Re: not enough suction for Panasonic MC-V5716 upright
Probably not the motor protector, its function is shut off the motor if it overheats. Most likely you have a clog or partial clog in the inlet down by the brush roll, or it is in the hose. But if the motor is running, and suction is low, with no clogs, then maybe the motor is running at a slower speed and will have to be replaced.

The first thing to check is make sure the belt is not broken or stretched. It is possible that a vacuum cleaner may need a new belt even if you just bought it. It may have been a year or more since it was assembled and had the belt installed. It may have spent some time in a warehouse and on the store shelf before making it to your home so the first thing to check is always the belt. If it has a stretch belt they must be stretched to almost twice their original length when installed on your vacuum and they lose elasticity. The rule of thumb in the vacuum industry is belts should be changed every three months for proper agitation. If the belt is not broken or stretched check to see if there may be something stuck in there preventing the brush roll from spinning freely.
The brush on this model is controlled by the on/carpet/floor switch and will only work in the carpet position. If the suction motor is running then it could be the roller brush motor, but it's more likely to be the microswitch which stops the brush motor when the handle is returned to the upright position.
Sounds like the belt should be replaced. It maybe turning the brush, but if you smell burning rubber, its slipping and not turning the brush with as much force as it should. Changed the belt. Check the air suction path. If the suction is reduced, something is blocking it. Check the bag (if it has one) and all filters. If the machine picks up any liquid, it will reduce the air flow through the filters and bag. Change the bag and filters. If this is an upright, you may find caked on dirt under or in the area of the brush.
Is the noise coming from the belt area, ie. beater bar, or does it sound like it is coming from the motor itself? It is possible there is something caught in the brush roller. When you turn the roller off, does the noise go away?
Hi there. In Panasonic vacuums, there is a thermostat protection on the motor. It will automatically shut off the motor if there is no airflow through the motor. This is typically caused by a clogged hose. Typically, if your dust container is that full, there could be backup in the hose. Or the dust container being too full could also or otherwise be the problem. Check your hose for blockage, let the machine cool off, it should start up again
sounds like the motor might have bit the dust.try this,unplug the vacuum and reach under where the brush rolle is and try to turn the roller by hand a few times,if you can't turnit then then the roller is jammed.take the belt off and then turn it on and see if it runs then.let the motor cool down first the motorguard might be keeping it from running.just let it cool down for about 20 minutes then try it
Did you check the dirt inlet by the brush roll, filters ok, they should be replaced once a year. Belts can look fine, but if they are a few months old, I am sure they have stretched and the brush roll will not turn like it should under load. It is possible that the motor isn't running up to speed, thereby reducing suction.
