Question about Oreck Vacuums
Water canister won't release from unit
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.
