Thank you for your question on the replacement of the foot control lever for the vacuum cleaner.

Thank you for the pictures.

I will have to do some research on this model to see the best way to replace the foot release lever.

I do not know if you can replace it by removing the top cover or if you have to remove the main body to replace it.

Thank you for your patience.

Hi! I just got an email to take a survey on this. I know you're still looking, but I didn't want to complete the survey while it's being worked on.

Thank you for your patience Debi. I am so sorry but the manufacturer support contact has not gotten back with me yet even though I have been leaving him messages. I will try again today to contact him by phone. I have not worked on that specific model and I wanted to find out how much of the vacuum cleaner you will need to take apart to change the foot release. Sam A.

Thank you for your patience for this information Debi. I will start with having you lay the vacuum upside down and locating and removing I think 3 to 4 screws on the bottom side of the nozzle to remove the top cover on the vacuum. Once you have the screws removed then you can flip the vacuum over on its base and remove the yellow knob for the height adjustment and the top cover. The new foot pedal release has a spring that you may or may not have any longer. You will need that spring in position to install the new foot pedal release. Place the pedal release in position on to the base a snap into position. There should be a couple of plastic tabs formed into the pedal that snap into the nozzle base to install. Please let me know if that worked for you and if not I will try to get a couple of pictures for you from the manufacturer to help with the installation of the pedal. Sam A.

Thanks for the instructions. Can you help me verify which part I need, as in the part number so that I can order it? And, I think the spring part number may be helpful if that isn't there any longer. Is this the correct diagram? http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Eureka-Parts/Vacuum-Parts/Model-4870DT/1281/0645000/P0108180/00001?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=4870DT

I understand how difficult it can be to find specific information on older appliances. I was able to locate some of the information requested. This is a top loading 1997 model. Tub capacity is 2.94 cu ft. The average gallons per load is 34.7. Annual average utility usage is approximately 1281 KHz.

There are still parts available for repairs. The diagrams for this model and available parts can be found here; Sears Parts Direct .

Unfortunately the manufacturer no longer provides manuals for models after 10 years. I was able to locate a manual online that can be ordered. You can find it at this link; Manual .

You may be able to save on water use, energy and repair costs by upgrading to a newer energy efficient model. If you would like to check the newer models, you can view here; Sears .

I hope this information helps. If we can be of future assistance, please let us know. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for your question on the Eureka vacuum cleaner blowing dust.

I am not sure of what all is missing but it sounds like the Hepa filter and the Hepa filter cover are missing.

Filter cover for model 5892BVZ Eureka vacuum cleaner .

Hepa filter for Eureka model 5892BVZ .

If these are not the parts you are missing then I will give you the parts breakdown for the vacuum so you can pick them out on the parts list.
