Which is the best filter queen model? Hi this is Dustin at Great Vacs and I just got this email from a customer. "Hi, I'm looking at a couple of the Filter Queen Vacuums that you have...... I am a serious buyer & would like your professional opinion on which one to get. I want the strongest motor, most durable, etc. I buy a new vacuum seems like every 1-2 years, I'm sick of it, so I'm going to break down & spend more money, I just don't want to have any problems. My Husbands Mom swore by her Filter Queen, so I'm going to take her word for it, I just need help choosing because I don't know anything about Filter Queen. Also, how often do the filters need changed & how much do they cost? How much do the bags cost & how many in a package? Is there any other maintenance issues I should know about? Thanks for any HONEST help you can offer before I make a choice." This was my response to her and I am posting it here to help other people with the same questions.

If you have noticed a loud noise, if your Kirby is difficult to push or it is not cleaning well, troubleshoot for a roller problem. Turn your vacuum off and unplug the cord. Push down the adjustment lever and take off the hood. Now you will be able to get to the area that holds the belt. Check the belt for any wear or extreme tear. A stretched out belt can cause these issues as well and they are easy to replace.
