Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Broken upright locking mechanism
\015 This machine has a locking mechanism that locks it into the upright position. Yesterday this broke and a small piece of plastic flew off. I know I can buy replacement feet but having taken the foot off it does not look damaged, is there anywhere else I should look.\015
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.

Hi, I have a Sebo X4 which is almost 3 years old. I haven't had any problems with it until the last couple of days when I notice a slight screeching noise when in upright position, coming from the roller mechanism area. If I slightly push the sebo forwards it gets worse, if I tip it back it stops. If I take the roller out and switch on, there is no noise. I have always been careful not to tip the machine forwards when using the hose, but I recently lent it to a friend whose hoover had broken do

I have a bissell healthy home vacuum and the roller bar on the base of it is not working. I have checked it for obstructions and it is clear. I have also tried reseating the canister and just about everything I can think of. It's almost like the switch that deterrmines whether or not the vacuum is in the upright position is broken and always says it is upright... any way to fix that? Thanks, Scott Hammersley

I removed the brush from bottom of the vacuum to remove hair from the bristles. When I re-assembled the vacuum, there was no longer suction. Also, the vacuum no longer stands upright when not in use. It's like something is blocking the upright portion from locking.

The brushes will not spin when in the lock down position. I adjusted the arm internally and it does not seem to apply enough pressure to have it fully lock down. Can the mechanisms wear out.

Placing the handle of my Dyson DC07 into its upright and locked position causes the beater bar to stop turning. It will not start turning until the handle is first lowered to the working position and the Carpet/Bare knob is moved to the Bare Floor position and then back to the Carpet position. Then the beater bar turns until the handle is placed into the upright position. What might be the problem?

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!
