Yes. They do have a spring loaded lock. More than likely this lock has broke and have lost the part. Let me know what kind of vacuum it is, and I will see if I can find you a replacement part. I will need to know the band and model. Thanks!

Dyson DC25 -wand extension lost a spring and becomes disconnected during use. I don't know where spring should be?


The button you push to release the wand has a spring to allow it to spring back after the button has been released. If that spring is missing the wand will not stay attached.

The handle release pedal wasn't allowing the handle to lower. I took off the pedal and saw the spring load part was broken. What is this part and how to replace it? Bissell 3760-3 handle release


Order Slider Release (7.93, vacpartswarehouse) Pull off 'tank.' Remove 3 Screws for Foot Detent Lever. Pull off. Remove old slider release and spring (verify it's broke.) Replace with new. I just did this today after a year of dealing with it.

The brush does not move when turned on. The model number is UH70015. The belt appears loose.


There are two belts on this machine. The belt on the brush roller will appear loose when in upright locked position. Releasing the handle to an in use position releases a spring loaded idler pulley which increases tension on the brush roll driving belt. Check whether pwr on/off button flashes when attempting to turn on. This may indicate an obstruction or faulty sensor.

Regarding my Kirby Generation 3 upright vacuum cleaner: the handle does not lock into place, but rather falls to the floor. Any thoughts on how to get it to stay in place? Also, I lost my owner/operator...


The plate that catches the handle to lock has a hidden spring behind that plate.I would leave it alone for the unit is pressed together. Used ones are found most everyday on Ebay. The owners manual maybe found on this website

Vacuum will not pick up dirt. plate in hose stays shut. It has a spring that goes to the plate assemily but will not open. What make it open and close. U6616-900 Hoover Vac Alex


Sounds like you have a valve arm not operating properly. The valve door sould spring open when you lower the handle and will shut when the handle is raised and pushes down on the rear valve arm. See a parts diagram and look at parts 39-41 and 19.

Dyson 28 handle is stuck in the locked and upright position. Vac runs fine, just can't get the handle to release to run the vac


On the lower right side of the body of this model is a air duct piece that can get stuck and won't allow you to use the release. Take out that piece and put it back on again to see if that will unlock it.

Dirt Devil vacuum Release pedal not working


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.
