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).

The power button quit working


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,
Chris Jones

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

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)

Vacuum is not self-propelling and no suction


Replace your rubber belt, it is what powers the self-propel mechanism.
Remove the 4 screws from the baseplate and replace the belt at the rear of the machine.

Panasonic Vacuum MC-E450UK


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.
