Question about Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum

Oreck XL Roller-Disassembly

Thank you so much for your kindness. If I attempt this would I try and unthread it? If so, clockwise or CCW? Also, any recomendations on what to use to pry the end off? I'm afraid I'll break the plastic ends if use force on them.

I do thnk this is a replacement that I got from eBay. I've had to replace too many of these damn things because of the same reasons. I've never had roller get to the stage where it wore out.

I always get confused, but I think it is clock wise. Stick a small blade screw driver under the end cap and pry out, it should pop off, it covers a bearing. That is the problem with the Oreck brush rolls, the ends go bad long before the bristles get worn down.

The roller brush on my Oreck XL Classic has only center bristles. Both sides have been worn down to nothing. It is hard to push.Why are the bristles wearing down?


Sounds as if the wheels are collapsed on one side and the brush is harder in contact on one side. In correct alignment the brush should just kiss the top of the carpet causing the bristles to flex a little.

Suction problem


Probably have a clog some where in the base and that is what causes it to throw stuff back out.

Roller on upright vacuum is not spinning so vacuum is not picking up dirt


Hello,

Any time that a vacuum's roller brush stops spinning, this means that your belt has either stretched so much that it's fallen off of the motor, or that your belt has broken.

Here's a very helpful video on how you can replace the belt on your Oreck. This will give you step by step instructions on the belt change.

If you need to purchase a new belt, here's a direct link to a 3 pk. of belts that are used on your Oreck XL upright on our website:

I hope that this video repair was helpful to you! Please be sure to rate my repair helpful by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top of this repair page.


Thank you,

The roller on my Oreck XL won't roll when it's on carpet.


That means that the belt is stretched. You need to replace it. Here are the belts you need:

My Oreck has become very hard to push across carpet


IF IT PUSHED EASILY ON THE SAME CARPET BEFORE, THEN THE BRUSHROLL IS NO LONGER CONTACTING THE CARPET IT USED TO. A NEW BRUSHROLL AND/ OR BELT SHOULD GET YOU MOVING AGAIN. TRY THE BELT FIRST, MUCH CHEAPER.

IF YOU HAVE RECENTLY CHANGED THE BELT BY REMOVING THE BASEPLATE (NOT THE RECOMMENDED WAY) CHECK BASEPLATE TO MAKE SURE IT IS FLUSH WITH HOUSING.

While vacuuming it's unusually hard to push.


Hi,
I see your post is from May. I just joined Fixya this month so, id you're still looking for a solution, I would saythe belt broken or is so stretched the roller isn't spinning. Here is an link to an online guide with illustrations for changing belt. Also check the roller brushes for wear and change if necessary. Hope this helps.
