Question about Vacuums
My 'Riccar 4810 Fast Track' vacuume cleaner wand just broke. It's the end piece of the 3 part nesting tubes, the piece that fit's into the base of the vaccume it self. Can you please tell me where I can buy just that piece, with out having to purchase an entire new hose set?
Hoover Wind tunnel supreme, loss of suction

Hello, I purchased two of these models in late 2007 and after changing the bags on each of them I have little to no suction with the vacuum. The hose is fine and I have taken them apart and there is no obstruction in the hose or in the base.
These worked so well and now they don't do anything. The bag isn't filling much and the simplest things can’t be vacuumed up
Please help me to fix this
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

Sorry you are having a problem, it sounds lie you have done almost everything, but just in review it could be some of these problems:
Belt change – every 4 to 6 months
Are the brushes in good shape
Where does your suction drop off
Is the bottom plate securely on the bottom
Are there any gaskets that are broken or leaking
Is the bag installed securely
Did you check for any clogs or obstructions
Is the filter clean
Feel free to contact your local vac dealer in your area.
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

If you just grab it where it swivels and pull with a slight bending motion the plastic "bayonet" section on the end of the hose will pull out of the plastic housing that attaches to the vacuum. Don't pull on the corrugated hose section or you will ruin the whole assembly.

Greetings from GoVacuum,
Make sure the vacuum is NOT plugged in. In order to replace the roller brush, you'll need to unscrew the 6 screws on the bottom plate of the vacuum cleaner. Oreck uses a Phillips Head screw, so you'll need to get a Phillips head screw driver to replace the brush.
After removing the screws from the bottom plate, simply pull up on the plate by putting your fingers into the open area where the existing brush is located. After the bottom plate has been removed you will have access to the roller brush and belt.
You can now just grab the roller brush and pull straight up on it. It's beneficial to change the belt of the vacuum when you're replacing the roller brush anyways. There is a spare belt on the actual bottom plate of all Oreck XL vacuums.
You'll notice that the new roller brush has two black square plastic caps on both sides of the roller brush. You can look on the outside of this black cap, and you'll see the words OLD and NEW. Rotate the NEW side so it's facing upwards, and the OLD side is the side that's down inside the vacuum cleaner, make sure that both sides have the NEW side facing upwards. You'll need to wrap the belt around the silver pin in the back of the vacuum on one side, and through the roller brush's metal pulley on the other side. The just stretch the belt with the brush inside of it, and place the black plastic parts back into the vacuum cleaner.
Congratulations, you've now just replaced the roller brush in your Oreck!

i found this part online- search for part # via an exploded parts diagram of your specific unit (via google)
i ordered 5 of them because it always breaks or pops out.
this is a nice machine with crappy parts.
