    I had a very similar problem with my vacuum. We had a central vacuum system and the attachment that it used was scratching up our floors. We ended up buying a new vacuum that would scratch the floors so much. http://www.idahohardwoodflooring.com/abo...

I would recommend using another cleaning method developed for use on hardwoods. It seems to me like even if you replace the wheels, eventually they will wear down again, causing more damage to your floors. Check home depot, ask them what the recommend. Hope I could help.

The roller brush on my Oreck XL Classic has only center bristles. Both sides have been worn down to nothing. It is hard to push.Why are the bristles wearing down?


Sounds as if the wheels are collapsed on one side and the brush is harder in contact on one side. In correct alignment the brush should just kiss the top of the carpet causing the bristles to flex a little.

Oreck will fix it for you under warranty;

Are the nylon roller carpet cleaners safe to use on laminate wood floors


Why not. Laminate floors are very tough. Just make sure that all of the nylon roller wheels are very free turning and that none have anything embedded in them that can cause possible scratching.

Too much suction on smooth surface


Check the wheels on the bottom plate to make sure they are not allowing the bottom to sit flat on the floor. The wheels must keep maintain a gap between the plate and floor or it will suck down like a suction cup.

Roomba has been scratching my hardwood floors.


My brand new Rhoomba worked perfect the first time. The second time using it, I was aghast to come home to the same issue.

My marble floors now have long scratches across the wide expanses of floor. In the areas where the rhoomba (I witnessed it doing this motion the first time I let it clean) does those small geometric patterns like in confined areas, those same geometric patterns appeared scratched into my marble floors in my condo!!!!

What's worse? They do not intend to do anything to repair the damage....just refund my money.


R---I---P O----F----F! DO NOT BUY ONE!!!!!!!

Oreck upright hard to push


If hard to push, only a few things to check:

(1) Rear wheels will get hair or thread wrapped around axles, dust, etc. and be hard to turn. Make sure each wheel turns easily.

(2) Small wheels on newer models (since about 1997-98) toward front are worn, missing or have same problem as item 1.

(3) Brush roll not turning. The brush roll actually helps pull this unit along the floor, as it rotates in the "forward" direction. If the belt broke, and you do not realize it, it may suddenly seem harder to push.

DC15 - scratching wooden floor


You should have an adjustment to remedy this...it is usually called a pile adjustment and is often found in the area above the beater bar.  
Is the bar worn?  Is there something in the bar causing the scratches?

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.
