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.

Suction problem


Probably have a clog some where in the base and that is what causes it to throw stuff back out.

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.

My oreck halo starts and stops when vacuuming. you get two or three motions and it stops. my hand tingles when i vacuum. can you tell me what is wrong. it was bought in March of 2009


sound like you have a loose wire inside the unit, " DO NO USE TILL ITS FIXED ". Carefully start taking apart in the locations where the wire runs through. Pay attention to all the wiring, any little nick could be the problem. Somewhere in there a wire is touching the inside of the unit. You might want to get intouch with Oreck, that is a manufacturing defect, and not worth a law suit if you get electricuted from it. Thats what the tingleing is, your getting juiced by it.

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..

The roller will not turn off on our Oreck Halo. As soon as I plug it in, the roller turns on. Any ideas?


Not familiar with the Oreck Halo, but that sounds like a shorted switch.

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.

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.

Oreck Vacuum Cleaner problem (upright)


The best solution to any Oreck vacuum problem is to replace it with another brand. You are going to continue having problems with the Oreck..Not that other brands don't have problems. But, at least with
other brands the problems don't occur as often. Belt burning up. clogs, roller brush bristle wearing down prematurely, cord breaking internally, etc.
P.S. Oreck is good at one thing. Marketing!
