You can also set the brush to the middle setting of the special/ normal brush settings. Also, your micro-sweep blade might have popped off making it very hard to push in that direction. The micro-sweep is the plate held by two screws right below the intake with the little blade that sticks up.

Most parts and service are covered on those machines for a year. (the 5 year part is just the motor and some "fluff" for advertising purposes) I would call oreck and find the nearest warranty service center. You should find they will fix it at no charge as long as its not deemed "abuse".

If you call them and they will not help, repost and we'll get you fix'd up!

Best of 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.

Cannot push vacuum forward on new area rug. But will work pulling backward. Still works on old area rugs and floors.


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty using your DC25 on this particular new area rug. As you've confirmed the vacuum works as normal on other rugs and hard floors, it doesn't sound like there's a fault with the vacuum itself.

As lightweight area rugs are not fixed to the floor, it's possible for the rug to lift and seal against the soleplate of the cleaner head, due to your DC25's powerful suction. As this will reduce the amount of airflow entering the cleaner head, you may need to use more push force than usual when vacuuming this type of flooring.

We would encourage you to check directly with the rug manufacturer, as they'll be best placed to provide information on correctly caring for this particular floor type.

If you'd like to discuss the issue you're experiencing with our experts, you're welcome to call us directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

I have a docking station on my Oreck; I am having a very difficult time putting in a new bag.


My oreck xl was leaking bad at the internal bag entrance. I found out that the outer bag was not seated in all the way to where it snaps completly over the retainer lip on the plastic part on the tube. Once I did that, I then put the docking station on, again making sure it was seated all the way, and finally the inner bag. The problem was alot better.

Oreck does not have good suction and leaves lint on rugs, and floor---any solutions?


If it has been longer than 6 months I woulf replace the belt. Wile doing that look to the rear of the vacuum and the side chute and make sure you do not have anything plugging those entrances.

Will Oreck Orbiter brushes fit my Emdeko Orbiter? Thanks, David


yes. Oreck bought the Orbiter maker and kept the machine the same. Rug cleaning product is not the same but works well enough. I sold the Orbiter machine under the EMDEKO name at one time. I have owned one for decades and love it. Audrey

Oreck Belts


Unfortunately this is a very common problem on the Oreck XL uprights. As you you noticed, there is even an extra belt storage on the machine itself, on the bottom plate. When a vacuum cleaner has to put an extra belt on the machine, this should be a clear warning sign that you're going to have replace belts.....frequently! Unfortunately this is just the nature of the beast. Since there is no height adjustment on the nozzle itself, the vacuum will lower until it hits the carpet, the carpet is the only thing that adjusts the height of the carpet attachment. On other vacuums you have the ability to raise and lower the brush head according to what type of carpet your cleaning. When the brushes are at the proper height, the belt is also running at the proper tension and strength on the brush. Since the Oreck doesn't have a height adjustment, the brushes have a lot more resistance to the carpeting, which is what leads me assume that's why the machine goes through so many belts.

Oreck XL's were designed for hotels. Their slogan used to be "The Hotel Vacuum for you Home" even. Anyone who has ever stayed at a hotel knows that most have a very low pile commercial grade carpeting. The Oreck XL does a fabulous job at cleaning low pile carpeting that doesn't have a lot of dirt to vacuum up (restaurants kill most vacuums, but especially Oreck). The problem is that the Oreck XL was originally designed for cleaning low pile commercial grade carpeting, and not to clean plush, piled carpeting. The Oreck's have a 4 AMP motor in them, and where as it's true AMP's don't equal suction power, it's safe to assume that a 4 AMP motor will not produce near the suction as a 12 AMP would. When cleaning low piled commercial carpeting, you don't need much suction power, even an electric broom can clean this type of carpeting.

Oreck however does do one thing right, and that's advertising. David Oreck is everywhere! Newspapers, TV commercials, internet advertising, direct mailers, and more. They spend so much money advertising their vacuum cleaners that everyone is familiar with their products. What most people don't realize is that the customer is the one gets to pay for all of the advertising that's being done! Through the power of advertising, Oreck has taken what should sell for a $100 electric broom, and turned it into a $600 full size upright! Dyson vacuums are the exact same way, a lot of advertising, but not much vacuum behind the price.

Chances are that if you heard about a product through a info-mercial, or a newspaper add, then that product automatically is going to be sell for more then it's worth.

Unfortunately I can't help you fix the problem with your Oreck continuing to burn belts, but I can give you a link to the belts on our site if you need to purchase them. We offer free shipping:

If you (or your friend) would like a personalized recommendation of a good vacuum specific for your exact cleaning needs, please feel free to add a comment, or contact me, I'd be happy to help.
