No fix. You can order a replacement bag from your local oreck dealer.

SOURCE: Having a terrible time keeping the bag attached

I would Recommend getting a docking system. its $20 and takes place of the metal clip and ensures that the paper bag and outer bag both stay in place and to ensure no leakage.

SOURCE: I have two G3 Kirby i changed the bag assembly because I got the zipper stuck on the one and the bag was full and needed changing not it won't start

Mary, It sounds like you didn't get the bag on properly. When putting it on the neck you must turn it until the small lever on the side of the machine is depressed. This is a safety switch so that the unit cannot be run without a bag. Once it is properly installed it should run for you.

Hi, I purchased a used Oreck BB870-AD canister vacuum cleaner, but it didn't come with the manual or any bags. Can you tell me where I can find the manual & what type of bags do I need?


The manual is available as a PDF here: http://www.oreck.com/Owners-Guides . Scroll down to the Canisters section and then select the link for the Compact Canister vacuum.

The replacement bag that you should use is: Oreck Replacement Treated Filter Bags (12 pk. with
1 Micro Filter) No. PKBB12DW which cost $14.99 for each package from Oreck. On the Oreck site, these are the Hand-Vac Bags. See: http://www.oreck.com/Hand-Vac-Bags to order them online.

I hope this helps.

My Oreck XL upright vacuum is blowing air instead of sucking air.


I've solved the problem! I had exactly the same problem, with dust being sucked up properly and then some blown out where the bag connects. The XL machine has a hinged plastic dock for the bag, which slides in the dock and you then close the hinge, there's a slight click and the velcro keeps it shut. The problem is that the plastic dock is not behind the ridge, but is in front. So when you start up the bag connection is pushed forward. So:
Undo zipper, open dock hinge and push it back squeezing the panel on the cloth bag. One side will go behind the ridge and you need to push it firmly, opening it a bit if you can. It will go behind that ridge all the way round. You'll see now that the dock is firmly in place, and can be hinged closed as you did before. But instead of the joint being loose, the bag is now tight.
Mine now works fine... thanks to fixya for encouraging me to fix it! I was close to binning the machine. But it sucks well, and I don't go for bagless... like my dirt packaged for disposal. And if you're a farmer, try farmideas.co.uk !!!!

I have an oreck upright cleeaner I have not used for a while where I put bag on is the attachment 2 part because bag will not stay on.


you should have a velcro bag holder slide the bag opening onto the velcro bag housing after it is folded down then with the bag in place swivle the bag housing to the velcro and it should snug up to the inlet tube where all of the debris is vacuumed into , let me know if this helps?? thanks The Vacuum Doctor Don Alb,NM

It stopped sucking but the brush still spins.


Hi! You have most likely, A blockage. Open up your zipper, take the paper bag out. Inspect the opening where you bag attaches. Do you see debris? If you do, try pulling it out. Now, you might want to do this next step outside, or in the doorway, or garage. With the nozzle facing away from you, turn on the machine, you still have the bag out, and the zipper undone, this will tell you if the clog is further down. Air should burst out of the opening. Be careful, because debris could also burst out. If this is the case, then you shoul;d be able to replace your bag, and zip it up and get to vacuuming. If not, then you need to unhook the bag from th front bottom of the cleaner and uhnhook the wand. It either turns counter-clockwise, or has a rubber covered release button. Here you should be able to see further blockage. Somtimes you can reach the blockage from the bottom of the cleaner where the opening is in the nozzle. Do all of this with the cleaner unplugged for safety. With these steps, you should be able to free the clog and get back to vacuuming. Oreck is nice because without all the bells and whistles it is a pretty easy machine to keep maintainanced. Remember to have your vacuum checked out at least once a year by a qualified vacuum doctor. Hope this helps. Thanks, Rene (The Vacuum Doctor)
