Sounds like the motor, fan chamber and the end cover for the fan chamber is not all of the way in place. They have to be on right on top of the scew posts.

The pulley will turn off, then the end will pull off. Some of the replacement brush rolls, the pulley may be pressed on and may or may not come off with out ruining the end.

Our combination steam-vacuum cleaner, Oreck has clogged the vacuum tube up into the handle where the bag less filter is? How to unclog or take apart to clean out?


A " mechanicky " person can use a variety of shop items and tricks to clean that out, such as high air pressure, shop vacuum machines, long poker rods, etc. etc. to clean this out for you.
God bless your efforts.

Your sweeper may have overheated. I don't know what brand you have but I hope you weren't trying to vacuum pine needles from the Christmas tree. Pine needles are sticky and will clog up any vacuum sweeper. Check your sweeper to make sure the tubes (hose & pipes that carry dirt) are clean and clear. I used to service Oreck vacuum sweepers.

My Oreck XL is shooting dust out from the roller when I try to vacumn


This is a sign that the bag is full or there's a clog in the air flow piping. Check behind the brush for clogs and remove if there is. Open the cloth bag, remove the paper bag, and check inside the tube. If no blockage is visible, drop a coin or marble down the opening and see if it rolls out. If not, there's a clog that needs removed. You can use an air pressure hose to blow it out..

My Oreck vacuum cleane won't turn on


I have an Oreck vacuum. My son used it just earlier today and it worked just fine, then just a little while ago a tried to turn it on to vacuum our bedroom and suddenly it won't turn on! I tried plugging it into other outlets but it was no use. My husband takes a look at it and first thinks that the switch is out in it. He takes the handle apart and quickly realizes that it is not the switch that is causing the problem. Then he took the base of the vacuum apart, removes the spin brush part and cleans it off, puts it back together, and suddenly it works! He said that when those brushes get real dirty the motor gets clogged, then it just won't turn on. I'm just happy I married someone who can figure these things out, because even if I knew the problem I'm still no good with a screwdriver, taking things apart and putting them back together again. Hope this works for your Oreck too and it's running again for you soon.

Vacuum billows dust


Its clogged. It needs to have a thorough clean out and this can be done by removing the sole plate / floor head where the beater bar is and checking to see that all the air ways or the dust channel that flows through t he main spine neck at the back is clear, checking the main spine at the back is clear and finally to check that there is no clogging at the top of the back spine as well. Oreck XL can become clogged quite quickly due to its relatively small suction tube openings and small motor.

Air flow tube is plugged. I can't get it apart to clean out. It says to press the 2 pins at the base but they don't move when I try to press them, even using pliers.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The tube going into the motor section is to push the pin and then twisted, the lower part get a dust and dirt build up and sometimes hard to remove, give it a shot of WD-40 @ the top and bottom of the fill tube and then repeat the pus in the tab and twist and it should come loose. There are also in the bigger cities the Oreck stores that you can also bring it to as well. If you have further problems or you do not have the strength to do this, bring it to a local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area and it is only a 5 or 10 minute job to remove the tube and to unclog the vacuum. 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.

My upright Oreck Vacuume XL 2


the main tube is clogged.
unplug it, open bag area, remove bag look for clog.
if clear, take off lower coller, pull up tube, remove blockage, either in tube or fan area.
if clear, look in bottom by intake area for blockage.
fan can not run backwards.
good luck.

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.

That the bottom plate off, check for a clog in the inlet. If clear, then you probably have a clog in the handle tube. You will have to take the handle loose to clean it out. It may also need a new belt if you haven't changed it for a while, they stretch.

Oreck Vacuum troubleshooting


Hi. If the motor is on its way out the motor noise will be eratic eg slowing down speeding up popping noise & a smell of electrical burning. If you have none of these symptoms then chances are its not the motor. Does the bag inflate or is it easy to collapse when you push the bag ? If bag inflates ok check belt. If bag not fully inflating check for blockages along length of the handle pipe its designed to pull apart by lifting up rubber sleeve at machine end of pipe, push ball latch in & pull pipe out remove any debris stuck in the pipe. Remove bbottom of machine as if replacing belt check to see if there is any debris stuck in the oppening that goes to motor fan, then check the fan blades you can see them through the port is there any missing or snapped off. If blades are missing or have big chunks missing you will need to replace. If fan only has minor bits missing then reassemble it should now worl well.
