THe supposed "self cleaning" filter

\015 THe supposed "self cleaning" filter is comptetely clogged. Are we doing something wrong? also, the wand attachment doesnt suck like we'd like it too.\015

Answers :

That filter is coated with a telfon coating and will only "self clean" to a point. You will have to remove it periodiaclly and tap it gently to dislodge dirt from the element. You should also check the secondary filter located under the dirt cup. It is visible through the hole that the filter sits on top of. This filter is washable as is the main cartridge filter. It's important that they are completely dry before installing.
\015\012The hose on this machine is very limited in how much suction it will provide. It is activated by a valve in the base that opens and closes with the handle. When the handle is positioned in the upright position, the valve closes off the front roller suction and diverts it to the hose. These valves are very limited in how well they seal and you normally don't get the full benefit of the suction that the motor actually produces. This is further compounded by debris collecting in the valve and not allowing it to close fully and hence, it will leak. It's just the nature of the beast.
\015\012Keep the filters clean and the hose and the floor function will work much better.

Replacing filter Got a Filter Queen Majestic vacuum from my inlaws when they moved overseas. I am in middle of vacuuming, got a weird noise, so opted to check and clean the filter for first time.
