Make certain the yellow retaining latch is DOWN. Sometimes it LOOKS like it is all the way down when it isn't. Chances are, the tanks outlets were not properly greased, causing an o-ring to stick or roll off the seat.

Simply push down on the tank HARD at the top of the handle. You may have to strike it a few times but it will come off. It is best to do so in the upright position, rather than with the wheels extended. Once it is off, check the o-rings, re-seat if needed and apply some white grease to enhance the seal and prevent future sticking.

Oreck xl won't start


This could be for various reasons. Check the power cord and try a different outlet first. See if the power cord is loose or damaged. Next check the brushroll and belt that those are in working order. If you smelt burning or electrical fire or your vacuum made an odd noise before stopping it may be the motor going bad. If your power cord is good and the brushroll and belt good, it is probably your motor going bad.
