I have a scunci rechargeable wet and dry vac. Model 52069. I plugged it in to charge green light turns on. Couple hours later I unplug it and push the button nothing. Need instructions or manual.


Most likely the rechargeable battery needs to be replaced.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a battery pack listed anywhere. You'll probably have to have a company like Batteries + Bulbs (In the USA) take it apart and replace the battery pack.

Where is the thermal reset button


Riccar uses an external thermal reset which is more reliable than most brands which use a thermal reset built into the motor. On your Riccar it will be on the back on the bottom left. It is a little tiny button that you epwill hear "click" when you push on it if it has been popped. If not it will not push in and you won't hear the click. The older models did not all have a reset button. If you have to keep pushing the reset it means that most likely you have a clog somewhere or the bag is full. It's rare but occasionally a thermal reset button may go bad and need replaced.

Why does the riccar vacuum reset button not depress?


In my experience the Riccar requires reset when it has ingested something that jams the roller such as the fringe of an Oriental carpet. Be sure to clear any such obstruction, then I use a ball point pen to press the button. It does not move very far to accomplish a reset.

Power mate brush motor not coming on and overload rest not doing anything


I don't believe that there's any penalty for using the proper amount of words to give us a fair idea of what's going on or not, with your machine." Power mate brush motor not coming on" only gives us a bare minimum of info. Does the vac motor run alone, does it still run when you slide the selector to vac & P.M. or does it quit, have you tried pushing the little red reset button down?

The reset button only pops out if the vacuum motor overheats. It does not affect the brush roll. If the motor is running the problem is most likely a broken or stretched belt.

Our Riccar SupraLite Upright Vac used to glide across the floor so easily, but now we have to push it pretty hard. This just recently started. What can be wrong?


Suggest you check the wheels to see if they are moving freely. Also check the beater brush to see that it is moving freely. Be sure the belt has not broken. If it has, replace with a new one. Also take the time to clean the beater brush of any debris and spray a little WD40 on both ends of the beater brush axle.
