Question about Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

I just got the majestic and it doesn't seem to have a lot of suction power- I ran water thru the hose and it drained out fine I also put the hose on top and blew it out. Could it still be the hose?-or does it sound like a bigger problem?

Did you change the filter cone? Clogged pores can and do inhibit airflow. Bent fan blades can be another problem. Holes, slits, and cracks, no matter how small, in the hose can result in reduced suction.
And you should NEVER run water through a hose that contains electrical wiring, which I suspect yours does.

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?

Decreased suction for filterqueen vacuum


Put a broomstick or such down the hose, something may be stuck. Look inside with the bag out, is there a screen before the motor?

I can run my dc17 to clean my floors but when I put it upright to use the wand it turns off


I called Dyson and they walked me thru the process of making sure nothing was blocking the airflow and suction. Everything seemed fine (not blocked). We couldn't figure out anything on the phone and I was still having the same problem.

Trying to figure out the solution, I removed (entirely) the filter that you're supposed to clean every 6 months and ran the vacuum (I cleaned this filter 2 months ago). It worked! I cleaned the filter (again!) and let the vacuum run and it seemed fine.

I can understand why they won't instruct you to completely remove the filter but it would save a lot of time if they just had you check ALL the options.

I hope this helps!

I have a Eureka Contour model 2900 type A upright vacuum, the roller works fine nothing clogged, took it apart motor blade is free of debris, no suction from tube and blasts OUT air from the front HEPA...


Even with your explanation,it seems the hose is clogged.Try taking the hose off,then blow through it or pour water through it.If this doesn't do it,make sure the suction canals are going to the proper areas.

Hose has lots of suction but main part doesn't, can you suggest how I can fix it please


By the "main part", it sounds like you may be referring to the electric power nozzle? Look down the stem or neck of the nozzle as it may be plugged. You should be able to see from the opening of the neck through to the brush roll (just slightly). Be careful should you decide to disassemble the nozzle. Some of the newer nozzles can be easily destroyed by over tightening the screws.

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.

Vacuum hose has little suction.


There is most likely a clog in the hose. If the hose has poor suction the foot probably has poor suction as well seeing that the hose is what gives the foot assy suction.

Vaccum has no suction


Here is what we did to fix the problem of our vacuum having no suction.
We unscrewed the three screws on the back and took the hose off of the vacuum.  Then we took the hose outside and put the water hose through the vacuum hose and turned on the water.  After about 30 second the water pushed through a dust bunny the size of a fist and a marker.  Basically, the vacuum did not have suction because the hose was clogged with dust, etc.  After reassembling the vacuum, it worked just fine.
