SOURCE: I can't figure out how to put the bag on.

I had a terrible time trying to install a bag, too! The hinged piece must be closed. Hook the cardboard backing on the opening and
line up the pieces sticking out on either side of the hinged piece with the openings in the cardboard on the back of the bag. It has two places where you're supposed to place your fingers and push until it pops. Neither my husband nor I could make it pop, so I just looked at the back of the hinged piece and saw a little clamp type thing cut out in the plastic. This has to hook onto the plastic piece that is connected to the vacuum cleaner. Just bend it out and hook it on, making sure that everything is lined up.

Hi,

you can wash the bag. However you cannot wash the bag in the wash machine. What you will want to do is look for the screw or depending on the model, untwist the cap down on the rod next to the machine. that entire pole section will come off of the unit below with the bag there.

I recommend if it is warm outside to use the garden hose to spray it and scrub inside the bag with a scrub brush and some dish soap.

I usually throw them into the laundry sink and let soak, scrubbing with soap and water.

To dry the bag, a hairdryer or hang to dry before putting the piece back onto the machine.

Good luck.

How do I, get the outer bag off to replace it.


Debby,
Do you have a bag dock that holds your paper bags? If you do, squeeze the bottom of the part that goes around the bag opening so that you can remove the hinged part and then you can spread the first part & take it off & then remove the bag. If you do not have a bag dock, there is a "U" shaped metal clip that goes over the opening on the connector assembly. Remove that clip & that will allow you to remove your bag. Hope this Helps!

How do I replace the OUTER bag on my Oreck XL2200?


Depends on whether you have a bag dock or not. If you have a bag dock, squeeze the inside part where it hinges and pull off the outer part, then spread the inner part and pull off of the handle tube. Then you can pull the outer bag off of the same handle tube connection and then disconnect from the bottom. Installation is just the reverse of taking it off. If you do not have a bag dock, there is a "U" shaped clip that goes over the top of the bag connection on the handle tube. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pry up on the clip and pull it off. You can then pull your bag off the handle tube and disconnect at the bottom and replace your bag. Hope this helps!

The bag will not stay attached it comes off the rubber nozzle and dirt gets everywhere my old oreck had a much better design with the velcro closure.i am very dissapointed.


Please make sure that the plastic pieces that holds the outer/inner bags on the vacuum are attached properly. Push the outer (permanent) bag down against the vacuum. It will go over a black lip. Put first piece of the bag dock on..make sure it is behind that lip also. When you reattach the second piece to the dock, this will tighten the docking system. It will keep the outer bag on and keep the inner (disposable) bag in place so that it is catching the dirt...not the outer bag.

I need to remove the outer bag from my Kirby upright. The inner bag was not attached and there is mung everywhere.


In order to remove the outer jacket from your Kirby do the following.
Detach the top bag clip from the handle support. There is a plastic piece, just below the outer jacket, called the mini emptor. Turn it to the right to remove the entire bag assembly. Removing the outer jacket is dificult and even harder to put back on so this is what I would do.
Unzip the outer jacket as you were going to change the bag. Remove the paper bag. You will then see a long black tube, that has a 90 degree elbow at the top. That elbow is attached to the inside of the bag with a snap type strap. Remove the strap, then you will be able to move the tube, while you clean out the inside of the bag. When finished put everything back where it was.

Oreck xl 9100 bag wont stay on using type cc replaced inside bag hanger


What year model?

Pre-late 1990s, bag on upright just fit over the adapter in the tube.

Lat 1990s, went to a version that had a sliding piece of paper to cloe off the bag & prevent spillage, and required a hinged plastic piece for chipboard piece on bag to slide into.

Must have right bag for the unit, otherwise it will not stay on, will leak.
