Question about Oreck Vacuums
Why is my xl10 dragging whilst in use? Only a few months old, replaced belt & bag but still dragging. Struggle to move it on carpet. Checked for blockage, etc but everything clear. It's hard work using when I know from previous experience the oreck usually glides across carpets & tiles.

You can also set the brush to the middle setting of the special/ normal brush settings. Also, your micro-sweep blade might have popped off making it very hard to push in that direction. The micro-sweep is the plate held by two screws right below the intake with the little blade that sticks up.

You say it lost its suction, then you also say this is plenty of suction power, seems you cant figure out the prob. Try cleaning the fan on the suction blower. The blades can get chocked with dust which will give you a reduced suction.

I know this sounds silly, but it works. Turn it over and wipe all the black residue off the bottom of it (off the plastic on the bottom that rubs on the carpet as you push and pull it). I thought my husband was out of his mind when he told me that was the solution, but it really works.
