    The inner bag on mine had split, and so I first had to vacuum out the inside of the cloth bag. I have a front-load washer, and so I just threw it in with some Tide and it came out good as new, and smelled good, too!

How do I replace the OUTER bag on my Oreck XL2200?


Depends on whether you have a bag dock or not. If you have a bag dock, squeeze the inside part where it hinges and pull off the outer part, then spread the inner part and pull off of the handle tube. Then you can pull the outer bag off of the same handle tube connection and then disconnect from the bottom. Installation is just the reverse of taking it off. If you do not have a bag dock, there is a "U" shaped clip that goes over the top of the bag connection on the handle tube. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pry up on the clip and pull it off. You can then pull your bag off the handle tube and disconnect at the bottom and replace your bag. Hope this helps!

How do I remove outer bag of oreck vacuum cleaner XL 9000W and how do I clean it? Removable bag broke and outer bag filled up with dirt.


If there is a bag dock on it, seperate large part of bag dock from smaller one, by squeezing bottom of bag dock to release tabs from larger one. Pull smaller part of bag dock apart and off of vacuum. Bag will now release from hole. If there is no bag dock, there is a metal piece around hole that is holding other bag on.

Outer Oreck xl bag is full of dirt


Make sure that your bag is pushed all the way past the lip on the connector tube and that the "U" shaped part of the plastic assembly is in it's slot behind that lip, or it will not seal properly and you will get dust into the outer bag.

Blue plastic bag holder on oreck upright detached - how to put it back in?


Amy, not sure from your description whether the outer part is what came off or the smaller, inner part came off. If it is the outer part, all you need to do is squeeze the two prongs of the inner part of the bag holder together and slip the two pegs into the holes on the outer part of the holder. If the inner part came off then you have to spread it, so that it will go over the opening on the handle, and then follow the directions I gave to install the outer part. Hope this helps.

I would really like to wash the outer bag of my vacuum, but I have a problem. I can remove the outer bag from the vacuum, but the plastic 'frame' that is inside the outer bag is sewn to the bag. So what...


Hi,

you can wash the bag. However you cannot wash the bag in the wash machine. What you will want to do is look for the screw or depending on the model, untwist the cap down on the rod next to the machine. that entire pole section will come off of the unit below with the bag there.

I recommend if it is warm outside to use the garden hose to spray it and scrub inside the bag with a scrub brush and some dish soap.

I usually throw them into the laundry sink and let soak, scrubbing with soap and water.

To dry the bag, a hairdryer or hang to dry before putting the piece back onto the machine.

Good luck.

I need to remove the outer bag from my Kirby upright. The inner bag was not attached and there is mung everywhere.


In order to remove the outer jacket from your Kirby do the following.
Detach the top bag clip from the handle support. There is a plastic piece, just below the outer jacket, called the mini emptor. Turn it to the right to remove the entire bag assembly. Removing the outer jacket is dificult and even harder to put back on so this is what I would do.
Unzip the outer jacket as you were going to change the bag. Remove the paper bag. You will then see a long black tube, that has a 90 degree elbow at the top. That elbow is attached to the inside of the bag with a snap type strap. Remove the strap, then you will be able to move the tube, while you clean out the inside of the bag. When finished put everything back where it was.

I bought a Kirby Diamond Ultimate G on ebay and I'm happy with it but the outside bag smells strongly of cigarette smoke. How do I clean the bag so I don't smell smoke when I vacuum?


Greetings from GoVacuum,

Actually you can even wash this outer bag in the washing machine under a gentle cycle. It's best however not to put this in the dryer, but instead let it air dry completely before using it again in the vacuum cleaner.

You can remove the outer bag by first unclipping the top of the bag from the handle. If you look up at the top where the vacuum bag and the handle meet, on teh backside you can push the arm that the bag connects up into, allowing the bag to fall down. Then you'll need to remove the boot, or the mini emptor part at the bottom of the bag.

Standing on the side of the vacuum cleaner, with the bag right in front of you, grab the plastic boot part of the bag with both hands, and rotate the boot away from the vacuum cleaner, or counter clockwise until it is released from the vacuum cleaner. It may take some elbow grease, but this boot will come off I promise.

Once you have the outer bag off of the vacuum completely, make sure to remove the inner disposable bag first before washing the outer bag. If you'd rather not throw this into the washing machine, you may also just let the outer bag sit in a sink or tub full of hot water and simple green, then take it outside and use the garden hose to rinse it off. Again VERY IMPORTANT do NOT use the vacuum again until the bag has completely dried.

If you have any questions, or would like some clarification, please email me at chris.jones@govacuum.com and I'll be happy to answer any further questions or concerns.

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Yes, you certainly can take off the outer bag of your Oreck and wash it in the washing machine. You DO NOT however want to put the bag through the dryer!!!!! Just hang the bag outside, and let it air dry. It is important to make sure that the bag is 100% completely dry before you use the machine again. If the bag is wet, it will cause dirt to turn to mud in the bag, and probably cause a foul odor when you use the bag.

There are 2 different types of bag systems with Oreck vacuums. The one pictured below is the older style that uses a metal clamp to hold the bag in place. The newer docking system, will be a white plastic clamp that holds the outer bag in place. They both will be removed the same way however. Simply take a screwdriver and pry off the clamp;

Once you have removed this clamp, simply pull the outer bag off. Once it has been washed, and the bag is 100% completely dry, put the outer bag back over the bag housing as far as it will go. When you put the clamp back on, it is imperative that the clamp go behind the plastic ridges, to ensure that it is tightly fastened. If the clamp is not put on correctly, this will cause the inner paper bag to fall off during vacuuming. Make sure that the clamp is in the right position when putting the bag back;

If you have any further questions, please feel free to email them to me. I really enjoy sharing my knowledge an passion about vacuum cleaner, and vacuum repairs. We do stock all Oreck parts, so if you need any parts, please let me know.

This is a generation 4 tech drive it doesn't pick up well at all please help!!!!


These machines are virtuall impossible to block,
If the motor is running, ie you can hear it and the front brush roll is rotating, indicated by the green LED (light) on the left hand side then I would suggest the problem is with the bag or fan, Check the bag, take the inner bag out completely and turn the machine on, you should get good air flow out of the hose connection where the bag attached. if it is ok try a new bag.
Note the type of bag makes a big difference use only kirby bags, not cheap copies from the market.
If poor air flow, Large debris is captured at the bottom of the outer bag assembly, check this is clear by removing the outer bag, undo the clip at the top, twist at the bottom to detach from the vacuum, check inside for debris or blockage.
If it is not the bag check the condition of the fan, remove the front brush assembly and inspect the fan, usually a good indicator of a damaged fan is excessive noise.
