Question about Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

Majestic Filter Queen made a pop sound and sparked, around the top round area

Hi! Thank God for this site and for all the kind people willing to share their knowledge! I LOVE my Majestic Filter Queen, so today when I was vacuuming, and heard a pop accompanied by a spark I panicked and turned it off. It seemed to come from the very top. Later I turned it on for a min, and it worked, but I'm scared to use it until I know what might have happened.
Does anyone know what it might have been?

Thank You,
Michelle

It is a common fault as the power cord flexes - applies to any vacuum cleaner
can't help you with dismantling cos i'm in UK not US (little old england, cornwall to be exact)
however it is usually fairly obvious how to remove the top to get at the entry of the power lead
forget you are a woman and have a go!!

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:

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,

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.

Electrical cord


It has a **** shell like closure on the inside and can normally be popped out by squeezing with pliers. It will have a slightly oval appearance, you must squeeze it round and pull.

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.

Broken belt on filter queen majestic power nozzle


Hi,
Try removing the roller assembly again, and check the end bearing pieces are the correct way around. Often they have 2 or more settings.
Check all debris is removed from location slots, and see if the roller is actually going into position before the cover is attatched.

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:
