Yeah, I had this happen to one of mine, the motor bearing siezed. Even though mine had run out of warranty and I kludged a fix for it Oreck replaced it anyways after inspecting the unit.

Temporary kludges that worked: light machine oil on the motor bearing, flipping the motor over internally, turning the unit on its edge so that it rides on a 'fresh' part of the bearing, running the unit on 'high' while I was out of the house.

You should send the unit back! I think they give a very long warrenty if I remember right.

It sounds to me by your description, like the fan bearnings may have seized.

You could check to see if there is any obstruction to the fan, but I would doubt that since they are normaly protected from being able to have access to its blades.

I need instruction on how to clean my Oreck XL.


Unplug the unit before cleaning. Wipe off the cabinet with a soft cloth and a mild non-abrasive cleanser.

To clean the electronic collector, loosen the front grill retainer screw then press in the lock and remove the grill. Pull out the collector by the tabs on the sides using both hands. Snap off the charcoal filter from the back of the collector. Then slide off the pre-filter. Spray the pre-filter and the collector with the Oreck Assail-a-Cell cleanser and then let stand for a few minutes before rinsing with water. Otherwise, soak the pre-filter and the collector in warm water (bathtub or sink) with mild dish detergent. Soak for 2-3 hours. Rinse well.

Then allow the parts to dry for completely before reassembling the air purifier. Air dry only.

Pictures to go with the Oreck XL Professional Air Purifier cleaning directions are in the manual. It is available here: http://www.oreck.com/PUG/3323-8889-Rev-K-AIR8.pdf . See page 5.

I hope this helps.

Cleaning the top of the oreck air purifier


what i normally do, is i take off the top of the and remove the filter, the metal dust catcher, and the back filter... i was the 2 filters and rub them down. then with the metal dust catcher i take a butter knife. wrap it in a clorox wipe (making sure that no metal is exposed to scratch) then i feed it through the metal dust catcher one at a time to clean it. It took me 5 wipes to clean the whole thing. when the wipe comes out black then i rotate it. As for the top of the machine. there are 2 screws that i removed to get to the fan. when they were out i used a can of air (like you would clean a computer with) and blew out the fan... it took care of all noise and it runs just like the day i got it.

Oreck XL air purifier problems


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.
