Question about Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

My filter queen majestic quit working. I opened up the unit to see what was wrong and I did not immediately notice anything wrong. Upon furter examination I noticed one of the traces on the printed circuit card was burnt. I used a soldering iron to "bridge the trace and it appeared to fix the problem for a while. Now it has stopped working again, and when I jumper the trace to run the motor it seems to work. Should I just replace the card? Or is there a more serious problem with too much current being drawn? Thanks....

I recommend replacing the card. Soldering involves the risk of further damaging the card, so it would be useless anyway. Why waste valuable time?
There is a possibility of the motor overheating, generally due to a blockage in the airflow system somewhere. Check all filters, hose, wands, and power nozzle for dirt and/or clogs.
Check wiring connections, including hose to wands to power nozzle. Check all switches.
It sounds like you know how to do this, but if you have any questions, repost.

Got a Filter Queen Majestic Limited Edition, the one with the high and low power switch, an I have to change the power cord. How can I open the main unit to reach that power cord? Thanks,


first remove the top cap under your handle.
Then, remove the three screws under the handle.
remove the rubber cover on the switch
undo the clamps on the side of the unit
lift off the chrome cover with the cord on it by the handle itself.

When you have the access there, change the filter inside the upper chamber as well.

Good luck

Hi There,

Here's a link to the owners manual for your Filter Queen Majestic:

This may be a little newer model, however this instructions and use of this machine will be identical to the one that you have. They really have changed anything on their machines other then the looks of them for a decades.

Hope this helped! Please be sure to rate my repair helpful, or leave feedback if this answered your questions.

Carbon brush type


Zarico the brushes will be very difficult to find on that particular unit. unfortunatly the only way to resolve this issue is to update the motor itself. i can help you find a cheep alternative. being as all filter queens are on the same design you can replace the motor itself or update the entire top motor portion. here are a few links to try and help you out with your problem. http://cgi.ebay.com/FILTER-QUEEN-MAJESTIC-LTD-ED-MOTOR-UNIT-ONLY-PERFECT_W0QQitemZ390011060044QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item390011060044&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A570%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318

Motor


Filter ?Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum – Motor
Motor?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
If your Filter Queen Motor is out or not working, the customer can replace the motor if they are mechanically minded and mark the wires as they remove the old motor with the new motor or you can have it serviced by your local vacuum dealer in your area, you can pickup the motor @ a local vacuum cleaner dealer in you area by checking the yellow pages or to contact the Filter Queen factory listed below. It requires a new motor and a new gasket; the biggest problem would be the wiring of the new motor. The factory information is listed below:
