Step Switch replacement

I have to replace the "Step Switch" on our Filter Queen. I need some direction in doing this.
Does anyone know how this is done?
I could just start taking things apart, but I want to do it right and have no pieces left over when I am finished!

Thank you.

    Well I have kind of the same problem, I have an older filterqueen 1970's, and one of the wires came off the switch and some of the other wire nuts were off. Don't ask me why this didn't short out but it didn't. Do you have a diagram of how the wires should go?



    Thanks

Take off the cap on top, remove the 3 screws, then the top comes apart and you can get to the switch.

How do I change the power cord on my Filter Queen vacuum cleaner?


First, remove the top filter cap. quarter turn.
Remove the three screws from under said cap.
The rubber switch cover will come off of the on/off switch pedal there. pull off and set aside.
undo the two clamps and remove the motor (chrome) section from the base.
give the handle a tug and the chrome cap should now come off and allow you access to the wiring and motor/switch.

optional side note: at this point you may want to replace the sponge filter around the motor too.

Remove the cord from the unit and rewire to the same spots the old cord comes out of.
reverse the instructions to put the machine back together.

I just purchased a tune up kit for my filter queen, how do I replace the dome cap pad? I can see it but I dont know how to get to it.


I was trying to replace the silencer filter, we had to take the dome cap off and remove the screws by the sn plate then lift the top off. It looks like the motor has been replaced at some point (I purchased this one used) so the wires had wire nuts holding them together. We had to separate the wires for the light so we could remove the old filter and install the new one.

There is very little power and lots of sparking from the brushes on a Filter Queen motor out of Model 95.


Your motor needs major work. The brushes are probably the cause. My presumption is the armature is burned.

You may be able to get a replacement from Filter Queen and it is worth a e-mail to them.

Alternatively, you might find a replacement at a Fixya.com advertiser or at www.repairclinic.com

Motor Brush for older model Filter Queen


Is there a Johnstone Supply in your area? How about an ACE Hardware. A vacum repair place? Sewing machine repair place?

If you have the data, ACE or Johnstone should be able to help you. Don't discount other electrical supply places. You will not get help at a big box place.

When I Googled "Filter Queen parts", I found lots of places on the WWW. There must be something close to you.

Give it a try. Let me know if this works for you.

My filter queen majestic needs help


Try replacing the belt. It's not a difficult procedure, just unplug the machine, turn it over, remove the two screws which hold the chrome plate on and you will see the belt. Take the roller brush out by pulling up on one side, then remove it from it's housing. Then you will see what will probably be a worn out belt, rough on the inside and stretched. Replace the belt making sure to rotate the roller to ensure proper alignment. Then replace the chrome plate, and plug it in.
