I had the same problem...kept pushing the reset button on the plug, but continued to shut off. Took it to my local electrician, who removed the plug w/reset and replaced it with a regular plug...works fine now. Must've been a short in the reset part...sometimes simpler is better! Cost me $7.00, lots cheaper than a new machine or the $100 repaire quote from oreck!

Sounds like the Oreck is clogged. You'll have to undo the bag by the way of the clip in the middle at the back of the main black spindel neck and then at the bottom. Then take apart the main neck by pushing the rubber mounts upwards to release the pip fitting locks and holes. You should find that either the top of the neck or the bottom - where the dust channel feeder is located - is clogged. Either that or there may be a clog in the main dust channel after the roller brush or wedged into the fan unit itself - the Oreck XL is a dirty fan system which means clogged dirt can often get stuck between the dirt and the dirt channel.

SOURCE: my Oreck vacuum cleane won't turn on

I have an Oreck vacuum. My son used it just earlier today and it worked just fine, then just a little while ago a tried to turn it on to vacuum our bedroom and suddenly it won't turn on! I tried plugging it into other outlets but it was no use. My husband takes a look at it and first thinks that the switch is out in it. He takes the handle apart and quickly realizes that it is not the switch that is causing the problem. Then he took the base of the vacuum apart, removes the spin brush part and cleans it off, puts it back together, and suddenly it works! He said that when those brushes get real dirty the motor gets clogged, then it just won't turn on. I'm just happy I married someone who can figure these things out, because even if I knew the problem I'm still no good with a screwdriver, taking things apart and putting them back together again. Hope this works for your Oreck too and it's running again for you soon.

SOURCE: Hoover steam vac..F7452-900. not working in wash-auto rinse mode

It is not the pump. If it sprays on rinse the pump is fine. An easy test is to plug in the accessory hose and the spray nozzle hose. If it shoots liquid, there is no pump problem.
You have a bad solenoid. There are two solenoids that control water/solution flow after the pump. A gravity solenoid and a pressure solenoid. The acessory wand byasses both solenoids which makes for a good test.
If you are getting rinse water then the gravity solenoid is fine. If you are not getting solution then the pressure solenoid is bad. Part number 25686056, 14 bucks at ereplacementparts.com. Is not a big deal to replace if you are comfortable tearing apart your carpet washer. Its the solenoid on the right side of the cleaner if you are standing in front of it.

Sounds like the roller is jammed up. The motor keeps driving the belt, but for some reason the belt cant drive the roller. The smoke is coming from the belt, Clean the junk out from the roller.

The water is not coming out to clean the floor


Your unit uses water, correct? I have a Proheat 2X and it wouldn't dispense water. I tried the Water Rinse setting and found water came out and was suctioned properly, but on the Light Clean, Normal Clean, and Heavy Traffic settings, the unit failed to do anything. Problem may be with leaving the soap dispenser in-place, which might scum up the tubing.

SO, an alternative to throwing out my unit and buying somethign else was to put one capful of the Bissell soap in the water resevoir and keep the unit on Water Rinse. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY NOW. Don't know if this will help, but at least I didn't have to buy a new unit. Rinse everything after using and there's been no problem.

Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks


a) make sure that there is not a place for a stair attachment. If
there is make sure air is not leaking through where the attachment goes
on because of damaged or misplaced fitting.

b) some steam vacs leave water behind them and **** up in front of
them. If you just walked forwad with the steam vac nothing would be
sucked into the tank.

c) try taking your finger off the trigger and using the steam vac. If
the tank still empties the trigger is stuck open.

d) try putting clean water in the dirty water tank only and using it on
a dry rug. If water goes somewhere from the dirty water tank you have
a leak.

e) take apart what you can and look at the parts. A good visual
inspection can solve many of these types of problem if you are careful
not to miss anything.

Older Oreck XL, new belt, new bag, checked for clogs, does not pick up
as it used to, and, much harder to push, seems to grab or drag, why????


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. There are a couple of things that may work. Depending on if you have the old style brushroll you can upgrade to a new style Oreck brushroll that has twice the brushes and will a work a lot smoother. Also, clean the bottom plate – get rid of any dust and dirt build up and then spray the bottom with silicone and let it dry after you have totally cleaned it. Always use Oreck genuine belts and to change the belt every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning and store the extra Oreck belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator, other wise if you have a new belt, gag, you have checked for clogs there is no reason why it should be hard to push, if the silicone does not work replace the bottom plate.

How to clean the dirt cup
Posted by Deneece on May 05, 2008
How do you clean the "bagless dirt cup" for my Oreck Cordfree Electrik Broom? I do not have an instruction manual since it was given to me.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The best way to clean a dirt cup is to wash it with soap and water and dry it thoroughly so that there is not water or moisture, do NOT however get the filter wet because it will lose filtration and the best way to clean the filter is to brush off the dirt, wipe off the dirt on the filter, or replace the filter id dust and dirt are getting through, other wise wash the cup only with soap and water. Also contact your local vac dealer or Oreck Store in your area or the Oreck factory @ the number listed below t get a new owner’s manual. So feel free to contact your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Oreck belts keep coming off


If the pulley on the brush roll is worn, then I would replace the brushroll. Look at the ends where the brush roll sits in to make sure the casing hasn't over heated and not holding the brush in place. Also make sure the motor is shifting and causing the belt to come off. Another is if you are catching a rug or towel, that also will cause the belt to come off. I am assuming you using a new belt and not a worn one. After only a short time, belts stretch and need to be replaced.
