We don't see Oreck problems very often on these pages, probably because their essential simplicity leaves very little that can possibly go wrong. However, your remark that this machine is used by professional janitors leaves me wondering if whoever made the purchasing decision took into account the type of use it would get. You may need a machine that's better suited to the job.

How much do I need to spent to get a quality vacuum?


Cost isn't the main factor to get a quality vacuum. There are plenty of vacuums in all price ranges that may work great the first year or two. Some expensive vacuums have problems and require lots of maintenance. Most vacuums in the hundred dollar price range are good for about a year. Bagless vacuums require a lot more maintenance than a bagged vacuum. Filters must be cleaned frequently to insure good airflow, and the filters and belts should be replaced at least once per year on most models. Filter replacement on bagged vacuums is not as critical because the dirt goes into the bag keeping the insides of the vacuum a lot cleaner which makes it last longer. Some vacuums, Hoover Windtunnel for example are available as a bagged or bagless model. The bagged models perform much longer than the bagless models for the average consumer, mainly because most people do not maintain their vacuums properly. There are a few really great vacuums in the two to three hundred dollar range that can work great for 10 years or more with nominal routine maintenance. The best place to find one is at a reputable vacuum store.

I just replaced the bag (used recommended Miele bag). When I turned on the machine the red "bag full" indicator comes on and the suction seems poor. I tried reinserting bag. ?


Good afternoon Kristen.

Vacuum cleaners usually pop the 'bag full' indicator when they lose suction due to the load of dirt in the bag impeding the motor pulling air through.

If you are still getting the indicator with a new bag, and already did the prudent re-seating of the bag, the next thing is likely a clog or blockage elsewhere in the vacuum. You don't specify the model, so I can't be too specific.

Safety first. Please please please make sure the unit is unplugged before you start disassembling.

As you are able, detach hoses, look in the back of the brush unit, see if there's a blockage. Wads of crumpled paper are particularly good at wedging themselves into corrugated flex lines. Depending on location, I've found that a wire coat hanger, bent into marshmallow-roaster configuration, with the old hook bent with some pliers into a long straight section with a small half-loop at the end, can be a good probe for the long sections of tube to see if it runs into anything, and then perhaps hook it and pull it out. Be careful if you do this to not hook the tubing walls and tear them.

Hoping this helps!

How to get dog smell out of xl2600hh


Denise,
You need to do a bag wash of your outer bag. You will need to take the bag dock off if you have one of those on your vacuum or take off the "U" shaped clip if you do not have a bag dock and then pull the bag off of the connector assembly. You will also need to remove the plastic part at the bottom of the bag, you can usually use a flat blade screwdriver to pop that plastic part off. Turn your bag inside out and if you have a canister vacuum, vacuum the bag off the best that you can. If you do not have a canister vacuum, you could hose the bag off with a spray nozzle to get rid of any excess dirt. You then want to soak the bag in hot water with the Oreck Enzyme Odor Eater or with a good quality soap. I work at an Oreck store on weekends and we do this frequently. The Enzyme odor eater works great and leaves a nice smell behind in the bag fibers. We usually soak it overnight and then rinse the bag real well and then let it hang dry. If it is a nice sunny day, you can hang it outside and it should dry in 3 to 4 hours. Then you just reverse the process to put everything back together. Hope this helps!

Hi, I have a Dirt Devil Model # M08100REDC. I desperately need to change the bag, but I don't see an obvious way to do it. I'm afraid to try pulling on the cloth tab thingy that's just below the handle,...


You can pull on the tab to remove the bag, but probably a better way is to gently pull on the rubber ring that attaches the bag to the back of the vacuum body. If you don't yank and ****, it should come off without spilling the dirt. There may also be a paper bag actually catching the dirt inside the cloth bag. If there isn't, I recommend you get a package of those. They come in packs of three, and they're disposable -- instead of emptying them, you toss them and install a new paper bag.

My vacuum shuts off while I am vacuuming. Why does it do this?


Make certain you have the correct bag installed, that the bag does not have a tear in it, and that the hose leading from the floor head, up to the bag, does not have a tear in it.

Also make sure the beater bar belt is not rubbing against anything, and that the beater bar can turn freely only against motor resistance.

The only reason vacuums cut-out during use is because they get too much air (missing or torn bag, bad or missing suction hose, rubbing belt or beater bar rotation restriction). There is a small chance the motor has a problem, but a very small chance.

Oreck Celoc Hypo Allergenic Vac tearing up rug


Most parts and service are covered on those machines for a year. (the 5 year part is just the motor and some "fluff" for advertising purposes) I would call oreck and find the nearest warranty service center. You should find they will fix it at no charge as long as its not deemed "abuse".

If you call them and they will not help, repost and we'll get you fix'd up!

Best of Luck!

Rollers are to low and tearing up carpet.


unfortunatly you cant adjust the height on that type of machine, and new carpet no matter how good or expensive can shed for up to a year, the best thing would be to buy a cheap carpet rake ( not a garden rake ) that would get up all that fluff.
