Replacing the foot pedal

Ordered the new part and am not able to take off the old one to replace.  The original foot pedal piece is broken and no longer snaps and hold the upright in place.  I have not been able to take out the pin that holds the broken piece in place.

    I am working on this too. Prying/pushing... Guess the spring is holding on tightly.

There is two C clips on the pin that must be removed first. then the pin will come out. if you need a picture of this or have any other trouble feel free to let me know. I also stock those foot pedals if you need one.

    If you wouldn't mind emailing me pictures of how to remove & install one of these, I'd appreciate it. Also, I'd like to know how much one of the foot pedals you have would cost. You can email me at rocnarmood@hotmail.com Thanks.

    where are the 2 clips? only found one: cwalshcya@yahoo.com

    There was only one c-clip on my model. I just removed it by pulling it out with needle nose pliers. Then, I just wiggled the pin and it began sliding out. THANKS SO MUCH! Until I saw your post about the c-clip, I was about to give up. BTW, if someone needs a foot pedal, I ordered mine from www.vacshopusa.com. Their price, including s/h was less than $20. They also shipped quickly. Again, thanks for telling me about the c-clip!

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.

Remove hose adaptor for eureka maxima to replace with new one


We banged on the black rubbery part that holds the hard plastic adapter in place until the old adapter was broken into pieces then removed the pieces. The new adapter just simply snapped into the rubbery black connector piece. I then used a screw driver to scrape the gasket out of the old adapter and put it into the new one.

Foot latch is broken. need to replace with new one. how does one access to remove the foot pedal latch. By foot latch, I mean the foot lever that releases the upright to lower the handle and begin...


it is accessed from the bottom underneath by the rear wheel. However, If there are and cracks on the pedal release socket area then the base will need replacement. parts are little cost but the unit needs to be completely disassembled.

Model 8975-C - broken foot lever


I'm fairly upset with Bissell over this issue and considering switching to a better brand after constantly having to replace this item on every vacuum of theirs I've had. It is shocking that they would have a part that gets stomped by your foot and jerked with the entire weight of the vacuum made out of cheap plastic. The curved piece acts like a spring to hold the vacuum upright. Can you imagine a curved leaf spring made out of plastic?? In any case, they call this an "internal part" and therefore not user serviceable. You have to call their 800 number to get a dealer local to you, usually a sewing and vacuum place, and then get them to sell you the part. Otherwise, you are going to have to take the vacuum to them and have the dealer replace it.

Bissell Bagless Vacuum cleaner


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.

Foot Pedal was knocked out of alignment


You will have to take the top loose so you can put the handle release in its place. It probably isn't in the right place, either that or a piece of it broke off and it needs to be replaced.

VACUUM REPAIR


There are 2 tabs that stick out on the release, they fit in slots, so from the top look down and you can see them, using a flatblade screwdriver that will fit in there, push the side in to release it, which isn't easy, but it can be done. When you get the old one out, then the new one, push down on it until it locks into place.

Broken upright locking mechanism


I need to know what brand the vacuum is. Various brands have different ways of locking the handle, but most incorporate a pedal that engages the handle. It sounds like you will have to replace the pedal. I hope it's not the handle portion. That becomes more complicated and expensive to replace.
