Having problems with your Riccar 8850 Vacuum ?
Belt on Riccar 8850 is slipping off motor shaft.
\015 Have installed new belt, was told that "motor is out of alignment" and will need a kit installed, new bushings and such $75+. Does this sound\015\012legit?\015
NO! there is usually a fan attached to the motor. i have found that junk gets in there and will cause it to viberate. otherwise check the brushroll. there will be connectors on each side with a bearing. if the plastic looks melted, replace the brushroll

I have a Eureka 4870GZ. It turns on, but the brush roller doesn't move. The belt looks fine. I do have an extra belt and would try replacing the old belt, but I can't get the old one off the motor shaft or the new one on. I called Eureka customer service. The lady said there's supposed to be a small space between the motor shaft and the outside edge of the vacuum where I can slip the old belt off and the new one on. I don't see it. It looks like the motor shaft goes into a recessed place in the

The belt on my used Eureka Boss 5857 upright slips off the end of the motor shaft every time the vacuum is used. When I turn the brush roll slowly by hand, the belt walks toward the end of the shaft. It looks like there was a plastic projection from the base that snapped off, and maybe that plastic piece used to block the belt from falling off. Do I need to try to reconstruct that plastic piece, or is something else wrong?

On several occasions the belt has come off the Hoover Windtunnel beater shaft and had to be re-installed. Is there any way to prevent it from slipping off? The shaft seems to be made so that the middle if it is wider(thicker than either the end or the part closer to the motor, which, to me, is a bad design so I don't know how to overcome this problem. I'd be very grateful for a permanent solution to this problem. Thanks in Advance, mas

I have a Kirby Dual Sanitronic '50' Vacuum Cleaner I bought in 1966. The motor does not start when I attach the belt lifter of the rug nozzle. When I remove the rug nozzle and detach the belt from the motor fan shaft the motor starts when I depress the nozzle switch and the power switch . Seems like the brushes in the motor are worn out. I do not have a manual for this unit. Can you assist me as to what newer unit is this compatible to and the problem I'm having at present??

My Sharp EC-l2TWT4 throws belts and I noticed the motor shaft was not running straight. My wife took it to my local dealer in Brainerd,Mn and they said it was fine.So I took it apart and found the plastic motor housing had melted at some point letting the motor twist out of alignment. Other than this, everything works great.Can I order this plastic housing piece somewhere?
I checked the schematics for that model and the motor housing for that model is no longer available. Your best bet is to either attempt to find a used part or trade it in and get a new unit.

Replacing a belt on the Riccar 8850...I see how the brush assembly will work with the new belt. But I don't see how a new belt will turn on the small rod extending from the motor. Is there a pully missing?
There is not a pulley missing, when the belt is tight the shaft will turn the belt but when the belt loses elasticity it will slip on the shaft when being used on the carpet. Replace the n\012belt at least once or twice per year. ... Riccar 8850 Vacuum

My bissell 6590 works fine with hose attachment. Motor shaft turns when belt and roller are off. When belt and roller are on it's noisy and smelly. Now one end of the roller actually melted in the holding slot. Do these rollers wear out like this or should I be looking for another problem.
