Riccar 1700 power nozzle wont turn on

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.

Why


Hi! There are a few reasons why your brushes may not be spinning. Try these simple steps below.

1. Your brush roll may be clogged. Unplug the cleaner and remove any debris from brush roll.
2. Make sure the brush roll setting is turned on. The brush roll on/off switch is located on the handle of the hose.
3. Reset the brushes. The brush roll reset button is located on the back of the nozzle on the right side.

Hope this helps! If you still have questions feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil.

Can you buy new contacts for a other wise good cord reel in my 1700 riccar


No. I've never seen contacts go bad on one. You might be able to bend them some so they make contact.

Riccar 1700 won't power on, outlet is working, no


Hi,

If this problem happened after you replaced the filters, check that the filters have been installed correctly because some filters have sensor magnets installed on them and unless they are in their correct position, the machine wont power on.

I hope this helps you

Canister works, vacuum doesnt


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.
