    My new Oreck XL,(used about 10 times) has suddenly started to spit out what seems to be the contents of the bag back out onto the floor. This is a new bag, only used once, I removed the suction tube from the back and made sure it was clear, as suggested in directions. It seems to be running backwards, no suction, but adding dirt and dog hair to my floor!!! It is very frustrating. Looking for help

If it is only 2 months old, then it is under warranty, take it in for warranty repair. There may be a circuit breaker on it, usually on the back at the bottom, it there is, push it to see if it has tripped.

The neck in your power head is likely clogged. Disconnect from the wand and look inside. Also check the wand.Since you have suction on the bare floor the hose is likely not blocked.

Flip the head over and clean the metal pieces on either side if the head. When they get dirty, the tend to stick to the floor.

It might be that the beater brush is spinning when you tip it up to look at it but slight pressure of it contacting the floor is enough to stop it. If it were my machine I would remove the beater brush and clean it as best I could, paying particular attention to the end pieces on the brush that hold it in place. A little WD40 between the end pieces and some twisting to be sure it worked in well. I would then reassemble with a new belt being sure it is on correctly so it turns the brush in the proper direction.
That is about the least expensive thing(s) you can do at this point before going further. I have one more potential cause, but it is best to check these first.
Please let me know how you make out.

Simply won't turn on!


I believe all Oreck vacuums have a lifetime warranty. You should pursue that.

Oreck won't pick up dirt.


Check the roller brush, dust channel and then the back spine tubes - two parts which also holds the cloth bag - which holds it at the bottom via a spring. Unhook this, and prise up the rubber rings that hide the push in locks. Push the locks in and the spines should separate.You may need to undo the power cord since it comes out the top near the handle at the bottom. Check both spines and remove clogs with a thin round stick. Put everything back together slowly and switch on.

Not picking up dirt.


There is a Clog in the machine...
Somewhere between the motor and the bag.
When you use the machine, the dirt picked up by the roller has no place to go but backwards.
You will need to disassemble it and look for the clog.

Oreck xl


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.
