What you may have is blockage inside the vacuum part of the unit or there is air getting in the top or sides of the receptical. See if you can gently get the receptical apart for cleaning. There may be pieces of carpet and /or hair or some obstical. This is if the vacume moter is working. IT may just be a simple thing That requies one or two screws to get the cover off.

U3120HH. Is there a height attachment so I can clean my plush carpet?


Shirley,
There is a plush carpet attachment that you can purchase for your Oreck. If you have an Oreck dealer near you, they should have one. If you are not sure where a dealer is near where you live, you can go to Oreck's website and use their dealer locator to find one.

I have installed a higher pile carpet, how can you adjust the deck of an Oreck?


To the best of my knowledge, you can not. However, there is a solution to the problem of pushing the Oreck on a high pile carpet. The more upright the handle, the harder the Oreck will be to push. The lower the angle or the closer the handle is to the carpet, the easier the Oreck will be to push. Use a straight stiff arm pointed down. More your shoulder with a near locked elbow. You will find your Oreck much, much easier to push.

My oreck rinse-o-matic vac keep shutting off while i'm cleaning. I cleaned the water out and added new, I checked to see if anything was jammed up at bottom. It keep shutting off??


I had the same problem...kept pushing the reset button on the plug, but continued to shut off. Took it to my local electrician, who removed the plug w/reset and replaced it with a regular plug...works fine now. Must've been a short in the reset part...sometimes simpler is better! Cost me $7.00, lots cheaper than a new machine or the $100 repaire quote from oreck!

Basic instructions and mixture ratio of cleaner and water


I would not leave the solution on the carpet for more than a few minutes! Clean it right away to minimize chances of bleaching out your carpet.

I have a Proheat 2X and and it would not dispense water & cleaning solution. I don't know if this will work with your unit... but I tried the Water Rinse setting and found water came out and was suctioned properly, but on the Light Clean, Normal Clean, and Heavy Traffic settings, the unit failed to do anything. Problem may be with leaving the soap dispenser in-place, which might scum up the tubing. With the dial set to "Tools", I had the same problem.

SO, an alternative to throwing out my unit and buying something else was to put one capful of the Bissell soap in the water resevoir and keep the unit on Water Rinse. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY NOW on carpet & tool settings. Don't know if this will help you, but at least I didn't have to buy a new unit. Rinse everything after using and there's been no problem.
