Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My bag is brand new and is not filling up with air and picking up dirt. Oreck xl


Answers :

There may be a clog in the handle. The handle in Oreck acts like a hose to connect the floor part to the bag part. They are designed to come apart for this very reason. Inspect yours to find the diretions for clearing. No air in the bag is a dead giveaway in this case.

I just received My brand new hoover platinum lightweight upright UH30010 (with canister) which I ordered through ebay and today is just the SECOND time I used it but the check bag light indicator is already flashing. My husband and I live in a 1 bedroom (695 sq t) apartment (no kids or pets). I checked the bag and the dirt is just maybe two inches - far from the limit line showing on the bag..and I remembered the advertisement on TV that it can even last upto to six months depending on the usage


I have the same problem. If it was just an indicator light I could live with it, but mine actually shuts the vacuum off. I can only run the vacuum for 3-5 seconds before it turns itself off. Any ideas? ... Hoover Platinum Collection Upright Vacuum

My Oreck XL 9100HA started smoking (white smoke) when I vacuumed. There is a burning rubber smell. How do I check/change (if appropriate) the belt? I have no User manual, nor can I locate one on the Oreck site. The bag is a new one. The vaccuum had been picking up, though not at its best strength.


It sounds like the belt has been damaged. You can get another belt from yoru local Oreck store. You can even take it in to the store to show them what happened. Purchase another belt and replace it. (It was very easy when I did this, so hopefully ... Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum

Oreck xl doesn't pick up dirt but rather blows air out. Brush is clean but the belt and brush should be replaced however I am reluctant to put money toward vacuum if it's a broken machine. I think it's about 10 yrs old. I got it from a family member.

My Vacuum DC-17 has just quit sucking. It has been making quite a racket since I had the belt changed at a repair shop several months ago. I was told that the belt was a new design and figured that was why it was making so much noise. it seemed to work fine, was picking up dirt and all, but today, when I started vacumming, I noticed it was not sucking air either with the belt engaged or not. My vacuum is approx. 5 years old.

My electrolux oxygen cannister has the "bag change" light on when there is a new bag. The light stays on when the suction power is high (to pick up small particles) and it won't pick up, but the ight goes off when the suction power is low (to pick up big objects). I changed the hepa filter, cleaned the motor filter and changed bags, but all that didn't help.


You may have a clog in the hose, and/or the inlet by the brush roll. A clog will turn on that light as well as a full bag. ... Vacuums

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?


Sounds like you need to buy a new motor. All that grit and dust will ruin a motor and I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did.\015\012This is where a vacuum that won't run without a bag would have been nice. (Aerus for one) ... Kenmore 31913 Progressive Direct Drive Bagged Upright Vacuum
