Re: hose fell off
The hose attaches to this plastic piece leads to the part where the dirt goes. see the pitchure
Turn the knob to the water only, put the piston on the bottom of the knob then turn it slightly so it doesn't fall off, Start to put the cover on, when it is straight, turn the knob to the water only selection and push the top all the way down. The piston should have gone into the hole and the knob should turn easily.

Sounds like the exhaust side is clogged. Remember a vacuum pulls air into the cavity, but for it to work properly it also has to be able to exhaust the same amount of air it takes in. If the exhaust is blocked it will continue to suck air inside and collapse on itself, which is why your hoses are getting shorter and harder to move. Check the exhaust system for any blockages, perhaps the hole you taped was the exhaust.
I had the same problem with my Kompressor.Initially I had cleaned all three removable filters.There is two in the canister that can be washed with dish soap. The HEPA filter is located in a compartment on the lower front side of the vacuum.This HEPA filter should not be washed.I found that tapping it inside a trash can dislodged alot of dust from it. After cleaning all the filters and canister I was having the same hissing noise coming from a small hole near the bottom of the vacuum. Next I removed a hose fitting on the lower back of the vacuum and that is where I found a very large amount of debris clogging up the hose. I used a metal coat
Did you change the filter cone? Clogged pores can and do inhibit airflow. Bent fan blades can be another problem. Holes, slits, and cracks, no matter how small, in the hose can result in reduced suction.
And you should NEVER run water through a hose that contains electrical wiring, which I suspect yours does.
This is an easy fix you do not have to fully remove transmission it does help to lower it down by removing screws. Then try to get the right angle and realign the splines I have fixed mine twice, the second time I put thread locker on it and have not had any problem. Steve
If you turn the vacuum over, you will see a hose by the brushroll. I think your problem is that it's stopped up right there. Take off the brushroll and make sure that the hose isn't stopped up. The port at the back that makes a hissing sound is to indicate that it's stopped up somewhere. Also, when you replace your attachment hose back onto the machine, does the motor change sound?? That's also another indication that your machine is stopped up. Don't lose hope for the Panasonic, they're great machines. If you still need help, you may call us at 1-866-509-1952. Thanks.
usually these hoses are glued into the collar, and the only real way to re-use them is to carve the hose/glue out of the collar by hand with a chisel. some will screw out with enough force, but dont break the collars trying. If there is glue it is probably a long shot but you could try some acetone (dont get it on your skin - it is very nasty and absorbs through) - try a little on the plastic first and wait overnight to check that the plastic itself will not be affected, then see if the glue will dissolve out of the join - probably not with the type of glue probably used. Another possibility is that the whole hose and collar are moulded as one piece - if so take it to a workshop with a lathe and get them to try and lathe holes in the collar part for a hose.
Sears have proven to be next to useless when it comes to spares, so i would suggest try and find a vacuum repair shop locally and just see if they have a hose that fits hanging about.
Hope this helps - please post again if not with a photo - might make it clearer?
