It could be that the brush motor just needs to be reset. You should find a button near the brushroll cleaner step lever.

How to trouble shoot a brush warning light


What color light are you referring to? If it is one of the green lights that is normal for the up and down adjustments. If it is the red one that is another issue. If it is the red one, what does it do while it is on? Does it flash or is it on solid?

After turning on power , brush roller freezes and indicator light turns red


try turning the roller by hand UNPLUG VACUUM FIRST
it should turn very easy, otherwise it is binding
all uprights have this problem eventually
hair and fibers get in roller bushing and seize
luckily disassembling is relatively easy, same procedure as replacing the small belt that drives the roller. Take the extra step and take out the roller slip off bushings and clean everything
have fun

When the power head is turned on it goes from green light to red light and stops. The belt is fine and there is no obstructions in the brush to stop it from turning.


this will happen only when the brush or motor does not turn the right speed
make sure to pull the end caps off the brush and clean any hairs or fibers from it
the motor you can try and turn it by hand with out the belt on and see how free it is

Riccar model rad.7 upright (radiance). roller brush won't turn and red roller brush indicator is on. roller will turn easily by hand and belt is in place. how do i fix this?


As you already know, the red brush indicator light indicates that the brush roll has stopped turning, usually because an object has become stuck in the brush roll. When that happens you should turn the machine off (unplug it also for safety), remove the obstruction and turn the vac back on. That should have cleared the light and allowed your brush to turn again.
Occasionally, you will get debris in the brush roll end caps and the brush roll will spin slower making the sensor think there is an obstruction. You can remove the brush roll, pop the end caps off and clean out any debris to see if that helps.
If none of the above worked it is possible that the brush roll sensor is bad or the circuit board in the machine is bad. You'll need a Riccar service center for that. The good news is your Radiance has a 6 year warranty.
