Check the brushes on the motor. If they are worn out replace them. It a cheap fix. Otherwise, it is most likely the motor. Mine just burnt after 6 years of service. Its a $150 part but you won't find a better built vacuum on the market.

Sparking moter and smell of burning


will be a good idea to go the repair shop for testing and repair.
you must test the Motor for bearing,brushes, winding faulty, etc.
Of course and clean hoses, and any parts from any debris.
God bless you. Use the common sense.

How do I get rid of the bad smell coming from my filter queen


Change all 4 of the filters, and wash the dirt container with soap, water and a little bleach. The only other thing that would cause a bad smell would be the actual motor, but that would be more of a burning smell. Good luck!

There has been a recall on the hose, wand, and power nozzle. Mine just caught fire! Burned a whole in my carpet. I'd contact their customer service department and find out if yours is on the recall list.

My filterqueen majestic is 10yrs old and just started to spark and smell of burning ive took it apart


If you have a burning smell from the motor, your motor is shot. You should be able to buy anew AMTEK Lamb motor for about $85-110 US. Request a double ball bearing motor as it will have a longer life span.
Also buy a fresh internal filter kit. There will be a small 5 .5 inch filter disc inside the cone protecting the motor in the event that the cone tears. Replace it .Also save and reinstall the small insulating disc that sits between the top of your motor and the screen at the top of the vac. This is to prevent electric shock. This disc is the size of a coin.
Post back if you need more help. Wiring is very easy. Do NOT twist your wires before installing into the connectors, twist the connectors, then tape to be certain they are on tight.

Motor gets hot in moments and shuts off


True, the motor has safety measures to stop it from overheating... that's why it shut down. You smelled something, so some kind of damage was done. It's possible that the over temp switch itself got fried. Doesn't sound too good from here.

Burning Smell coming from the moter


This could be a motor problem. There is always a slight blue arcing that occurs when an electrical motor runs and can be visible through the exhaust vent, but any excessive arcing indicates a problem. If the carbon brushes are sticking, this will cause excessive arcing and can be corrected by an experience service person, but if there is any electrical failure, the motor would have to be replaced. There are no parts available for these motors and the expense of replacing an armature (the likely culprit) would be more than the motor. This could also be as simple as a worn belt, but usually, belts will not produce the smell your describing. When a motor is burning out, it will produce an acrid odor that will linger for a long time.
