Answers :

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.
You have not listed a brand. You can google or search manufacturers repair parts on line with a brand and model.
Release pedals are generally spring loaded with a metal clamp inside the body. They are relatively easy to replace by removing the bottom plate on most vacs. Pay attention to how the original spring is loaded. Do not remove the old one til you have the new part in hand.

The foot pedal on my Kenmore upright vacuum cleaner has broken three times. The vacuum model number is 116.33923 and the Sear's part number is 8174906. Does Sears make this part in metal instead of plastic? It is becoming expensive to keep replacing this piece when it costs around $20 each time (including shipping) Thank you for your time.

I am replacing a foot pedal on an upright Sharp vacuum cleaner-EC-TU2607. I have the broken foot pedal removed from vacuum cleaner proper but it is the removal of the broken pedal from its spring load that has me puzzled. I applied some pulling effort on the pin that holds the spring in place but there doesn't seem to be any give. Is that the correct approach or is there something else that one should be doing first to release some of the resistance by the pin or spring? Thanks!

Hi! I have a Pfaff Creative 1475. The presser foot seems "gummed up" or stuck. The back lever lifts it with great force, but then instead of staying up like the lever usually does - it then falls back down. The lifting foot stays stuck up and I have to push on it to get it back down. Help?

On-off switch My problem is finding a source for an on-off switch for an electrolux vacuum sweeper model 2100. I have replaced the broken toggle and now the sweeper turns on but only as long as the outside button is depressed. It appears that the on-off switch itself is broken as the switch does not ''hold'' when the toggle is activated. It seems to return to it's ''off'' setting as soon as the toggle is released. What ''holds'' the switch in its ''on'' position? Does it depend only on the on-
