SOURCE: Where is the model number on the Riccar Brilliance

As you're looking at the back of the vacuum, the model number should be located on the tag beside the right wheel. If there is no model number there, then the model is simply the name of the vacuum, in this case Brilliance.

I can't reset my thermal reset button on my Riccar Brilliance


You may have hair and debris in the endcaps or bearings of your brushroll causing a restriction. The belt sensor thinks you have something stuck in the brushroll so it shuts it off. It's a simple fix, if you can't figure out how to do it take it to your Riccar dealer.

Belt continually slips off Riccar upright vacuum


Your 8850 is an old vacuum. If a new belt does not solve the problem it may need a new rubber motor mount or metal pivot. Both parts are inexpensive and available from your Riccar dealer. If it's been a while since it's been serviced it would be wise to have it serviced by your dealer. A Riccar vacuum will last for many years but should be serviced once a year like all vacuums.

Riccar 8955 power cord replacement


Remove the dust compartment door to gain access to the cover over the wiring and switch compartment. Remove three screws to gain access to be able to remove the old power cord and slide it through the hole in the back of the vacuum. Put new cord through the hole and wire back up as it was before.

Replace belt on Riccar Brilliance


The Brilliance has a lifetime belt but if it gets overheated it can get warped and comes off. Normally you do not need to replace the belt unless there is a problem. You have to remove the cover over the power nozzle assembly by removing the screws on the bottom. Notice how the belt goes around the motor shaft and through the "Hall Assembly" which is the spring loaded lever that detects a jam and shuts the brush roll motor off.

Riccar brilliance fan replacement


Take off the bottom plate and the nozzle housing cover. Remove the motor cover to get to the direct air motor. This is not a difficult fix if you take your time to make sure you reassemble it properly

No suction on carpets


The reason it doesn't pick up on the carpets is because the belt is stretched or worn and can't turn the roller brush against the resistance of the carpet. Here is a link to the replacement belts you need:
