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.

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.

Forever series hose is clogged


Turn the sweeper upside down and stand it on the handle then take a screw driver to unclog the nozzle behind the roller brush. If the rest of the hose is clogged then you may have to take it to a sweeper repair store to get it cleaned.
I would try a straightened out coat hanger and CAREFULLY work it around to try to break the clog. If you're not that handy then go to an Oreck store if you have one.

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..

I have the Oreck Sanapathic DMS2000 Handheld Steam Vacuum, but no steam comes out when I push the button. I hear the motor, is there any buttons I am missing or any help on how to make it work, been...


ORECK DMS2000 No Steam
First, tested tank and filter flow together using suction via
plastic tubing. Worked freely Second, removed pump
and disconnected hoses and terminals [watch location,
three terminals on pump, two plugs]. Pump has a slug inside
and I could blow water either way. Sucked white vinegar
both ways until check action returned. Use distilled water
in future!

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.

Bissell Powerwash Proheat, flow indicator not rotating


Is it spraying? Is so, maybe the cap for the indictor can be too tight, or loose, maybe be bad and allowing an air leak. The white filter under the indictor may need to be cleaned. If no spray:
Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix knob. Pump is bad. Try running a mix of vinegar and mater thru it to see if it will unclog it.

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.
