Question about Panasonic MC-V7600 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

2 Answers

Panasonic Stow'n'Go, model MC-V5481

This vacuum does not pick up well at all. And now when I start it up there is an opening on the back with a seal or something that breaks loose amking a loud hissing (airleak) type noise while running the vacuum. When I shut it off the hole seals once again and the vacuum sounds normal for just that moment. If you use the hose only there is major suction. Why doesn't the rest of the vacuum work like this or does it have something to do with the hole that seems to promote a leaking sound. This vacuum is realatively new, well taken care of and is destined to be the last Panasonic I purchase if I can't get these problewms solved. Thanks so much.

Thank you so much. It was clogged in that area.

If you turn the vacuum over, you will see a hose by the brushroll. I think your problem is that it's stopped up right there. Take off the brushroll and make sure that the hose isn't stopped up. The port at the back that makes a hissing sound is to indicate that it's stopped up somewhere. Also, when you replace your attachment hose back onto the machine, does the motor change sound?? That's also another indication that your machine is stopped up. Don't lose hope for the Panasonic, they're great machines. If you still need help, you may call us at 1-866-509-1952. Thanks.

Belt is melting or burning not sure why

It doesn't matter what or why. Use your owners manual and it will show you how to change the belt. When you open it up whatever is hanging the brush roller up will either show itself or when you remove the brush roller it will fall out. Change the belt. That smell is the motor shaft slipping past the belt and burning it with friction. Either way the belt will need changing if it's had that much wear on it.

Suddenly stopped running in the middle of vacuuming a room. Tried another outlet and still no power.

You have to go to the electrical panel that serves your home or apartment and locate the fuse that is blown [ if there are fuses, replace the blown one with a new one of the same amperage] or the circuit breaker which has kicked part way off. With a circuit breaker you have to turn it all the way off and then back on in order to reset it.

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

Hose stopped up

If the hose comes off, you can push something thru to help break it up. You also use a plumber's snake to grap ahold of what is in the hose and pull it out.
