Question about Riccar 8850 Vacuum
The roller beater bar does not spin with the belt
Posted by Anonymous on
The belt has probably lost elasticity or the clutch needs adjusted or a new rubber pad.

I see this same problem posted repeatedly here. The only solutions offered are to "change the belt". When most people state that they've changed the belt and still have the same problem the recommendation is usually "are you sure you changed the belt correctly?".
Bogus. This is a major design issue with the Riccar 8800 series vacuums. It has something to do with the roller and clutch assembly. Either people must replace these every 3-4 months, as they fail at a cost of $50+, or there is another solution and this solution is something other than "change the belt".
