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.

Lost suction after I changed the bag and cleaned the air filter

The bag has a cardboard collar with latex. It must seal over the inlet. Make sure not to tear the bag when replacing.

Is the cover closing properly? The cover seals against a gasket. The same with the filter.
