Question about Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum
I have a 27 year old Filterqueen that runs for a few minutes and cuts out. Once it cools down, it starts up again. I've checked the brushes, which seem ok. It's not the main switch because the power nozzle keeps working even when the main suction motor quits. Is there an overheating switch somewhere?
You should check the disc filter that is located under the paper cone support. The support is secured with a single screw in the middle at the bottom. This filter is commonly overlooked and when it gets dirty will restrict airflow and cause the motor to overheat. Most motors have a Hi-Limit switch incorporated into the motor to protect against overheating. You should also check the top filter (which is probably foam) and replace if it is clogged.
