I need a you tube showing me how to replace the handle release. when I pick up the vacuum by the handle the vacuum head flops down

If you remove three screws you can remove the assembly with the foot pedal. Look at how it is installed closely in the assembly, including the spring, shaft and pedal. Disassemble it and install a new foot pedal exactly the same way you took it apart.

How do i replace the on off switch on Hoover U6485900

Make sure the power cord is disconnected! There are two sets of three screws one needs to remove. The first set hold the handle assembly to the sweeper body (there are two near the back of assembly and one in front). The second set is inside the cavity that hold the vacuum powered cleaning tool. There are two at the bottom of the cavity and one at the top. Refer to the Assembly Instructions in the Owner's Manual for help. One can then remove the power leads from the on/off switch, push the switch out, and insert a replacement switch. Pay attention to the color of the wires because some switches apparently work with models having 2 black wires (H-28161075), others with a black and yellow wire (H-28161074), and others with connectors to the wires. Reassemble the sweeper reversing the dis-assembly process outlined above.

S5602 shut off

The switch is probably broken. try a flat screw driver up under the foot switch and see if the little button is missing. If the foot switch is not making a click sound when pushing on it the switch is broken. I have found on some of the vacuums I've worked on the on/off switch is not broke. There is a little button about the size of a candy cig and 1/4 " tall and there is usually a rubber spacer with a spring that holds it up off the switch. If one or both pieces are missing that's your problem.

Replace power switch - Electrolux Epic series 6500

well, i post an answer in the wrong field, and i can't find it, so i will type one more time.
slide two vinyl side pieces off, and remove top halves. remove two screws from the switch, and remove it from top halve. between switch and outside button is a plastic rocker, which is broken. you will find two broken pieces, one spring for the rocker piece, and one small plastic rod, which goes inside of the spring for support. i do not know if part is available, but you can for quick fix like me, turn the switch on by the hand, assemble unit, and plug in, and plug out from the wall. whay? i dont have electrolux store close by.

In need of a picture of the on/off switch for Dyson DC17.

This is over a year too late, but perhaps this will help other people in your situation. Here is how the switch assembly should go together:
