Question about Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

How does the filter fit?

Which way does a filter go into a filter queen? My friend just got an old one. I don't know if the paper cone is to go over or under the plastic one. I think it is to go over it. Am I right? Is there any other filter besides the paper one? I know nothing about these machines as I use a broom and it has no plug in on it. Thank you.

Re: how does the filter fit?

You put the cone filter on the bucket then put the top motor unit on and lock in place. There are filters internally in the top motor section. You would have to disasmble the top unit to replace them.

Red light is on my filter queen

The red light on the filter Queen is on to tell you to empty the canister and change the filter. It is a heat sensor that makes it come on and if it is full it gets hot. Also when you take the motor piece off of the bucket under the nylon cone shaped guard that protects the motor there is a secondary filter in there that needs to be changed from time to time and they are supplied with the cones inside the package of rep[lacement cones there should be a spare or maybe two. It is a round thin filter about 3.5 inches across and it just fits in very easily and there is a plastic ring that holds it in place. So pop out the ring and remove the old one and then replace it with the new one put the ring in to hold just snaps into place.replace the nylon guard and put in a new filter cone. Put the machine back together and away you go the light should turn off and you are good to go. Thanks for your time and please try to remember to click on the yes box if this was any help to you at all.

I have a Vacu Queen V3000 and it stopped working in the middle of a job. I verified that I have power at the outlet that it plugs into and then checked motor resistance from the plug and I got about 600...

As a quick test Plug in the vac again and turn on the switch, then try your power head. If the head works you have a motor problem, if the head doesn't you likely have a cord problem.
You seem to be saying it failed while running??? which generally indicates your switch is the suspect.
Check the motor for a worn or sticking carbon brush.
Motor is access by removing the chrome lid and 3 screws under the handle., then removing the paper cone and unscrewing the center screw a t he bottom of the plastic.cone cage...

I have two older Filter Queen (brown vacuum cleaners). Besides unclogging the hose area and making sure it is not filled with dirt, what else would cause the machine to run hot and have a high pitched...

High pitched sound is often caused by air leaks in air ducts. This will also cause hoover loosing sucking power and slightly overheating.

If the hoover is overheating a lot, then noise can also come from the motor. In that case the part must be rplaced.

Try replacing the cone filter, the secondary filter, and the insulation at the top of the machine.
If that does not fix the problem, then the hoover must be taken apart to clean or repair the air duct.

I was given a filter queen majestic limited edition but have no manual, can you help

This is a very straight forward good quality vac, with excellent filtration.
The cannister has two large clamps to release the motor from the dust chamber. Depending onb the age you may have an LED which comes on when it is time to empty the vac. The cleanest way to empty is to leave the paper cone over the dirt and carefully tip all into a garbage bag sitting on the floor.
You should replace the paper cone with a genuine fresh one each time you empty the container. In addition there is a paper disc inside the motor housing which you will access by removing the flat screw at the bottom of the plastic grille cone.

Majestic filter queen light on how to repair

If the light is on you either have a clog some were in the system or the motor is shot. Does it come on? If so check the hose/wand/and nozzle for obstructions then empty the basin and put a fresh secondary (under the plastic cone) filter, and a new cone filter in machine. This should solve the problem.

The high pitched noise could be because the vacuum is loosing airflow. does the red light come on on the top? if it does ot emptythe vacuum, replace the cone filter, the secondary filter, and the batting in the top of the machine. also hook the hose to the top of the vacuum to make sure there are no clogs in the hose.

How to empty?
How to empty?
Posted by jchale55 on Jun 16, 2008
I inherited this Filter Queen "Cheetah" (but it isn't black ... chrome) and don't know how to empty the thing.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Filter Queen uses a cone filter and there are 2 or 3 clamps to release to remove the cone and then you dump the dirt sitting in the bottom of the canister and then replace the new cone filter and repeat the process. If you have further question feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
