First eliminate other possible causes: check for blockages and leaks in the tubes, and obstructions or tangles in the rotating brush. This sort of thing comes under the category of regular maintenance that you should be doing every now and then anyway. If none of those things is the cause, then you should replace the drive belt. Other possible solutions can be checked out on the following links

You might not enjoy doing this but over a period of time moisture and dirt build up in the sucktion hose of your vacuum and forms hard dirt clods. You will n ieed to take the suction hose loose from the beater brush assemby and take a stick or wire coat hanger run it up in the suction hose. You will be able to feel the clods twist the coat hanger a loosen up the clods then shake the hose untill clods start falling out. This will solve your suction problem

Filter queen vacuum head has no power


More information needed. When you turn on the vacuum do you hear the motor running? Is the problem that there is no suction at the head? Is there suction at the canister when the hose is removed? I would first check to make sure that there is no obstruction in the hose. Have you checked the filters to see if they are clean?

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!

How often is it necessary to change the filter one on a Filter Queen Majestic?


The best thing to do to both, keep your Majestic suction and air flow strongest, and keep from pulling dirt & dust from being pulled past the filters which can cause damage to the motor, and charcoal filter, replace the filter once a month. If you use it longer than that it will both loose suction and will cause your Medipure or Enviropure "charcoal" filters to wear out prematurely. Mark the change date right on the filter or on your calendar to help keep track.

No air pressure to **** up dirt


First test suction on unit without the hose, is there suction? If yes, attach hose and test. If no go to the door to outside, attach hose to the top of unit where it blows (under handle on top), put hose out door and turn on. The stuff clogging the hose should blow out the end.

If it wasn't the hose check the wand, and then the power nozzle and using the above to clear obstruction.

Filter Queen, carpet attachment problem???


Open it up and see if the dirt inlet is clogged. It would be by the brush roll. But you must have a clog.
