Could very well be seizing due to lack of oil or buildup of lint, etc. Sergers generally require frequent oiling with fresh good quality oil (consult the manual). Continuing to force the motor to run when the machine is seized can burn up the motor.

The lower duct hose will come out by pulling it out at either end.

Remove the bottom plate to be able to pull the light bulb out and replace it.

Take off the bottom plate to gain access to the belt area.

Take the broken part to your Riccar dealer. The newer models have an upgraded more durable handle. You can get the upgrade for an older model.

Your belt should not need replaced unless it has over heated the belt somehow. It has a lifetime belt. There are screws on the bottom of the vacuum that allow the cover of the nozzle assembly to be removed to gain access to the belt area. It may be less cost in the long run to have it looked at by a Riccar repair technician.

Start by replacing the belt if it's over six months old. There is a clutch assembly that may have some wear. The clutch rubber pad assembly may be worn if the machine is old or has not been serviced.

The Brilliance has a lifetime belt but if it gets overheated it can get warped and comes off. Normally you do not need to replace the belt unless there is a problem. You have to remove the cover over the power nozzle assembly by removing the screws on the bottom. Notice how the belt goes around the motor shaft and through the "Hall Assembly" which is the spring loaded lever that detects a jam and shuts the brush roll motor off.

The red guard goes on top of the foam after it is installed. The purpose of the red guard is to keep the bag from sucking down against the filter when you get a few inches of dirt in the bottom of the bag. If it sucks down against the filter the dirt in the bag will cause an airlfow restriction even though the bag is not full.

Your 8625 is well over 20 years old. If it's been over a year since you've replaced the belt start with a new belt. Belts lose elasticity and should be replaced at least once or twice per year. The brush roll will still spin and appear to be working fine but when you put the brush roll onto the carpet it will stop spinning fast enough to clean the carpets.

The reset switch is on the back at the lower left corner.

The lower cord hook is held in by a screw removed with a phillips screwdriver. The upper cord hook has a nut on an "L" shaped bolt. The "L" goes through the hole in the handle. Reassemble the cord hook parts in the same way they were before.

Depending on the model, it may mean it's time for a filter change.;

Check the cord first then the switch .

The black wire goes to the switch, the white cord goes to the white wire in the vacuum.

Remove the dust compartment door to gain access to the cover over the wiring and switch compartment. Remove three screws to gain access to be able to remove the old power cord and slide it through the hole in the back of the vacuum. Put new cord through the hole and wire back up as it was before.
