Hi,

If this problem happened after you replaced the filters, check that the filters have been installed correctly because some filters have sensor magnets installed on them and unless they are in their correct position, the machine wont power on.

I hope this helps you

My Riccar vacuum was working but then just stopped and won't turn on. I changed the bag even. What's up?


Hi Patty.
Could be:
Power cord. Check esp. strain-relief where cord enters housing.
On/off power switch. Needs strip down & continuity check.
Motor burnt out. Smell if burnt. Strip search.
Carbon brushes inside motor worn. Dismantle & check / renew.
Does this help?
Regards, Clive.

Riccar 4000 series. Need to replace power cord. How do I get to motor? Do I need special tool because some screws are deep & have small opening so can't see screw head type.


One screw on back of handle will allow handle to slide off with some force. Two screws on front above bag door will allow small cover to come off allowing access to where cord connects inside vacuum.

Replace power cord on riccar 8955


Remove the bag door cover, remove the screws holding the cover over the switch and wires coming into the body of the vacuum. Remove two screws holding the cord in place, unhook the old cord and install the new one the same way the old on was

Is there a reset button


The reset button is internal. If it overheats it will shut off but will come back on when it cools down. This usually means you have a clog somewhere or a clogged bag or filter. If that doesn't take care of it have it checked by your Riccar dealer.

Can you buy new contacts for a other wise good cord reel in my 1700 riccar


No. I've never seen contacts go bad on one. You might be able to bend them some so they make contact.

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.

I have a Riccar 8750, when I plug it in any outlet and turn on the headlight does not come on and the vacuum does not turn on. The reset button does not seem to help. It worked fine when I shut it off last...


An 8750 is likely at least 20 years old but still may have lots of life left. I still have 8600 series Riccar vacuums brought in to my vacuum shop for service. You may have a loose wire, bad switch or power cord. I would take it to my local Riccar dealer to diagnose and repair.

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.
