Question about Graco SnugRide 8605

1 Answer

Handle malfunction I recently had the handle on our car seat malfuntion, the red handle on the side that moves the position of the carry handle lost its ability to spring back when released. I took off the screw that holds the handle in place and I cannot figure out what I need to do to make it as it once was. In removing the handle, the other side of the carrier now has the same problem!

Here is the link to the user manual if you need it; Page 44 details how to get these parts - it sounds like either a spring has broken, or more likely that a part of the plastic handle inside where the spring should rest has either snapped or you have the spring the wrong side of it. The drawings in the manual are unclear, perhaps you could post a photo and we may be able to help more :)

Hi, the handle of my maxi cosi cabriofix car seat is loose and moves backwards and forwards when in the upright locked (handle) position. Is this normal? I thought it probably shouldn't move? Thanks.

The handle should not move when locked. Contact the manufacturer and ask for help. I believe the Cabriofix is not a seat available in the USA, so you will need to locate the manufactuer in your country (UK?). Dorel Juvenile Group is the manufacturer in the USA,

Graco Super Seville Pushchair How do I adjust the 3 postition seat

Hi there

At the back of the seat is a metal bar, pull that up and pull the seat back.

I've found with mine that if the handle is one of the two positions (can't remember which, I think it's for forward facing pushchair) you can't recline it at all. I have to move the handle the other way first then recline it.

To move the handle there are two button/levers, one on each side. Lift those up and the handle will move, make sure it then clicks into place.

Hope that helps

Handle is stuck in the carry position--Can it be fixed?

These car seats seem to have a problem in the release mechanism that
lets the handle move. We have found that lifting the handle a bit as you press
the releases can help. Try pulling toward the front of the car seat, then pressing
the release buttons. If all else fails, call Baby Trend and complain. It just might
get you a replacement if you can prove it is a danger to the child in the seat.

Stroller is folded over and we can not bring it up to sitting position

Not sure if you mean the handle is locked up and won't move or the seat is locked up and won't move? The front and rear wheel units are locked by the seat unit. The handle has two release buttons that have to be opperated at the same time to release the handle. The seat tilts by pressing the large white buttons on the side. Let me know what part is not working and I'll try to help.

The seats in my truck do not lock when tilting front to back

Try pulling the side handle near the outside of the seat and holding it in the place you want it and only using the handle on the back to move the seat forward and back into the locked position you set it in. If you pull the side handle every time it will reset the position you had it set for.

Handle up or down?

The handle should be down. It is in the manual. You will have less room, but it is NOT supposed to be up.

How do you fit the ventura plus car seat onto the silver cross 3d pram?


This is a little difficult to explain in text, but here goes..

Recline the seat unit to it's lowest position.
On the arm rests of the pram, there is a piece of fabric covering each arm, these are attached via press studs, undo these and fold them backwards onto the seat area.
This will reveal a plastic hook underneath, these are folded down and need to be raised upwards.
Next, get the Ventura carseat and ensure that the handle is in the carrying postition (i.e facing upwards). On the base of the carseat at the back (directly underneath babys head) there is a distinct cut out shape that will fit snugly onto the bumper bar of the pram, place the carseat on top of the pram (so it is positioned on the seat facing you) and push it down gently. If this is the first time that you have done this, the material may be quite plumped up so you may need to push a little harder.
At the base of the carseat handle either side, there is a button (this is used to adjust the handle position) push these buttons down at the same time and move the handle backwards (away from you) until the handle makes an audible 'click', this means that this has now secured onto the plastic hooks that you first exposed on the arms of the pram.

This should now be securely fastened onto the pram.
I would also suggest that you visit this website as per the link below and download the user manual for the 3D so that you have this is picture format in front of you.

I hope this helps.

I have misplaced the directions for the Bissell powersteamer powerbrush. I need the directions for filling the u tank etc.

Release the handle and lay the machine handle
back to access the Tank.
2. Remove the Tank from the base of the machine by
lifting the Tank carry Handle.
3. Carry like a bucket to the sink. Rotate the Handle
forward to unlatch the lid. Lift off and set the lid aside.
4. Fill up the Bladder with clean hot tap water.
*Do not boil or microwave water as it can
destroy the Bladder.
Replace the top of the Tank by matching the lid
and tank edges. Handle must be in the forward
position in order to replace lid. Rotate the handle
to the carrying position to latch the lid.
Note: Remember to secure the lid and test to
make sure it is secure before picking up the Tank.
Place tank into machine base, seating firmly in place.
Rotate tank handle back into latched position. Bring
machine handle back into upright position.

Lift the formula Tank up and out of the machine base.
2. To fill the Formula Tank, first unscrew the Cap
and Insert. Always use genuine BISSELL formulas
to maximize cleaning and for the safety of your
machine. Fill formula up to the line and replace the
Cap and Insert. Place Formula Tank back into the
base of machine, making sure it is seated securely.
Note: If bottle leaks, check for proper positioning
of red gromment and straw.
