Usually there is a red reset button to push on top of the power head, but some are on the back edge of the powerhead.

There is a hole at the back of the powerhead near the height adjustment lever. Just put something slender in the hole like a screw driver to reset.

My Fuller Brush FB90T Bagged Upright Vacuum shutdown during vacuuming. I allowed it to cool off for a 24 hours but it will now no longer restart. Is there a reset function?


Check if there is debri at the bottom behind the roller where the dust gets sucked in. There is a reset button in this area. Press it with a needle or pen tip. Hold it for about 5 seconds.

There is a overburn protection if their is obstruction in the hose due to which the vacuum shuts down. Resetting it will fix this issue

Did you press the reset button? There will be a reset button either on the back of the unit just below the bulkhead or on the top side of the base.

Locate the reset button and press; this should allow the carpet attachment to resume operation.

The motorized wand attachment keeps shutting down after 10 to 15 seconds after pushing the red reset button. I've thoroughly cleaned dirt/debris from around motor. Do I need a new reset switch? Thanks,...


either the reset is bad or the motor is drawing too many amps and tripping the reset. Do you have an amp meter? Check the amps being pulled by the wand attatchment against the load recommended by the manufature, this is usually located on a plate somewhere either on the wand or the canister.

I have a kenmore progressive vacuum with a belt reset button that trips out everytime you try to vacuum. It does it in about 5 to 10 seconds. Can I bypass the reset button or can you help me determine...


A lot of times the reset button is tripping because there is a problem. The problem could be with the brush roller in this case. A lot of times I see this unit for repair and the end of the brush is so compacted with hair and debris that it has also started to melt. This will also "fool" the reset and trip off. If you are near a service depot try there, or try sears parts if you need to have the brush roller replaced.

Bypassing the reset button is not advisable on any machine.

Power head will not work


Greetings from GoVacuum,

Try pushing the Overload Reset Button which is located on the power nozzle, near where the height adjustment window is. It should be a grey button that says Overload Reset Switch. If you push down on this button, it should reset the power head. This feature is put on the vacuum cleaner to protect the belt from burning out when you accidentally vacuum something into it.

9 times out of 10 this is the reason why your power head is not working.

I hope that this was able to fix your vacuum cleaner. If it didn't, I certainly am more then happy to try and diagnose the problem fruther with you. Please feel free to contact me by requesting a "Clarification Request" here on Fixya, or just sending me an email to chris.jones (at) govacuum (dot) com.

Where is the reset button located?


Greetings from GoVacuum,

The reset buttons on the Riccar vacuum cleaners are located at the bottom of the vacuum cleaner in the back, underneath of where the wand sits on the vacuum cleaner.

Here's a picture of a Riccar 8925 which replaced your 8850 a few years ago, but the reset switch will be in the same exact location on all Riccar uprights;

Here's a closer look of the reset switch;

I hope that I was able to answer your question. You can avoid the reset switch flipping in the first place by always ensuring that you change the bags frequently and when full, as well as the motor filter that sits underneath of the bag. Also keeping the vacuum from clogging will prevent this.

If you found this repair solution helpful to you, may you please click the 4 Thumbs Up Icons in the top right hand corner to help me out here on Fixya? I really do appreciate it, thank you so much.

Reset button for Eureka 431 bagless upright???Where is it?!


If the red light is one the says "check brushroll" then you have to take it apart to find out what the problem is. It might be that the roll has too much stuff rapped around it so you have to take it out and clean. It could also be the rubber belt is not properly in place. Once you take the bottom off the belt should go on the far right side. Those are the only things i can think of. I have had mine for 3 years and have never seen a reset switch. Usually when my light comes on it is because there is a lot of hair rapped around my brush roll.
