Put the outer bag back on the unit. Make sure that you have pushed the outer bag down past a black lip. The piece that holds the inner and outer bag on the vacuum needs to be put on next. The small horseshoe shaped plastic piece goes on with hte open part down. Make sure that the docking station goes behind the lip I told you about. Next put the piece that the inner bag slides into on. This should have the bag back on the vacuum and ensure that it is on properly. If not, then it will pull of pretty easy and blow dirt into the outer bag...not the one that is meant to catch the dirt....I am a manager of an Oreck store.
My oreck xl was leaking bad at the internal bag entrance. I found out that the outer bag was not seated in all the way to where it snaps completly over the retainer lip on the plastic part on the tube. Once I did that, I then put the docking station on, again making sure it was seated all the way, and finally the inner bag. The problem was alot better.
well if you must clean it,,(not a good idear to do so) you could throw it in the washer by its self! but its far better to put a new cloth bag into the vaccum cleaner,, a washed cloth bag wont work half as well as a new bag will,,all you will get is even more dust out of it,,,thats twice the cleaning,, buy a new bag and save the time and work
Slide the plastic piece off the cloth bag and open the top. Looking down into the cloth bag, you will see the old bag. It is secured to the machine near the top. You will find the cardboard collar about a third of the way down. Remove it carefull. Now, stand BEHIND the machine and put your knee against the back of the handle and taking the new bag, open the hole in the cardboard collar and insert the bag into the cloth bag and put the cardboard collar onto the handle fitting. It helps to put the lower part of the hole on first and then press the top of the collar onto the handle fitting. The idea of standing behind with your knee against the handle is so that as you attach the bag, you will be pushing against your knee which will steady the machine and allow you to use the required force to complete the action. Once completed, fold the top of the paper bag down, so that when you replace the top slider, the paper bag is NOT clamped between the cloth bag and the slider.
