Having problems with your Panasonic Vacuums ?

My Panasonic performance plus platinum vacuum cuts off and on while using the beater bar, this doesn't happen at all using the stair cleaning attachment. It appear electrical contact is being lost where the lower plug makes contact.


Answers :

The solution to my problem which is located at the lower electrical plug on the long wand was to expermint using a nickel and placing this in an area where the long wand connects with the beater bar section, here there is a gap which allows too much clearance thus losing electrical contact at times and then making contact. A nickel is about .075 thousands thick so I hacksawed a flat piece of metal that was this same thickness, the other dimensions of this little piece are 3/8 inch wide by 5/8 in length, I then forced this little piece in the above mentioned gap which places tension maintaining electrical contact. It works fine now, there is either wear in the electrical contacts plug in, a new lower electrical plug in line will fix this but I can order one later I need to vacuum the whole house so now I can.

The electricity in the apt attached to my house lost power in two of the walls. It happened when the cleaning ladies I think were using a vacuum, they don't speak english very well so I'm not sure. I have looked at the circuit breaker a # of times and nothing seems to have been tripped. I have also inspected the outlets and they seem to be fine. Can you help me?


Even know the breaker doesn't look tripped it might be. You have to flip it all the way off and then back on again. That is most likely what has happened. If that doesn't work check to make sure a GFI hasn't tripped. They are usually loc ... Vacuums

I have a Kenmore upright progrssive intell clean. For some reason it isn't sucking when I use it to vacuum. When I use attachments they work fine, but when I plug the hose back in after using the attachments and turn it back on it makes a weird noise and I can feel air blowing out of the back. Can you help me resolve this problem?

My Hoover Windtunnel, 12-amp, UGG16-900 (or U6616-900 - hard to make out the "G"s from the "6"s) suddenly lost suction this morning. The dirt collection thing is completely clean (I always clean it out after using), the side filter is dirty but not destructively so, and I can see nor feel any obstructions in the hoses. Should I take it in (a real hassle in NYC) or get a new dyson? LOL.


Usually on this machine the door/valve assembly is to blame. if something gets caught in the door/valve assembly it can break this part. you can take it in to see what the est. would be. hope this helps ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have a Dyson DC07 Yellow Vac, I use this vacuum professionally and clean it after every job so there is no issues with the filter which are replaced regularly. When you turn it on it makes a noise as if it were blocked....I have checked all pipes, hoses and now disassembled the machine to the point where the motor is out. I have found that a small rubber valve or bleed valve (Attached to the right hand detachable filter housing and activated via an internal spring) is popping when the vac

For the first time, I tried using my Kirby Sentria shampoo attachment. I've lost the manual but found instructions online for making the swap from regular vac to shampoo-er and got it all assembled. The foam laid down just fine, however, when I run the vac back over the foam to pick it up, there is not a stitch of water showing up in the tray. First I thought maybe it was bc I hadn't put that much of the foam/water onto the carpet, but 12 hours later, the carpet is still wet in spots. Clearly

I have the same problem with intermitant power, however, it does not make sense that the problem is in the upper powerhead (which is what a repair guy told me) because-- when I use the other attachements it is fine. The problem only occurs when I use the carpet (big)attachment so that the roller will not turn. Couldn't it just be in the area where the bottom of the handle attaches into the carpet attachment?


You can test the auxiliary plug to the roller/beater attachment with a volt meter if you know how and take precautions. Check for 115-120 volts at the beater/roller attachment plug.

I have cleaned out the canister and have taken apart the vacuum head (for cleaning carpets) and it doesn't seem to be blocked but it seems to lose suction by the time it reaches the head.
