Sounds like a problem with the impeller. It is loose or broken. It is attached to the motor shaft.

Not sure what model of Hoover you have, you may need a new handle release.

If it won't pop back into the cradle that holds it in standing position, take off the entire hose and check for long items such as pens and pencils.

the inspection valve on the right hand side of the bucket ( standing at the rear) has come out of its housing.
If you can't sort - its under guarentee take it back where you bought it

This procedure should solve the problem. Before you start it, please make sure the machine is unplugged.

First, remove the airway inspection. It’s located at the side of your cleaner.

Next, hold the main body of the cleaner halfway between the floor and upright position. Then, place two fingers in the square hole left by the airway inspection (you should be able to see a round hole at the base) then pull that plastic piece sharply upwards. You should hear a click as you do so.

Your machine should now stand upright and you may also notice an improvement in the suction, too.

If this procedure hasn’t worked, please call our experts on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).


Many thanks

What can I do to fix Panasonic vacuum MC-V7395 that will not stay locked in upright position?


Most vacuums have plastic tabs and a plastic mechanism of some sort to that will engage those tabs to make it stay upright.
I am suggesting either the tabs are worn down, or are broken off, or maybe the locking mechanism is broken.
These parts are most often not replaceable, unless you can find an identical machine with these still good on it, and swap whatever parts are necessary to fix it.
Machine is a "throwaway " model.
When it breaks, you are expected to buy a new one.
God bless your efforts.

The brushes do not disengage when in upright position


Set the brush control, as needed. The brush control turns the brushbar on the underside of the vacuum on and off. The button is located beside the power button, on the top-front of the vacuum cleaner. Turn on the brush control for cleaning carpet. Turn off the brush control for bare floors or delicatelb_icon1.png rugs..

Two things; your bag may be too full and needs replaced. (it doesn't take much to make them top-heavy) or the pin at the back of the base of the handle is not extended.

Hoover model U6425-920 falls backward


It sounds like the handle release lever is bad if the unit will not stand up. It's common when those units get a little older. It is unlikely you'll need the rear handle assembly (the part with the filter housing) but it does happen. Inspect the latch on the handle assembly to make sure it's not too worn to know for sure. Chances are, the handle release lever is just spent.
Here's the part you're looking for:

As long as you're into it the belts and roller are always a great investment. Replacing them will make it clean like new again. I'll include the links for those parts as well.

Hi Kay,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC18. If the stabiliser doesn't seem to be locking the machine upright, I'd encourage you to get in touch with us directly, as we'd appreciate the opportunity to provide further assistance.

You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US) - it will be useful if you can have the machine to hand when you call.

Belt is melting or burning not sure why


It doesn't matter what or why. Use your owners manual and it will show you how to change the belt. When you open it up whatever is hanging the brush roller up will either show itself or when you remove the brush roller it will fall out. Change the belt. That smell is the motor shaft slipping past the belt and burning it with friction. Either way the belt will need changing if it's had that much wear on it.

My Bissell Pet Eraser brush only rotating on the bare floor setting, when on the pet setting, it won't rotate. What is the problem? Thanks.


it sounds like something is backwards. the brush should only rotate when using it on carpet, it should never rotate on the bare floors. check the belt for propper installation

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.
