Spring connecting height adjustment

My grandson pulled the u-shape wheel adjustment on the bottom of the vac and the spring connecting it to the height adjustment flew out.  I need help to find out where to connect the ends again.  Even Eureka had no info directly related to this, and I can find no schematics to look at.  PLEASE help me!!!    It's a Eureka Pet Lovers upright. The Model # is 8852 DVZ.  Thank you, Judy

There should be a place easily for the wheel assy to fit back in and then if you look you should see 2 small holes in the bottom of the vacuum that it will slip into. If your looking at the vacuum straight they should be on the left side on the bottom.

Hight adjuestment won't work


Lock the vac in the upright position and then tilt the unit back off the front wheels, it should move easier. If the height adjust does not work, there may be a broken part, I would recommend service by a vac shop.

My front wheels fell off how do I fix it. there is a slender long spring and I don't know where it goes


That spring connects to a slot beside the height adjuster knob and a hole in the base to the wheels that fell off.The problem is you can't get the wheels to go back in flush so the height adjustment works.The vacuum will not be close enough to the floor to get any type up suction or brush contact.To change that spring as well as the belt,remove the cover by taking out two screws,one on each side.Force the rller out by prying the right end out of the slot.

Height adjustment on Hoover Windtunnel u5755-900 no longer works


On this model it is only a single slide adjustment lever. have you trie to tilt the vac backwards (lifting the wieght off the front wheels) and then slide the adjustment lever?

If there is a mechanical issue with it. take the bottom plate and roller out, and then the 2 small screws which hold the cover on underneath. you should be able to see the problem from there

Replacing spring in wheel height adjustment


I just solved the problem. Go to this website: http://www.completevac.com/kirby_schemo_5.html
It will show you where the spring goes (left side inside the ratchet - when you remove the ratchet you will see that it is hollow. That's where the spring goes!) and a good picture of that assembly

I can see the height adjuster under my Bissell pet hair eraser vacuum, but it doesn't adjust. The parts don't look like they're touching. It's been iffy since I took it out of the box. Now it doesn't...


http://uk.bissell.com/images/UserGuides/3920E_508.pdf

This is the pdf manual. If you look at page 12 you'll see that the bottom of the machine has been pictured. Between the middle wheels near the brush (where arrows 4 and 2 are) you'll find that the adjuster bar has a sprung mechanism. Now this is easy if you have time! If you take off the or just inspect the bar, check to see that nothing is clogged behind it. If it looks fine, check with your other hand by moving the rotary dial a couple of times and your other hand pressed down on the central bar between the wheels - if you can feel that the bar is moving whilst you turn the rotary dial then it should be working. Sometimes the spring that connects the dial to the bar can loosen and this may well have been the case. If you can unscrew the assembly do it gently as it will pop up to see if the spring has been put in place and then carefully put everything back together.

Some uprights don't allow the height adjuster to adjust whilst in the upright position though but if it doesn't adjust at all then the spring has definately moved.

Hoover problem


The metal clip is a leaf spring and there is a slot for it, You may have to pull the cover off, may have a broken piece for the adjuster. Would help to have model number.

Carpet Height Adjusment


In addition to the tab that contacts the bottom of the slider, there are 2 protusions on the adjustable wheel plate that move through holes in the housing, but only when the handle is tilted to begin vacuuming. The wheel plate has a spring that forces the tab against the slider. As the handle is moved to the upright position, the protusions move back through the holes, taking the tab away from the slider and the wheel plate locks in its highest position. Therefore, the position of the slider has no effect while the handle is upright and locked. Hope this helps.
