The bearings in the brush roll can be replaced if. It has the metal brush roll. Remove the cotter pin to remove end caps and remove the shaft. Remove the plastic bearing holder on the belt end or the metal bearing holder on. The other end.

Why does the belt on a riccar vacuum keeps coming off?


The cause could be different depending on which model you have. Some models have stretch belts which should be replaced at least once per year because they lose elasticity. The most common problem I've found with Riccar vacuums is the belt coming off when a new belt is installed on an older model. Riccar vacuums are very well built and many owners use their vacuum for many years without having it serviced. I recently had a 17 year old Riccar Vibrance model brought in for service because the belt crumbled to pieces. The vacuum had the original belt and filters. Putting a tight new belt on the vacuum pulls on the motor because it must be stretched so much. After many hours and years of use screws may need tightened up and motor mounts and pivot points can become worn.
If your model is a few years old or is used heavily I suggest having it inspected by a qualified Riccar service center. A properly maintained Riccar vacuum can last 10 or even 20 years. A few dollars spent on maintaining it can add years to the usable life.

How do you replace a vacuum hose on a Riccar upright Vacuum.


Riccar Tandem Air models have a hose that has releases to push to remove the hose. Most Vibrance & 8000 series and older series vacuums have the hose attached to a swivel on the back of the vacuum. The hose can be unscrewed from the swivel. To remove the swivel you need to remove the vacuum bag inside the dust compartment, you must compress the tabs holding the swivel to the body to be able to pull it out.

I can't reset my thermal reset button on my Riccar Brilliance


You may have hair and debris in the endcaps or bearings of your brushroll causing a restriction. The belt sensor thinks you have something stuck in the brushroll so it shuts it off. It's a simple fix, if you can't figure out how to do it take it to your Riccar dealer.

Riccar supralite makes a loud rattling noise like the roller is banging around


If the noise is not something in the brush roll or the brush roll bearings or shaft is damaged the impeller may have something stuck in it or it may be broken.

I have a riccar vibrance red vacuum, just purchased with in 6 months and the roller brush wont go on and the reset button doesn't seem to push in or work I now live in Hankinson, ND 58041...there is a...


The reset button only pops out if the vacuum motor overheats. It does not affect the brush roll. If the motor is running the problem is most likely a broken or stretched belt.

Belt on Riccar 8850 is slipping off motor shaft.


NO! there is usually a fan attached to the motor. i have found that junk gets in there and will cause it to viberate. otherwise check the brushroll. there will be connectors on each side with a bearing. if the plastic looks melted, replace the brushroll
