Having problems with your Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum ?

Filterqueen cuts out when warm

\015 I have a 27 year old Filterqueen that runs for a few minutes and cuts out. Once it cools down, it starts up again. I've checked the brushes, which seem ok. It's not the main switch because the power nozzle keeps working even when the main suction motor quits. Is there an overheating switch somewhere?\015

Answers :

You should check the disc filter that is located under the paper cone support. The support is secured with a single screw in the middle at the bottom. This filter is commonly overlooked and when it gets dirty will restrict airflow and cause the motor to overheat. Most motors have a Hi-Limit switch incorporated into the motor to protect against overheating. You should also check the top filter (which is probably foam) and replace if it is clogged.

I inherited a Simplicity 4380ED serger. It won't cut the fabric. I changed the lower blade for a sharper one. It is lying level with the throat plate. The upper blade is smooth. The fabric edge goes along the upper cutter and rolls over from the top and goes through the serge stitching.. No cut.
