Question about Oreck XL2600 Vacuum

1 Answer

Vacuum stopped working

I was in the middle of vacuuming...the vacuum was making kind of a crackling sound. I looked through the back screen and saw kind of a green sparkling light...then it shut off. Now it won't turn back on. There wasn't really any burning smell either. Any ideas?

Hi Melisa
Because it has a dirty fan system where dirt is picked up and put through the fan impeller before it goes up the back spine and into the bag, it sounds like stones or hard dust has entered the fan and bounced off into the motor. Sadly this is one of the most common factors like Orecks that have a dirty fan system. It would have to be repaired unless you know how to take it apart and clear it. The green light certainly sounds like something you picked up with the Oreck and it has affected the motor.

My electrolux vacuum, model 4870 just stopped while I was vacuuming. Now it will not go on. It was working just fine a few minutes ago, then just stopped. Any ideas


it may be over heating.Check to make sure your hose and power nozzle are not plugged..Simply turning machine on without the hos then putting hose on while running and see if the motor sounds different,ie.winding up higher.....if this doesn't help try changing the bag

Hello,

If the vacuum sounds like it usually does and still doesn’t pick up, you probably need to replace the belt. To check this, turn the vacuum on and lay it down sideways. Check to see if the roller is spinning. If it's spinning, turn the vacuum off. Stand it up and turn it back on. Do you hear the roller spinning. Some belts stretch over time. If the roller was spinning when the vacuum was on it’s side and stops when the roller has some pressure on it (your carpet), change the belt.
A clogged vacuum cleaner usually sounds "clogged". The noise the vacuum normally makes will seem muffled. First, Unplug Your Vacuum. Then change the vacuum bag or empty the dirt cup. If the bag is filled up more than halfway, this could reduce your suction. Throw out the bag. Look at the area that holds the dirt cup or vacuum bag. Remove any debris. Look for a filter in this area. If you find a filter make sure it's relatively clean. A clogged filter will shorten the life span of your vacuum. Make sure your filter is back in place or replaced, and reinstall the vacuum bag or dirt cup.
A lot of the current style upright vacuum cleaners have attachments and a hose on board. If you have a vacuum hose on your upright, pull it out like your going to vacuum with it. Look at the area you removed the hose from. Remove any debris. I recommend wearing gloves, and try not to use any sharp tools like a needle nose pliers that might puncture your vacuum hose.
For the final step in this vacuum cleaner repair, place the vacuum in a position where you have a birds eye view of the bottom plate. You can usually see if there is any debris that requires removal.
Here is a link that will take you to a site that shows how to access your machine to change belt or look for clogs.

My Sharp Vacuum, Model EC-S2365 just stopped working in the middle of vacuuming. I'm not sure what happened and I can't turn it back on. Any suggestions?


Just before it shut down were you pulling on the cord? For it to shut down like that it almost sounds like the electric cord has a break in it-probably at the plug

Dyson dc07 will not lock into upright position


- Stand behind the vacuum cleaner and look at the right-hand side wheel
- Remove the AI PIPE (it has two purple buttons that you push together to lift it up and out - it looks like a Tuba)
- Lay the handle down and look for a black button that will be exposed in front of the square hole
- Stick your index finger and middle finger into the vacant AI Pipe Hole (the square hole)
- Reach over with your thumb and press the black button in front of the square hole
- Whilst pushing the black button, lift your index finger and your middle finger and move the gray plastic piece up (lift the square hole basically)
- Remove your fingers from the square hole
- Lift the handle and stand your machine back upright again
- Place the AI Pipe back into the square hole

Kirby making clicking noise
Posted by jenad on Jun 12, 2008
In the middle of vacuuming my car out, my Kirby Sentria began making a loud clicking noise, sounds like it's coming from the motor. It's never done this before. I checked for debris in the fan and removed the bag and checked there too. The vacuum still works, just not sure if I should continue to use it.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The clicking noise sound s to me that it is coming from the motor like you said and I am not sure how new the Kirby vacuum is, but if it is still under a factory warranty it is a good idea to have Kirby take a look @ the vacuum because it could be the fan, carbon brushes or something could be hitting the armature making a clicking sound and if it is the armature then I would get it check ASAP. Feel free to contact your local factory authorized Kirby dealer in your area and also I will give you the website and the customer service phone # to Kirby for further assistance. 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.

If you turn the vacuum over, you will see a hose by the brushroll. I think your problem is that it's stopped up right there. Take off the brushroll and make sure that the hose isn't stopped up. The port at the back that makes a hissing sound is to indicate that it's stopped up somewhere. Also, when you replace your attachment hose back onto the machine, does the motor change sound?? That's also another indication that your machine is stopped up. Don't lose hope for the Panasonic, they're great machines. If you still need help, you may call us at 1-866-509-1952. Thanks.
