Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The sounds coming from the motor sounds like it is the 2 sheet metal fans that do loosen up and start to make noise; and if you are handy and can do service work yourself you can replace the fans, but make sure you mark the wires when you remove the wire and the motor. If you have questions feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or cal the Filter Queen cust serv line listed below. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

We were told we can add water to the canister instead of using a paper filter. Is there a manual that shows the operation of the Majestic Filter Queen 95x?


This is a DRY vacuum only. Do not put any type of water in your vacuum unless you are cleaning the dirt container only.

Adding water to this machine will cause it to **** the water straight up through the motor and well, water and electricity do not mix.

How to change upper filters?


Open the vac as though to change the cone and remove the plastic inner cone with the slotted screw at the bottom.. Underneath you will find a 5" disk , likely coated with fine dust.
That is the one which needs to be changed. Around that disc will be three more screws holding the upper housing onto the vac. These ones are accessible from inside, if changing the motor.
Below the handle of the vac there is a serial number ring and three screws in an offset triangle. If you remove these and the rubber cover for the toe switch, the vac housing will come off. This will reveal the `foam or cotton ``muffler``. You can replace it or wash and dry it if foam. It acts as a muffler more than a a filter....

My Filter Queen just started making noise from the motor area, it was very hot. Upon removing the top thing that covers the area where the air blows out, there were sparks and it smelled pretty bad. My...


The motor will need either a rebuild with new bearing, or replacement. Parts should be no more than $100 .EASY project. 20 minutes max fro a pro shop. If you can tie your shoes you can do this one yourself.
If replacing, upgrade to a ball/ ball ( double ball bearing) motor, same height, generally an AMTEK Lamb. A ball ball motor will give longer life
Under the cap you have removed are 3 screws.
You will detach them last. Note they are slightly offset in their pattern.
Open the vac as though changing the cone. Remove the plastic cone by undoing the center screw. Remove the inner filter disc and change . This should be changed every 6 months...
Now you will see three, screws or nuts in a triangle pattern. Detach them. Remove the rubber switch pedal from above .
.Now detach the upper 3 screws and the motor housing will lift off. Voila. Inspaect the cord inside and out for wear at it's socket. Now is the time to shorten if required.
There should be an insulating disc about the size of a coin between the motor top and the screen below the vac handle. You MUST reinstall on the new motor in case of a short in the vac.
Remove the foam or felt "muffler" and clean or replace.
Remove the wire nuts and note the wiring pattern for the switch, motor and power head. Note the motor position versus the cord. Mark with felt pen and reinstall the same.
Do not twist the wires when reinstalling, only twist the wire nuts. Check that they are tight and reinstall in opposite order.
Please post back if tehre is a problem or this helps

I need a wiring diagram & detailed specifications for my Filter Queen Majestic limited edition.


Open the vac by removing 3 screws below the handle area and the long screw at the bottom of the cone. If the motor has been removed, you will have 2 motor leads , 2 power head socket leads, and 2 switch leads as well as the cord. Do not twist your wires first when pairing, twist with the wire nut ony and tape afterword as there is metal nearby in the housing area
1 side of the cord goes to the switch only. The opposite side of the switch will go to 1 of each of the motor and Socket. The remaining motor and socket leads pair with the remaining cord lead.
While you are in there change the round filter dic covering the front of the motor and you could change the foam/ felt wrap around the inside of the housing.
There is a insulating disc at the top of the motor to prevent shock between motor and screen. Do not remove it.

FQ95x...motor gets very hot very fast


It sounds like you have a blockage either in your hose or the carpet sweeper. Try dropping a coin through the hose. If it comes out then check the sweeper.

I'm not really a technician, but I used to sell Filter Queens and was taught how to maintain them, and have tackled "fixing" some problems. I am a 71 year old great-grandmother of 8, but have good health...


i just took my old majestic apart to fix the motor
on mine, when you open the top of the machine where the exit hook up is
you take out those three screws
the top case comes off and you can get to those three screws and alot more of the motor as well

Good Luck !

Replacing the powerhead motor


depending on which powerhead you have the screw may be under the decal on top of the powerhead. you should be able to feel an indent above the motor. most of the other heads do not have a "hidden screw".

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:

The cone filter if put on right should collect the dirt, the tabs shoud be on the edge so when you put the top on, it keeps it in place. Wish I could help more, guess I would have to see it to figure it out. Here is a pic. of the top part, are all filters ok? There is one under the round card-board besides the one at the bottom of the motor. #18 is the filter.
