Its a simple operation but it will take some time.  On the back of the Oreck just up from the motor you'll come to the first rubber ring which hides the push/pin locks of the main spine. There are two or three on the Oreck depending on the XL model - slide them down to reveal the pin locks and push them in wards to unlock the main spindle pipe. At the same time ensure that the bag clip at the bottom has been unclipped and the cord is also free, taken off the hooks at the back. The main pipe/spine at the back is the main dust channel so this is the first place to check for a clog and then upwards towards the handle/dust channel feeder - there is usually a small screw on the square part at the bottom which loosens the main handle from the body of the spine.

My 1 month old Oreck upright is not sucking in anymore. Worked fine for about 3 weeks. Now it just seems to push stuff around. I'm not sure if it is the bags? Ordered what I was told to order.


The intake tube could very well be clogged. Its pretty simple to disassemble. This happens commonly on Oreck, all you need is for something stiff to get lodged sideways in the tube then everything builds up around it.

How do you clean the handle


Tina,
Sounds like you have a clog. You can turn the collars on the handle to be able to dismantle your handle so that you can check to see if it is clogged. hope this helps.

My Hoover upright U5472-900 runs but there is no suction at all. I have taken it apart and thoroughly cleaned it.


Turn it on. Detatch the cleaning tools handle from it's mount. If it still has no suction, you have a plugged hose. Everything your vacuum does goes through that long hose. Take the 2 screws off where it attacvhes to the unit, then gently push a broom handle through it to release/loosen the clog. You should be able to see through the hose from end to end. Toys, tissue and pine needles are big culprets of clogged hoses.

My Bissell ProHeat 2X CleanShot Upright Deep Cleaner, 9500; flow gauge will not spin and the machine is not dispensing solution with both the solution and water tank full. I have cleaned all inlets where...


No what it means are the tubes that carry the solutions are plugged and most likely full of old detergent that hardened. You will need to clean all the plastic tubing out for the dispensers. When your done using the machine always run clean water only through the dispenser and tube to flush out the detergents.

Remove bottom of electrolux prolux upright vacuum. Hose is clogged.


You shouldn't have to remove disassemble the powerhead.
Lay vacuum on it's front. Between the tank and the powerhead is a black flex hose. Pull the end straight out from the powerhead. Then unscrew the tube from the tank using a clockwise turn. Remove the tube and visually check for clogs and splits. Clear or replace as needed.
If there's a clog in the powerhead behind the brush, this can be cleared using a wooden spoon handle or similar object.
If there's no clog in either place, there's a couple other possibilities. First, turn the vacuum back upright, open the hose flap, turn vacuum on, and place hand over opening to check for suction.
If there's a lack of suction, the bag needs replaced, the afterfilter beneath the bag needs cleaned, or the motor needs replaced.
If there is suction, put a coin in the opening inside the port and to the right as you're viewing the front of the vacuum. The coin should drop to the floor. A clog in thes section is unusual, but can happen.
If there is still no suction, take the vacuum to the nearest authorized Aerus Electrolux store for free diagnosis.

HOW DO i CLEAN MAIN TUBE IN HANDLE CLOGED


You'll have to unpick or slide up the rubber rings on the back of the handle at the bottom where the rear of the bag is. Unclip the bag so that it moves freely, slide up the rubber rings and you'll find a series of pop locks. Push these in to take out the main dust spine pipe - also remove the power cord at the top of the handle to release the handle. In the middle of the spine there is one screw that bonds the top handle part to the spine, unscrew this so that you can split the two parts up and check for clogs. Also check the main dust channel that leads to the bag - it is notorious for clogging because of its relatively small dust channel.

I had the exact same problem. The port is a relief valve to prevent the motor from burning out if the hose/bag are clogged. Check the main hose from end to end after removing the 3 screws that hold it to the body of the vacuum near the handle. If that's clear then it's almost certainly clogged in the short tube that goes from the beater bar housing to the hose extension (where the flex tube attaches). There are two ways of going about this.

Option 2
(the way I did it) -- Lock the base on the upright position and turn the unit over. Unscrew the 12 or so screws in the black base. You'll need to depress the release pedal when removing the screw at the end of the pedal. Once you have all of the screws removed carefully wiggle the base loose. You do not need to remove it completely to access the short flex tube. Clean it out and replace everything in the opposite order from how you removed it.

Option 1 (what I would do next time) -- Cut a wire coat hanger and make a small 1/2" hook at the end. Bend the straight section into about a 4" radius arc leaving plenty to handle at the end opposite the hook. Carefully snake the hanger down the tube and pull out the giant clump of hair and dirt that's clogging the vacuum.

cheers -- eric

No water or soap flow


Does liquid squirt out of the hose. If it does then probably the heater inside the handle asm. is clogged. Take out the two long screw that hold the top handle on and remove it, then near the bottom of the handle, near the bottom are 2 more screw to remove. Then the front of the handle asm. will come off, pull the 2 tubes off of the heater and check the inlets to make sure they are open. It gets clogged up from calcium from saop deposits, but when you are down with the machine, run vinegar and water mix thru to clean out the lines before you put it away. Let me know if this doesn't fix your problem.

That the bottom plate off, check for a clog in the inlet. If clear, then you probably have a clog in the handle tube. You will have to take the handle loose to clean it out. It may also need a new belt if you haven't changed it for a while, they stretch.
