Remove the screws holding the cover that holds the handle in to remove the handle. Reverse the procedure with the new handle.

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.

What kind of screw assembly is needed for the top cord holder piece on the Riccar 8900 vacuum cleaner?


There is an L shaped bolt that inserts into the hole in the handle, there are washers, a spring and a nut. I have all the items in my retail store. Most Riccar dealers will stock the items you may need.

How to change belt of riccar vacuum rsl3


Remove the bottom plate after laying the vacuum upside down, make sure it's not plugged in first. Pull the brush roll out of the nozzle housing, put the new belt around the motor shaft and then the brush roll, pull on the brush roll to give you enough leverage to install the brush roll back into place, reinstall the bottom plate.

Vacuumed a paper clip up in my Riccar vacum cleaner


It depends on which model and where the clip went. On most models it will just suck the clip right into the bag causing no harm to the vacuum. If you can't find it and don't hear any funny noises it probably will not cause any harm. You can have it checked out by your Riccar dealer to be sure.

Riccar vacuum Moon 1 just won't turn on, any ideas?


Check cord, esp at entry point. Otherwise it may be switch, motor windings burnt out, broken wire, carbon brushes worn. Some appliances also have a thermal fuse, which is a silver tube shape.

My Riccar 8850 stopped running. Changed the bag and cleared all hoses. Light comes on but the motor doesn't operate. I can turn the brush freely by hand.


Greetings from GoVacuum,

If the light on your Riccar 8850 is coming on, but the motor is not coming on, this indicates that your motor has gone bad. There is a reset switch on the back of the vacuum cleaner that sometimes trips if the bag is too full, or the filters are not maintained, but when this happens nothing on the vacuum comes on including the headlight. If the headlight is coming on, this indicates that electricity is making it down to the headlight, and the current is going through, but just not activating the motor. This is a tell tale sign of your motor being bad, and needing replacement. You can purchase the motor for the Riccar 8850 (12 AMP, 2 stage motor, Riccar part D113-1700 $122.44) from GoVacuum by giving us a call, as we don't yet have this part on our website.

I hope this helped you. We have been fixing Riccar's for over 30 years, and they are great vacuum cleaners, and the age of the model 8850 is probably the life expectancy of this vacuum cleaner.
