Is this purifier wet at all, or been in any heavy areas of moisture. This purifier is very undependable with moisture. It may just have to dry out. Let me know if this solves your problem or we can explore further options.

Please keep me updated, thanks

SOURCE: Oreck XL air purifier problems

You probably have an open circuit in the high voltage circuit. Most likely cause is a broken or disconnected wire. The high voltage wires are very small diameter stainless steel and are connected to alternating aluminum plates by a crimp connection at the ends of the plated. If you insert an object like a brush or wood tongue depressor/popsickle stick in to scrub the plates during cleaning you run the risk of pulling the wires lose or worst case, breaking them. If you just pulled some loose they can be repaired ( I know because I have done it) but you have to partially disassemble the cleaner cartridge to get to the end of the plate(s) with the disconnected wire(s), open the tab that grips the wire, insert the wire in the tab, re-crimp it, and then re-assemble the cleaning unit. I would rate it as moderately difficult. Be careful in bending all the tabs as they are aluminum and will break if bent too much or too many times. Good luck.

SOURCE: Oreck XL air purifier motor failure

My Orek was making such a bad noise that my wife was going to sell it at a garage sale, I'm glad she didn't. It takes about 20 minutes to fix. All you need is a phillips screw driver, can of compressed air (or air compressor) and a can of silicone spray.
Pull out the filters and turn the unit upside down. Using a phillips screw driver unscrew the 9 screws holding the bottom to the top. remove the bottom. Use care as to not damage the fan. The fan will stay attached to the motor , pull on it and use a good cleaner like 409, Simple Green or a similar product. Wash clean and dry. Next get out your air compressor and clean everywhere, see the silver bearing holders on the side of the motor? Get out your can of silicone spray and give a good squirt on both bearing (close to the shaft. also spin the motor with your hands. See the large thing attached to the shaft? Those are the windings. See the metal housing the winding spin close to? Spray the silicon in there, a good amount. Make sure you didn't get any silicone on the end of the motor shaft where the fan sits on. If you did get some nail polish remover or acetone and wipe clean a few times. Then reassemble.
My Orek was horribly noisy, now it's quiet. My wife says is beeter than new.....

SOURCE: Cleaning the top of the oreck air purifier

what i normally do, is i take off the top of the and remove the filter, the metal dust catcher, and the back filter... i was the 2 filters and rub them down. then with the metal dust catcher i take a butter knife. wrap it in a clorox wipe (making sure that no metal is exposed to scratch) then i feed it through the metal dust catcher one at a time to clean it. It took me 5 wipes to clean the whole thing. when the wipe comes out black then i rotate it. As for the top of the machine. there are 2 screws that i removed to get to the fan. when they were out i used a can of air (like you would clean a computer with) and blew out the fan... it took care of all noise and it runs just like the day i got it.

I can not get the cover back on my oreck xl air purifier


How about making sure it's not on backwards... Hehe. It only goes one way. If it isn't going back on, you're doing it wrong. Mind the notches and line them up with the unit, logo facing forward of course.

My oreck air purifier xl won't turn on


With the Air 8 Models there is a number of issues from the motor to the power supply to the circuit boards. With these old units it is hard to find parts for them. as oreck no longer manufactures them. but if the parts were availible i would estimate around 100 to fix your power issue

Should I run unit with windows open and atic fan on????


It seems that you would be changing lots of air volume with windows open and the attic fan on. I suggest turning off the unit unless the room is closed, so it can recirculate and clean THAT air.

Will not turn on


Are you sure the outlet it's plugged into is still working/ Try plugging the unit into another outlet that's on a different circuit. Also, I believe that Oreck Model has a reset switch on the back of the unit.

I have 2 and they smell bad. You have a bad reputation and I am going to return them to Canadian Tire if the odor problem is not resolved in the next 48 hours.


Stan, unfortunately what you're saying is not to Oreck, the manufacturer. This site is designed to help you determine what the problem is and hopefully, how to solve or repair the problem. But, not be threatened by what you want to do with your Oreck Air Purifier. Save that for Oreck.

With that said, I would have to ask you, when was the last time you cleaned or changed the filters on the air purifiers? I suspect that may be problem.

How to remove the air cell


  1. Turn off unit and unplug it
  2. Along the front edge there should be a thumbscrew, loosen until it is free
  3. Lift front cover from left edge
  4. Pull cell from unit
  5. remove screen from cell, it slides out from the top of the cell
  6. remove odor/ozone absorber, it is clipped into the back edge of the cell
You do not need to be afraid to set the unit on it's back or side, just make certain not to drop it.
