How to replace Handle Release Pedal

\015 The spring is still there, just can't figure out if I should use brut force to push the pedal in or if there is a knack to it.\015

Answers :

In my Model 4870GZ, the foot pedal came out repeatedly with great aggravation. I discovered that this is due to small, broken, inadequate, and poorly designed plastic tabs in the clear plastic housing which were intended to provide a press-fit for the mating tabs on the gray pedal component.

\015\012After removing the red cover (three screws on the underside), I was able to install a wire-strap extending from a screw on the axel mount to another screw on the front side of the pedal. Also, I drilled a through-hole in the gray pedal so that the wire would pass through the pedal and would thus connect as a "hold down" strap from the two mounting screws.
\015\012
\015\012Drilling and taping holes to correct this problem is not advisable since the thickness of the brittle plastic is inadequate to support the forces delivered to the pedal.
I pushed it in with some force.

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!
