Q:

Handle release wont work on Kenmore Model# 116.36720600

A:

Thank you for your question on the handle lock system not working.

This is strictly a break over friction catch system.

If the handle is more than 90 degrees in the upright position (leaning forward) then it was pushed to far forward and the friction catch is on the wrong side of the tab.

To get it back to where it will be straight up you will need to put you foot on the front of the nozzle and hold it will you pull back on the handle. Once you get broke over it will be okay again.

Please let me know how it goes.

Thank you for the update on the vacuum cleaner. By holding the nozzle down with your foot and pulling back on the handle should do it. If you do not feel comfortable doing that because it does seem like you are going to break it you will have to take the unit apart and that is not easy with the handle locked in upright position. If the tab on the bottom of the dust box breaks then you will need to replace the dust box cover. Remove the dust container and locate the seven screws to remove the top half of the dust box. This should release the tab from the friction lock. Please let me know how it went. Sam A.

Thank you for your response and the solution to the problem. That metal clip can get distorted if the vacuum for some reason got drop a little too hard on the front of the nozzle and push it past its normal lock position. I am glad that you found the problem and were able to solve it. Good job! Sam A.
