AUTO POLARIZATION INSTRUCTIONS
Power Cord, 2-Wire Polarized Cord
To reduce the risk of electric shock, the charger is equipped with a polarized
alternating current line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other). This
plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are
unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug
should still fail to fit, contact a qualified electrician to replace the obsolete outlet.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.

of clothing is ever picked up into your
vacuum, the vacuum will sense this

top of the nozzle will flash in red.
• Turn off the vacuum and remove the cause
of the jam. Turn the vacuum back on.
• If the brushroll is free of obstructions
and the Brushroll Jam Indicator light
is still flashing, it’s likely the clogged
condition is located in the vacuum
motor fan. If so, please take your
vacuum to an Authorized Riccar
Retailer for service.

Your vacuum belt is covered with a
lifetime warranty. Should the belt break,

MAINTENANCE AND CARE

(Model R10S)
WARNING! To Reduce the Risk of
Electrical Shock or Injury From Moving
Parts, Unplug Before Servicing or Cleaning.
Your vacuum features a circuit breaker
to protect the machine against damage
due to a surge in the electrical current.
Electrical surging can be a result of, though
not limited to, a jammed motor fan.
Should your vacuum cleaner experience
a jammed brushroll with the circuit breaker
tripping, first turn the vacuum off and
unplug the unit. Inspect the brushroll by
removing the bottom plate (see page 9)
and remove any debris that may be causing
the jam. Reinstall the bottom plate (see
page 9) and reset the circuit breaker
by pressing the Circuit Breaker Reset
Button. Plug in the power cord and turn
on the vacuum. If the vacuum fails to
turn on, visit an Authorized Riccar Retailer
for assistance.

If your squeegee splits or begins to look
worn, simply slide the worn squeegee
from its track and slide a new one into
the track. If you have trouble installing
the new squeegee, please visit an
Authorized Riccar Retailer for help.
Annual Checkup
To keep your vacuum in peak operating
condition, it is recommended you bring
it to an Authorized Riccar Retailer for
an annual checkup. The Retailer will conduct
