Question about Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Just stopped working

I have a very old filter queen I inherited from my mother-in-law when it got too heavy for her to drag around. I loive, but the other day my daughter was vacuumming, turn it off to move to another room, and when she went to turn it back on it wouldn't.

Is there any kind of fuse or anything in this, or are we talking a power cord problem? Any help would be appreciated.

I bought 2 used filter queens. Does the power head always bog down to the point of stalling out when vacuuming. Very strange for a high end vacuum.


I shouldn't. Check the power nozzle brush to make sure it's clean. Remove thread, hair, etc. that may be wrapped around the brush.
Check the tautness of the belt. If it's too tight it will cause strain on the motor, which will result in this.
Check the ends of the brush. They may need cleaned, or the bearings may need replaced.
I highly recommend taking it to an authorized Filter Queen distrubuter for diagnosis and repair.

There are instructions for replacing the brush at the following site, if you decide to do it yourself.

How do I change the power cord on my Filter Queen vacuum cleaner?


First, remove the top filter cap. quarter turn.
Remove the three screws from under said cap.
The rubber switch cover will come off of the on/off switch pedal there. pull off and set aside.
undo the two clamps and remove the motor (chrome) section from the base.
give the handle a tug and the chrome cap should now come off and allow you access to the wiring and motor/switch.

optional side note: at this point you may want to replace the sponge filter around the motor too.

Remove the cord from the unit and rewire to the same spots the old cord comes out of.
reverse the instructions to put the machine back together.

I'm lookinf for a owners manual for a 70th anniversary Filter Queen Majestic canister vaccuum. My sister in laws mother died and I bought it from her but she can find the manual.


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.

Ihave a filterqueen majastic its about 10-12 years old and last week the motor seems to not work with full power. what seems to be the problem?


Our filter queen experienced a loss in power. Once we replaced all the filters and cleaned it all out, it worked well again. i think a filter kit cost about $80, but that was a while ago.

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.

My filter queen will not run and feels hot


you have got to be kidding me. you want me to pay for your advice after I paid over $2,000 for this vaccum. Not only that, the sales rep that sold the filter queen to me, stole my Oreck vac right out my livingroom. I did not realize until after he left that it was gone. He did mention at the beginnng of the demo that if I bought the filter queen he would take my other one. I had no intention of giving him my Oreck even though I did buy the filter queen. You sales reps go way to far.

How to empty?
Posted by jchale55 on Jun 16, 2008
I inherited this Filter Queen "Cheetah" (but it isn't black ... chrome) and don't know how to empty the thing.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Filter Queen uses a cone filter and there are 2 or 3 clamps to release to remove the cone and then you dump the dirt sitting in the bottom of the canister and then replace the new cone filter and repeat the process. If you have further question feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer. 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.
