Hi There,

Here's a very helpful repair that I did exactly for your problem on how to replace the belt on your Riccar. Your model, the 8955 is more difficult then other models due to the rug/floor selector knob. No worries though, I explained this step by step with pictures.

Hopefully this helps you,

Unable to replace belt


On most machines you have to remove the bottom plate to replace the belt. Simply remove the screws, take out the old belt, put the new one around the motor shaft, then around the brush roll and stretch into place.

Replace belt


On the bottom, there should be a few screws to remove to remove the plate covering the brush roll. However some may have screws on the top housing to remove the top.
