When bumping up stairs handle bar extends, and feels loose (handle bar is very wobbley)


The Bugaboo is not the ideal stroller for bumping up and down stairs, The reason being it's core design. Most stroller handles have two or more mounting points to the frame but most strollers have baby facing forward and facing the big bad world and not Mummy. The Bugaboo is very clever, the handle can be locked ether way and the seat face either way but the handle has only one point where it attaches to the frame and that point has to rotate and lock. To give you an idea of the forces involved a crow bar the length of the Bugaboo handle can pull six inch nails out of hard wood!
Unfortunately Bugaboo have not used the best material solutions in this critical handle lock. They use a plastic disk to move aluminum locking pins and they fail if you bump down to many stairs. This happened to our Bugaboo in New Zealand. I repaired ours and now I help others by making or sourcing the better quality parts to repair them. I use aluminum for the disk and stainless steel for the pins.
If you are lucky another to have a Bugaboo less then two years old and still have proof of purchase documents Bugaboo will replace the frame for you. If it's older you can buy a new frame for around $400 but this will also increase you resale value by around $200 when you sell it. Lastly you can repair it for around $100 a side depending on parts required, Click on my name and you'll find many posts on how to repair both the Handle lock and the Handle extension lever or wing-nut. macnutz_23.jpg

My frame is crooked. how to fix?


Crooked? Bugaboo frames are very strong and it would take considerably force to bend any of the frame members. The Handle Lock and the Handle extension lever lock are another matter all together. They do fail making the frame loose and bendy. I have given detailed instruction on their repair in other posts. Click on my name and you'll find out lot's about your Bugaboo.

Doorhandle forced when locked. now it will not open when unlocked


most likely the door frame is out of alignment due to the force of the weight.
you can try to open the door from the opposite side. push instead of pull.
if that doen't work, use a nail and hammer, remove the pins from the hinges pop open the door off the frame. (have someone braced the door before you push it.)
once you have it open check the alignment of the door frame, and realign it as necessary.

Bissell 3595 handle release pedal spring(?) missing


I just fixed this on my Bissell PowerForce model #6594 vacuum myself. Woo Hoo for me. :-)

I called the local vacuum repair guy and he told me he'd repair it for me if I insisted but that since my machine only cost about $80 (a lot of money for me) it would not be worth the $40-$50 repair. I should just buy a new vacuum (from him I assume).

My machine works great so I sat down on the floor and after removing 5 screws and a little tinkering I got my machine apart. I had to take the brush and belt area off and then the upright part came off the base. Make sure you unplug your unit before working on it.

Next I could see where the Handle Release Pedal (HRP) on the bottom of the unit had been cracked. It's a molded piece that has a slight curve in it that allows it to spring back into position to hold the vacuum in the upright position or to keep the vacuum from going totally flat.

How it was installed I don't think they meant for it to be easily replaced but after using a screw driver on one side and a letter opener on the skinnier side I pried the molded houseing out from around the HRP just enough to let the it release. I did need a third hand for that part.

Main Chassis bar won't lock on one side


We had a similar problem, the right-hand hinge of the frame would not lock and the button was permanently down. What had happened was the handle extension switch housing had come unscrewed and slipped up the frame, causing a small spring to fall out. The lock switches each have a spring which pushes down on a rod inside the frame to lock the hinge. To access the spring, unscrew the handle extension housing and slide it up the aluminum frame. I replaced the missing spring and the frame works perfectly. If the problem is with the spring, this should work. Alternatively the problem may lie inside the lock switch housing, which contains a very simple mechanism which slides the lock rod up and down. This can be unscrewed as well. As far as I can tell, the actual hinge assembly itself is a sealed unit and can't be opened, but hopefully, you won't have to.
Good luck,
Ben
