Having problems with your Riccar Vacuums ?
Screw fell out of Sunburst -- Can't see how to open to replace.
\015 A black screw about 1/4" diameter and about 5/16" long with Phillips indentation but no "head" fell out of the machine. All externally visible screws are in place and are shiny "stainless-like" screws. I can't see where to open the cover to search for a place where the screw came from. Please advise.\015

I found the mounting screws under the rear wheels once I removed the hub but I do not know how to remove the rear wheels, everything is plastic. The front screws are under the front caster wheels and I think I need to take a screwdriver and pry off the little cylinder wheel to get to them by rotating
My electrolux ambassador power wand quit working. I replaced the switch that shuts it off when the roller stops, but it wasn't the problem. The on/off switch is fine, the motor is fine.

We can't find any screws to undo that would open it up in order to follow the wires deep into the canister. We've bypa
