Question about Readivac 36721 Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Where can I get replacement bags for the Readivac Model 36721 canister vacuum?

The original that I received with an "Oreck" deal on ebay included this vacuum. I have been unable to find the correct replacements and the unit is useless at this moment without them.

SOURCE: overheated vacuum

It normally won't over heat unless the bag is too full, the filters are clogged, or you have have a clog in the hose or down by the brush roll, the inlet may be clogged. Some will restart after a while, some others have a reset to push. If it won't power on, then you have a problem and it will have to serviced.

SOURCE: Oreck Vacuum Cleaner problem (upright)

To jrican-80,

My new upright(NOT an Oreck) is over three years old and hasn't needed a new belt so far. Orecks clog very easily, and when you bring it in for repairs, or for the yearly "tuneup", what the store manager wants you to do is spend more money on the existing sweeper, new roller brush, for example. That's the reason for the yearly checkup, to BRING you back into the store so you can spend more to help Mr Oreck make more money.

Seems like you either have a connection to Oreck or simply think that an overpriced, cheaply built vacuum cleaner is actually a good machine.

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.

SOURCE: Electrolux #1521 Canister Vacuum won't stay closed

hi from uk your problem with the canister cover/door coming off whilst vaccing ? you have renewed bag ? ok but there is a filter/gauze also inside the canister where bag is fitted if you check inside you should see the filter at opposite end from where bag is secured it is usually fitted behind a slotted pull out plastic gate ? this filter/gauze is to allow air out of canister when vaccing and the filter traps any dust that may accumulate inside the canister case so the dust does not get blown out to atmosphere/rooms SO if this filter is clogged it will not allow vacced air to escape out of canister so result is build up of pressure within cylinder and eventually cover flips open ! so for now you can remove filter/gauze and wash then dry refit this will allow air to escape from canister but still retain dust particles from escaping as it is designed for however may i suggest you replace filter when convenient ? all above is on assuming that the latch on cover is working ok and not now damaged ? hope this helps best wishes

SOURCE: How do you change the bag in a kenmore progressive

There is a latch just under where the hose enters the main canister section, just behind the handle. Pull back on the latch to open the bag compartment. The bag will pull out of it's plastic holder, then slide the new bag all the way in and close the lid.

Replace motor on Oreck canister vacuum


Richard,
That motor is still available and the part # you need is
09-72158-01. It normally retails for $59.99. Not sure where you live, but you should be able to find an Oreck dealer somewhere close that maybe can get it for you. Hope this helps!

They are available from Oreck, but I bought a "filter kit" on eBay for less than the canister filter cost from the factory.

Hi, I purchased a used Oreck BB870-AD canister vacuum cleaner, but it didn't come with the manual or any bags. Can you tell me where I can find the manual & what type of bags do I need?


The manual is available as a PDF here: http://www.oreck.com/Owners-Guides . Scroll down to the Canisters section and then select the link for the Compact Canister vacuum.

The replacement bag that you should use is: Oreck Replacement Treated Filter Bags (12 pk. with
1 Micro Filter) No. PKBB12DW which cost $14.99 for each package from Oreck. On the Oreck site, these are the Hand-Vac Bags. See: http://www.oreck.com/Hand-Vac-Bags to order them online.

I hope this helps.

A friend gave me her Oreck 1400 canister vac. It's like new, but has no "filter bag carrier." Where can I get one?


Sadly, your best and probably only bet for this is either an Oreck dealer or by calling the 1-800 line for Oreck customer service.
