The clutch has to be adjusted occasionally and the rubber pad holder sometimes wears out after 5 or 10 years of use. If you can't figure out why it's not working properly take it to your dealer.

How do I change a belt in a Riccar vacuum


Remove the screws holding the bottom plate on. Remove bottom plate. If it's an 8955 or model with clutch to shut off the brush roll remove the rod that goes from the lever to the clutch. Look closely how the rod and brush roll are positioned in the vacuum so you can reinstall it the same way. Remove the brush roll and install the new belt and then put back together as it was.

Upright beater brush will not turn


Start by replacing the belt if it's over six months old. There is a clutch assembly that may have some wear. The clutch rubber pad assembly may be worn if the machine is old or has not been serviced.
