No suction, but agitator was spinning and free of debris. Filters were clean. Finally disconnected both ends of the hose and discovered a giant fiber ball clog, the result of a new area rug shedding. Pushed it free with a broom handle.

Troubleshooting Guide:

1. Check to make sure the agitator is still spinning. (Agitator = Brush)

- If agitator does not spin, you probably have a broken belt.

--How to get to the belt/agitator: There should be 2 screws on the bottom of the vacuum holding the bottom cover onto the unit. Unscrew these and pop off the cover.

2. If the belt is fine, clean off any debris on the agitator and the bearings on the agitator.

3. Third possibility are dirty filters or a clogged vacuum.

- You can clean the filters are replace them with new ones.

-- If there is a clog in the vacuum, insert a pipe cleaner into the opening of where the debris goes into the vacuum; usually located to the side of the motor.

Hopefully this solves your problem. If you run into any more issues or this does not solve your problem, feel free to message me on here or email me at dalee.xiong@mail.com

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.

How to for Belt replacement and solution to suction loss


You say it lost its suction, then you also say this is plenty of suction power, seems you cant figure out the prob. Try cleaning the fan on the suction blower. The blades can get chocked with dust which will give you a reduced suction.
