If the motor is real loud, then it is bad and will have to be replaced. Either the fan or motor bearings have gone bad.

The full bag light comes on when it is getting full or a blockage in the hose or the dirt inlet by the brush roll. Other then that, there is a circuit board called the computer controller, part #5740ER and is giving you a false reading and causing a shut down.

This is a problem with the hose, and unfortunately it will require replacement of the entire assembly.

The SES-125 hoses produced in the general vicinity of late 2002 had a tendency to start building up static and kicking the motor off after a few years. The problem was rectified, and the more current hoses do not have this problem.

Head to your friendly neighborhood Miele dealer and get a new hose, and this problem will not occur again.

SOURCE: Motor overheating

There is a filter on top of the motor as well. You will need to remove the plastic cover on top of the motor with a small screwdriver or other flat blade. On the front, you push in the clip and pull up ont he cover. On each side of the cover there is another clip - to pop those you put your flat blade into the angled tab and slide it around to the clip until it pops. Gently or you'll break the tab. Once the cover is off there is a purple tab in the center pull up and you will pull the HEPA motor filter out - similar in shape and size to the side, washable, filters. Clean or replace that.

In between the filters there's an access panel that can be removed - there may be a blockage there. You should also check your hose for a blockage.

Otherwise you may need to take it to your local Electrolux Service Center. There may be a problem with the pressure board. The machines have a 2 year warranty, not sure what it'd be in your neck of the woods.

Why has the vacuum cleaner lost power?


If by power loss you mean loss of suction power then I would check and either clean or replace ALL of the filters. Check and clean the rotating brushes and make sure all of the tubes are clear. Almost all suction loss is down to some form of blockage to the air passing through the cleaner and unless the air can pass freely through and exhaust properly, it will not pick up efficiently.

Stopped running. Filter was clogged. Cleaned filter and changed bag, but still won't start. Motor was warm when it stopped.


Hi There,

This sounds like the Thermal Switch in your motor tripped. All Riccar vacuum cleaners have a motor reset switch, that will shut the motor down when it gets hot. Usually it's caused by a full bag, clog, or dirty filter.

Try resetting the thermal switch first. If this doesn't work, you may have done some more serious damage to the motor, and it might be a good idea to take it into a local Riccar dealer in your area.

Here's a step by step guide on how to check the reset switch on your Riccar 8850:

To reset the thermal fuse:
  1. Unplug the vacuum cleaner
  2. Check for problem – over–filled bag, clog in hose, clogged filters, etc.
Remove the vacuum bag, and see if you can visibly see any obstructions, or replace the bag if it's full:

Also inspect the Secondary filter while you have the vacuum bag removed from the machine. If the filter is clogged or dirty, rinse under warm water, and air dry completely before reinstalling it into the vacuum. It's best to wash this filter every 30 days, and replace after 4-5 washings.

Here's a link to the secondary filter on our website if you ever need to purchase one:
Riccar 8800 Series Secondary Filter

Your Riccar 8850 also has a set of exhaust filters that are on the front of the vacuum, near the bottom where the upright body meets the agitator housing. These filters when clogged may also cause the thermal switch to trip. These filters are recommended to be replaced every 6-12 months, and are not recommended to be washed.

Here's a link to 2 sets of the exhaust filters for the Riccar 8850 on our website:
Riccar 8850 Exhaust Final Filters, 2 Sets, 4 Total Filters

It's also possible that you may have clog in the suction port inside of the agitator housing. Remove the bottom plate from the vacuum, and look for the tube that runs on the left hand side from the tray to the rear of the agitator housing. Make sure that this tube is clear from obstructions:

Locate "tripped" fuse – the small white button located on the bottom of the back side of
the main body (roughly one inch to the right of the left wheel)

Using a pencil, paper clip or other pointed object, push the reset button in, you should hear a clicking noise when it resets.

Plug the vacuum cleaner back into the wall, and try turning the vacuum on. It should come right back on. If not, it's best to take your machine into a local Riccar authorized repair facility for further more advanced diagnosing.

Vacuum cleaner shuts off after short use. What's the reason. Motor seems very hot.


Almost all vacuum cleaners have a thermal cut-out, which operates when the machine gets too hot. It resets automatically when it cools down. Overheating is almost always caused by a blockage. Either the filters need cleaning or changing, or there's an obstruction somewhere in the pipe-work. Make sure all the pipes are clear so there's good air flow and you should be back in business. If the problem persists there may be trouble with the motor itself, in which case you'll need professional help (or a new machine). Good luck!

Electrolux vacuum cleaner z4703 doesn't start


HI It could be the a number of issues.
The actual power switch could be at fault and needs replaced which has to be done by an official repairer.
OR if the vacuum cut out initially wait for a day and then try it again.
Also if the filters have been cleaned check that there is no dirt stopping the motor from coming on i.e. check the beater bar (remove the hood if neccessary) and check the drive belt is intact, also check all tubes to see there is no clogging.
If you have cleaned the filters you need to make sure they are dry rather than damp to wet as water seeping into a motor is very dangerous.

Bosch Vacuum Cleaner: I changed bag. Cleaned out all suction hose and hepa filters, however, my 1450 w 12 amp upright vacuum cleaner will die after five minute run - overheating. Please advise.


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

It sounds like you may have a bad thermal switch inside the machine. Most vacuum cleaners have a switch connected to the motor, so if the vacuum cleaner is running hot, it will shut off to prevent any damage to your motor. You did all the right things by checking the bag, making sure the hose was NOT clogged, and replacing HEPA filter.

Most of the time on canister vacuums, the reason is caused by a clog in the hose, or somewhere in the powerhead. If you're sure that there is no clog anywhere, it is going to be the thermal switch on the motor.

Here's a link to the parts schematic for the Bosch upright vacuum. I hope it helps you in determining how to access the thermal switch. A word of warning to you before you try it, this is a very tough vacuum cleaner to work on, you may want to bring it in to a vacuum repair shop, as this is not an easy repair.

Removing the hood to clean the cleaner
Posted by bfy1952 on Apr 08, 2008
How do I remove the cleaner hood the clear see thru plastic to clean under the hood?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover F5881-900 Vacuum. There may be 2 ways to remove the top cover. There are two screws located on the bottom and there are 2 ways that might work. The clear tube on Hoover’s sometimes will swivel and that is the way to bet the clear tube unclogged, or once you remove the 2 – 4 screws on the bottom the top should lift right off, and then you can serviced your vacuum cleaner. If you have questions you can always contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or call tech support @ the Hoover @ the factory and ask for tech support.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Water and clearen not coming out.


If the modle is an old modle the heater could be blocked,or if it a new modle try taking of the of the handle and ad a small shim to the bottom of the handle plunger to make it a little bit longer ,the plunger might not be reaching the valve,
also unscrew the clear cap which which is on top of the red spinner to see if the white filter under the spinner is clean and free from debris.
when you put the cap back on make sure its not to thigt and the spinner move freely, if the suction is poor make sure the red lint filter in the clean water tank is clean
