Question about Riccar Vacuums
It has lost suction while using the hose. hose is clear, bag is changed, and i cleaned the filter under the bag. there is suction when not using the hose, however.

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.

SOURCE: no suction
Replace your belt. Remove the baseplate, remove the brushroll, place a new belt around the motor pulley, then around the pulley on the brushroll, and pull the brushroll back into place in the nozzle. Spin it by hand to make sure it spins, (otherwise you'll break the belt again,) and then replace the baseplate. Party.

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.
