Yes. Remove the handle and cable, then remove the bag compartment cover. At the back of the bag compartment, towards the top, you will see four screws. Ignore the one furthest to the left, and unscrew the other three. That will release the cover at the rear, and expose the clip you want to get at. The clip is held in place by a metal C-clip, which can be levered off with a screwdriver, but be careful not to damage it because you will need it to secure your new clip. when you've got the new clip in place, re-position the cover (not that it clips in at the top first), replace the three screws and the job's done.
I value your feedback, so please remember to rate this response.  Good luck!

Top cord handle fell off


The spring is part of the silver power cord clip that you flip around at the top of the handle to release the power cord that has been stored in a coil sour the fixed position plastic hook at the bottom of the handle and this one at the top. There is a long silver screw that goes through a washer then through this clip. The clip is in two parts, the hook or clip that rotates and a saddle that is stationary against the handle. The spring then goes on the screw under the saddle and finally is skewed into the handle.

Need a repair manual for U6476- Self Propelled WindTunnel Bagged. On/Off switch broken.


You don't need a manual for this.
Place the handle drive lever in the locked, off position.
Remove the 2 screws for the handle them remove the handle, you may have to give it a good knock from the front with the heel of your hand. You should now see the front of the switch.
Remove the bad door and set a slide.
There should be a tool caddy at the top front of the unit now, may or may not have a clear door. Remove the tools and locate 3 screws if there was a turbo hand tool, or 4 screws without if 3 attachment tools.
Remove the tool holder and you will see the wiring and switch.
There are 2 kinds of switches; one with clips and one with wires coming directly out of it.
It would be helpful now to take a picture of what you're looking at for reference and ease of putting the wiring the new switch in place.
Remove the clips from the old switch or disconnect the wires.
You can now remove the switch from the body by pushing the clip on the top and bottom until it slides out the reverse side where you first removed the handle.
Push a new rocker switch into place, rewire with clips, or wire nuts according to the picture, drawing, scribble or mental note you made and reverse the rest of the steps.
When you are finished, slide the drive lever to on and you're ready to go. It's a good idea to check the motor filter under the bag, the long side filter and replace the flat belt if have not done previously in the last 6 months. Good luck.
There is no manual but here is a parts break down to see how things fit together. http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/M0605111-00002.png

How do i replace the belt on my hover


lower handle to floor and flip entire unit over. In the bottom near the brush, there are 2 levers that hold the cover on. flip both levers and pull up on cover. It will come out of the 2 wire holders that hold down the 2 front tabs.With the cover removed you can easily access the brush. Firmly grasp 1 side of the brush and pull straight up. This may take a lot of force as the brush may have been seated for a long time. Pull both sides out and clean the area underneath the brush. Also make sure nothing is wrapped around the brush or motor.
After cleaning you're ready to install new belt. Place new belt around brush. After pushing brush through the new belt, with belt loosely around brush slide brush back into housing 1 side at a time. The brush fits in very tightly. The ends have 2 pieces of metal that act as springs, these are installed facing the top. Make sure the brush is pushed down tightly toward the bottom or the cover will not fit right. Once brush is in stretch belt around motor tip. Replace cover by placing the 2 tips into the wire clips and close. Flip the latches closed and turn machine over. Lift handle and you're good to go. You have now completed the worlds longest instructions for a vacuum belt...ever!

How do I fit the foot pedal back on on a SEBO


This is much easier to do than to describe! Your question suggests that you plan to re-fit the same pedal that has come off, so first you need to be sure that nothing actually broke when it came off. You should be able to clip the plastic part back on to the metal part - it should stay there and not fall off (if it falls off, you need a new one). The trick is to get the flat metal part correctly located in the plastic part, so with the plastic part not clipped on, pull the metal part down and rest it in the plastic part, then push the plastic part in to position. The flat metal part should then be trapped behind two projections on the plastic part, so that there is some movement, but not much. These projections may possibly have worn away, allowing the pedal to come away in the first place, in which case you will need a new piece.
I hope this helps. If so, please remember to rate this response as I value feedback. If you need more help, just post a reply here and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Good luck!

Changin the dust bag how do you do it?


1. open the bag compartment by lifting the black catch near the handle. 2. grip the grey plastic fitting on the bag, using the little handles on each side, and slide it out of the black holder. As you do this, part of the grey fitting remains caught in the black holder, and this causes the bag closure to cover the hole. When the cover is fully in place, if the grey bit doesn't release itself, you can help by slightly lifting the black tab where it's trapped. 3. slide the new bag in where the old one came out, and close the lid. 4. job done!

Cant rember how to replace the belt on the power head


1)First, you turn the square belt lifter on the front of the power nozzle until the red arrows line up (belt off of the Kirby's driveshaft but on the "hook" inside the power nozzle) 2)Remove the power head from the front of the machine. Now that it is off the Kirby, you can turn the square belt lifter until the green arrows line up. (Belt on, which means on the driveshaft on the front of the Kirby when the power nozzle is on the Kirby which makes the brushes spin. Now that the power nozzle is off of the Kirby, the belt isn't actually resting on anything but the green arrows will still point to belt ON ) This removes the belt from the "hook" so that it can be slipped off the brush roll. 3)Turn the power nozzle upside down and release the two clips that hold the metal baseplate on and remove the baseplate. 4)Grab the brushroll and pull it out of the power head. Slide the new belt onto the center of the brushroll. It will hang loose...it doesn't have to stretch around anything yet. MAKE SURE THAT THE BRUSHROLL SPINS FREELY!! If it doesn't, you'll burn all new belts quickly due to the added strain on the belt. 5)Look at the ends of the brushroll. The brushroll has three height settings..you should see notches AND NUMBERS on the sides of the brushroll's end caps. ONE notch (also #1) FACE UP on BOTH sides is the first setting and should be used when the roller is new. Three notches is the last setting used before a new roller is needed and should be used if the brushes are short and worn. Put the brushroll back in, making ABSOLUTELY SURE sure that the SAME NUMBER of notches and the same raised number on the edge are FACE UP on BOTH sides. This is important, as the brushroller will be unbalanced if inserted wrong. Also, one end cap of the brushroll is larger than the other and will only fit onto the larger notch in the power nozzle. 6)Replace the baseplate by fitting the front clips into place and then push it down in back and secure it with the two rear swivel clips. Make sure it fits securely down over the bumper on all sides with no suction leakage. 7)Turn the belt lifter to where the RED arrows line up, making sure that the inner "hook" grabs the belt and stretches it up while you are turning it. Once you have the belt stretched up, put the power nozzle back onto the Kirby and lock it in place. 8)NOW...turn the belt lifter back to GREEN. If the little green light on the power nozzle lights up when you turn it on, CONGRATULATIONS!!! The brushroll is spinning!!

Can't figure out how to open the canaster to take the dirt out


Above the clear bin (canister) is the cyclone, and on top of that there's a handle. The whole bin-plus-cyclone assembly is released from the rest of the machine by grasping the handle and releasing the button that is on top of the handle where your thumb naturally falls. The trigger on the underside of the same handle releases the base of the bin (on a hinge) so the waste falls out.
You need to be careful not to squeeze that trigger until the bin is wherever you want to get rid of the waste, or else you'll end up with it all back on the floor!
You can empty the waste directly into a trash can, or enclose the bin in a plastic waste bag before releasing the waste.  After, make sure the base is properly re-secured before re-fitting the bin to the machine.  You can wipe the outside of the bin with a damp cloth.  If you wipe the inside (not necessary, but sometimes nice) make sure it is completely dry before closing the base.
I hope this helps.  I value your feedback, so please remember to rate this response.
Good luck!
