Question about Riccar RC1100 Compact Vacuum
Hi- I just bought a used riccar 1700. the canister power turns on just fine but the power nozzle and power brush wont turn on. I bought this under the premise that these are reliable machines that last a long time. Will this be an expensive fix? is there some sort of computer reset that i could do myself? -Laura
Make sure the 'Power brush' switch on the contol panel on the hose is depressed. Check the circuit breaker on the power nozzle; it will either be a button or a breaker that looks like a rocker switch, try to reset it.
Is the power nozzle motor running but the brush just isn't turning? If so you may have a broken belt. Not a likely solution since the belt is a lifetime belt, but still remotely possible.

There could be a break in the electric from the machine to the hose - or from the hose to the wand - or from the wand to the Power Nozzle - or it could be the motor is bad.
Wiggle the cord at the Hose with it running- then go to the Wand - then to the Power Nozzle. You may find a break in the wires anywhere along the line.
unplug the Vacuum:
If you have a meter check to see if the reset is working - and last check to see if the motor will work removed from the Nozzle.
