SOURCE: No suction in upright position

Check the adapters at the bottom. They're supposed to move cleanly when you lower the handle. It's pretty obvious if there's an air gap when you lower the handle, and you should hear the suction in the air gap.

And...call Dyson...their support is great!

SOURCE: Brush won't spin when position of handle changes

The belt for this machine is very specific and only one size fits. It is not uncommon for vac shops to sell the wrong belt because the proper belt is not available from normal supply houses, so they will substitute something they think will work.

Also, assuming you do have the right belt, check the tension arm that drops down on the v-belt when the handle is brought back. This arm has a wheel/bearing with a plastic "tire" or trim that rolls on the belt to tighten it. Sometimes, this tire cracks and falls off and then the remaining bearing won't have the necessary tension to tighten up the belt.

SOURCE: beater bar on Dyson upright won't turn when handle is lowered

I have finally fixed my sister's dyson dc 15 beater bar problem. It was just 2 tiny broken wires connect to circuit board lead to the beater bar. The wires broke where they go through the black rubber gommet. You need a torx screwdriver tx 15 to remove 2 plastic covers to access the wires. When looking at the front of the vacuum, the gray covers located on the right side of the vacuum. 1 big cover with a black rubber gasket and other small gray cover is on the rotating ball area.
This my new year resolution is to warn people not to buy Dyson vacuum cleaner ( Junk) design to break down! Shame on you Dyson!!!! Save your money find good old vacuum cleaner with metal parts.

OLD IS IN NEW IS JUNK!

Happy New Year!

The cord is attached to the handle. Putting the handle up is probably stretching or pulling on the cord. The cord may be bad or where the cord goes into the vacuum is called the switch. The cord may not be making go do contact with the switch, check these areas first

Faulty switch


Your 8650 is an old vacuum. The switch is in the part of the vacuum where the handle goes down into. When you push the lever on the handle it activates the switch. To get to the switch take off the dust cover, remove the three Screws on the small cover where the handle goes in to see the switch. On older Riccar vacuums like yours sometimes the screw holding the handle in is loose which can cause the switch to not Always engage properly. To test this turn the vacuum on and wiggle the handle. If the vacuum vacuum cuts out you may only need to tighten the handle screw.

The shut off switch is stuck to the on position


This sounds like you have an internal problem with the electrical switch. I would recommend you take it to a vacuum dealer who has experience with this model. This is a relatively simple reapir for a pro shop to handle.
