Question about Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

On/Off Toggle Switch - I messed it up when I took top apart to clean.

When I removed the top portion of the vacuum to clean it, the on/off toggle fell out. I tried to reinsert it, but was unsuccessful aligning it. It no longer makes contact with the switch inside. Any suggestions. Thanks

How do I remove and replace the inverted bag filter?

Inverted filter bags can be tough to remove. The best way is to grab the bag closest to the top portion where it attaches to the canister. The bag is locked in place by a metal rings that presses out. You want to grab a portion of the bag (some bags have a holder tab) and pull towards the center. The goal is to make a C shape of the ring that is holding the bag in place. Once the bag collapse into a C shape, the bag can be removed and cleaned or replaced. The same technique is best for re-installing the new or cleaned bag.

I was using my Craftsman 12 Gal 5.0 160 HP Wet/Dry Vac, dry vacuuming, and it just stopped working. I did check the receptacles but that was not the issue.

Good day!

Try to see the motor and the carbon brush that connected to it..

This are the step on how to open or remove the cover of the vacuum to reveal the motor.
  1. Take off the top panel.
  2. Loosening all screws that you will see inside that top panel.
  3. After that, the top cover of the vacuum release and the image of the motor reveal.
  4. Now try to look at the motor and remove it to the unit by unscrewing it.
  5. Next, try to spin it manually using your 2 fingers and hold the plate then spin it.If the plate is hard to spin,the motor is need to re-align.
  6. To re-align the motor you have to loosen the screws at the 4 corners then release the rotor then back again.
  7. After that,clean the bushing of motor and the rotor and apply the motor oil for lubrication.Then re-install it and tighten the screws on the 4 corners while you re-align the rotor.
  8. Use a rubber mallet to align the rotor,hit the body of the motor while you tighten the 4 corners screws.
  9. After that spin the plate again to test the alignment,if the plate spin it smoothly.the alignment is OK.
  10. After that you have to test the resistance of the motor to make sure that the carbon brush is contact to the armature of the rotor.Use a multimeter (range in ohms) then point the test probe directly to the carbon brush wire.It should have not more than 25 ohms depends on the horse power of the motor.
  11. When the reading is open the contact of the carbon brush is reaching the armature of the rotor.Replace the carbon brush.
If you accomplish all of the steps above and the you found a defective parts.Test the vacuum by powering it ON.

Thank you very much and wish you luck.

Where does the static wire go in the handle. It fell out and now I am having trouble getting it back in. I fixed the cord myself. Model XL2100rh

If you look closely, you can see a sahllow groove along the inside top of the handle. The curved portion of the static wire fits in that. One end fits in a hole just below the switch, the other end just goes down inside the metal post.

There is a break in the cord where the clamp is entering the unit of our Majestic IAQS system Filterqueen Lux have tried to get into it but cant seem to get it open! Any ideas?? This unit is approximately...

undo the side clamps so that you can get to the dirt below.
Grab the handle and remove the top portion of the canister.
Take the top portion and to go the table.
Remove all the attachments (if they are even attached).
twist and remove the cap under the handle at the top.
remove the three screws under the cap at the top of the machine.
when the screws are out, pull up on the handle and the chrome top should come off from the plastic cone underneath. all of your wires and switch are under the chrome dome there.

cut your cord about 1 inch from the machine, and re-insert it into the machine making sure you do it safely. Wire connectors and NO TAPE.

Good luck.

Power Head keeps cutting in and out while vacuuming???Canister motor keeps running but the power head starts and stops like there is a short or some loss of connection somewhere. Any ideas?

My kenmore progressive vacuum had the same problem. The electrical terminal at the bottom of the wand was corroded. I used a flat head screw driver to scrape the female portion of the connector as best as I could. I then took off the plastic cover on the vacuum head that had the male portion of the connection. I used sand paper to clean the two connection prongs. I also spread them apart slightly for better connection (more interference) when the connection is made. I reassembled, and our vacuum is working fine now. I hope that helps.

How to dismantle vacuum hose at the handle with the power switch on epic 6500

Good that you didn't just pry things open. If you look closely you will see several tiny plastic caps under which will be hidden screws. Remove the screws and gently separate the "handle cover" from the main handle, then slide the handle off the hose. Clean the internal handle contacts and the rings on the hose. Reassemble by installing handle onto hose fully to align contacts, then installing wiring cover portion onto the hand grip.
Any evidence of black pitting on the rings needs to be polished with fine sandpaper and the finger contacts adjusted for tension to eliminated further shorting. After cleaning, you can apply a very thin film of petroleum jelly to the contact rings for smoother rotation.

The vacuum won't turn on. We've tried multiple outlets with the same problem. We've cleaned the filters, which caused it to turn on once, but a week later the problem occurred again. HELP!

I have this vacuum and mine would not turn out and it turned out to be the top half where the power switch is located was not aligned properly. I ended up putting a new screw in, but before I could see where the vacuum was not aligned and would just push the top half forward to align with bottom half then vacuum would work. I believe they should have supplied a longer screw to keep this from happening.

The toggle pedal you push to engage/disengage the wheels fell off

The screw head is probably what's called a torx screw, and you can get torx screw drivers and sockets at the hardware store.

Bissel Proheat Carpet cleaner

My Bissell had the same problem. The hand attachment does not use heated water. So I Found a clog of calcium and dirt in the heater portion of the unit. The heater is in the handle behind the red heater light on the front. Remove the upper portion of the handle. Remove the lower two screws in the lower portion and the parts will split apart. Remove the hoses and remove the heater. (mark where the wires go) The bottom of the heater can be removed with a screwdriver. The tubes leading into the heater is where the clog was but there was a lot of debris inside Make sure to clear it all and the hoses as well. I put it together and it works great.
