Having problems with your Sharp Twin Energy EC-12TWT4 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Self leveling platform will not lower.

\015 When foot pedal is pressed the handle will release but the platform does not lower\015

Answers :

Hi There,
\015\012This is probably being caused by the two little feet on the bottom of the agitator housing. I have yet to completely understand what the purpose of these two feet are, but what happens is that over time the screws that secure them in place begin to loosen, which allows these two little feet to become lodged between the agitator housing (the part the brush is actually in) and the vacuum bag housing (upright part) preventing the agitator housing from releasing when stepping on the foot pedal.
\015\012Here's a picture of these two little feet from the parts schematic. You may either tighten the screws, or just remove these two feet entirely from the vacuum cleaner, Other then helping stabalize the vacuum while in the upright position, these don't really seem to much else.
\015\012Here's the picutre of the two feet which are circled in red.
\015\012If you inspect these feet and they are not loose, then you may have an issue with the handle release pedal itself. Please just add a comment if this did not fix it, and I will be happy to walk you through step by step on how to fix the handle release.
\015\012I really hoped that this helped you fix the machine. If you found my repair helpful, please be so kind and rate the repair, or leave feedback for me. This is greatly appreciated by the Fixya community.
\015\012Thanks again,
\015\012Chris Jones

On my hover U6616-900 the self propell work fine on the med setting on med height carpet, but when I go to low height carpet and height set on med the self propell does not pull the vacuum and it is hard to push. Also if I raise the height to the highest setting the self propell works correctly and appears to clen. Any ideas? S/N 090400184555, think this vacuum is maybe 5 years old and my wife uses it lots. Should I think of maybe a complete overhaul or a replacement at this time?

Chatter We have a Kirby Ultimate G. Since we purchased it it bounces across the floor and the level of the sweeper has nothing to do with it. To get it to stop, it has to be at the highest level. The place we bought it, has done nothing to help us. We tried a new beater brush, no help. If I have to use it at it's highest level to sweep my carpet, I might as well not waste my time.

ShopVac pump The waterhose connection is up high. The only way to get the water up to the level of the hose is to continually hold down the on button due to the automatic shut off after it fills to a certain level. On the bottom of the filter there is a hole. I am thinking there should be a small hose of some sort to put into that hole that would then lead up to the level of the water hose. Concept makes sense to me. But in the meantime, good old duct tape seems to have done the trick. Not exact
