Having problems with your Riccar 8650/8625 s Vacuum ?

Faulty switch how do I replace the switch & what switch do I need


Answers :

Your 8650 is an old vacuum. The switch is in the part of the vacuum where the handle goes down into. When you push the lever on the handle it activates the switch. To get to the switch take off the dust cover, remove the three Screws on the small cover where the handle goes in to see the switch. On older Riccar vacuums like yours sometimes the screw holding the handle in is loose which can cause the switch to not Always engage properly. To test this turn the vacuum on and wiggle the handle. If the vacuum vacuum cuts out you may only need to tighten the handle screw.

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,
