Question about Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum
My Oreck won't pick up anything.
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.

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.

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.

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.
