This is a propriatary part. You will need to get a new filter cover for the vac from an AERUS Electrolux dealer or repair shop. The vac can run in this condition and your filter will be fine.

I took the filter assembly apart, now I can't get it back together. There's a silver medal ring, a big cotton back, an inner plastic seal and an outer plastic seal. Somehow, they all fit back together....


The cotton bag wraps around the hepa filter - the blue plastic part will not be visible once the bag is in place. The silver ring sits inside the cotton bag to hold the sides of the bag against the sides of the vacuum top-half. DON'T pull the plastic inner seal and outer seal apart. They snap together and snap onto the lip of the vacuum top-half. It's a bit of a struggle snapping the seal back onto the lip.

I want to know easy way to change my filter


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.

I'm not really a technician, but I used to sell Filter Queens and was taught how to maintain them, and have tackled "fixing" some problems. I am a 71 year old great-grandmother of 8, but have good health...


i just took my old majestic apart to fix the motor
on mine, when you open the top of the machine where the exit hook up is
you take out those three screws
the top case comes off and you can get to those three screws and alot more of the motor as well

Good Luck !

How do i clean out the air filter on a E2 rainbow


You have to carefully remove the clear lenses that hold the labels in place on either side of the canister to get at the inner filter. I used two very small (about 1/8 in wide) screwdrivers at the bottom of each lens about 1 1/2 inches in from either side to pop it out. The lenses have 2 prongs on each side of the clip that extend into the vacuum about 1/2 inch, so be careful not to break them off when removing the lens.

Kirby won't turn on only when trying to use power nozzle


Make sure that your power nozzle has a little metal prong that plugs into the little rectangular hole in the fan case. If the prong is broken, you'll need a new nozzle. If the prong is intact, you'll need a new switch. Here is a link to help with the repair and help you locate the switch.

How do I remove the washable filter to clean it on my Dyson bagless vacuum?


As you are looking down at the base of the machine (viewing from the front) you will notice a yellow button on the right side just inside of the the wheel area. push up the button to release the casing that holds the hepa filter and the spongy filter. You can see a diagram on your machine which shows this process. After you take the casing from the machine, the round housing which houses the 2 filters will come out of this casing as you pull it off. You can grab the spongy filter and pull it our of the casing. Rinse both filters as shown in diagrams on the side of the casing. Do not use soapy water, just warm water and squeeze out the spongy filter after each new soaking. Let the filters dry for 12 hours and then replace in your unit and enjoy the refurbished air movement. It does suggest that you clean these filters every 6 months.

Henry hoover - occasionally it won't **** and I can usually sort it out. This time it just won't **** anything up.


Hi, Have you checked the hose for blockages and also the only main problem with these are you know when you take the top off then their is that big round filter that sits on the lip that holds the two parts together, Check this is in the correct way and that the seal is not damged check also the clips holding the top and bottom together are secure.
But blow down hose make sure not blocked then check the filter this might even need banging to remove dust in case its built up to much and not allowing the air to get through it ok
Let me know how you get on ok

Hep! My 3 month old Hoover Mach 5 doesn't pick up!


What is happening is the secondary filters, HEPA and the canister all need to be cleaned. This is vital. What the vacuum repair people are keeping from you is that tidbit of wisdom. This particular vacuum is picky about airflow. Pull the canister, and on the body of the vacuum on top of where the canister sits are the secondary filters. There should be a sticker explaining how to remove them. Clean them throuougly, mine was filthy. Make sure you clean the canister by unlocking it and cleaning out the micro holes and the cone end. Mine was completely plugged. Now brush the dirty side of the HEPA filter with the combo tool. Let the secondary filters dry completely (you can blow dry them on cold) Re-install everything, and the vacuum will run like brand new. I vacuumed the whole house after I completed this maintainence and it works like a champ. Don't return this vac until you clean it completely.
