Having problems with your Royal 5300 Upright Vacuum ?

Royal upright handle fork spring replacement

\015 I have an old(er) Royal upright. The handle fork spring is broken and I have a new spring, but I'm having some difficulty removing the bolt through the fork and spring. Do I need a bigger hammer or better technique?\015

Answers :

This is actually fairly normal, and there's no real easy way to get that bolt out. Your best bet is to continue turning it as if you were unscrewing it while applying pressure to the opposite end. A narrow piece of metal can help, especially if coaxed with a ballpeen hammer. If possible, you can try to apply some pressure upward on the spring to keep it from holding the bolt too tightly, but this only works about half the time.
\015\012Getting the bolt back into place is also something of a nightmare, as you have to use your thumbs to hold the new spring in place while forcing the bolt back into place. I've had indentations on my thumbs from holding that spring many times.

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!
