Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Not sucking We have an Oreck XL and today it is blowing out dust instead of sucking it up. I just replaced the belt and about 6 months ago, we took it to our Oreck dealer and had it rehauled. I opened it up to check all and it all looked fine. Then I tuned on the machine while unzipped and noticed that the bad does not inflate as it used to. What can I do? Thanks, Connie [email protected]


Answers :

You probable have a clog in the handle tube, or at the bottom, either by the brush or in the neck where the handle goes into. Unscrew that big black nut and pull the handle off of the bootom asm, then you can check it out and see where the clog is. Pull the bottom plate off to see if it is there where the dirt goes in.

My Oreck XL upright is blowing out instead of sucking in. I changed the bag and cleaned the brushes; I also cleaned out the main "pipe." I looked for a place to change settings and couldn't find any, so I know I didn't inadvertently switch something. The brushes seem to be spinning at the correct speed. Thank you, Julia Byrem
