How to take apart riccar model stine.1

The engine smells hot and I know the kids missed putting a bag in one time. Also, we never knew about the 2nd filter until my son tried to take it apart. Bad salesman right there!! We need to get into the motor compartment to super clean it.

SOURCE: Won't start.

There is a reset button at the back of the powerhead. The user manual can be downloaded from the electrolux website, although I didn't find it very useful. There was some info on how to change the powerhead drive belt.

Model 116 hose clog?
Posted by rfrazelle on Jun 23, 2008
My old canister model 116 followed with numbers 2839580 marked Kenmore 3.9 with power-mate, worked fine until the bag got overly full. I have changed the bag, cleaned the filter, and removed a nasty hair/fur/dust clog :-p from the lower metal tube of the power mate. It now has very weak suction and won't pick up anything. I suspect a clog in the grey plastic flexible tubing attached to the canister but cannot get it apart. Advice?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Kenmore 22313 Bagged Canister Vacuum. The best way to find a clog in an electric hose is to use a steel ball or a large marble to place inside the hose and to let it so threw as far as it can to determine where the hose clog is. Once you have determined where the hose clog is then you can use a small end of a broom handle of take an old wire coat hanger and place a hook on the end and try to pull the clog out of the electric hose – the electric hose is very expensive so try not to damage the hose in any way, shape or form. Or another way is that id you have another canister vacuum you can try to pull the clog apart by using two vacuums turned on and running. If you are successful then run the round marble or steel ball thru the hose again and the clog should be cleared.

SOURCE: burning smell

I had burning smell and some visible smoke which I tracked down to the handle area. The mains socket at the bottom of the handle had burned out. When I pulled the plug out I noticed that the prongs were blackened and scorched. I will replace the socket.

Any reputable vacuum cleaner repair shop can check it for you. It will have to be a multi brand shop, nit a Kirby, or Electrolux thpe. They are dealers and only repair their own brand.

I purchased a riccar 2150L second hand with no information. I have a 10yr old riccar supralite and love it! But the 2150L looks older. I am curious what the age of riccar 2150L vacuum is.


Your m
2150 L is likely 25 to 30 years old. The first Riccar vacuums were made in Japan. Your was likely made in Taiwan. Production of most models was brought to St. James, MO 20 years ago. Filters, bags and some parts are still available from your local Riccar dealer, or from ThatVacGuy.com

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 8995 no suction


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.

After changing the bag on my riccar it is very hard to push'


after putting a clean bag into the vacuum cleaner, more air can get through it, so it generates more vacuum, sp it is obvious, that it will be harder to push for some time. if it wont get better, it only means you didnt gt it with a clean airbag

The switch to my Riccar 1500p hose is broken for the 2nd time. I don't want to replace the entire hose again, where can i get the switch and leads?


Take the screws out to take the handle apart. Remove the switch and take it to your hardware or local vacuum to to get the correct replacement.

How do I find the opening to change the bag on the Riccar RC 1100


Just above the hole where the hose goes there's a squarish part to where your hand should go. It should just pull upwards.

Lost suction after I changed the bag and cleaned the air filter


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.
