Getting mist thru exhaust...according to your website i need to take out the filter...how do i do that?...i have craftsman model wetvac that doubles as a bllower..thanks


Pull the blower out from the lid. flip it over and your should see 3 or 4 screws that hold the filter cover on. remove those screws, remove the filter cover, then remove the filter. It is a dirty job. Most often the filter can be beaten clean. Some are washable. Clean or replace then reinstall. Good luck!

How do i install a filter on a eurika optima upright model 431? I was given a filter model hf-7 and was wondering how it would fit.


Hi nena,

The hf7 model is not made to fit the 431 series.

I believe I can find the filter and instructions for you if you give me the entire model number.
The 431 series include several models.

Do you have your instruction manual?

Changing filters


You didn't specify which brand of vacuum you need to change a filter on. Or which filter. Many machines have more than one filter.
Usually all you have to do is turn a butterfly clip to take the old filter out, or sometimes, just open a door or cap and it will come out to change it. This usually is not difficult to do.
Giving us the brand, and or model number of your machine, would help immensely, so we can give you assistance. Please post your problem again. Thanks.

I got a used filter queen majestic vacuum at a yard sale and want to fix it up and start with new filters where do i get the filters and how do i change them


Hello,

Well you bought a really great vacuum cleaner. The Filter Queen's are extremely durable and very well made vacuums. They sell brand new for over $2500, so picking one up at a yard sale was a great find by you.

There are several different filters on this model that need to be replaced. Here's a link to a 6 month supply kit that we sell, which contains all the filters needed for a 6 month period:
Filter Queen MediPure Filters 6 month supply

The only other part that you should be replaced on a regular basis is the belt (only if the vacuum has a motorized power nozzle for cleaning carpets). The belt should be changed every 6 months or so. Even if it doesn't break, these belts will stretch out and not work as well as a new belt would. Here's a link to the belt that will fit your Filter Queen Majestic:
Filter Queen Power Nozzle Belt to Fit All Majestic models using a flat belt

Here's a link to the owner’s manual for a newer Majestic model. This is the only one that is available online. Even though it's a newer model, the maintenance and care will be exactly the same for your model.

I really hope this was the information that you needed. If you have any follow up questions, please don't hesitate to ask them by using the comment box here on the Fixya repair page.

If this did help you, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave some feedback for me. This is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi,
Yes there should be a filter fitted onto the top section.

For suppliers, it would be cheapest to find your nearest stockist, or buy online and have it shipped. It's still current stock - so spares should be readily available.

Sears stock it -

I have a Hoover Triple Vortex 1500 vacuum which i bought in 2002. I want to know which filter i need for this model? Thanks M


Hi Consult this page taken from Hoover's UK Accessory line up:
http://www.hooverspares.com/productsearch.aspx?k=vortex
I suggest that you look at the filters on your model very carefully as some of the filters featured on Hoover's UK website aren't always correct. Once you find the filter you need look at EBay.co.uk for cheaper prices!
