Panasonic MC-V7395 Belt overheating/snapping

I just changed the belt on this vacuum because it had snapped. After replacing the belt and turning on the machine, it overheated and melted the new belt within 15 seconds. What is causing this and is there any way to repair it? This vacuum is 10 years old, but was still working great!

Re: panasonic MC-V7395 Belt overheating/snapping

I have the same problem. I keep thinking I have fixed it, but then another belt breaks. I only have the issue when the roller is disengaged. (on bare floor setting). I did find that the unit was slipping back into engaged slowly, because the disengage mechanizim was not kathing prperly,. Tightened up a screw, and now appears to hold, but somehow the belt still get broken - I beleave it is an issue that the belt is not staying away from the drive when it is disengaged.

With a belt on, make sure that the motor spindle is sitting straight and not being pulled down towars the brush roll. If it is then hte motor cover will have to be replaced, which may not be available anymore. Another is make sure that the brush roll spins freely and not froze up. Also make sure that where the brush roll sits in the slots, that it hasn't over heated there and damaged the noozle.

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.

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.

Vacuum smells like burning rubber when on, no suction, leaving black marks on carpet

Usually when my vacuum smells like burning rubber, the belt needs to be changed and that is very easy to do. You just need to remove the the screws that hold in the rotator and put in a new belt. When the belt needs to be changed the vacuum will not pick up anything and this could make it seem like there is no suction. I hope this helps!

Belt constantly snapping

Make certain the belt is twisted the correct direction and that the brush is free to rotate. If the belt is twisted the wrong way it will probably come off or breake
