Question about Oreck XL21 Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Small metal rod fell out when i opened the bottom of the orecl xl 21. where does it goes?

The metal rod is about 2" and at one of the ends, it's a little bit bigger with small raised bars like a male fitting to go into a reverse slot. I was vacuuming and heard a sound like a screw got sucked in so I opened the bottom of the vacuum to locate it. I picked the vacuum up and the scent cartridge and this bar fell out. Now I don't know where this bar came from

Remove the five screws from the baseplate and replace your belt by removing your brushroll, putting the belt over the motor pulley, and then over the pulley on the brushroll, then replacing the brushroll in its original position and screwing the baseplate on. Note that you should make sure that the bearing ends of your brushroll spin freely prior to doing this to avoid the belt breaking again.

the main tube is clogged.
unplug it, open bag area, remove bag look for clog.
if clear, take off lower coller, pull up tube, remove blockage, either in tube or fan area.
if clear, look in bottom by intake area for blockage.
fan can not run backwards.
good luck.

Check that the beater bar is completely clear of thread, this will bring the brush roll back to normal. Also check the sides of the brush roll doesn't have anything such as thread or thick string at the sides.

SOURCE: My Oreck Vacuum cleaner keeps burning up belts. I

I am having the same trouble. I bought the vacuum new in October 2007 when my wife and I purchased a newly constructed home. Since it is only two of us, she only has to vacuum once a month. I have taken it in three different times and get the same story. It needed a new belt. Mine has white smoke coming out of it and smells like burning rubber. I contacted Oreck and got no results. They refused to let me discuss this with Dave Oreck, stating that he nevers talks with customers! Gary Neeble

It should. You can call Oreck and talk with them and give them the serial number off your vacuum and they can look it up and tell you for sure if it will fit or not.

Where does the static wire go in the handle. It fell out and now I am having trouble getting it back in. I fixed the cord myself. Model XL2100rh


If you look closely, you can see a sahllow groove along the inside top of the handle. The curved portion of the static wire fits in that. One end fits in a hole just below the switch, the other end just goes down inside the metal post.

8955 Upright Vacuum: How to change belt?...


Be sure to unplug your vacuum from the electrical outlet before proceeding!

-Turn your vacuum upside down so that the handle is resting on the floor and nozzle portion is resting on a work bench.
-Remove the 2 phillips screws from the metal bottom plate and set the bottom plate aside.
-Look at the right side of the brush roll. You will see a bent metal rod that attaches to the brush roll end cap. This is the clutch rod that allows your brush roll to spin or not depending on the position of the carpet/floor switch on the top of the nozzle. Pull this rod out of the brush roll clutch only. Leave the switch end of the rod where it is and just let the rod rest there.
-Pull the brush roll and old belt out and dispose of the old belt.
To install a new belt; put the new belt on the motor shaft first, next put the other end of the belt over the end of the brush roll and stretch belt and brush roll back in to place. Notice that on the brush roll end cap opposite of where the clutch rod goes, there is a metal piece with a slot cut into it. Be sure that this slot mates with the plastic stop in the nozzle so that the end cap cannot move.
Snap the clutch rod back in place and rotate the brush roll by hand to make sure the belt is not pinched.
Replace the bottom plate.

Dyson DC07 Clear Bin Flap will not release


I just received my replacement root cyclone in the mail today after waiting in the back-ordered status for three months. I positioned a butter knife in between the rubber gasket on the bottom flap lid and the bottom rim of the clear bin at the farthest point from the hinge and slowly and gently wiggled the knife between until the bottom flap just fell open. I examined the rubber gasket and it survived without injury and the bottom flap seals without any gaps...good luck

Machine will only sew in reverse


Open the bottom of the machine. Ther is a rod running from one end to the other. It needs to be loosened and turned 180 degrees. You may have to retime the machine when you are done.

Replacing a belt on a dirt devil vaccuum


That metal rod is probably the motor shaft or pulley. On some of these, the open space between the shaft and top cover is very narrow. You just have to push thru th opening to around the shaft, then put it on the brush roll. Th belt will stretch enough to re-install the brush roll.
