1 Answer

I purchased a Seal-A-Meal roll to make my own bags but can't figure out how to use it. I have a model VS108. Is it possible to seal without vacuuming?


On most models of vacuum sealing systems, you cut off the roll the size of bag you need. Slip one open end of the bag just on top of the heating element over it about 1/8-1/4" and press down the lid to seal the bottom of the bag. Fill the bag and then place the open end far enough into the vacuum cavity over the heating element and close the lid and press down and hold until the cycle finishes. If you don't want a vacuum, just put enough bag material to cover the heating element but not into the vacuum cavity. Hope this helps

My Rival food saver does not vacuum air out


We discovered we were not moving the bags in far enough to be grabbed properly. After pushing in the bag before closing the unit we found it started sealing properly. This was on an older system, so be sure the bags you're sealling are between the black rubber rectanglar sections before closing the door.

If this is for a canister, be sure the rubber around the lid is seated properly. The rubber can be removed, cleaned and wiped dry. Clean out the lid and dry it too. Reseat the rubber seal and try again... Hope this helps.

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.

Lid won't close


You might have the vacuum bag in incorrectly. Pull your vacuum bag all the way out, and check the cardboard for arrows (as some bags are cut to go in one way, and one way only). If your vacuum has a cartridge that the vacuum bag goes into, make sure that this is seated completely, securely, and correctly. After you have checked all of this, seat your lid meaning make sure it is going to sit correctly on the housing, then as you are closing the lid, check the latch as it begins to close - making sure that the male and female portions are going to match up. You may have to give it a little pressure, but should not have to put enough pressure to break anything. Good luck.

I can not find how to get the canister apart to empty the dirt.


From the bottom of your machine going upwards past the handle that is on the canister portion of this vacuum, you will see that the top of that canister had a depression where you should be able to put your fingers in, and gently pull that lid back, opening the vacuum bag compartment. According to the manual, simply pull that back, exposing the bag. To remove the bag, pull the cardboard plate on the top of the bag, out towards the no open face. Throw away your old bag, and take your new bag, fold down the paper sides of the bag, then slide the new bag into the track completely. Close your lid, and you are done.
While you have this compartment open, it's a good idea to check your filter that sits below the paper bag.

I hope this helps you.

Getting the vacuum to start after replacing the bag


Behind the door and above where the bag is located there should be a piece of plastic, or metal that sticks out, at least in the manual, if the door isn't shut correctly, that piece doesn't push in the switch that is behind there, this is a safety feature built into a lot of vacuums, to keep people from running the vacuum without a bag in it. Most likely your lid just didn't shut completely. Check for that, and get back to me.

Vacuum bag busted


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.

Electrolux epic keeps shutting down - ? symbol is on


The "?" sign is usually indicating that there is no bag in the machine. On the Canadian models, there is a switch that the cardboard of the bag pushes on when the lid is closed. If this switch is not depressed, then the machine will not run. Again, on the Canadian models, there is a clear plastic "pin" extending out the bottom right corner of the bag compartment and is pressed in when the bag is installed and the lid closed. You should be able to press this in and start the machine with the main switch, just to test it.
