Dyson 25 canister release spring


It should be placed behind the catch (button). If the button retainers are not broken off, just place it under the catch and snap it back into place.

Top cord handle fell off


The spring is part of the silver power cord clip that you flip around at the top of the handle to release the power cord that has been stored in a coil sour the fixed position plastic hook at the bottom of the handle and this one at the top. There is a long silver screw that goes through a washer then through this clip. The clip is in two parts, the hook or clip that rotates and a saddle that is stationary against the handle. The spring then goes on the screw under the saddle and finally is skewed into the handle.

The handle release pedal wasn't allowing the handle to lower. I took off the pedal and saw the spring load part was broken. What is this part and how to replace it? Bissell 3760-3 handle release


Order Slider Release (7.93, vacpartswarehouse) Pull off 'tank.' Remove 3 Screws for Foot Detent Lever. Pull off. Remove old slider release and spring (verify it's broke.) Replace with new. I just did this today after a year of dealing with it.

Dyson Slim - suction is fine on bottom, but pipe has no suction at all. No blockage. When I remove pipe from the back at the bottom, I can see round white plastic thing in the opening. Right before it...


There is a diverter valve on those that changes suction from the hose to the floor when you pull the handle back. It usually makes the machine bind and not stand up. ( exactly what you are describing ) You need to take it to your local vac shop and they can fix it for you. The part that fell out was the retaining disc and a screw went in it to hold the diverter valve spring in place. Doubful if you can repair this on your own. It will not make since how it should go back if you've never seen it before.

Eureka model 4870DT plastic foot pedal for is broken


Hello,

This a fairly frequent repair on the Eureka Smart Vac model 4870, so I decided to go ahead and take a few pictures of the handle release pedal repair, and walk you through this step by step. The model that I did the repair on is a slightly newer model, but other then maybe the color of the vacuum, or the color of the foot release pedal, the repair is identical. $40 is an awful lot of money to do this repair, after it's all done with you'll be very happy that you choose to post this repair on Fixya, rather then paying $40 for someone else to fix it.

What you'll need to complete this repair. The links contained in the parts are links to the parts on our website, GoVacuum if you don't already have the new pedal.

- Eureka Smart Vac Model 4870 Handle Release Pedal (colors may vary, but will fit ALL 4870 models) Eureka Part 70042-355N
- Eureka Smart Vac Model 4870 Handle Release Spring (Only needed if missing underneath of old pedal)
- Large Flat Head Screwdriver
- A small amount of elbow grease. :-)

Step 1. Remove the old handle release pedal from the base of the Eureka Smart Vac if it hasn't already fallen out of the base of the vacuum. Here's what the pedal looks like installed in the base:

The easiest way to remove the old pedal if it's still inside of the base of the machine, is to take a larger sized flat head screw driver, and put it up underneath of the pedal. With the screwdriver underneath of the pedal, pry upwards on the pedal until it pops off. This can take some pressure to get it out, don't put too much pressure on this part or it will crack the bottom housing. If the pedal won't come out from the bottom, you may also try putting the screwdriver in between the top housing (different colored plastic part in front of the pedal) and the pedal and try prying here. I find it the easiest to do when I put the screw driver underneath and pry upwards like this:

Step 2. Once you've removed the pedal from the base of the vacuum cleaner, make sure that the spring is still inside the base. The spring is a metal torsion part that pushes upwards on the pedal to keep it from always falling out of the vacuum cleaner. I have highlighted the spring in this picture in red:

Step 3. If the spring is still installed, you're now ok to put the new pedal on. You'll see on one side of the pedal that the notch that locks the machine in the upright position, as well as on the bottom part of the pedal that part of the pedal that connects into the lowest part of the base that has two little circular notches that protrude out. This part of the pedal goes on the side closest to the vacuum cleaner's upright body. There's really one way the pedal will go into the vacuum. Put the pedal over top of the metal spring, and push down on the pedal as far as it will go. I find that a few GENTLE hits with a hammer on the top of the pedal will gently slide the pedal into the correct part of the lower base:

Step 5. Test the pedal by stepping on it to make sure that the handle release when you're stepping on the pedal. Also make sure the vacuum will lay flat on the floor when you step on the pedal a second time. Now raise the handle into the upright position and make sure that the machine locks itself in the upright position. If yes, then you're all set! If it's not locking, then there may be a more serious problem of the lower base part being cracked, which will not allow the pedal to sit properly. If this is the case, please just reply to this repair, or start a new repair with that problem, and I'll be happy to show you how to fix this. If this repair was helpful to you, (it seems that it saved you $40!) please be so kind and rate my repair helpful by clicking on the 4 thumbs up icons in the top corner of the repair. I really do appreciate that. We do carry most every part for your vacuum on our website, please feel free to check out our site, Govacuum.com for all of your Eureka vacuuming needs!

Thank you,

Chris J.

Foot controlled handle release lever is broken. Where to get parts?


I had same problem - the foot release pedal would not spring into place when unit was upright (but would work if you nudged in place with your foot). I installed a replacement part, and it didn't fix the problem. I cut out a small sqare of sponge and jammed it behind the flat end of the bent plastic spring on the release pedal, and it now springs back as it shoud. Hope this helps.

Bissell proheat used does not put out water


The spring your talking about goes where the trigger switch is. You need to dismantle the entire unit to access this, remove 6 screws on hood, two main handle screws, two tool caddy screws and finally two lower back housing screws. Removed top handle and gently open unit up
