Brushes not working on vacuum - Panasonic Vacuums

Answers :

It would be much more helpful if you would leave the model number of your machine so that I can know exactly which model you have.

If your Panasonic is a canister model, and the rest of the machine works fine, just not the power head, the first thing you should check is the reset button on the powerhead. On the top of the power head there is an "Overload Reset" button. This is a protection feature that will automatically shut off the brushes if anything is vacuumed into the brushes, i.e. sock underneath of the bed, tassels on an oriental rug, etc. This will cut off the brushes to prevent any damage to the belt. With the machine turned on, and the hose switched to carpets, push this reset button down, and the brushes should come on.

If this doesn't fix the problem, and you have a canister model, you may need to replace the electrical hose at this point. You can easily test the hose's continuity, by purchasing a $15 electrical tester from Radio Shack. Simply put one end of the tester into the socket that plugs into the wand, and take the other end, and test the electrical prongs that go into the canister itself, you should be able to determine if your hose is bad by doing this.

If your model is an upright style, the repair is much easier. When the brushes don't spin on an upright, this just means that your belt has either broken, or fallen off. If you'd give me your model number, I can easily give you instructions with part numbers of the belt you'll need to buy. Please just send me an email with your model number, and I'll send you a blown up parts schematic to your vacuum by email.

Let me know if you have any other questions,
