SOURCE: Problem with Riccar 8850 Vacuum There

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.

How to replace motor on 8925 riccar vac?


There is not a motor bushing on a Riccar 8925, it has sealed bearings. There is nothing that needs to be timed or adjusted in the motor.

To replace just the hose unscrew it from the swivel attached to the back of the vacuum. The replace swivel insert screwdrivers into the tabs holding it to the body (from inside the dust compartment) to remove it, the new one snaps into place.

Reset switch is located on the back of the vacuum and close to the back wheels.Press a reset switch a few times and vacuum should start. Check also cord plug . Many times metal prongs are broken at the end of the cord (usually one of them)

Won't come on when I plug it in. Does it have a


Greetings from GoVacuum,

Yes, the Riccar 4812 does in deed have a reset switch. Unfortunately some dishonest repair man will tell you at this point that your motor has gone, but 7-10 times it's the reset switch.

If you look down at the base of th vacuum cleaner at the vacuum bottom in the back, right above the rear wheels, you will see a small red button. Take a ball point pen, and while the vacuum is plugged in, go ahead and push the red button or the reset switch. Did the vacuum come on?

If not, it may another simple problem of the cord/ plug going bad.

I hink if it just stopped workint all or a sudden, it's prbably the reset switch.

If it's not, please email me or give me a call and I then diagnose the problem for you.

Belt on Riccar 8850 is slipping off motor shaft.


NO! there is usually a fan attached to the motor. i have found that junk gets in there and will cause it to viberate. otherwise check the brushroll. there will be connectors on each side with a bearing. if the plastic looks melted, replace the brushroll
