Question about Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

Red light comes on Filter Queen Majestic

When I turn on the vacuum the red light comes on. It has been emptied, all filters appear to be clean. It seems to be overheating, it gets very warm when it's running. Any suggestions?

    1994 majestic. red light on. otherwise seems to work fine. all filters are fresh and the hose flows freely. Is there a secret reset button somewhere?

Does it do this with the hose off? If it only does it when the hose is hooked up to it, then you have a clog in the hose.

The clean filter red is on

That is just a light that comes on when the machine is having trouble breathing. Clean the filter and check the vacuum for plugs. If the filter is too bad you may have to replace it in order to turn that light out. Run it too long that way and you'll burn out the motor so it's a good thing to get fixed.

Good Luck

Using a vacuum cleaner for wet cat litter??? Not a good idea at the best of times! The machine's cutting out because it's overheating. You don't tell us the make or model of your machine - some filters are washable, many are not. Your user manual should tell you. As a general rule, cloth- or sponge-type filters are probably washable, paper ones are not. If you do wash the filter, give it at least 24 hours in a warm place to dry thoroughly before re-using.

The red light on my hayden 3600 vacuum won't go off

I have a 6000 and it does the same thing. I simply unplug the unit and plug it back in after cleaning the filter and dumping the cannister. That seems to reset the warning system.

Stopped working - warning light on

There is an electronic circuit board on the motor that may have gone bad and will have to replaced, part # 06836740 and sells for around $75.00, for model S516. But if this a S316, then it could be the speed control mounted on the motor, Part # 04416342 and sells for around $83.00. Both of these models are Cat Naad Dog so you need the model number berfore you order a part.
