Please stop using the mop before you have the thing catch on fire, or even your house/apartment.
What may have happened is the steam/water may have gotten in to the motor some how and is shorting it out.
If no burning or smelling, maybe nothing to do with motor, and if caused by the safety cut-out, it will need about an hour to cool down, and then check filter, bag, and drop coin through hose, pipes and the floor tool, to check for blockages and to stop it running hot. Damaged cable, worn carbon brushes, broken electrical rewind electrical contacts or even the printed circuit board (later models) are the most likely causes.
Hello, It sounds like your vacuum is fine if it works when plugged in the kitchen outlet. It is tripping the breaker switch in the other room because the circuit is overloaded (too many things plugged in this circuit). Try unplugging some things in that room and try your vacuum again. If it only trips when using one particular outlet, then the outlet should be replaced. I would recommend having an electrician check your wiring out.
Once you have taken the handle off and the front plastic cover below the handle at the front and above the bag/bucket holder, you gain access into the power cable and switch connections.
One wire will disconnect easily, the other won't, so instead of trying take this wire out of its connection where many others are from the switch and the motor, cut it on the mains lead before it enters the connection and reconnect the new mains lead wire with a **** or block connector, the other should connect normally with a spade connecter,making sure its will take the amperage of the v/cleaner
Hope this makes sense!
When the main trip cuts out it indicates current leaking to earth within the guilty machine. In machines that combine electricity and water in close proximity (like yours) this problem is almost always caused by some electrical component getting wet. I'm not familiar with this particular machine, but doubt if there are any user-serviceable parts. If there are any covers you can remove easily, you might try just exposing the innards and make sure they are dry. If you can get inside, a gentle blow with a hair dryer might help.
As for repair centres, what part of the UK are you in? The place where I work is in south Oxfordshire, and we're always happy to have a look at problems like this... but no guarantee at this time, of course!
Try the reset drive belt brush button - you'll find it underneath the main power switch on the handle. Also check the brush isn't clogged, by the sole plate by tipping it over and undoing the screws on the bottom place where the beater bar is.
Hello jb1720.. Here is a link to the users manual... they do not identify the internal electrical components within your vacuum but they do provide contact information ( phone numbers etc). In all probability, you are correct in your assessment that you have an open thermal fuse ( probably non-resettable) in series with your electrical supply line. If you have a local appliance repair place near you, I would take the part with you and see if they have a replacement readily available ( which they probably will).. That may be the fastes way to get one.. Or.. you can use the contact info above to speak with a rep from Eureka.. Hope this helps you..
Panasonic MC-E 450UK upright vacuum cleaner.
Just had this problem myself...........easy to get at it when you know how.
Panasonic UK wouldn't help me so I spent some time working it out..........here it is.
Remove the hose from its mounting storage at the rear (called hose clip) where the main body of the vacuum cleaner meets the base of the handle assembly. Remove the screw at the rear of the handle assembly which is behind where the hose 'was' situated and is located inside the deep recess.
Using the soft part of your clenched hand as a hammer, knock the base of the handle assembly at the front and it will slide backwards off the main body of the vacuum cleaner. Don't be scared, give it a thump and keep moving it backwards with a few more knocks.
Next remove the two screws at the front which hold the mains cable and on/off switch cover in place.
Finally looking from the rear once more, lift the plastic 'lug' at the top of the cover and which is part of the cover. This will now allow you to release the cover and pull it forward.
There you go! Told you it was easy!
Watch out for the funny little spring at the front behind the cover in the tiny plastic tube where it connects to the small rubber tubing as it could possibly try to escape.
You now have complete access in order to cut the intermittent part of the cable out and remove it from the 'choc' block.
