Having problems with your Vacuums ?

When replacing the beater bar on the Oreck XL upright with a new bar, what way do the words "new" and "old" on the ends of the bar face?

Answers :


I don't really understand your question, but I believe you are trying to replace the beater bar of your Oreck XL.... Follow the below instructions on how to replace your vacuum's beater bar:

Turn your upright vacuum cleaner or the vacuum head upside down to check the beater bar. It will be located at the front edge of the unit.

Remove the clips at each end, take out the drive belt, and lift the beater bar out of the vacuum cleaner unit. Disassemble the beater bar by removing the end cap and the flange. Pull the brush out of the vacuum cleaner case. Or Rotate beater bar end tabs forward, away from the body of the vacuum. Lift the end of the beater bar, and twist the beater bar free of the belt.

Then pass the new beater bar through the belt loop so that the belt passes over the beater bar belt track.

Push the beater bar end tabs down and rotate the tabs back, toward the body of the vacuum, locking the beater bar in place.

I hope the above helps to solve your problem, if not, let me know so that I can direct you further.

Good luck.

Kirby Heritage II. Beater bar does not turn. One end rotates freely, but the other sticks, preventing the bar from rotating. No obvious means to disassemble the end of the bar. Is there a way to repair this, or does this require replacement of the beater bar? Did clean the front end assembly, and removed all hair, threads and similar obstructions.

The bearing is bad on the end that turns hard. You will need to purchase a new brush roll assembly. If the roller is older that 4 or 5 years, it should be changed anyway. The brush strips that scrub the carpet loose their strength after many years of ... Vacuums

The original belt on my upright Kenmore Progressive broke and I replaced it with the spare that was in the vacuum. The vacuum and spare belt are about 10 years old. Then the spare broke after one vacuuming session and there was a burning smell coming from the vacuum. I ordered new belts and replaced it with the new belt. It seems to be working fine with no smell. I checked the belt after I vacuumed the family room and although it was in tact, the belt was very hot. Is that normal? Should t

I have the Eureka 4870 "The Boss" Smart Vac. The beater bar began to turn constantly and can't be shut by moving the Brush Roll Contol to Bare Floor position or the machine to the upright postion. It has also eaten two new belts. A local tech says he has seen this problem whereby the free-wheel assembly that makes contact with the belt to engage the beater bar is misalgned and cannot disengage. It is usually the chassis which would mean replacement of enough parts that would not be worthwhile
