SOURCE: Oreck XL 21

My old vacume had the same problem - the wire had a 'plug' on both ends. 1 to the wall outlet and 1 to the vacume, which you could pull out of the vacume. It was making poor contact at the vacume and eventialy burned out (melted)
See if the plug/wire to the unit is removable, if so is it damaged?,
could need a cleaning, or it may not be pushed in all the way.

Good Luck

How to clean the dirt cup
Posted by Deneece on May 05, 2008
How do you clean the "bagless dirt cup" for my Oreck Cordfree Electrik Broom? I do not have an instruction manual since it was given to me.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The best way to clean a dirt cup is to wash it with soap and water and dry it thoroughly so that there is not water or moisture, do NOT however get the filter wet because it will lose filtration and the best way to clean the filter is to brush off the dirt, wipe off the dirt on the filter, or replace the filter id dust and dirt are getting through, other wise wash the cup only with soap and water. Also contact your local vac dealer or Oreck Store in your area or the Oreck factory @ the number listed below t get a new owner’s manual. So feel free to contact your local vac dealer. 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.

How to increase ******* on oreck xl BB870-AW Canister Vacuum


There is no way to 'increase' suction, you can only check all the tubes and airways to make sure they are clear. One further possibility is that the fan has become damaged or worn, or the filter bag needs changing. If the vacuum is clear, return it to Oreck under their no quibble replacement policy. I used Oreck uprights in my hotel and got those free. They used to advertise them holding a bowling ball by suction alone.

Can't get the filter on


Good morning,

Here is the manf. guide to the DP460:
http://www.oreck.com/PUG/Power-Broom.pdf

The filter bag can be removed from the frame for rinsing/cleaning, and the bag can just be refitted in the frame. The frame only fits one way onto the vacuum.

Let me know if you need more clarification (the manual also includes pictures). Please rate this solution! Thanks!

Oreck Belts


Unfortunately this is a very common problem on the Oreck XL uprights. As you you noticed, there is even an extra belt storage on the machine itself, on the bottom plate. When a vacuum cleaner has to put an extra belt on the machine, this should be a clear warning sign that you're going to have replace belts.....frequently! Unfortunately this is just the nature of the beast. Since there is no height adjustment on the nozzle itself, the vacuum will lower until it hits the carpet, the carpet is the only thing that adjusts the height of the carpet attachment. On other vacuums you have the ability to raise and lower the brush head according to what type of carpet your cleaning. When the brushes are at the proper height, the belt is also running at the proper tension and strength on the brush. Since the Oreck doesn't have a height adjustment, the brushes have a lot more resistance to the carpeting, which is what leads me assume that's why the machine goes through so many belts.

Oreck XL's were designed for hotels. Their slogan used to be "The Hotel Vacuum for you Home" even. Anyone who has ever stayed at a hotel knows that most have a very low pile commercial grade carpeting. The Oreck XL does a fabulous job at cleaning low pile carpeting that doesn't have a lot of dirt to vacuum up (restaurants kill most vacuums, but especially Oreck). The problem is that the Oreck XL was originally designed for cleaning low pile commercial grade carpeting, and not to clean plush, piled carpeting. The Oreck's have a 4 AMP motor in them, and where as it's true AMP's don't equal suction power, it's safe to assume that a 4 AMP motor will not produce near the suction as a 12 AMP would. When cleaning low piled commercial carpeting, you don't need much suction power, even an electric broom can clean this type of carpeting.

Oreck however does do one thing right, and that's advertising. David Oreck is everywhere! Newspapers, TV commercials, internet advertising, direct mailers, and more. They spend so much money advertising their vacuum cleaners that everyone is familiar with their products. What most people don't realize is that the customer is the one gets to pay for all of the advertising that's being done! Through the power of advertising, Oreck has taken what should sell for a $100 electric broom, and turned it into a $600 full size upright! Dyson vacuums are the exact same way, a lot of advertising, but not much vacuum behind the price.

Chances are that if you heard about a product through a info-mercial, or a newspaper add, then that product automatically is going to be sell for more then it's worth.

Unfortunately I can't help you fix the problem with your Oreck continuing to burn belts, but I can give you a link to the belts on our site if you need to purchase them. We offer free shipping:
3 Oreck XL® Upright Vacuum Replacement Belts

If you (or your friend) would like a personalized recommendation of a good vacuum specific for your exact cleaning needs, please feel free to add a comment, or contact me, I'd be happy to help.

Where can I find the charger for the Oreck ElectrikBroom AV-701B. It's part no. 40181-01?


You might be surprised. Ebay doesn't have any listed. Oreck is a very private company and they don't sell unlimited stock to anyone, even their distributors. If you find one on Ebay, it will be an aftermarket unit that MIGHT fit.
