Question about Eureka Smartvac 4870 Bagged Upright Vacuum
The spring is still there, just can't figure out if I should use brut force to push the pedal in or if there is a knack to it.
In my Model 4870GZ, the foot pedal came out repeatedly with great aggravation. I discovered that this is due to small, broken, inadequate, and poorly designed plastic tabs in the clear plastic housing which were intended to provide a press-fit for the mating tabs on the gray pedal component.
After removing the red cover (three screws on the underside), I was able to install a wire-strap extending from a screw on the axel mount to another screw on the front side of the pedal. Also, I drilled a through-hole in the gray pedal so that the wire would pass through the pedal and would thus connect as a "hold down" strap from the two mounting screws.
Drilling and taping holes to correct this problem is not advisable since the thickness of the brittle plastic is inadequate to support the forces delivered to the pedal.
