The handle release pedal on my Lift-Off® Vacuum isn't working. What can I do?


If the handle release pedal is broken and you can’t recline the vacuum, you’ll need a new slider release part. You can order one by clicking here: http://canada.bissell.com/slider-release-2032103?productid=37604

Here’s how to replace the slider release. You’ll need to have someone hold the handle upright or you’ll have to lay the handle down while replacing the part.

1. Detach the canister and set it aside

6. Assemble the slider release back into the unit. It may be easier to work with the non-spring end first; the spring will pop into place on the guide

7. Assemble the cover release and lever release back into the vacuum & re-insert the 3 screws.
