Question about Oreck XL2200 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Outer Oreck xl bag is full of dirt

The outer Bag is full of dirt. When I unzip the bag dust goes everywhere. Blah! I never allow my disposable to get full so I know that isn't the problem. My disposable bags are the ones that slide into the little plastic assembly then snap shut. I feel that perhaps there isn't a good seal somewhere. So I'm wondering, should I replace the outer zip up bag, the plastic assembly that hold the bag, or both?

    when you change the bag make sure the new one is secure or it will suck dust into the bag filter area.

    **UPDATE*** I had to replace the plastic bag dock. When the dock is opened and you slide a bag on, there is a little plastic lip that the bag part snaps into that holds it in place. I guess over the years , from all the use, that plastic lip was bent to far and didn't hold properly. It was an inexpensive fix. I found one on ebay for a dollar. Thanks for all the help.

Make sure that your bag is pushed all the way past the lip on the connector tube and that the "U" shaped part of the plastic assembly is in it's slot behind that lip, or it will not seal properly and you will get dust into the outer bag.

SOURCE: I would really like to wash the outer bag of my

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.
Mark

How do I remove outer bag of oreck vacuum cleaner XL 9000W and how do I clean it? Removable bag broke and outer bag filled up with dirt.


If there is a bag dock on it, seperate large part of bag dock from smaller one, by squeezing bottom of bag dock to release tabs from larger one. Pull smaller part of bag dock apart and off of vacuum. Bag will now release from hole. If there is no bag dock, there is a metal piece around hole that is holding other bag on.

Blue plastic bag holder on oreck upright detached - how to put it back in?


Amy, not sure from your description whether the outer part is what came off or the smaller, inner part came off. If it is the outer part, all you need to do is squeeze the two prongs of the inner part of the bag holder together and slip the two pegs into the holes on the outer part of the holder. If the inner part came off then you have to spread it, so that it will go over the opening on the handle, and then follow the directions I gave to install the outer part. Hope this helps.

Took bag completely off and now I can't put it back together


Put the outer bag back on the unit. Make sure that you have pushed the outer bag down past a black lip. The piece that holds the inner and outer bag on the vacuum needs to be put on next. The small horseshoe shaped plastic piece goes on with hte open part down. Make sure that the docking station goes behind the lip I told you about. Next put the piece that the inner bag slides into on. This should have the bag back on the vacuum and ensure that it is on properly. If not, then it will pull of pretty easy and blow dirt into the outer bag...not the one that is meant to catch the dirt....I am a manager of an Oreck store.

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 have an XL Silver Upright Vacuum with a docking Station. Bag will not stay on and dirt & dust builds up inside the Vacuum. Big mess to clean out. Also vacuum is hard to push. Is it because BAG...


The docking station is not on properly...Make sure that you have the outer (permanent) bag pushed down over the lip of the vacuum. The docking system needs to be behind the lip also. This keeps both the inner and outer bag firmly attached. If it is hard to push, you may look into replacing the roller brush. They start breaking down..kinda like a toothbrush. It will make it extremely hard to push.

Oreck XL Silver-how do I re-attach the outside bag that holds the disposable vacuum bag?


if you provide me with the model # which is located on the back of the brush head ill provide you with the part # for the metal clip that holds the outer cloth bag onto the bag fill tube. Check on the top of the black tube or inside the cloth bag and see if it fell off and didnt get lost before you get a new one.

Dirt smell


If this thing has a fast-spinning belt in the "head" of the unit, you are smelling the dust that is being collected in the back of the little drive "chamber" and is being heated up by the motor and the friction of the belt. This is a pretty common thing on vacuum cleaners designed like the Oreck. If it is huge bunnies of dust, well then that means there is a leak somewhere...
