    My vacuum was working fine yesterday.  I just went to vacuum and the canister does nothing.  I won't turn on or anything.  I used several outlets to make sure it wasn't the power and also emptied the canister in case it was that.  However, nothing. It is about 6 years old.  Do they have a life time expectancy?

There is no power to my Filter Queen power nozzle. I have cleaned the connection and there is still nothing.


There is an electrical connection at the canister end and again at the beater end. If the beater is not working it is mostly that this is where you problem is. You need to test first to see if there is power at the canister end and then at the beater end. If there is no power at the canister it could be the outlet or something internal. If there is no power at the beater end then that outlet, or the cord could be the problem. If you have power and that end then the problem is likely within the wiring in the beater or in the motor itself

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...


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.

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:
Filter Queen Power Nozzle Belt to Fit All Majestic models using a flat belt

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.
Filter Queen Majestic Owner’s Manual

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,

I have a Vacu Queen V3000 and it stopped working in the middle of a job. I verified that I have power at the outlet that it plugs into and then checked motor resistance from the plug and I got about 600...


As a quick test Plug in the vac again and turn on the switch, then try your power head. If the head works you have a motor problem, if the head doesn't you likely have a cord problem.
You seem to be saying it failed while running??? which generally indicates your switch is the suspect.
Check the motor for a worn or sticking carbon brush.
Motor is access by removing the chrome lid and 3 screws under the handle., then removing the paper cone and unscrewing the center screw a t he bottom of the plastic.cone cage...

It is always best to have a cirtified & Authorized Service Tech or Center do the work and only with genuine Filter Queen parts and supplies. Both can be found at 800-344-1840 or in Iowa 888-637-4692

If a Authorized Tech can not come out,

  7. Now you can remove the 4 screw that hold the handle.

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:
