Having problems with your Rainbow 75th Anniversary Canister Vacuum ?

FQ95x...motor gets very hot very fast

\015 I purchased a Filter Queen 95x as a used vacuum in June '09. The motor gets very hot and so does the cap on top -- to the point that I cannot touch the underside of the cap (where the scent pad is located)when I remove it. Also, when the cap is removed, the exhaust air is extremely hot (just like a hair dryer!) Is this normal? If not, any suggestions? I've heard & read good thinks about this make of vacuums -- did I buy a lemon? Thank you! S.\015

Answers :

These old style majestic always ran on the hot side but since its pushing 20 years old, you need to have it serviced my a filter queen service center. that will help with the heat problem and prolong the life of the machine.
It sounds like you have a blockage either in your hose or the carpet sweeper. Try dropping a coin through the hose. If it comes out then check the sweeper.

Miele Cat & Dog vacuum gets VERY hot and is VERY loud. Hose has no restrictions and I have changed the dust compartment (motor) filter and the exhaust filter. It still gets hot when I run it with the top open and all filters removed, so I'm guessing the problem is with the motor. Should I be going into the motor compartment? If so, what am I looking for?

The handle for my Eureka 5993 AVZ was getting very hot when used. Finally, the wires around the switch melted and now the vacuum will not work. What is wrong? Is the switch bad? The wires only melted in the immediate vicinity of the three-prong switch. Nothing else appears to be wrong; the vacuum worked fine when it was running - except for the handle getting hot.

Brush turning slowly while shampooing. It starts out fast, but after a minute or 2 the brush is not spinning very fast. I have powered it off and let it cool down.
