What can I do to fix Panasonic vacuum MC-V7395 that will not stay locked in upright position?


Most vacuums have plastic tabs and a plastic mechanism of some sort to that will engage those tabs to make it stay upright.
I am suggesting either the tabs are worn down, or are broken off, or maybe the locking mechanism is broken.
These parts are most often not replaceable, unless you can find an identical machine with these still good on it, and swap whatever parts are necessary to fix it.
Machine is a "throwaway " model.
When it breaks, you are expected to buy a new one.
God bless your efforts.

Why did the agitator stop?


Bryan,
Most of the time, when a brush stops, you either have a broken belt or there is something wrong with the brush. If the brush spins very freely when you try spinning it by hand, you have a broken belt.

How to tighten Oreck XL upright position to stay upright


The detent that is mounted to the inside of the housing is probably broken off and the only way to get that fixed is to replace the housing. If you have been getting regular tune ups at a service center there may be the possibility of getting that done under warranty depending on how old your vacuum is and how long the warranty period is for that vacuum.

Vacuum won't stay in the upright position


I believe you have a broken handle release pedal. It make look intact, but if you turn it over and look where the lever is fastened to the body, it should protrude out another inch to an inch and a half. If you don't see this, then the plastic "spring" part of the lever has broken off; this is what forces the lever to stay up. the part for the Helix should be # 203-2463 and should be under $10.

Xl2600hhvacuum won't stand alone anymore, what is broken, is it a spring or some kind of catch missing


The detent that is mounted to the inside of the base cover is not working either because the screw holding has broken off or it is worn out. You could also have a worn out fan housing since that is what the detent catches to make it stand up. If the screw is broken off the only way to repair it is to replace the housing. Hope this helps.

Vacuum won't stay on. When I push the button to start it, the motor shuts off as soon as I let go of the button.


You have a broken switch (replace) or hopefully something caught under the switch. Regards Billy

Eureka 5841 Upright Vacuum Handle will not latch to stay upright


The pedal is probably broken or stuck. You should be able to see where it catches when you stand it upright and determine why it won't catch.

SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub won't stay upright or collect water


(1) Upright: Sounds like the tab on the lower handle that the handel release latches to has broken off. The machine is fully functional without it otherwise.

(2) Assure the ring gasket is in place under the hood. A round rubber gasket must be in place on the round tube under the hood where the recovery tank sits to connect the vacuum from the motor to the round tube on the bottom of the tank.

Upright lock broken

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Not knowing the brand name and the model # it sounds to me that you have a broken handle release if that is what you are referring to as “Upright Lock Broken” – the handle release lever keeps the hand staying up and in the upright position. So include @ least the brand name and or the model # and I can try to further assist you. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
