Question about Panasonic Vacuums

Open Question

Panasonic mc-e4113 Upright vacuum. The belt that drives the brush in front is broken I have found a spare for this but there seems to be a pulley missing on the main drive shaft that the belt needs to fit on. I can't believe that there wouldn't be one? Can anyone tell me if this is the case and if so where I can get one from. Many thanks Sean

belt doesnt have to be broken, check the metal arm on the vacuum, see if there is build up of old rubber from previous belts, clean the arm that spins the belt and double check to make sure u have the correct belt

Most likely the brush motor is bad and not turning, part #2036757, would sell for around $23. To get to it, start taking out screws on the top cover, that motor is under the that top access cover.

Sounds like a problem with the impeller. It is loose or broken. It is attached to the motor shaft.

You got the second hardest part done; the hardest part is what you're asking about.
To get the new belt onto the drive shaft I used a long screwdriver for leverage and wrapped the end close to the shaft and with some elbow grease, got it to "slip" on to the shaft. It took a couple of tries, but once I overcame the fear of the belt breaking (because it has to stretch big time), I managed to get it one. Of course, the other end of the belt has to be wrapped around the roller first.
I found a link for a tech manual for this model, but it didn't help much....
good luck.

HOW TO CHANGE A BELT ON A MC-V7305


Make sure vacuum is unplugged. Lay. Vacuum upside down and remove Bottom plate. Pull brushroll from nozzle housing, pull metal end caps from brush and remove any hair and debris. Put new belt around motor shaft then around brushroll. Put one hand on each side of belt and pull brushroll to stretch belt far enough to drop brushroll into position. Make sure brush spins freely. Install bottom plate. Make sure brushroll turns freely, if not, make sure bottom plate is not restricting the belt before you turn the vacuum on. Repeat the process in 6 months. You may be surprised to see how much a belt stretches and loses elasticity after it's been on your vacuum for 6 months.

Panasonic ecomax carpet bar won't drive


The first thing to check is make sure the belt is not broken or stretched. It is possible that a vacuum cleaner may need a new belt even if you just bought it. It may have been a year or more since it was assembled and had the belt installed. It may have spent some time in a warehouse and on the store shelf before making it to your home so the first thing to check is always the belt. If it has a stretch belt they must be stretched to almost twice their original length when installed on your vacuum and they lose elasticity. The rule of thumb in the vacuum industry is belts should be changed every three months for proper agitation. If the belt is not broken or stretched check to see if there may be something stuck in there preventing the brush roll from spinning freely.

How do I change the belt on the 116 model?


To properly fix a belt on a Kenmore vacuum, you will first need to indicate whether this is an upright or a canister vacuum. The model given, 116, is only the first part of the model number, and all Kenmore vacuums, upright and canister style, start with 116. There is a period first, then a whole string of numbers, 116.255553 etc.

Kenmore vacuums are mainly made by Panasonic for Sears, and most will use a Panasonic belt. If the belt is an upright, this makes it simple, and will be a Panasonic "UB" belt.

For a canister vacuum, most models use what's referred to as a cogged belt. This type of belt has little teeth on the inside of the belt, and is Panasonic CB-5 belt.

Instructions on How to Replace the Belt for an Upright;
There will usually be to plastic screws on the top of the agitator housing on the base of the vacuum, that will say belt access. Simply take a flat head screw driver, and turn the screws so that the screw is pointing up and down on both sides. Then pull the plastic agitator housing, or the top of the base of the vacuum off. Inside you will see a the roller brush, and the belt (or broken belt). Simply take the new belt and wrap it around the silver pulley located in the back of the machine, opposite the roller brush, and wrap the other end of the belt through the roller brush. Stretch the roller brush back into the housing of the machine, and replace the top of the base of the vacuum back on the machine. You should give the belt a tug, to ensure that the brush is spinning when the belt is being pulled..

Change belt


To get to the brush roll, you have to take the bottom part. There is no belt, the brush roll motor is part of the brush roll.
