Question about Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

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

Hi,
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
Marge

I have a Dyson I took out the screws to clean it before I opened the canister now I can not get it together again


You're a bit unclear on what screws you took apart to 'clean it'. If you took the canister apart, then this Snapguide page
How to Clean Dyson DC07 Canister goes through taking the top section thoroughly apart, and has some notes about things needing to line back up properly, which might help in the event that you're not getting things to snap back together right. I took mine apart solo after picking it up cheap at a flea market, and also recall reassembling the top took a little patience.

Good Luck!

Vacuum shut off and will not turn on again. What could be wrong?.


Your switch died, it happens a lot with this brand of shopvac. Just extract the little switch behind the big rocker switch and replace it with one from radio shack, or replace it with a toggle switch. Cheap and easy to do.

Internal switch may be too tight to toggle and became disconnected from plastic mechanical slide mechanism. Replace switch for $20.00 and you should be good to go.

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?


The electrical terminal at the top of the extension wand may be loose or corroded. Unplug the vacuum and remove the wand from the hose assembly. Look at the 2 prongs and clean off any corrosion using a a Q-tip or scrape with a screwdiver if it's more persistent. After cleaning reconnect the wand to the hose and try it again. If the prongs are not corroded, they might be loose instead or they might not be aligned properly. If this is the case then bending the prongs very slightly may help realign them. The part that may be giving you the trouble is called the terminal cover (PN 8191782). It costs about $10 but the problem is knowing the procedure to actually replace the part. CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN HOW TO OPEN UP THE EXTENSION WAND TO REPLACE THE TERMINAL COVER ??

On-off switch


Hi Hugh. The 2100 has a rocker switch under neath the button. it is probably broken, or the button has a worn detent spring. If you would like, I could send you a switch kit with the rocker, button, and detent spring enclosed for around 20 dollars plus ship. If you want to investigate further, The side bumbers on the canister slide off towards the front thus breaking the machine in half. You can then access the switch mechanism and see what is going on. I hope this helps, let me know. Thanks, Rene(the Vacuum doctor)

I have a shopvac model#86776-24. The toggle switch went bad and I'm looking for a replacement switch


I got a replacement switch at a local electronic supply store: Philmore Miniature Rocker Switch part number 30-043. Shop vac changed the switch recently to two push buttons from the old rocker style. This update works a lot better.

Replace on/off switch on hoover vacuum


My wife picked one up on the side of the road that someone had tossed. The power switch would not turn off. I took the two bolts out of the top part of the handle, and then removed the screws along the back. This will remove the required panels to access the On/Off switch. Once I found the actual on/off button, I found it to be frozen in the "ON" position. After manipulating it for a few minutes, I got the switch to work. This machine now operates great, and I now have a Hoover :)

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.
