Most Riccar's, turn vac over, take off the bottom plate, Brush roll and belt are there. Put new belt over motor shaft, then over brush roll, push brush roll back into place and re-install bottom plate.

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.

Riccar upright beater bar won't spin


Start by replacing the belt. Stretch belts should be replaced at least once per year because they lose elasticity. If that doesn't solve it have it check out by your Riccar dealer. It may be the clutch pad or might need adjusted.

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.

No suction on carpets


The reason it doesn't pick up on the carpets is because the belt is stretched or worn and can't turn the roller brush against the resistance of the carpet. Here is a link to the replacement belts you need:
