Having problems with your Riccar 8955 Upright Vacuum ?
Had a bad place on the chord about 6 feet from the end, cut the chord back to that point, put on a new plug but now it won't turn on.
Is there a reset switch or fuse somewhere?
Yes, there is. It's a small white button located near on the back, near the left wheel. Unplug vacuum, then use the end of a paper clip to push in and reset.

I have a Eureka Upright vacuum (4800 Series). When I try to start it by turning the switch on, it wont. For few days, I was able to get around this problem by repeatedly turning the switch on and off until it turned on but that does not work any more. Could it be something related to the switch it self or the power cable. My wife mentioned that one of my kids might have pulled the power cable too hard (at the back of the vacuum). Any help to solve this problem will be very much appreciated. Tha

I was using my easy flow central vacuum, and shut it off. When I went to start it up again 5 min later, it would not turn on. I emptied out the filter, and reset the switch. When the reset button was pushed, it started up the vacuum, but the vacuum was not turned on in the house. It can only be turned on from in the garage and not on the actual hose. What is going on?

Power nozzle on E-series won't start when cold unless the red 'reset' button is pressed multiple times while also holding the trigger to 'warm it up'...this is w/the power nozzle off the floor - no restriction on it turning. Once it's been running and then turned off the button must be pressed w/the trigger to get it to run - again w/the nozzle off the floor. It also seems to shut off too easily while vacuuming. I replaced the motor,which didn't fix it. Is the reset switch next on my list? T
