Question about Bissell 3910 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
There is a pedal low down (left rear of unit) that when depressed it unlatches and the unit can tilt but when put back upright, it does not spring back to latch and lock in. Is there a tension spring that may have fallen off?

I have Bissell Power Steamer Clear view IIII #3105403. I let someone borrow it (mistake #1) and he over extended the foot pedal that angles the upright during use. The pedal is still connected, but the power steamer is locked in the upright position. There is also a bit of dirty water in the bucket, and i cannot empty it because it's basically locked in now. HELP
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Sorry you are having a problem with your Bissell, it sounds like he bent the handle release lever and you either need to bend it back or replace it depending on the level of damage to the item. Please feel free to contact the Bissell factory to see the best way to fix the problem, it is not an expensive fix however so contact your local vac dealer or get a referral from the Bissell factory for the nearest Bissell authorized dealer in your area.
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

There is no release, the part is a plastic handle release lever, you can find those at www.hesco.com, the cost is approximately 2.29 each, I have replaced more than 20 of these on the commercial vacuums for my cleaning crew, the part is easily broken and easily replaced. I always have 6 or more on hand.
Turn the vacuum over, remove the bottom plate, with a flat head screw driver punch out the old part. turn the vacuum upright again after the broken part is removed. With the body laying back on a hard surface, carefully push in the new part. Unfortunately, these are plastic, too bad they cannot design a more sturdy part for this.

I had this problem once before. The only thing I did was loosen the back 2 screws, take the release latch and just play with it until it catches, rea simple.

I just fixed this on my Bissell PowerForce model #6594 vacuum myself. Woo Hoo for me. :-)
I called the local vacuum repair guy and he told me he'd repair it for me if I insisted but that since my machine only cost about $80 (a lot of money for me) it would not be worth the $40-$50 repair. I should just buy a new vacuum (from him I assume).
My machine works great so I sat down on the floor and after removing 5 screws and a little tinkering I got my machine apart. I had to take the brush and belt area off and then the upright part came off the base. Make sure you unplug your unit before working on it.
Next I could see where the Handle Release Pedal (HRP) on the bottom of the unit had been cracked. It's a molded piece that has a slight curve in it that allows it to spring back into position to hold the vacuum in the upright position or to keep the vacuum from going totally flat.
How it was installed I don't think they meant for it to be easily replaced but after using a screw driver on one side and a letter opener on the skinnier side I pried the molded houseing out from around the HRP just enough to let the it release. I did need a third hand for that part.

Remove the handle and check for continuous spray.
After handle is removed, check to make sure the valve is not stuck in the down position. If the valve is stuck in the down position, push on it manually to get it to come back up. If it is stuck you may need to get a new handle for your unit. This handle is for a variety of the ProHeat models http://www.bissell.com/parts/?sc=part&productid=2775&partid=4449&cid=ccsocial
Check to make sure it will properly fit your model if you need a new handle.
