Question about Oreck XL Professional Air Purifier
I have two units, one will no longer run on silent mode, and the other the red light will not go off even after repeated cleanings. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
You probably have an open circuit in the high voltage circuit. Most likely cause is a broken or disconnected wire. The high voltage wires are very small diameter stainless steel and are connected to alternating aluminum plates by a crimp connection at the ends of the plated. If you insert an object like a brush or wood tongue depressor/popsickle stick in to scrub the plates during cleaning you run the risk of pulling the wires lose or worst case, breaking them. If you just pulled some loose they can be repaired ( I know because I have done it) but you have to partially disassemble the cleaner cartridge to get to the end of the plate(s) with the disconnected wire(s), open the tab that grips the wire, insert the wire in the tab, re-crimp it, and then re-assemble the cleaning unit. I would rate it as moderately difficult. Be careful in bending all the tabs as they are aluminum and will break if bent too much or too many times. Good luck.

Oreck Xl hums and the wheel goes around fast but it is not the normal sound.... I know it isn't cleaning properly. It will stop after awhile too.

You can hold the red button in and it will go off after a minute or less. Then it resets to green.
