Re: how do you put the brush filter back in
They will only go in one way, there is a shaft that lines up with the turbine. If you look up where the brush block goes, you will see a square shaped hole for that shat to go in. If you are missing that shat, then it may have broke off.

remove a few screws and you will be able to pull out the brusher, usually it's the motor end of the drive belt blocked as well as the bushes each side of the brush, pull all the hairs and threads off then put back together
do not connect to electricity at this point claim a little work area put a blanket down as you are going to strip it all down into little bits clean and then put it all back,
Take apart power cable unwrap, unclip middle glass cylinder section to empty rubbish out, there should be a filter at the base that you can see now unclip clean put back, empty rubbish out of cylinder clean base and top rubber section and filter section with fine brush, use a wet cloth to wipe clean all black rubber suction connectors put back, at the back there will be a hose connector at the base unplug clean put back and make sure no debris is in any of the connectors and underneath where the floor brush is before you start puting it all back , Hope this helps
the rectangular and round ends are not intended to turn ..they stay fixed.. the bearing is inside the brush next to the round and rectangular ends .. if the ends dont move freely then there may be hair or string wound around the bearings .. clean that out so that things turn freely (the end may even come off) ... once you have things free and clean .. then putting the brush back in place does take some strength .. the belt gets very tight and its difficult but possible to get the rectangle inserted in its slot ..
THIS GEEN LIGHT MEANS THAT THE BELT HAS COME OFF. THE REPLACEMENT IS AS FOLLOWS: FLIP THE BRUSH (RUG RENOVATOR) OVER AND REMOVE THE SCREWS ON THE SILVER GUARD THAT KEEPS THE ROLLER IN PLACE. SLIDE THE ROLLER UP OUT OF THE SLOT, TAKING NOTE ON THE HALF MOON SHAPED SIDE. REMOVE THE OLD BELT(OR WHAT'S LEFT OF IT). PLACE THE BELT AROUND THE MOTOR SHAFT FIRST. THEN AROUND THE WOODEN BARE SPOT ON THE ROLLER. PUT THE ROUND(CIRCULAR) SIDE OF THE ROLLER IN FIRST, THEN CAREFULLY STRETCH THE ROLLER WHILE HOLDING IN THE ROUND SIDE IN ONE SIDE AND ROTATE THE ROLLER UNTILL THE HALF MOON LINES UP TO THE SLOT. PUSH IT DOWN INTO THE SLOT AND PUT THE ROLLER COVER BACK IN PLACE AND RE-INSTALL THE SCREWS. AND THERE YOU HAVE IT. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANK YOU FOR THE HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA.
Check for the front panel duct located on the lower tank front. this is the part you need to remove to attach the hose. also check to make sure the lid is on and secure on the lower tank. remove the lower tank and look on top of the motor cover toward the left front corner you should see a round black gasket on a pipe. if not there, this will cause poor suction.
There are a few things to check.
The Twin Bin model could have clogged filters, So you'll have to depress the button on the top and check that the first top filter isn't clogged, then check the removable black filter and check that it isn't clogged with dust. Once these have been removed ensure that the mesh filters are completely clear. Although Panasonic dont suggest it, you can wash the top grid white filter and the black filter but you must ensure that both are dry before installing them. Low temp tumble dry in a pillow case will get the sponges dry in around 10 to 20 minutes but dont use a high temp as the plastic grid will melt! The mesh filters can be cleaned using the on board upholstery brush. Failing that use a paint brush to dislodge any clogged dirt - the worst for cutting suction is the powdery greyish white powder which always clogs the mesh filters.
Then before putting everything back, take the bottom hose out of the front by unhooking it before putting the bin back on. Remove the sole plate and the whole tube should be able to come off although you may need to unscrew the holder at the soleplate area which holds the bottom hose to the bottom of the cleaner. Once that is done the entire hose should come off free and by sticking a blunt stick down this hose slowly, there may well be a clog.
This model and the rest of the Twin Bin series aren't particularly well designed. Ive had two models from Panasonic over the years, both of them being the Twin Bin design uprights (MCE 4003 and MCE 4103) which still have the same inherent problems of pick up when the filters or hose gets blocked. The beauty of the Panasonic however is that the hose handle can be removed by pushing in the lugs and getting around the machine for maintenance is easy but time consuming.
Remember that you do have two drive belts on this machine so make sure the motor pulley belt to the drive belt is secure.
Hope that helps!
Could be plugged, check the hose and at the bottom by the brush roll, the inlet maybe clogged. Also check the filter under neath the dirt tank. There are filters above the dirt container, clean those out. If after that it is still loud, then maybe the motor fan or bearins are bad and will have to be replaced, part #2031214 sells for around $55.
