Question about Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air. It was like it was blowing dust around instead of picking it up. I checked the tubing and found that it was clogged with some paper and hair ***** etc.... So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I put it back together and used it, I thought it was better but now its leaving like a little pile of dirt or whatever when I turn it off. If I turn it on and sweep over the dirt pile it will pick it up but when I turn it off it like drops out of the vacuum on to the floor.

You have an airflow problem. You may still have a blocked intake or tube, also check the filter. The air is supposed to go in the bottom (of course) and I'm sure you k**w where it goes out. You probably can **te a reduction in exhaust. If this is a bagless make sure everything is fitting together properly. Mis-aligned components on a bagless can mean little or ** airflow. If this is **t a bagless, try changing the bag whether it is full or **t.

Throws dust all over. Missing hepa filter. Is that the problem?


Of course. The filter is there for a reason and it also maintains pressure. But also make sure that the seals to the container are good and that it is located correctly.

Dust goes to filter


is the canister sealing properly? The air enters the canister under high pressure and it should slow down greatly in there so the heavier (dust) particles will fall to the bottom of the canister and the air should then pass through the filter under a reduced pressure. If the air is easily escaping the canister area without slowing down the dust cannot settle. It should look like a cyclone in the canister, if it's not swirling in one direction but rather bouncing around, look at the inlet to the canister for build up or an obstruction also. If the canister is not sealing the the air will remain moving rapidly and carry the dust along with it. I would also check your filter for a tare along the seam.

I purchased a Dyson DC05 cleaner from a garage sale.The suction is great,however I noticed that the debris does not swirl around in the cylinder when I am vacuuming.I think the suction could be even...


Hi there VacuumGuru from Vacuumspot.com.au here. You will find there are 2 reasons will not spin in a dyson DC05. 1 is that it is missing one of the 2 parts in the dust container, there should be an upside down funnel in there and a rubber boot on it. Without those dust just goes either to the bottom of the bin or to the filter. The 2nd cause is that even though the filters have been cleaned they are simply too old. When you hold the washable filter (the one with the plastic outer and the foam insert) up to the light and take out the foam bit you should be able to see light through the filter. If not you are probably only running on maybe 80% suction which still works but isn't as good as it could be.
The filters are available here if you need them.
Hope this helps! :)
