If you have a problem with your Panasonic vacuum, you can perform some troubleshooting as a way to resolve the issue before having to spend the money taking it to a repair facility.
Things You'll Need
- Vacuum bag
- Mild dish detergent
Check that all parts of the Panasonic vacuum cleaner are properly installed. The bag, hose and dust cover should all lock firmly in place.
Change the Panasonic vacuum's bag. A clogged or full bag can cause the vacuum to malfunction. You can purchase new Panasonic vacuum cleaner bags from retailers like Target and Walmart (make sure to write down your exact model number so that you buy the correct replacement bag). To change the bag, remove the dust cover and pull out the bag by grabbing the cardboard portion at the top. Line up the new bag with the tabs at the top of the canister and replace the dust cover.
Remove any dirt and debris from the vacuum cleaner belt. Use a rag with mild dish detergent and water to clean the belt. Dry the belt after you have finished cleaning it.
Clean the hose and nozzle of the Panasonic vacuum. Clogged hoses and nozzles can cause the vacuum cleaner to have difficulty picking up dirt. Take a cloth and run it through the openings. You can also blow compressed air through the hoses to get rid of any dirt buildup.
Replace the vacuum cleaner belt. Unscrew the lower plate of the vacuum cleaner and pull out the agitator. Pull of the belt and replace it with the new version by sliding it over the slots in the front of the nozzle housing. Reinsert the agitator and screw the plate back over the vacuum cleaner.
