Having problems with your Bissell 3522 PowerForce Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Bissell 3595 handle release pedal spring(?) missing

\015 I assume there is some kind of spring that keeps the handle release pedal in compression against the frame of the vaccuum and when we press the pedal to release the handle, the spring causes the release pedal to spring back, locking into the frame. My question is; where is this sprint, or is it a torsion bar, coil, piston, etc? My handle release pedal doesnt have any spring (it is a dead hand now) so I cannot store the vaccuum in the upright position because it doesnt lock.\015

I just fixed this on my Bissell PowerForce model #6594 vacuum myself. Woo Hoo for me. :-)

\015\012I called the local vacuum repair guy and he told me he'd repair it for me if I insisted but that since my machine only cost about $80 (a lot of money for me) it would not be worth the $40-$50 repair. I should just buy a new vacuum (from him I assume).
\015\012
\015\012My machine works great so I sat down on the floor and after removing 5 screws and a little tinkering I got my machine apart. I had to take the brush and belt area off and then the upright part came off the base. Make sure you unplug your unit before working on it.

\015\012Next I could see where the Handle Release Pedal (HRP) on the bottom of the unit had been cracked. It's a molded piece that has a slight curve in it that allows it to spring back into position to hold the vacuum in the upright position or to keep the vacuum from going totally flat.
\015\012
\015\012How it was installed I don't think they meant for it to be easily replaced but after using a screw driver on one side and a letter opener on the skinnier side I pried the molded houseing out from around the HRP just enough to let the it release. I did need a third hand for that part.

I have a Kenmore vacuum cleaner model #116.34720. The problem I am having is that if you are rolling the vacuum around, the base will drop without pressing on the handle release pedal. This often results in a bunch of dirt being dumped back out. The manual doesn't show anything about adjusting the handle release pedal so it holds the handle and base in an upright position better. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

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!
