Follow the directions. With Oreck OEM bags they should attach easily. You need press the cardboard frame over the small nodules on the bag holder and they will stay in place

Oreck vacuum is blowing out air and not sucking up dust. Why is it doing that???


Most likely the air passage from the motor to the bag is clogged.

Take it outside, remove the bag, and turn it on. That may blow the clog out. If not, open it from the bottom, and try to snag the clog out.

I cannot keep the bag attached to the handle inside the cover on my Oreck XL Vaccuum. When it comes off dust blows out into the cover instead of the bag which makes it very hard to unzip the cover.


there should be a spring ring that slides up over the bag on the handle if thats missing try and use a couple of heavy duty rubber bands. however i do suggest you order the correct part.

All oreck uprights take bag type CC. I would Recommend buying oreck brand bags. they have the only patton on the bags. off brand bags will work but they will leak and tear and break.

I have an Oreck Halo that is not picking any dirt or dust up. Any suggestions?


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.

Hi, I purchased a used Oreck BB870-AD canister vacuum cleaner, but it didn't come with the manual or any bags. Can you tell me where I can find the manual & what type of bags do I need?


The manual is available as a PDF here: http://www.oreck.com/Owners-Guides . Scroll down to the Canisters section and then select the link for the Compact Canister vacuum.

The replacement bag that you should use is: Oreck Replacement Treated Filter Bags (12 pk. with
1 Micro Filter) No. PKBB12DW which cost $14.99 for each package from Oreck. On the Oreck site, these are the Hand-Vac Bags. See: http://www.oreck.com/Hand-Vac-Bags to order them online.

I hope this helps.

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.

Burning smell and not picking up


check for blockabe in bag inlet area, or bottom of unit by intake pivot.
ez check is to feel if bag blows firmly up with air when on, if not, you have a blockage.
