Sounds like the motor is trying to run but the other machine parts are not moving. If your machine is an older mechanical (not computerized), then it's very possible the machine has seized due to lack of regular cleaning and oiling. Avoid trying to run the machine in this condition as it can damage the motor.

Where could I get a back looper for a Riccar rl-924dr

Increase the top tension. It should pull up the bobbin thread into the fabric.

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

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.

Your 8955 could be as old as 18 yrs. Try tightening the screw holding the handle in, it could be loose allowing the handle to move back and forth enough to keep the switch from activating.
If it's an older vacuum or is used heavily it could have cracks in the body where the handle screw attaches or some damage inside the vacuum body where the handle bottom goes into.
If that doesn't help, Remove the bag door, remove the screws at the top to remove the cover to gain access to the area where the switch and wiring is located to inspect for the cause. When you push the lever at the top of the handle a lever going down activates the switch. It doesn't take much play in the handle to make the switch go on and off.

Sorry to say, but usually misthreading is the culprit. The machine must be threaded "each thread" in the correct order (usually upper looper first, then lower looper) and following the correct threadpath. Also, the presser foot should ALWAYS be raised when threading. Give each thread an extra little tug (grasp thread below the thread tree and also below the tension disk) to make sure it seats completely.

Even if it's not your model machine, the threading instructions and basic use would be similar.

The armature should be cleaned and dressed when the brushes are replaced as they get full of carbon and can spark.
