SOURCE: Hoover Handle Release Pedal Replacement--How is it possible?

If you look at the picture, the slots are right across from the drive wheels, you can see the slots in the picture. Use a flat blade screwdriver.

SOURCE: Handle foot pedal release U6425-900

If you look under the vacuum where the latch is located, it is held in place by tabs on either side of the latch. The latch had a pin that holds it in place. You need to insert a small flat blade screwdriver to bend these latches back carefully to release the pins. Once the pins are freed, the latch can be pulled out the top. The replacement should be installed in the same orientation by pushing in from the top until the pins on the latch snap into place.

SOURCE: How do you replace Hoover Handle Release Pedal on

The handle pedal is snapped in to the base, where it pivots.
The pedal needs to be pried away fron the base, exposing the pivot pin to release it for removal. On your model, you will likelly have to remove the lower handle from the base (where it pivots) to get room to release and replace the pedal.

Cannot remove handle or release handle?
Release from the center pedal at the rear of the unit. Rove the handle with 2 long narrow bolts located near the half way point from handle grip to the base; don't loose the two small nuts or you'll have a bad time.

How to install Hoover release handle part no. 38434026.


There was a solution (from reddevil6) to a similar query on FixYa dated March 6, 2008. To quote:
"There are 2 tabs that stick out on the release, they fit in slots, so from the top look down and you can see them, using a flatblade screwdriver that will fit in there, push the side in to release it, which isn't easy, but it can be done. When you get the old one out, then the new one, push down on it until it locks into place."
I followed these instructions and it worked great. Very easy. Took about 30 seconds to replace the old handle release with the new one. Thanks to reddevil6 for the solution.

Hoover Handle Release Pedal Replacement--How is it possible?


Remove the brush roll, then there 3 screws to remove from the bottom. Then on each side there is a slot, use a flat blade and push on them, then the top rill come loose. That idler arm lock is # 4 in the picture and the knob holds it in place, unless it came off, you don't need to replace it. The handle release #6, there 2 tabs that fit into a holder on each side, stick your screw driver in there and try to twisp and pry it out from the holders, then pop in the new one.
