\015\012I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
\015\012Not knowing the brand name and the model # it sounds to me that you have a broken handle release if that is what you are referring to as “Upright Lock Broken” – the handle release lever keeps the hand staying up and in the upright position. So include @ least the brand name and or the model # and I can try to further assist you. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

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 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!

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 have a Dyson Animal DC 28. It vacuums fine on floor mode, but, when locked in the upright position it releases pressure though the little valve behind filter a. I have only had it for 2 weeks so I'm hoping the filters don't need to be cleaned this often! I would like to finish vacuuming without waiting 24hrs for the filters to dry.

Unfortunately with any bagless vacuum the filters do need to be cleaned or replaced very frequently for the vacuum to perform. But the good news is it sounds like you have a clog in the hose. remove the attachment hose as you would be using it and un ... Vacuums
