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)

I can't reset my thermal reset button on my Riccar Brilliance


You may have hair and debris in the endcaps or bearings of your brushroll causing a restriction. The belt sensor thinks you have something stuck in the brushroll so it shuts it off. It's a simple fix, if you can't figure out how to do it take it to your Riccar dealer.

Why wont the reset button depress on riccar 8955 or turn on after trying


The reset button does not have a significant amount of movement in response to pressing to with a paper clip or ball point pen. If the vacuum does not start upon pressing the button, then either the thermal protection circuit is not why the vacuum stopped in the first place or the reason the thermal protection circuit tripped has not been cleared. Quoting from the manual


"Your Riccar vacuum cleaner comes equipped with a Manual Reset Thermal Fuse Protector. This thermal protector is designed to protect your vacuum cleaner from overheating due to a restriction in airflow (i.e. clogged hose, operating the vacuum without a bag). Should this situation occur, the thermal fuse protector will safely shut off the vacuum cleaner to avoid any potential damage. NOTE: To determine it was the thermal fuse protector that turned off your vacuum
cleaner, please refer to the vacuum cleaner's headlight. If the headlight is on while the motor is off, then the thermal fuse protector did safely shut down the motor. If both the headlight and motor are off, then there is some reason other than the thermal protector (i.e. pulled plug) your vacuum is off.
To reset the thermal fuse:
. Unplug the vacuum cleaner

  1. Check for problem - over-filled bag, clog in hose, clogged filters, etc.
  2. Correct problem
  3. Locate "tripped" fuse - the small white button located on the bottom of the back side of the main body (roughly one inch to the right of the left wheel)
  4. Using a pencil, paper clip or other pointed object, push the reset button in
  5. Plug vacuum cleaner in and resume use"

Replacing riccar 4812 hose


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.

The unit is not sucking anything up. checked for possible clogs in the hose - all clear. Took base off and cleared the bottom hose - put all back together and still not cleaning anything up.


There may be a screen filter beneath the bag that's clogged. Remove the bag, check, and clean if necessary.
Also, check the power head above/behind the brush. Things sometimes get caught in the tube between the brush and the hose.
There may also be holes or cracks in the hose will also reduce the "suction".
If these aren't the problem, take the vacuum to a repair shop, preferrably an authorized Riccar store.

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.

Riccar 1500p vacuum won't start


it has a thermal fuse that shuts it down if it over heats. Check the hose , wands and floor tool for blockage and check your bag and filters as well.
