Check the roller brush, dust channel and then the back spine tubes - two parts which also holds the cloth bag - which holds it at the bottom via a spring. Unhook this, and prise up the rubber rings that hide the push in locks. Push the locks in and the spines should separate.You may need to undo the power cord since it comes out the top near the handle at the bottom. Check both spines and remove clogs with a thin round stick. Put everything back together slowly and switch on.

SOURCE: My bag is brand new and is not filling up with air

There may be a clog in the handle. The handle in Oreck acts like a hose to connect the floor part to the bag part. They are designed to come apart for this very reason. Inspect yours to find the diretions for clearing. No air in the bag is a dead giveaway in this case.

SOURCE: Oreck Electrikbroom (battery) won't hold charge and pick up dirt.

Battery needs to be replaced. All rechargeable batteries have limited recharge cycles. NiCad's are usually used in these and also develop "memory' which keeps them from recharging fully.
Contact Oreck or reputable dealer for replacement.

SOURCE: I have an Oreck Halo that is not picking any dirt

It may have a clog in the unit. if you unzip the outer bag, the hard shell bag, the bag on the inside should inflate instantly as soon as you turn the vacuum on. if it doesnt then it has a clog. Halo's are on of the hardest vacuums to work on. they take a lot of time and is almost impossible to explain how to fix it. i would definitely recommend bringing it to an authorized Oreck dealer to fix it if it is not a clog.
also make sure your roller brush is spinning when your on your carpets. if it is not spinning then i would try the reset button while the vacuum is on which is on the right side of the back of the vacuum is a little red button on top. you cant miss it.

2013 Oreck Vacuum . How can I check to see if it is stopped up?


If it scatters the dirt then it's definitely clogged up at the nozzle just behind the roller brush. Turn the sweeper upside down and stand it on the handle. Then look under the roller brush. I have two Oreck's in my house. You can take a screwdriver to loosen the clog and dump out the dirt. Don't try to pick up pine needles as these are sticky and will quickly clog up any vacuum sweeper.

My oreck will not pick up dirt from my carpet I cleaned the roller brushes well but there is a tiny bit of dust blowing out of the unit from the bottom


The nozzle behind the roller brush is probably clogged. Take a screwdriver and stick it in there and work it around and see if it loosens the clog.

Doesn't pick up


This could be a few reasons. Check and make sure your bag is not full of dirt, a full bag will make your vacuum's suction worse. Next check for clogs of dirt and debris. Check the nozzle and brushroll too. If you find no clogs and the brushroll and belt look good, it may be your vacuum fan is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Not picking up dirt.


There is a Clog in the machine...
Somewhere between the motor and the bag.
When you use the machine, the dirt picked up by the roller has no place to go but backwards.
You will need to disassemble it and look for the clog.

Older Oreck XL, new belt, new bag, checked for clogs, does not pick up
as it used to, and, much harder to push, seems to grab or drag, why????


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. There are a couple of things that may work. Depending on if you have the old style brushroll you can upgrade to a new style Oreck brushroll that has twice the brushes and will a work a lot smoother. Also, clean the bottom plate – get rid of any dust and dirt build up and then spray the bottom with silicone and let it dry after you have totally cleaned it. Always use Oreck genuine belts and to change the belt every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning and store the extra Oreck belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator, other wise if you have a new belt, gag, you have checked for clogs there is no reason why it should be hard to push, if the silicone does not work replace the bottom plate.

Oreck xl


Sounds like the Oreck is clogged. You'll have to undo the bag by the way of the clip in the middle at the back of the main black spindel neck and then at the bottom. Then take apart the main neck by pushing the rubber mounts upwards to release the pip fitting locks and holes. You should find that either the top of the neck or the bottom - where the dust channel feeder is located - is clogged. Either that or there may be a clog in the main dust channel after the roller brush or wedged into the fan unit itself - the Oreck XL is a dirty fan system which means clogged dirt can often get stuck between the dirt and the dirt channel.
