Oreck vacuum is blowing out air and not sucking up dust. Why is it doing that???


Most likely the air passage from the motor to the bag is clogged.

Take it outside, remove the bag, and turn it on. That may blow the clog out. If not, open it from the bottom, and try to snag the clog out.

Not sure if i've got the bag installed properly. won't pick up anything.


When you turn the motor on, the bag should inflate quickly and firmly. If the bag does not inflate, you probably have an obstruction in the handle tube. The tube can be disassembled to remove the plug.

My Oreck XL is shooting dust out from the roller when I try to vacumn


This is a sign that the bag is full or there's a clog in the air flow piping. Check behind the brush for clogs and remove if there is. Open the cloth bag, remove the paper bag, and check inside the tube. If no blockage is visible, drop a coin or marble down the opening and see if it rolls out. If not, there's a clog that needs removed. You can use an air pressure hose to blow it out..

My oreck vacuum has stopped sucking up things.


It won't turn the brush because the belt is stretched or broke from the heat of sucking something too big up. If you have your service manual it should show you the location of the belt covers to replace it.

My Oreck XL is very dirty inside on fan and the motor runs very loud. It is not clogged.


These units are called dirty air units because the dirt literraly runs thru the fan attached to the motor and is blown into the bag. Most newer vacuums are called clean air because the filter bag is in the path, and the dirt is sucked into the bag, never reaches the fan or motor.

I'd say if it is that dirty, may be a fire hazard, and you may have worn out the seals on the part down at base that pivots to a point that replacement is necessary.

(I'd blow out the dust and keep using if it was me, and then check again in a few weeks, before I replaced. But I like living dangerous.)

The bag blows off my Oreck as soon as I turn it on


Follow the directions. With Oreck OEM bags they should attach easily. You need press the cardboard frame over the small nodules on the bag holder and they will stay in place

Burning smell and not picking up


check for blockabe in bag inlet area, or bottom of unit by intake pivot.
ez check is to feel if bag blows firmly up with air when on, if not, you have a blockage.

Oreck Vacuum troubleshooting


Hi. If the motor is on its way out the motor noise will be eratic eg slowing down speeding up popping noise & a smell of electrical burning. If you have none of these symptoms then chances are its not the motor. Does the bag inflate or is it easy to collapse when you push the bag ? If bag inflates ok check belt. If bag not fully inflating check for blockages along length of the handle pipe its designed to pull apart by lifting up rubber sleeve at machine end of pipe, push ball latch in & pull pipe out remove any debris stuck in the pipe. Remove bbottom of machine as if replacing belt check to see if there is any debris stuck in the oppening that goes to motor fan, then check the fan blades you can see them through the port is there any missing or snapped off. If blades are missing or have big chunks missing you will need to replace. If fan only has minor bits missing then reassemble it should now worl well.
