Why wont the reset button depress on riccar 8955 or turn on after trying


The reset button does not have a significant amount of movement in response to pressing to with a paper clip or ball point pen. If the vacuum does not start upon pressing the button, then either the thermal protection circuit is not why the vacuum stopped in the first place or the reason the thermal protection circuit tripped has not been cleared. Quoting from the manual


"Your Riccar vacuum cleaner comes equipped with a Manual Reset Thermal Fuse Protector. This thermal protector is designed to protect your vacuum cleaner from overheating due to a restriction in airflow (i.e. clogged hose, operating the vacuum without a bag). Should this situation occur, the thermal fuse protector will safely shut off the vacuum cleaner to avoid any potential damage. NOTE: To determine it was the thermal fuse protector that turned off your vacuum
cleaner, please refer to the vacuum cleaner's headlight. If the headlight is on while the motor is off, then the thermal fuse protector did safely shut down the motor. If both the headlight and motor are off, then there is some reason other than the thermal protector (i.e. pulled plug) your vacuum is off.
To reset the thermal fuse:
. Unplug the vacuum cleaner

  1. Check for problem - over-filled bag, clog in hose, clogged filters, etc.
  2. Correct problem
  3. 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)
  4. Using a pencil, paper clip or other pointed object, push the reset button in
  5. Plug vacuum cleaner in and resume use"

Brush doesnt turn


Look for the reset button on the side of the brushbar housing - there should be a red sticker and a red button. Push it once. It's
not gonna stay depressed, it's gonna pop right out - that's normal.
- Step on the red pedal on the back
- Turn the machine on with the red power button
- Press the gray button next to the red power button - this is the ON/OFF switch for the brushbar - if it doesn't spin, press and hold the gray button down for 10 seconds
- If it still isn't spinning, remove the brushbar and make sure nothing is blocking it and withholding it from spinning
this link is for the manual..

Hi, pressing the big red foot button on the dc25 lowers the cleaner to the working position,but it wont stand up again. would appreciate some help. thanks. TC


sounds like the ball cradle is worn out, the springs are too stretched to pull the handle release pedal back into place. you can do one of two things, replace the cradle assy, or just lift the red pedal up when you raise the handle

Beater bar will not turn


Something probably got caught in the beater bar whilst you were vacuuming, that'll cause it to stop itself so that it doesn't cause any further damage, solution:
- make sure the beater bar is clear of obstructions
- step on the red pedal on the back and recline the handle
- turn the machine on with the red power button
- press the gray button next to the red power button, this is the beater bar's ON/OFF button
- if it still doesn't turn, press and hold the gray button down for 10 seconds
- if after this it still doesn't turn, inspect the beater bar again and make sure there are no obstructions and if there aren't, call the Dyson Helpline, they will set you up with a repair with the closest authorized repair dealer in your area

Rainbow vac ESeries brush stopped spinning


If you have tried to press the red button on the top of power nozzle and it is still not working, try opening the bottom to see about loose wire, check receptacle that plugs into rainbow, if neither of those are the problem than it may be you need a new motor. Should not really be an arm and a leg.
