Generally, there are 'hidden' screws which are found under plastic plugs. Look for them. You may also find some screws on the opposite side of the plate holding the lead. Finally, sometimes the plate will slide up or down from its fixed position. I'm not familiar with your exact unit, however.

Panasonic optiflow upright vaccum


Hello, Put the vac on its side and remove the screws holding the cover plate on. This exposes the beater bar and belt on the side. Pull the beater bar out and take the belt off. Reverse this to put the belt back in place.

Unplug, check if brush has cord wrapped. Check for fuse, if applicable.
Check power lead in another supply socket. Check for reset button, if applicable. Contact Panasonic technical support for suggestions before heading to service centre.

Replace mains cable panasonic MC-e 468


No. Once you've removed the screw, the handle just slides off - either backwards or forwards (sorry I don't remember which, but it's obvious when you've got the machine in front of you).

Please click here to see the part diagram for the Hoover Windtunnel Self Propelled model U6446-900

Greetings from GoVacuum,

For replacing the switch, you need to remove the 2 screws that are in the back of the vacuum where the handle connects to the vacuum bag housing, Part # 50 on the first page of the diagram. After the screws have been removed, you may simply slide out the handle from the rest of the vacuum cleaner. You can then at this point view the outside of the switch, however as you'll find you can't replace it from this side. You'll then need to go into the where the tool caddy is in the front top part of the vacuum cleaner. Remove the attachments from the tool caddy, and then you'll need to remove the screws that hold the tool casing in place. Remove screws pictured # 35 on page 1, and the tool caddy is item # 17.

Once the screws and the tool caddy are removed, you may then see the rest of the switch, and the leads that connect to it. The easiest way to remove the screw is to use a flat head screwdriver and pry the switch out from the back of the vacuum cleaner after removing the leads from the switch. The new switch that you'll need to purchase is Hoover part number 28161067 which can be found online here: Hoover Windtunnel Main On / Off Switch Part Number 28161067.

I hope that this helps you replace the faulty switch in yours (and your parents) vacuum cleaners. If you need to place an order for the switch, please give us a call at 1-866-468-2288.

Thank you,

How to rewire a panasonic vacuum cleaner


Once you have taken the handle off and the front plastic cover below the handle at the front and above the bag/bucket holder, you gain access into the power cable and switch connections.
One wire will disconnect easily, the other won't, so instead of trying take this wire out of its connection where many others are from the switch and the motor, cut it on the mains lead before it enters the connection and reconnect the new mains lead wire with a **** or block connector, the other should connect normally with a spade connecter,making sure its will take the amperage of the v/cleaner
Hope this makes sense!

Filters for panasonic vacuum cleaner MC-E468


Hi! Sometimes really hard to remember which of these models is which, so please forgive me if this is not a complete solution.  I'm pretty sure you will find there are two filters.  The first is a foam filter, and is located at the bottom of the bag compartment.  It pulls out to the front, and is washable (of course it must be completely dry before re-use).  The second (and here I'm on less secure ground) is a HEPA filter, and is located behind a removable panel on the front of the bag compartment door.  The HEPA filter is not washable, but rarely if ever needs to be changed unless the machine has been used for vacuuming a lot of extremely fine dust. I hope this helps, and I value your feedback. Please remember to rate my response.  Good luck!

Hi I’ve got a Panasonic vacuum cleaner MC E468 1600W a few years old now but works well up to recent problem. Not picking up I checked the obvious things and found excessive air being sucked in around...


The hose on the back might be loose - check to see that the hose is not obstructing anything where it screws in at the back - or indeed the screws may be loose themselves; some of the MCE 468 models had an additional ring washer that sits between the hose and the body at the rear. Usually inside the machine where the bag is, there will be a gasket that fits over the hole of the dust channel leading from the dust bag - if this has come away then its a possible reason to why the suction is poor or excess suction coming off the back of the hose. If however the brush roll has stopped, it may well be that reason alone to why its not picking up as well so you should check the sole plate too as there may be some clogging or the motor pulley belt has snapped. Contact Panasonic UK customer services as they may well have the part for your machine. (http://www.panasonic.co.uk/html/en_GB/544169/index.html)

Cleaner will not come out of dispenser when handle is pressed.


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

It seems that you may have a bad pump. If you'd please give me the model number of the Bissell, I can give you the parts schematic so you can see how it's taken apart. We'd be happy to help you in explaining how to replace the pump should you have any questions.

It does not ****


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

It sounds like you have a clog in the vacuum cleaner somewhere. What you can do is remove the hose from the back of the vacuum cleaner and see if the changes the bag full indicator, and pay attention to the sound of the motor. If the motor starts making a high pitch sound as soon as your install the hose, this means that there is a clog somewhere in the hose.

If you can give me your model number, I can send you a parts schematic to your vacuum cleaner.

Thanks,
