Need to replace the foot pedal on a Sharp ECTW12T4 Vacuum Cleaner

I have read the post about needing to remove the spit ring on the pin securing the spring assembly to the foot pedal. I need clarification and any pictures that will help in showing which position the assembly needs to be before removing the ring which I assume would be neutral(no tension/load).

SOURCE: Eureka the boss vacuum cleaner brush won't turn

Take the top cover off, remove the torx screws on each side of the motor housing, remove the screw on the back holding the hose, then you just have to compare the 2 before putting on the new one. Can't tell for sure without a model number to get you a picture. What isn't on the new base, take off the old base and put it on the new one.

SOURCE: Assemble Swivel Assembly onto Kenmore Canister vac

Got this post off this web site...I just replaced my swivel and it worked:
http://www.managemyhome.com/mmh/answers/Answers.action#l4q110567
To install a new swivel assembly, you will need 2 small, flat tip screw drivers. Unplug the vacuum. Push the screw drivers in between the hose and the collar where you see the seams in the plastic collar on the end where the hose enters the collar. This will release tabs that hold the collar to the swivel. Pry and pull the collar back over the hose and then pull the small screwdrivers out of the collar. Slide the collar back along the hose. Unplug the wiring connections from the hose. Pull the hose wires up and out of the holder on the swivel assembly. Lift the tabs on the side of the hose and pull it off of the swivel. Push the new swivel onto the hose. Align the hose wires and secure them in the holder. Plug the wires from the swivel into the hose wires (blue to blue, white to white). Secure the swivel wires into the wire holder on the swivel assembly. Push the collar back up the hose and onto the swivel with the plastic seams aligned with the tabs on each side of the hose. Snap the collar securely into place.

SOURCE: How do I remove the pin on my Rainbow Vacuum Model SE clips?

When I used to repair Rainbow SE vacuums for a living, I had a long nail of small diameter that I had filed the end off of just for this purpose. The pin you need to remove is grooved on each end to "catch" in the plastic housing, but a slight tap with a hammer, using this "nail" will do the trick. When you're ready to re-attach it, just tap it again to put it back in place.

How to fit a foot release pedal on a samsung su2931 vacuum cleaner


I have a Samsung SU2920. The pedal has broken. Spare is available on espares. To remove the broken pedal:
Turn the machine over and locate the foot pedal side near a rear wheel.
Operate the pedal to see how it is held in place by a moulded pin which is captured by two lugs on the underside of the body. Use a torch to get some light in there.

Insert a thin blade on either side to bend the plastic lugs slightly so that the moulded pin on the foot pedal can slide upwards without being held by the lugs. The pedal will not slide up easily. I used a hammer and a metal bar to tap it free.
Once the pedal is removed, the spare can be clicked into place from the top without tools.

How do you replace the drive/neutral lever (foot pedal) if it falls off? (The yellow and gray lever that you step on to put it into drive or neutral.) Not sure what happened but it just fell off. Now I...


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 of. Four screws hold the motor cover 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 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

Self leveling platform will not lower.


Hi There,

This is probably being caused by the two little feet on the bottom of the agitator housing. I have yet to completely understand what the purpose of these two feet are, but what happens is that over time the screws that secure them in place begin to loosen, which allows these two little feet to become lodged between the agitator housing (the part the brush is actually in) and the vacuum bag housing (upright part) preventing the agitator housing from releasing when stepping on the foot pedal.

Here's a picture of these two little feet from the parts schematic. You may either tighten the screws, or just remove these two feet entirely from the vacuum cleaner, Other then helping stabalize the vacuum while in the upright position, these don't really seem to much else.

Here's the picutre of the two feet which are circled in red.

If you inspect these feet and they are not loose, then you may have an issue with the handle release pedal itself. Please just add a comment if this did not fix it, and I will be happy to walk you through step by step on how to fix the handle release.

I really hoped that this helped you fix the machine. If you found my repair helpful, please be so kind and rate the repair, or leave feedback for me. This is greatly appreciated by the Fixya community.

Thanks again,

My deluxe elite rewind vacuum spits out dirt


The elite rewind does not have any fancy features. This sound like you have a blockage in the foot or base of the vac. remove the bottom cover to look under. Also check the hose, it can be in there as well.

Power cord caught in rewinder, Sears bagged canister. 10 yrs old Model is 116.3285590C I replied earlier but don't know if you received the information. Thanks Bryan


Hi There,

I'm sorry, I didn't get your comment on your previous repair. In order to get the cord reel out of the canister, here's what you'll need to do:

I have uploaded a parts diagram of your model below so that you can follow along:

7dbc7c2.jpg

Step 1. Open up the tool lid as if you were going to remove the dusting brush or crevice tool from the top of the vacuum. Once the lid for the tools is open, simply grab the two arms at the base of the lid, and pull forward towards the front of the vacuum where the bag connects. You'll need to remove the tool lid completely from the rest of the vacuum. You may have to lift slightly upwards while pulling forwards to remove the lid.

Step 2. After you've removed the tool lid, now open up the lower part of the tool lid that covers the vacuum bag (Part 29 in diagram above). While this cover is open all the way, grab the two arms on this part as well, and pull towards the front of the vacuum where the bag connects, and slightly upwards, just as you did to remove the tool lid. Remove the vacuum bag lid completely from the vacuum cleaner as well.

Step 3. There are two visible screws that are now visible (The screw listed as number 16 that's directly underneath of the number 36) on the front corners of the motor housing. Remove both of these screws that are in the front corners of the motor housing.

Step 4. There are actually two more screws that are hidden on this model, that are located underneath of the foot pedal that retracts the cord reel. You'll need to now remove the foot pedal from the vacuum cleaner (part 36 on the diagram). In order to do this, use a flat head screw driver to pry off the foot pedal. Insert the flat head screw driver in the front of the pedal where the pedal meets the motor housing. There are 4 tabs that hold this pedal in place. Usually if you put your flat head screw driver in the middle of the pedal where two of these tabs are right next to each other, the pedal will come off right away. Insert your flat head screw driver where I have circled red, these are the two tabs that you want to pry off. Simply push towards the rear of the vacuum while the flat head screwdriver is inserted in between the foot pedal and the motor housing:

ecba94c.jpg

Step 4. Now that you have the foot pedal off of the canister, simply remove the two now exposed hidden screws (oh yea watch out for that spring that's underneath of the pedal! remember to put this back when putting the pedal back), and lift straight up on the motor housing. You'll now have full access to the cord reel so that you may push the cord back through the hole in the rear of the vacuum cleaner.

Please feel free to send me a message to chris (dot) jones (the rest of the address is under my name in the signature) if you have any questions, or need some further help in accessing the cord reel. If your cord reel has gone bad, we do carry all the parts for your vacuum, and we'd be more then happy to provide any part that you may need. Here's a link to the bags for your vacuum on our site, just in case you need to purchase some:

If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and return the favor by rating my repair solution helpful. You may do this by clicking the 4 thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner of the repair.
