Question about Panasonic MC-V7600 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

2 Answers

Panasonic Stow'n'Go, model MC-V5481

This vacuum does not pick up well at all. And now when I start it up there is an opening on the back with a seal or something that breaks loose amking a loud hissing (airleak) type noise while running the vacuum. When I shut it off the hole seals once again and the vacuum sounds normal for just that moment. If you use the hose only there is major suction. Why doesn't the rest of the vacuum work like this or does it have something to do with the hole that seems to promote a leaking sound. This vacuum is realatively new, well taken care of and is destined to be the last Panasonic I purchase if I can't get these problewms solved. Thanks so much.

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.

DC25 vacuum not picking up just moving dirt around. Hose stretched to max to get suction. What could problem be?


Check filter on canister. It's on top. Might be full. Also make sure the one for the hose door at the back, sometimes it breaks so it will be open. You can manually close it if it's broken.

My Miele S3141 canister began acting strange this morning. No suction...so I took off the hose and checked for blockage, (nothing). Now I can't get the hose back on the canister. It just slips ar


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Air filter:
If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.


Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

They're very robust you know, if its an upright, start with the screws at the bottem plate unless there's aa way of accessing the cable from the handle, on a cylinder just undo the hefty Philips screws, i don,t think you need a manual, just keep it all tidy and set out your parts on a nice best table cloth in order of removel, wish i was there with you Joe, good luck , the Yeti

Vacum will not pick up


Due to the way carpets are made - new carpets sometimes have a lot of loose fiber. This is NORMAL and it may take 3-5 times to vacuum the carpet till it goes back to normal. Spitting out fuzz balls is a bit weird. Make sure you have the belt installed right - see video on www.goodvac.com. but the fact that belts keep breaking I am assuming that you have them installed right. Give it a few more belts and if the problem presists - let me know.

Cleaning Solution leaks out around bottom


Most likely the opening under the seal has cracked or is starting to break away. You will have to replace the water bucket, the soap dispenser come with it, not separately.

Hose not picking up


Hi MightyHeidi,

 

About once every 9 months to a year, I have to take the hole Cleanview apart and thoroughly clean filters and get all the trash and string from the roller Brush.  I was the cleanview buckets out and rinse the filters untill i get no more mud flowing.  ThenI let it dry for a day or two. Put it all back together.  About once every 3 years, you may want to do a full disassembly to get to the Check valve at the intake of the Blower Motor.  i found mine stuck open and causing me to loose vacuum.

Usually when it won't pick up water is because the bucket isn't seating all of the way down. Or there is a window gasket or seal, it goes bertween the clear window and the bucket, if it is missing, yiu get no suction thru that clear window. The other is on the one side of the lid for the bucket is a filter, is it clean? And the seal that that filter sits on, is it sealing? If the moror is running, it is sucking, but any leak will cause it to loose that suction.
