuum inlet hose you will decrease the air flow through the bag resulting in loss of suction.
The second and sometimes most common reason for loss of suction on a vacuum cleaner is a plugged vacuum hose. If the hose becomes plugged, air flow will become restricted. To unplug a vacuum hose detach it from the machine and inspect the inside. If there is a restriction in the hose, remove it with your fingers and replace the hose onto the unit. If the hose is long and the debris is hard to get too, a broom handle or other long object can be passed through the hose to dislodge the debris. Most vacuum cleaners contain more that one suction hose, so make sure to check each one by process of elimination. Another area that can become easily plugged on a vacuum cleaner is under the lower base of the unit by the roller brush. Large debris can get caught in this area and restrict air flow to the hose.
If your vacuum refuse bag is not full and the suction hoses are not plugged the next thing to check is the condition of the hoses. Many hoses are made from plastic which can easily tear or crack. If your vacuum cleaner shows signs of wear or are cracked they need to be replaced. Even the smallest hole in a vacuum hose can leak enough air to greatly diminish the suction potential of your unit. Replace your vacuum cleaner parts with OEM parts from the original manufacturer to ensure the tightest fit.
Most vacuum cleaners contain filters. Filters are used as a last line of defense to remove dust and smaller debris particles before the air is recycled back into the environment. If vacuum cleaner filters become dirty or plugged they also can decrease the amount of air traveling through the unit. Some filters can be easily rinsed with water whereas others need to be replaced. It is important to check your owners manual before rinsing a vacuum filter.
The last and probably least common problem for a vacuum cleaner to loose suction is a bad or failing vacuum motor. Over time vacuum motors lose power due to worn carbon brushes or long term damage. A vacuum cleaners worst enemy is moisture. If water or moisture is sucked into the vacuum motor it will greatly diminish the amount of suction the unit has. Replacing a vac motor can be a costly and time consuming ordeal. In some cases, replacing a vacuum motor can outweigh the cost of buying a new vacuum. Vacuum suction is measured in water lift which can easily be measured by using a water lift gauge. If the water lift measured in inches, falls below half the original water lift specifications for the unit, it is time to replace your motor. Most vacuum cleaner repair shops carry this type of equipment and can easily tell you if it is time for a new vac motor.

I bought it in may , I can honestly say , it is THE worst vaccum


There are several filters on bag-less vacuums that need to be cleaned. Dig out your owners manual or open the one below. See section 3 for filters and maintenance. If you are vacuuming a house bigger than about 1500 square feet, you should be cleaning the filters every other use. Personally, after using a bagless for a couple of months, I went back to my bagged vacuum.

Brush doesn't spin and there is no suction there either, the brushes move freely when manipulated manually


Check for clog in the hose or what ever connects the nozzel to the collection device. I pick up vaccum cleaners all summer, most new, all clogged, all from the trash.

If possible, take the machine outside, open the collection device, run the motor. Is there suction you can detect anywhere?

Dyson all floor vaccum no suction when hand held wand is turned on... doubled checked for cracks in hose -- none took house off unit to check for blockage --- none.. suction works fine when using as normal...


You need to replace the belt that drives the brush on the underneath side of the vacuum. To do this, you need to flip the vacuum over and remove cover plate. There you will find the broken, or stretched out belt. Remove the brush and place the new belt on the chrome axle. Then put the brush on, rapping the new belt around the brush as you put the brush back in place.

No suction


Replace your belt. Remove the baseplate, remove the brushroll, place a new belt around the motor pulley, then around the pulley on the brushroll, and pull the brushroll back into place in the nozzle. Spin it by hand to make sure it spins, (otherwise you'll break the belt again,) and then replace the baseplate. Party.

How do I unclog a bissell vaccum? I'm not just talking about unclogging the hose, I need to unclog the complete vacuum cleaner. HELP!!!


Well firstly, whats the model number and do you have the user manual to hand?

If the main hose has been unblocked, then it could be the main dirt channel which is blocked just after the moving roller brush panel. A long pipe cleaner or wire brush can remove this blockage easily rather than taking everything apart.

My electrolux vac does not **** up dust despite anew container and no obvious clogs


TAKE OFF THE HOSE AND PUT YOUR HAND OVER THE OPENING. IF THE SUCTION IS STRONG YOU NEED A NEW HOSE. I JUST REPLACED THE HOSE ON MY 28 YR. OLD OLYMPIA ONE AND THE SUCTION IS AS IF IT WERE BRAND NEW.
