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 to fix floor pedal on riccar 8850


Your 8850 is probably over 15 years old, almost all parts are interchangeable with the 8955 or 8925 model made today. You may need to replace the pedal if the catch has worn or broken. There is no wire on the. Pedal assembly but there is a spring that goes on the pedal shaft to make the pedal spring back after you push on it.

How can I replace the belt on a Riccar Rad 8 model


Your belt should not need replaced unless it has over heated the belt somehow. It has a lifetime belt. There are screws on the bottom of the vacuum that allow the cover of the nozzle assembly to be removed to gain access to the belt area. It may be less cost in the long run to have it looked at by a Riccar repair technician.

Where is the reset button located?


Greetings from GoVacuum,

The reset buttons on the Riccar vacuum cleaners are located at the bottom of the vacuum cleaner in the back, underneath of where the wand sits on the vacuum cleaner.

Here's a picture of a Riccar 8925 which replaced your 8850 a few years ago, but the reset switch will be in the same exact location on all Riccar uprights;

Here's a closer look of the reset switch;

I hope that I was able to answer your question. You can avoid the reset switch flipping in the first place by always ensuring that you change the bags frequently and when full, as well as the motor filter that sits underneath of the bag. Also keeping the vacuum from clogging will prevent this.

If you found this repair solution helpful to you, may you please click the 4 Thumbs Up Icons in the top right hand corner to help me out here on Fixya? I really do appreciate it, thank you so much.
