Filter Queen powerhead diagram

My 7 year old son decided to take the powerhead apart to clean it, but went a bit too far. Now that it is all in pieces, I can't figure out where and how the spring goes in (I believe it is for the pile selector/rollers). Any ideas or diagrams?

Filter queen majestic power head not working, main vacuum working but no power in head when plugged in. any suggestions as to what may be the cause for this to happen.

Is there power at the head, have you checked with a volt meter, most likely if not then the cord to the head is defective.

Powerhead will not rotate

Hi jjill
Sounds like you have a broken belt in the powerhead...replace the broken belt and clean the roller bearing area's of debris while you have it apart.

The powerhead on my Hoover Duros will not keep running. If I push the on/off switch it will come back on sometimes, other times when I push it it turns the whole thing off as its supposed to do.

I just had the same problem with my hoover duros, the vacuum was running fine but the powerhead kept going off. I would make a sweep with it and powerhead would be running and then next sweep powerhead would shut off. I had tried checking connection and belt, etc. I thought it was the powerhead. But then I found the problem. On the duros there are 2 pieces of wands that hook powerhead to hose on canister. They both connected and clicked in fine but I decided to check them separately. I hooked just one piece to hose and powerhead and then turned it on and then I did the other piece. ta-dah! that's what it was only one section of the wand. When I hooked them up separately, one piece the powerhead worked totally fine and vacuumed like normal. When I removed that piece of wand and tried the second piece (actually the bottom section when both are hooked together) the powerhead did not work at all. So I just need to get a new section of wand. Hope this helps!

While using this type of Vaccum Cleaners we should be little bit careful, why because these Cleaners made not use in harsh but to be used carefully,as you said that you have bought this Cleaner 2 years may be it need a service or the capacity of the vaccum cleaner have been lost due to its interal properties.
my choice is to service it once in two or three months.

Filter queen vac 2 years old suction poor cleaned hose canister and filter

Hi, Did you change both the cone and the filter on the top lid? If so, ther may be a leak in the machine breaking the air tight vacuum. When you put it together make sure its in properly and tight. Let me know if this does not help, I will look at something else. Chris

The dirt isn't making its way to the canister . . . what could be the problem? I have taken apart everything I know to take apart to check it.

Generally this is due to a clog in the hose.
Disconnect both ends of the hose, hold one end up and drop a coin into it. Raise the hose so the coin should drop out. If it doesn't there's a clog. It can usually be pushed back out with a broom stick. Push toward the powerhead end.
A blockage in the powerhead above and behind the brush will also cause this. One here can usually be pushed out using a wooden spoon handle.
Is there even suction at the power head? Drop a bit of paper on the floor and try to vacuum it up to find out.

Ihave a filterqueen majastic its about 10-12 years old and last week the motor seems to not work with full power. what seems to be the problem?

Our filter queen experienced a loss in power. Once we replaced all the filters and cleaned it all out, it worked well again. i think a filter kit cost about $80, but that was a while ago.

No air pressure to **** up dirt

First test suction on unit without the hose, is there suction? If yes, attach hose and test. If no go to the door to outside, attach hose to the top of unit where it blows (under handle on top), put hose out door and turn on. The stuff clogging the hose should blow out the end.

If it wasn't the hose check the wand, and then the power nozzle and using the above to clear obstruction.
