    The emergency foot brake stop does not stay up. It seems that a spring has detached. Does anyone know what the problem could be, or where to start looking? Thank You.

    Probably a clevis pin through the pull bar at the pedal arm or at the brake arm has lost its e-clip and has fallen out. That is if the brake no longer works. Or the spring has detached from one end or the other if the brake still works.

    There are 3 springs, a large one inside the cabinet & 2 small ones for the drum shoes. It's not likely for one of them to break or get detached but anything is possible.

    The foot pedal connects to the pull arm assy with roll pins. I would check those first, either one snapped or one fell out. If it fell out it didn't have the right size pin. If the large spring got detached, you'll definitely notice it inside the cabinet.

    Here's a shot of the brake assembly from the G0709 manual (page 102). Like Will mentioned above, 3 springs but the extension one circled is the one holding the foot pedal up. Could be the spring has slipped off, broken or perhaps the crank arm on the pedal axle has slipped.

    One of the pins fell out and the limit switch for the emergency foot brake needed adjustment. Back up and running! Thanks for everyone's response. Boosh
