Having problems with your Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum ?

No air pressure to **** up dirt

\015 I have an old filter queen, from back in the 90's, and it's always worked fine. Now there isn't much suction power. I've cleaned all the dust out, taken it apart but I don't know how to increase it's power. When turned on, with clean filter, etc, it barely picks up loose dirt on the floor. What do I do\015

Answers :

First test suction on unit without the hose, is there suction? If yes, attach hose and test. If no go to the door to outside, attach hose to the top of unit where it blows (under handle on top), put hose out door and turn on. The stuff clogging the hose should blow out the end.
\015\012If it wasn't the hose check the wand, and then the power nozzle and using the above to clear obstruction.

No suction I have the central vac type. It has no suction at the can. I pulled the hose going to the walls and tested there...and nothing. I removed the dirt can and checked the motor ...it is spinning but does not feel like any suction. I checked the exhaust and it is pushing strong air out. I also cleaned the filter and still nothing. Is there a relay or something that would cause only exhaust air. I emptied the can of dirt and put it back together and have absolutely no air.....hear the motor

On some units there is a screen that protects the impeller of the motor. If this gets sealed off with debris then it is like putting a potato in the tail pipe of a car. Taking the top off the unit reveals the motor. DO UN-PLUG the unit first from th ... Electrolux Central Vacuum

I am trying to install a train air horn. i bought a viair compressor for it. the horns themselves have a 12 volt hookup going to what i believe is acting like a solenoid. when charged, you complete the circuit and walah, the horn blasts. the problem im having is when the compressor is building pressure, the air horn is automatically putting out a dull sound, getting louder as the pressure gets more and more. it sounds like its out of one horn however. it is doing that without the 12 v hookup. is

Hi! just a tip regarding the sound that comes up when building pressure. Is there a gasket or rubber seal on the horn? You may need to replace this for it may be worn. The air may be coming out of the worn seals resulting to sound even when not trigg ... Vacuums
