Question about Riccar 8955 Upright Vacuum
The "belt" is normally the drive device that turns the beater brush found on the bottom front of the vacuum. Its purpose is to beat the rug and cause dirt and debris to rise up from the carpeting and be sucked into the vacuum. If the belt is missing, you may not see it. If the belt is in place, it will loop around the beater brush and back to a drive motor. Since belts can break on a regular basis any covers over it should be easy to remove via small slide levers or at most by removing a few screws from the bottom of the vacuum. The new belt must be attached properly in order for the brush to move in the correct direction. If you are going to replace the belt it is probably a good time to clean the beater brush and lubricate the end pieces of the brush with some WD40 as well.
