SOURCE: Suction loss when handle is tipped back to clean carpet

Ours did the same thing. I cleaned the filter and canister thoroughly. It needed to be cleaned, but that didn't fix the problem. I removed the plate under the carpet brush bar (three quarter-turn screws) and removed all hair, lint and threads from the rollers and brush. THEN my husband found the real problem: a piece of flexible hose running from the head into the hose (on the left side when behind the vacuum) was completely clogged. The hose will detach from the head, and you can remove debris. Once that clog was removed, the hose easily re-attaches, and we had great suction once again.

SOURCE: Dont know how to hook up the carpet cleaning part of the vacuum

You have to have the Aquamate II shampoo attachment in order to clean/shampoo your carpet. Go to the Rainbow website and you can purchase it if you don't already have one - if you do have one, this site also has simple directions on how to set up the Aquamate to shampoo your carpet.

SOURCE: Lever & belt placement in Kenmore Progressive upright vacuum

You are correct. The belt is supposed to go around the peg that is connected to the lever so that when it is on the Floor /Tools setting the belt is not driven by the drive shaft.

That means that you need to replace the belt. Here is the belt you need to replace and the manual which has instructions:

Detergent doesn't dispense.


Water will clean carpets but not very well. For the best results don't put any cleanser in your machine. Soap can clogged up the lines in your machine. When you have soap dispensed or or in the water in your machine you are squirting it onto the carpet and sucking it back up at the same time...the soap and water isn't on the carpet long enough to clean well unless you keep going over the same area many times. To clean better it's really important to vacuum thoroughly going slowly in multiple directions to get as much dry, gritty soil and hair and dust out as possible, it's easy to get these soils out when the carpet is dry if your vacuum is working properly. Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum.
Get a spray bottle or sprayer and put hot tap water in it, add the cleaning solution to the hot water and spray enough on the carpets to get the face fibers damp...let the hot water solution sit on the carpets 5 or 10 minutes and then use your machine to clean and rinse the soap, water and loosened soils from the carpet fibers. Repeat if necessary. Your carpets will be cleaner because you allowed adequate dwell time for the soap and water to work on the sticky greasy soils attached to the carpet fibers and stay clean longer because the soap is rinsed out of the carpets. Your carpet cleaning machine will last longer too because the water lines, pumps, spray jets, heaters, etc can't get clogged with soap gunk if you don't put soap in it. The method I'm describing is how the best professional carpet cleaners clean carpets. Hiring a quality carpet cleaner cost more up front but the carpets may stay clean two or three times longer, saving a lot of money in the long run. If you clean your carpets using this dual process method you may do a better job with a small portable home or rented cleaner than hiring the average carpet cleaning professional who is trying to give you the lowest price.

This is an easy fix you do not have to fully remove transmission it does help to lower it down by removing screws. Then try to get the right angle and realign the splines I have fixed mine twice, the second time I put thread locker on it and have not had any problem. Steve

Noise


Hi Linda,
Sounds like clutch problems, try to move the lever for carpet/floor back and forth a few times maybe it will free up. If it still makes the grinding noise, the clutch assembly will have to be replaced. Let me know, i can even walk you through the repair if needed.

I poured the water out and when i went to put lid back on its not sucking up the water and lid keeps moving around


The lid on the lower tank needs to have a tight seal, otherwise you will lose suction to the floor. make sure all latches are secure.

make sure the lever it the very back of the machine is in the on or drive position, make sure the height is up high enough ( the higher the better as long as it is still cleaning - lower is not better ) and change the belt even if it isn't broken they can stretch out in less then a year of use.

I have a Panasonic MC-V5746 upright vacuum. According to the booklet,
MAKE SURE UNIT IS UNPLUGGED.
1. Place carpet-bare floor selector in "carpet" position.
2. Remove lower plate (there are two screws in the middle of the lower plate), and a pair of locking tabs located near the wheels that you push toward the wheels.
3. Carefully pull agitator brush up and out and clean it.
4. Look new belt around the motor shaft (I had to turn the belt edgewise to get it back in there). On my unit, there are two shafts. Put it around the one furthest back and don't worry if it doesn't touch the other one.
5. Pull the other end of the belt and loop it around the "brush pulley" which is the narrow track on one end of the brush.
6. reinstall agitator back into nozzle housing grooves.
7. Turn the brush by hand to make sure it moves smoothly and isn't pinched or twisted.
8. Reinstall lower plate.
