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!

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 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.
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.
