take off the bottom like you are replacing the belt. You will find a little metal clip that controls the upright lock.  It may be lose or broken.

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.

SOURCE: handle wont go to upright position

The red pedal has slipped out of position. On both ends of the red pedal you'll see metal rods (the axel of the pedal). On one side you'll see the metal rod sits into a long groove, on the other side you'll see the metal rod sits into a round hole. They both have to be in the long grooves so you have to reposition the rod that's into the round hole by pulling it out and sliding it back into the long groove above the round hole. You'll now be able to bring the handle up and lock the machine back into the upright position.

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 to fix floor pedal on riccar 8850


Your 8850 is probably over 15 years old, almost all parts are interchangeable with the 8955 or 8925 model made today. You may need to replace the pedal if the catch has worn or broken. There is no wire on the. Pedal assembly but there is a spring that goes on the pedal shaft to make the pedal spring back after you push on it.

Too much suction on smooth surface


Check the wheels on the bottom plate to make sure they are not allowing the bottom to sit flat on the floor. The wheels must keep maintain a gap between the plate and floor or it will suck down like a suction cup.

The foot pedal to go from drive to nuetral on my G series fell off and i cant seem to get it back in


The pedal assembly must be replaced,( part # 558401S), as it has a gear pressed to it which has come loose. The handle, switch plate, and upper motor cover must be removed first. To remove the plastic switch plate, remove it's screws and insert a flat screwdriver into the rectangular slot in it to pop it off. Four screws hold the upper motor shell in place. Next the switch button must be removed. The Techdrive assembly can be removed by removing the three screws on the bottom. Drop the drive down, and unhook it's belt from the gear on the end of the armature shaft. The pedal assembly can be removed by removing the remaining screw from the bottom of the drive unit. The N/D pedal has two parts - the pedal itself, and the shift cam. Observe carefully how these units fit together. After installing the new pedal and replacing the screw and washer to secure it, re-install the drive unit. The shift must be in the Drive position to install it, and remember to replace the belt. Be sure to line up the arm on the drive unit so that it engages the slot at the base of the handle pivot and re-install the other items.

I have a Kirby G5 and need to replace the gear drive shaft, as the lever inside fell off and the shaft came out. (Common problem by the sound of it.) How do i remove the actual gearbox itself. I have...


I have never touched a Kirby vacuum before and my wife had the same issue. The neutral/drive pedal just fell out so I figured I would give it a shot to see if I could fix it and quickly figured out the 3 screws in the bottom plate for the drive unit wasn't the answer.



I was able to figure things out out after I found a parts list with diagrams at the follow web site and address:



Vac Parts Warehouse.com

http://www.vacpartswarehouse.com/category-s/2821.htm



The two parts involved are:

13. Bracket Cam Assembly Neutral Drive Pedal 557689A

16. Kirby Pedal Cam For Neutral Drive G6 558499A



Here's how to get to a point that you can get these two parts in/out of the machine.



- Remove bag and fill tube from handle and main unit

- Remove floor nozzle assembly

- Remove the handle via the two screws at the handle fork plate (these have loctite on them so needed a socket wrench with torex bits to get them out).

- Remove the plastic rear scuff plate vie the screw with the power cord anchor and screw by the Pedal Cam For Neutral Drive. Note release plastic tab in slot in the center and lift from the back and then over the base where the handle attaches.


I did not do this as I removed the the power drive assembly so I could figure out how to put the dive assembly back together. The pressed on arm that drives the cam assembly had pulled of the pedal shaft so this also made it easier to fish out the parts and experiment on positioning the arm in the right spot . I found the arm and a spring washer inside.



I assume at this point you could loosen the screw (don't remove it, it's the only one with a star lock washer on it) on the bottom plate that attaches the Bracket Cam Assembly and slide the Pedal Cam out and a new one in if you can get the part and replace it. The part was 16. Kirby Pedal Cam For Neutral Drive G6 558499A at Vac Parts Warehouse.com. The one listed on the website said it was for a G6 even though the parts listing is for a G5 so I don't know....



To continue to disassemble and take the power drive assembly out:

- Remove the 4 screws from the Cover Shell assembly - the metal top part. You do not need to remove the hinged Headlight Cap that is attached to it.

- Remove the 4 screw from the bracket assembly that has the handle attachment and forward/reverse switch. It attached by two wires. I only disconnect one and swung it to the side.

- Snap off the the on/off switch and disconnect from the Actuating Rod Foot Pedal to Power Switch.

- Remove the 3 screw from the bottom plate of the power drive assembly.

- Remove the drive belt.

- The power drive assembly will now drop out the bottom.



I just put the spring washer and arm back on the shaft and reassembled. I'll see how long that lasts before before buying the new part.



Have fun.

Hi The catch on my miele revolution has come off


Not sure about this, but have had a look at my own Miele which is similar. I suspect that, although it may not be visible, something must have broken to allow that catch to come off. Sorry, but you probably need a professional repairer to actually take a look at it.

Bottom of dirt container doesn't stay closed


The catch/latch that is on the bottom of the bin button release has likely broken.  
If you take out the canister (as when you are dumping the bin), and flip it upside down and then squeeze the bin release button, you will see that it moves a rod inside the cyclone assembly.  At the end of this rod is a plastic (plastic.. redundant, as the entire Dyson is practically plastic) latch that catches onto the bin's lid and locks it in place.  A broken latch means it doesn't lock the lid in.
What you need is a replacement latch.  Note that the "Bin Release Button + Rod assembly" that are sometimes sold on ebay do *not* contain the latch at the end of the rod.  Also the bottom bin assembly does not contain the required parts.
The cyclone assembly should have the full bin release rod + latch, so if you can't find the latch, then a new cyclone assembly would work also (but will cost more, obviously).

Bissell upright vac, brush on bottom does not rotate


The front brush motor will not engage until the power is turned on and the handle is in the down position. In the upright position the brush motor wont engage. Typical faults will be the belt is broken and needs replacing or the fornt brush motor needs replacing.
