Call 1-800-555-1212, this is a toll free business listing, ask them for the Company's name. When you get a hold of the company, give them the Model & Serial #. They may send a free one, depending if it is a year or less old. FYI; some businesses don't have toll free numbers, but most do. If you still have your Owner's Manuel, the # should be on there, as well as your Model #. Hope this helps!

Why is pet hair not getting into canister?


this is just a suggestion. I would take off the hose and if you can't see through it if not try pushing a broom handle through it. pet hair is the worst enemy of a vacuum sweeper I know from experience so I opt to try to hand sweep as much as possible.
not only will it clog a hose but it gets into the beater brush and ruins the bearings on the end caps causing you to have to either try to clean it out or purchase a new one.
whichever the case, good luck it is worth a shot to save some money.

Power head not working


Steve:


The terminals for the power head plug into a terminal inside the machine. You'll need to unplug the machine from the wall and open the canister to find where the terminal wires plug into. You probably need to open the lower half of the canister to find those terminal plugs. It would help if you have a multimeter. The wires actually run through the hose, so I would check the hose carefully to see if the wires have been damaged there.

Beater bar lost power - even after pushing reset button


Hi There,

If you've already tried resetting the power brush, and it still won't come on, this indicates that your electrical hose has most likely gone bad, and needs to be replaced.

This is actually a pretty common problem on Panasonic canisters, as well as Kenmore canisters (Panasonic makes Kenmore canisters).

In order to confirm this, what you'll need to do is purchase a simple electrical tester from Home Depot, or Lowes, and test the hose to make sure you have power making it through the hose.

To test this, remove the hose from the wand so you just have the handle of the hose in your hand with nothing attached to it. Put both ends of the electrical tester into the two female receptacles that plug into the wand, turn the machine on, and make sure that your hose is set to the carpet setting.

You definitely should have power coming to the hose at this part. If there is no power getting her, this indicates that your hose has gone bad. You may also just purchase a new hose (see link below), and if for any reason this doesn't fix your problem, you may return the hose to us within 60 days for a full 100% refund.

If the hose does have power at the end of it, repeat the process with the wand attached to the hose, but not connected to the power nozzle. If you have power getting to the hose, but not the wand, this indicates your wand has gone bad and need to be replaced. If you have power to your wand and hose, this probably indicates that the cord in the neck of the power nozzle has gone bad. Inspect the wire in the neck of the nozzle and see if you see any burning, or discoloration in on the male prongs.

I'm pretty sure that you'll just need to replace the hose, this is by far the most common problem on Panasonic canisters.

There are two different styles of hoses for Panasonic canisters. In order to find out which one is yours, remove the hose from the canister itself. Where the hose cuff plugs into the canister portion, look at the electrical prongs. There is either a 2 prong hose, or 3 prong hose. Here are links to both of the hoses. If your hose is a 3 position hose with a setting for bare floors, and carpets, then you have the 3 prong hose.

If this didn't fix your problem, please just use the comment section on this repair page and let me know what the outcome was after testing it with the electrical tester, and I'll be more then happy to try and do some more advanced diagnosing with you.

I hope this was helpful to you. If you found this helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave feedback for me, this is really what keeps Fixya repair experts answering free questions, rather then just the premium questions that we get paid for. This is greatly appreciated.

The power head has developed an intermittent, but frequent, electrical short. Is there an easy way to assess where? Or is this a matter for a repair shop.


Greetings,

A majority of the time when this happens, it's caused by the hose having a short in it. You'll need to first identify what the source of the short it. To do this, turn the power brush on, and then swivel the hose on both the end before the handle, as well as the end that plugs into the vacuum, can you get the power brush to cut on/off for you from here? If yes, then you'll need to purchase a new hose. You may purchase this hose directly from Sears, however when you buy the hoses through Sears you have to assemble the hose yourself, which is very challenging. An easier way for you to replace the hose, is to purchase a Panasonic canister hose. There are two types of hoses, a 2 wire hose, and a 3 wire hose that fit most Kenmores. When you take the hose out of the canister, look on the part that plugs into the canister, how many prongs do you see here? If 2 then you'll need a 2 wire hose, if 3 then a 3 wire hose.

If you are not able to locate the short in the hose, then you may have a short either in the wand, or the power nozzle neck wire. For the wand, put one foot on your power nozzle while it's running, then pull up and down on the end of the wand that plugs into the canister, as well as the end that the hose plugs into. If you can get the vacuum power brush to cut on / off when you're doing this, this indicates your wand is bad and needs to be replaced. If it doesn't cut on / off, remove the wand and hose from the vacuum completely. Now look where the wand connects into the power nozzle. You should see two electrical prongs on the neck of the power nozzle. Do you see any burns, or black marks on the prong, or the plastic part that it comes out of? You can also test this part by turning the vacuum's neck to the left and to the right as if you were turning the vacuum.

Hopefully this helped you. If you need further help on figuring out which part is bad, please just use the clarification request here on Fixya, and I'll be happy to try and diagnose this further with you.

Thanks,

Chris J.

I just purchased a tune up kit for my filter queen, how do I replace the dome cap pad? I can see it but I dont know how to get to it.


I was trying to replace the silencer filter, we had to take the dome cap off and remove the screws by the sn plate then lift the top off. It looks like the motor has been replaced at some point (I purchased this one used) so the wires had wire nuts holding them together. We had to separate the wires for the light so we could remove the old filter and install the new one.

It sounds like you have a blockage either in your hose or the carpet sweeper. Try dropping a coin through the hose. If it comes out then check the sweeper.
