Having problems with your Hoover Vacuums ?

How to install Hoover release handle part no. 38434026.


Answers :

There was a solution (from reddevil6) to a similar query on FixYa dated March 6, 2008. To quote:
\015\012"There are 2 tabs that stick out on the release, they fit in slots, so from the top look down and you can see them, using a flatblade screwdriver that will fit in there, push the side in to release it, which isn't easy, but it can be done. When you get the old one out, then the new one, push down on it until it locks into place."
\015\012I followed these instructions and it worked great. Very easy. Took about 30 seconds to replace the old handle release with the new one. Thanks to reddevil6 for the solution.

VACUUM REPAIR I have a Hoover Savvy upright, windtunnel, bag/bagless vacuum (model U8150-900). The Handle Release Foot Pedal - Part #38434026 broke soon after purchase but I finally found a source to replace this item. The problem is that now that I have the repair part I cannot figure out how to remove the old pedal and install the new one. The housing appears to be one piece of solid plastic. Any ideas, PLEASE!
