Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

Panasonic MC-V5258 Upright has been turning off after about 5 minutes of use for several months. It has been taken into the shop where it was bought at least one time and evidently it wasn't fixed. I think the warranty is out. I paid $438.00 for it! Linda in San Antonio Texas

Lind a, I don't recall if this unit has an overheat sensor. Try it again and if it shuts off see if the vac feels very hot, but do not touch the switch, leave it in the on position, to cool down. When a vac overheats it will generally restart on its own in about 20 minutes if it has a heat sensor on the motor.
If your vac restarts, you either have a defective sensor or a blockage in the hose or filter area causing the motor to overheat.
If it does not restart your problem is electrical, sticking carbon brush on motor, bad cord, etc.

HOW TO CHANGE A BELT ON A MC-V7305


Make sure vacuum is unplugged. Lay. Vacuum upside down and remove Bottom plate. Pull brushroll from nozzle housing, pull metal end caps from brush and remove any hair and debris. Put new belt around motor shaft then around brushroll. Put one hand on each side of belt and pull brushroll to stretch belt far enough to drop brushroll into position. Make sure brush spins freely. Install bottom plate. Make sure brushroll turns freely, if not, make sure bottom plate is not restricting the belt before you turn the vacuum on. Repeat the process in 6 months. You may be surprised to see how much a belt stretches and loses elasticity after it's been on your vacuum for 6 months.

Any Vacuum shop should have this, and depending where you live, canadian tire, walmart, target, Sears should have the belt.

If your not close to any of those places, let me know and I will try to help out better.

Panasonic upright vacuum MC-E458


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