Hi there,
The UG-74101 adjusts automatically to the correct height for different carpets and floor coverings.
The automatic adjustment may be faulty, or the agitators may have thread or hair wound tightly around them if they do not spin freely.
Since the cleaner is under 6 months old, it should be returned to the retailer for repair under Panasonic's 1 year warranty cover.
