Panasonic mc 6220

To open a Panasonic MC 6220, pull quite firmly (but not enough to break it) on the vertical wine molded handle on the front of the vacuum cleaner. It sits between the 3 power selections buttons, and the window that shows how full the bag is. It takes a U3 bag - remove the orange/red mounting bracket from the wall of the vacuum, and then from the bag itself. Make sure you mount it properly on both (and the bottom of the bag so it fills completely) to avoid any dust leaking out. Good luck! This is a fabulous vacuum and lasts a long time, if you maintain it.

I have a philips marathon fc 9202 vacuum cleaner. it has worked fine for a number of years but suddenly has no power. what can i check to diagnose the problem?

I finally found the root cause - Applies for FC9225, but may also solve other types of the same family.
The problem is the switch for the dustbox (not sure if the hinge is worn or the sensor (contactless switch) has another issue). Removing this safety switch (allowing you to switch on the vacuum cleaner without dustbox and filter cartridge properly installed, which I judge not a major 'risk'), permanently solved the issue, 1. Remove the lid 2. Remove the big sealing ring on the bottom of the lid 3. Pull the cantilever switch out (and dispose ;-) ) 4. Re-assemble 5. Fixed the problem in my case
(check 4 last images I added)

For your entertainment: I also filled the connector at lid side with glue gun glue, de-soldered all capacitors and measured them, completely dismantled the motor, pulled the brushes and cleaned the commutator... to find it was just the ****** switch...

We had similar issues (all power level lights start flashing when connecting). We could extend lifetime by electric contact spray. But also this stopped working at some point. Today I finally dismantled. Tip 1: to remove the lid, just push the 2 plastic covers outward at the hinge (no need to dismantle the lid) and push out the shaft.Tip 2: when dismantling main body, unscrew the small wheel below the 'dirt box' (OPPOSITE DIRECTION = CLOCKWISE TO LOOSEN). Tip 3: only dismantle the main plastic cover by loosening all screws.
Then dismantle the main body connector, remove the rubber block at the backside of the connector, make sure the 4 wires are as deep as possible in the connector, fill the connector with glue gun and put a tie rap to keep 4 wires together.
If you want to dismantle the connector, you need to push inside the 4 small latches near each wire, BE CAREFUL NOT TO ROTATE THE INNER OF THE CONNECTOR 180DEG WHEN RE-ASSEMBLING (there is no poko-yoko to avoid this).
I added some pictures to hopefully make things a bit more clear.

Power Cable wires exposed where it enters handle

Part of your question has been cut off by the FixYa system, but I guess you say the wires are exposed where the flex enters the handle. To dismantle the handle, first remove the handle from the machine and, of course, be sure the flex is not plugged in to the mains power.
Look on the back of the handle - you will see a small screw. Undo that screw and remove it, then you will be able to pull the plastic part of the handle out from the metal part. NOTE: it does not come very far out - just far enough so you can separate the two halves of the plastic part. When you've done that, it's only a matter of removing the damaged part of the flex (noting how the wires are routed inside the handle), stripping the remaining flex to match the bit you've removed, and wiring it in. Fit the two plastic halves together again (one hooks into the other at the top), push them down into the metal part and refit the screw. Job done!
If you need more help, just post a reply here and I'll get back to you soon. Good luck!

Panasonic Vacuum MC-E450UK

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 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.
Happy fixing!!

Electric cord

You did not say which model you have, but if upright, most cords went in on the upper part of the handle and you need to take it apart to do that.
