The only filter you can clean is in the compartment beside the dust bin, push in on the release catch to pull out the filter holder. This filter should be replaced occasionally. There is an exhaust filter under the cover the dust bin sits on. This filter should also be replaced occasionally.
Hello! Sounds like your vacuum may be overheating. This is usually caused by either a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned. Please try the steps below to get your vacuum back up and running.
1. Remove the hose from both ends by pressing the release buttons.
2. Use a broom stick or something similar to gently loosen and remove any clogs from the hose.
3. Remove the nozzle from the cleaner by pressing the release button and pulling the nozzle from the body.
4. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen up and remove any clogs from the nozzle or the lower tube.
5. Remove the dirt cup. Lift open the lid to the dirt cup.
6. Remove the filter from dirt cup. Remove the filter frame from dirt cup. Hold filter under running water to rinse. Allow 24 hours to air dry before replacing.
7. Check the exhaust filter by twisting off the filter cover.
8. If dirty, the exhaust filter can be washed as well. Hold filter under running water to rinse. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
This should stop the vacuum from overheating. If not please reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil. Thanks!
If you're looking for the exhaust filter, it is on the top of the machine under the crevice tool and dusting brush.
If you look at the rear of the machine you will see a tab on the attachment holder.
Remove the attachments on the unit
Push tab on rear of vacuum on the attachment compartment
Lift cover and your exhaust filter should be exposed and should just pop right off for replacement.
There are two possible causes for this issue. The most likely is that your exhaust filter is blocked and so the air literally cant get out. You need to replace the exhaust Hepa Filter every six months anyway so get a new one and see if that fixes the problem. If it still is popping off after this it means the tiny lugs on the filter cover are damaged so you will need to get a new one of those.
Pull the blower out from the lid. flip it over and your should see 3 or 4 screws that hold the filter cover on. remove those screws, remove the filter cover, then remove the filter. It is a dirty job. Most often the filter can be beaten clean. Some are washable. Clean or replace then reinstall. Good luck!
There are only two. One on top and the paper cone filter that covers the entire base of the top. There are three paper tabs on the large paper cone filter. You can either put the filter directly on the bucket and then bend the tabs over the outer edges of the bucket to hold it in place and then sit the top down ( that's how I do it). Or you can put the filter on the plastic cone shaped frame on the bottom side of the top of the machine. It's actually easier if you flip it upside down and then flip the bucket base over onto it. The only other filter is on the very top of the machine. Unscrew the top lid which is actually the cover for your exhaust hose inlet. This filter is indexed with a couple of screws that don't have to be removed. Spin the metal cover and remove filter. There is actually a large round filter ( hoop shaped on the top of the machine...I can't remember how I remove it, but truthfully it has little air restraining capacity so unless you have an odor issue with your Majestic what you can do is blow it out using the hose connected to the top of the machines exhaust blower outlet. Don't ever remove that filter, just literally leave it where it's at and put on your crevice tool and aim it through the slots around the top of of the machine.
You may need a new filter bag part #110346. They can cause suction problems at the unit. Either that are there is a problem with the motor, does it sound alright when running? If not, take it to a beam repair shop, with proof of purchase, the motor would be under warranty for the part only, not labor. The filter bag is not covered by warranty.
