There is a clean out port on the back on the lower portion. Remove two screws to remove the cover to gain access to the air path from the floor to the bag. If this doesn't solve it you may have to remove the screws on the bottom which allow you to remove the cover of the nozzle assembly. There is a cover that goes from the floor to the direct air motor. Remove the screws to remove this cover which gains access to the air path and fan of the direct air motor. It's possible you may need to remove the direct air motor to clean out the fan if it has something stuck in there. This is not a job for the average person but if you are very mechanical you should be able to do it. If in doubt take it to your dealer. It is not very expensive to have done.

Riccar uses an external thermal reset which is more reliable than most brands which use a thermal reset built into the motor. On your Riccar it will be on the back on the bottom left. It is a little tiny button that you epwill hear "click" when you push on it if it has been popped. If not it will not push in and you won't hear the click. The older models did not all have a reset button. If you have to keep pushing the reset it means that most likely you have a clog somewhere or the bag is full. It's rare but occasionally a thermal reset button may go bad and need replaced.

2925 uses the same needle plate as 2910 and that manual is available at Riccar.com as a PDF file. I could email that file as I just downloaded it.

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.

Red light on means a clog or restriction somewhere. Have to find it.

If you remove three screws you can remove the assembly with the foot pedal. Look at how it is installed closely in the assembly, including the spring, shaft and pedal. Disassemble it and install a new foot pedal exactly the same way you took it apart.

You may have hair and debris in the endcaps or bearings of your brushroll causing a restriction. The belt sensor thinks you have something stuck in the brushroll so it shuts it off. It's a simple fix, if you can't figure out how to do it take it to your Riccar dealer.

First make sure the bobbin-winding spindle (located on top of your machine) has been pushed back to the left for sewing.
If it is not in the correct position, the needle will not go down and pick-up your bobbin thread.
Next make sure your needle is inserted correctly, with the flat side facing back.
Also, make sure your bobbin is in correctly
the upper tension disks of your machine are threaded correctly.
Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension.
Turn the handwheel towards you only and hold the needle thread lightly.
If this doesn't help solve your problem, the machine may have a timing problem.
