Panasonic MC-E 450UK upright vacuum cleaner.
Just had this problem myself...........easy to get at it when you know how.
Panasonic UK wouldn't help me so I spent some time working it out..........here it is.
Remove the hose from its mounting storage at the rear (called hose clip) where the main body of the vacuum cleaner meets the base of the handle assembly. Remove the screw at the rear of the handle assembly which is behind where the hose 'was' situated and is located inside the deep recess.
Using the soft part of your clenched hand as a hammer, knock the base of the handle assembly at the front and it will slide backwards off the main body of the vacuum cleaner. Don't be scared, give it a thump and keep moving it backwards with a few more knocks.
Next remove the two screws at the front which hold the mains cable and on/off switch cover in place.
Finally looking from the rear once more, lift the plastic 'lug' at the top of the cover and which is part of the cover. This will now allow you to release the cover and pull it forward.
There you go! Told you it was easy!
Watch out for the funny little spring at the front behind the cover in the tiny plastic tube where it connects to the small rubber tubing as it could possibly try to escape.
You now have complete access in order to cut the intermittent part of the cable out and remove it from the 'choc' block.
Happy fixing!!
Jack.

Trying to remove the cover to access the switch is most of the vacuums you can access the motor assm that is connected to the switch by un-screwing the cover to access the switch, or to check to see if the are clips that are holding the item, or contact the website for Panasonic.com and ask for a schematic of the vacuum and that will give you and exploded view of the way the vacuum is put together and by that you can see how to replace the switch.

Hi, I have Pnasonic Vacuum cleaner MC-7650 -2000W,while working machine stops its own.I tried all the way ,all in vain


If it operates less than 15 minutes suspect the filter is blocked and that will cause the motor to heat triggering shut off.

l have seen this and the filter may be washable or not.

Panasonic vacuum cleaner MC-5030 stopped and don't work


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.

Panasonic MC-CL673 vacuum is not getting up to speed and smells


Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gif because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar. This is causing the smell (burning rubber). I don't believe it is your motor. :-)

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!

Removing cover to motor


You will have to access the motor by removing the entire bottom brush housing and tilting the vac motor shaft out of the housing. Once released you will have a main body and brush housing.
There are visible motor housing screws in the lower portion of the main housing and if I recall there may be twoscrews inside the bag chamber as well

Won't come on


Sorry, but the direct answer to your question is: no, there is no reset switch on this machine. What you do next depends to some extent upon what part of the world you are in. You should check that there is power to the electrical socket you are using (plug something else in and try it). If you are in the UK you should check the fuse in the plug (if this has blown you will need to find out why). Quite often the problem is simply a break in the cable. Beyond that you will probably need professional hands-on help.
