Vacuum works perfectly, I just want any/all information I can get on unit. I know unit to be over 20 years old, but in new condition. (no books)

I just purchased a Royal upright vacuum, mdl B82T or 882T (first character not clear), S/N E910846878, amp 5.4, VAC 120, House Hold Type. Vacuum purchased at a thrift shop and from all indications, practically brand new. I would like to have/get any information--age, etc. Anyone help?

Why does the belt on a riccar vacuum keeps coming off?


The cause could be different depending on which model you have. Some models have stretch belts which should be replaced at least once per year because they lose elasticity. The most common problem I've found with Riccar vacuums is the belt coming off when a new belt is installed on an older model. Riccar vacuums are very well built and many owners use their vacuum for many years without having it serviced. I recently had a 17 year old Riccar Vibrance model brought in for service because the belt crumbled to pieces. The vacuum had the original belt and filters. Putting a tight new belt on the vacuum pulls on the motor because it must be stretched so much. After many hours and years of use screws may need tightened up and motor mounts and pivot points can become worn.
If your model is a few years old or is used heavily I suggest having it inspected by a qualified Riccar service center. A properly maintained Riccar vacuum can last 10 or even 20 years. A few dollars spent on maintaining it can add years to the usable life.

How do I replace the belt on my ricaar model 8750 vacuum?


Remove the bottom plate to access the brush roll. Remove the brush roll to install a new belt. Your
model is over 20 years old. If it has never been Professionally serviced it may be wise to take it to a Riccar dealer for service. It could add many more years of life to your vacuum.

The motor on our Nytone CV-350 is shot. Should I buy a new motor or replace the unit?


It depends on the age and condition of the rest of the vacuum and accessories. Check out the hose and power nozzle especially. If these look well worn, replace the unit. If it's a no more than years old, I'd simply replace the motor. Again, it depends on the condition, or expected "life" of the other components.

Motor to my electrolux centralvacuum has burned out .Is it a good idea to just replace motor?


Replacing the motor yourself voids the warranty on the motor (1 year). You can take it to an authorized Electrolux (now Aerus) service center and let them replace generally for only the cost of the motor.
Replacing the entire unit will give you a 5 year warranty on the unit, including motor and fan assembly.
I don't know how old your unit is, but if more than 20 years you might consider replacing it due to updates in the other components and potential of them becoming obsolete.

Miele s314 red star-motor stopped working-on/off switch broken?


Most likely the problem is with the cord winder. This is the most common problem with Mieles. It is actually the most common problem with any vacuum with a cord winder. A Miele repair center should not change you to look at the vacuum and tell you what is wrong with it. The Red Star was a great model and if the powerhead is still in goood condition I would get the vacuum repaired. If it is the cordwinder they can usually be repaired and it should cost about $75.00. If you need a new cord winder this will cost about $150.00. The top piece can be pryed off, however if it feels like it is switching than it is not jammed.

Vacuum working perfectly and everything stopped. Went to the utility room and found a plastic bag on top of the equipment. Tried the reset button, etc. nothing works.


sounds like a bad relay in the tank just a simple repair but should be done by a vacuum tech or electrician. Could be a motor is nothing is starting at all, but not as likely.

Motor for Eureka upright model 2315, new in 1977


If the motor is obsolete which it appears to be, have you considered repair?

Write my shop at service@emrrepair.com, with enough information on the failure mode we can get you a close estimate, some of these older vacuums just cannot be beat, for performance, power, etc, We traditionally do not do retail work, but with the current conditions, and woodburning stove blowers rendering perfectly good stoves into land fills, and replacement costs of over $3000,. we have repaired many blowers and fire eyes from $50.00 to $159.00, it all depends on the degree of damage, but we are trying our hardest to salvage some very nice older equipment, let us know, references or see me at allexperts.com.

Check the motor brushes, they may be worn down and not making contact with the armature. There may also be relays and one could be bad.

My old Tristar canister vac.


If you have a voltage meter you could see where the problem lies. All TriStar parts including the motors, both the nozzle head motor and the actual vacuum motor are purchaseable online through www.totalvac.com
I have ordered parts through them and everything arrives no problem and they are priced nicely by the way.
