Having problems with your Filter Queen Cheetah II Ash - MU305 Bagless Canister Vacuum ?

No suction on old-style canister Filter Queen

\015 Hi Don,I've tried all the usual tips and tricks to make sure nothing is stuck or jammed in either the metal tube attachment or hose (plus I did the reverse blow thing), but I still can't get any suction. Any suggestions besides taking it to my "discount" Filter Queen vacuum store here in Canada, which isn't discount at all! (They charge a fortune!)\015

Answers :

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Sorry my suggestions did not help but I have a few more suggestions, what type of hoe do you have? Is it a cloth, braided hose or is it a vinyl electric hose? If it is a clothe hose check the suction on the machine end then hook up your hose and then check the suction on the hose end, if there is a leak of some sort replace the hose – otherwise it may be the motor and then you may what to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer, the Filter Queen Factory or check the listing I will give your below for a price quote from the factory or another dealer. Question? Do you have a cone filter in the unit now and is there a bat filter around the top of the motor area?
Canada is probably a little higher priced then if you ship the vacuum to maybe the US or the FQ Factory.

My filter queen just had the motor rebuilt last year and was basically a brand new unit when I got it back. It is not picking anything up now when I vacuum. The beater bar on the carpet attachment is turning fine and when I take all the attachments off the hose I can feel the suction being created like it should be picking up debris just fine. I have emptied the canister even when it did not have much in it; however, it still will not pick anything up off the carpet. It picks up debris tempo

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 and am very active. The Filter Queen I have is r, usedeally old, and I have kept it up. Just this week, however, I turned it on and it had a noise which sounds like something might be loose in the motor. I have always been very careful to have a clean hepa filter to protect the motor, so I know

Lost suction I've only used this vacuum a few times, it's practically brand new. Now, one I turn it on, it sounds fine, and the hose feels as if it's getting some suction, but it's not strong enough to actually **** things up from the carpet into the canister. I have completely emptied the canister and bought a new filter. Nothing seems to help.

Hoover Windtunnel T-Series UH20700 9 mos old. Keeps clogging in hose just above the beater brush assembly. I think it clogs because the suction is too weak to pull much through.
