MAINTENANCE AND CARE
Annual Checkup

condition, it is recommended you
bring your vacuum to an Authorized
Riccar Vacuum Retailer for an annual
checkup. The Retailer will conduct
a comprehensive examination to ensure
your vacuum is in top operating condition.

When to Change the Vacuum Bag
The Full Bag Indicator Light is designed
to show when the bag is full or when
there is a clog in the vacuum.
The light could also come on when
vacuuming fine powders such as flour or
drywall dust. These materials can quickly
block the bag pores, significantly reducing
airflow before the bag is actually full.
The vacuum bag should still be changed.
The light may also come on during
attachment cleaning. If the light goes
off when attachments are no longer in
use, the vacuum bag does not need to
be changed.
NOTE: The vacuum bags are disposable
and intended to only be used once.
Do not attempt to reuse the bag, as
suction and filtration performance will
be greatly reduced.
