Question about Oreck Vacuums

Open Question

My Oreck UP350 has no suction -- I've made sure everything is cleaned out (filters, etc) that I can readily see that has to do with the suctioning process, but now instead of picking up the dirt it keeps dumping the dirt and trash on the carpet. I am at my wit's end!

First remove the mini-emptor and check for a clog also check the fan for anything cloging that or the hose may be clogged

SOURCE: Hoover Windtunnel spits dirt back out the back

Your problem sounds to be an obstruction in the foot (lower body) of the windrummel. Most all windtunnel's have a second cavity for suction to go over the top of the roller. When you remove the bottom plate, next remobe the belt and roller, under the roller will be a removable cavity, take it out. remove the dirt and clean out any debris. also check the suction path connecting hose. if your belt has not been changed in the last 12 months, I would recommend changing that as well.

SOURCE: loss of suction bissell vacume

Under the red flap in the water resevoir, there is a small screen. Pop that screen out and clean it. It is probably blocked with hair. I took my entire machine apart trying to fix this problem and I finally saw that screen. I cleaned it out and my machine works like new now.

Have you got suction just before the motor? How about air coming out the exhaust?

Vacuum not sucking up debris.


HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

Here are some general vacuum maintenance tips that will help out with your Oreck vacuums loss of suction. After applying these solutions you should see an improvement in your vacuums suction.

Lets check out your brush roll. Look for any noticeable debris, and be sure to manually rotate the brush roll to unearth any hidden clogs. If you see carpet fibers, or strands of hair remove these with a razor.

After every use, make sure to empty your unit's dust cup. Allowing for fine dust and debris to rest in your unit's dust cup for a long period may cause your unit to become clogged, which leads to poor or even no suction.

Another area to check is your vacuums hose. Stretch it out as far as you can to see of any clogs. If there is a clog in a hard to reach spot try using a broom handle to unclog it.

It is recommended to wash and clean your unit's filter weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours.

Is the belt intact? After usage the belt will stretch out and lessen the tension on the brush roll. This could be causing the brush roll to have a lack of resistance against it. You want to be sure the belt is on there nice and tight.

No suction


The hose is clogged up. Try disconnecting the hose and loosen the clog. If you try to pick up pine needles, they are sticky and will clog up any vacuum sweeper.

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel Self propelled 12amp. There seems to be very little suction. I have cleaned the hoses and filters but still not much suction. any ideas? thanks.


Make sure all filters are cleaned out and entry ways are clear of all debris. Remove hose and check for blockage. Usually the low suction can be remedied when all filters are cleaned. Hope this works for you.

My Oreck XL has quit sucking. The brush turns but


Same problem here with XL9100. Bag would not expand implying no suction. Motor ran and brushes turned. Easy disassembly using common tools found that a plastic bag had been sucked up and caused a blockage prior to the impeller. Cleaned up, reassembled, and everything worked fine after that.

Dyson suction loss


make sure the filters in the bottom are clean, then remove the canister and you will need to clean it thouroughly, pay close attention to the upper section inside where the "cones" come togetheri have read that they are prone to clog up here and lose suction, google dyson suction loss or how to clean a dyson ect...pay attention to getting the rod that releases the bottom to dump back in the correct place or it will not work right. a few write ups tell about this!
