Question about Riccar 8955 Upright Vacuum
I recently replaced what the parts list describes as the Hook Drive Gear on my Riccar 600FA sewing machine, but I'm not able to figure out how to get it "re-aligned" so that the needle doesn't hit the shuttle race cover, shuttle race holder and/or the shuttle hook (whichever it may be hitting; appears to me to be the shuttle hook). The hook drive gear that I replaced was split completely with approximately a 1/16" gap and it seems that - like a motor driven machine - the "timing" is off but I cannot figure out where the adjustments need to be made in order to "re-align" it. Can you help?

Hello there, when sparks come flying out of your vacuum cleaner it usually is as a result of messed up connections and power fluctuations.The probability of the motor needing replacement is very high as unless i examine it i cannot say for certain but one thing i can say for certain is that the entire wiring of the unit has to be inspected thoroughly because this is where the main problem would have emanated from. The unit would definitely need other components other than the motor changed this is because if the other components which have been affected dont get replaced then even a new motor will face the same problem after a relatively short period. best refer the unit to an expert to determine the extent to which the other components are affected and what other parts are damaged. Also to determine if the entire motor needs replacement or some part of the motor can still be salvaged.
Hope this support has been helpful?
Thank you for visiting FixYa.
