Just above the hole where the hose goes there's a squarish part to where your hand should go. It should just pull upwards.

Where is the thermal reset button


Riccar uses an external thermal reset which is more reliable than most brands which use a thermal reset built into the motor. On your Riccar it will be on the back on the bottom left. It is a little tiny button that you epwill hear "click" when you push on it if it has been popped. If not it will not push in and you won't hear the click. The older models did not all have a reset button. If you have to keep pushing the reset it means that most likely you have a clog somewhere or the bag is full. It's rare but occasionally a thermal reset button may go bad and need replaced.

Riccar 8995 no suction


I think you mean it's an 8955, Riccar has not had a 8995 model. If there is no suction in the hose it has to have something clogging it. Open the little round opening on the back of the vacuum where the hose attaches to see if you have suction there.

Riccar sunburst vacuum wheel


There are little prongs that hold the wheel on. New wheels are inexpensive if it needs to be replaced. Break the prongs off with a skinny screwdriver to remove the wheel. The new wheel will just snap in place.

Lost suction after I changed the bag and cleaned the air filter


The bag has a cardboard collar with latex. It must seal over the inlet. Make sure not to tear the bag when replacing.

Is the cover closing properly? The cover seals against a gasket. The same with the filter.

Riccar 1700 power nozzle wont turn on


Make sure the 'Power brush' switch on the contol panel on the hose is depressed. Check the circuit breaker on the power nozzle; it will either be a button or a breaker that looks like a rocker switch, try to reset it.
Is the power nozzle motor running but the brush just isn't turning? If so you may have a broken belt. Not a likely solution since the belt is a lifetime belt, but still remotely possible.

Riccar rc1100 won't turn off


I am an riccar dealer, and you either have a short in the wire leads from front of vacuum to circuit board or a bad circuit board which if so the boardd will have to be sent to manufacture to be rebuilt as there are no new circuit boards available. if not under warrenty which i doubt since riccar hasnt made these models for a while. would recomend replacement with either sunburst or moonlight model as they are a comparable replacement to the repair. or just simply just plug and unplug machine, if it doesnt bother you to do so. If more questions email me at drago640@yahoo.com subject riccar, or go to www.riccar.com to locate nearest dealer
