Question about Vacuums
Am trying to gain access to the mains switch as the cable is inter-disc. and cuts off the power. Pnasonic Vacuum MC-E450UK trying to remove cover for access to switch.
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.

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.
