Having problems with your Oreck XL2000 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Oreck XL How to remove rear wheel. Removed all viewable hair, thread, etc., but one wheel is still hard to turn. I think there's hair stuck inside the wheel core. Can I remove the wheel & take it off the metal post?

Answers :

You can take a medium size flathead screwdriver and slide it in beside the wheel and under the pin. Then pry carefully on one side and then the other it will start to come out but work both sides alternately so you won't put too much pressure on the plastic. Once it is out you can clean it and put it back in. Line up the pin and use a blunt end tool like a punch to tap it back in. You can use the same screwdriver but don't hit it too hard. You can tell when it is in all the way when it bottoms out. Make sure you look closely at it before you take it out so you will know what it is suppose to look like.

I want to open a Hoover S3825 Elite Cyclonic Vacuum to see if I can repair or replace the cord reel assembly. Currently the reel slowly draws the cord back into the canister once it is pulled out. I found the mounting screws under the rear wheels once I removed the hub but I do not know how to remove the rear wheels, everything is plastic. The front screws are under the front caster wheels and I think I need to take a screwdriver and pry off the little cylinder wheel to get to them by rotating

Both of the wheels are wobbly and loose on my Kenmore upright vacuum model 721.37060. I don't see where I can remove them to analyze and fix the problem, which seems to be that the wheels are loose on their axels. How do I get the wheels off and what do you think I'll find inside?

Most if not all vacuums have an access panel on the bottom.It may be held on by a couple of big plastic clips,the kind you squeeze together and it releases a door.Some have plastic screws.There may also be a couple of phillips screws along with it or ... Kenmore Vacuums

Stuck Roller Same problem here. I think in our case, the accumulation of hair and the increasing resistance the hair created over time caused the hair to start melting, and eventually the end cap was stuck to the roller, which prevented the roller from turning. I cleaned out the melted hair(?) as best I could, but I think I need to order a new roller and end caps.

Befrore you plunk your $ down ...\015\012\015\012I dont now that you melted the hair so much as you may have an accululation of gunk and hair. If there is a good (not 'fast food' type) auto parts store near you, go there and ask the cou ... Electrolux 1910 Bagless Upright Vacuum

My wind tunnel had a lot of dog hair at the intake hole from my renter that used it. I was able to remove it, but is it possible there is hair up inside beyond the hole & how would I remove it? it is not picking up dog hair .

I have a DC07 and the brush wasn't rotating and I had no suction at the brush but perfect suction through the hose. I noticed a large build up of dog hair around the brush so I took off the cover plate and removed all the hair, cleaned inside the floor/brush housing and cleaned out the hose. I also cleaned the filter and removed the other air access cover and made sure that they were clear. I put everything back and the brush still doesn't turn and there is still no suction through the bottom

How to take apart the Hoover U6437-900 to change the belt and clean it. I have the belts and I have removed several screws. It looks like the knobs for the wheel carpet height and carpet to floor selection are the problems but I can not figure out how to remove the knobs. Besides, I am not certain if this is the problem. Do you have the instructions? Thanks

We have a new hoover bagless that is a couple months old. The pet hair attachment stopped working. I disassembled it found lots of hair wound around the various rollers and removed - painstakingly thorough i might add. Problem is the brush still wont spin and now the belt seems loose - I think I put it all back together correctly but wondering if there is a trick to this?

Without the model number, I can't look it up, but this has a 1 years warranty on it, maybe take it to a warranty shop. Just take proof of purchase, model and serial numbers. ... Vacuums

Brushes stopped The brushes stopped turning while using the cleaner. I removed the brushes to see if the spindle was broken, it wasn't. I then removed the top plastic cover and checked the switch that engages the brushes; it didn't seem to be moving correctly. There's one spring on the switch - should there be two? Or do you think something has broken on the inside? Thanks for any help

Most likely the turbine is bad, it may just be clogged up, you can take it apart and clean it out real good. That may work, but it may not. Sometimes it is best to replace the turbine. ... Hoover F7431-900 SteamVac Vacuum

I have my vacume electrical cord tangled inside and disconnected (I can see the open end of the connection from the power cord collector wheel!

I was vacuuming my room and all of a sudden I hear this loud noise, then notice the roller brush isn't spinning. Thinking too much hair was caught I separated it from the rod and hose to clean it out, but noticed that the roller brush didn't move at all while I was cleaning it. I've cleaned the brush before and it would roll around with little effort, but this time I couldn't move it at all. After removing hair and string I put the vacuum back together and started it up, but the noise continued,

It sounds like if the rod is clean then there is debree inside the roller where the rod fits in too. ... Hoover Platinum Cyclonic Bagless Canister Vacuum With Power Nozzle

The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned the brush but it does not seem to want to turn. Does this machine need to be oiled so the roller will turn? Is there a way to check inside the motor? Do you think that because the brush won't turn that is making the noise? Do you know of any repair shops in the Lake Havasu City, Arizona area?

As far as the roller brush goes, yes, it does need to be cleaned. Follow the directions to remove it and clean as best you can of all debris. On both ends of the roller brush there will be two "holders" of sort that connect the brush to the frame o ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Motor/Fan does not run. I have removed and taken the top of the canister plastic motor housing apart and tested for power.

Sebo X4 is squealing when pulled back. Takes a while after it's been running for this to happen. We changed the roller brush (needed it anyway) but didn't take care of the noise. Could the wheels be making this sound? At least that's what my staff thinks is going on... I own a commercial cleaning company and all we use are sebos... they're an amazing machine!

Yep - we think Sebos are pretty good too. I work at a Sebo sales and repair dealership! The wheels are a good bet - I can't think of anything else that might cause the noise. If in doubt, I suppose you could simply wheel one around for a while when s ... Sebo X4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Last night as I was vacuuming, I noticed that the belt stop indicator light was on. I pulled out the hair that had gotten tangled around the brush in hopes of solving the problem. It didn't change things. I then unscrewed the entire bottom piece to take out the brush roller. I removed hair from the end piece of the brush roller and reattached the belt; however, I cannot figure out where the microchip is supposed to go so that I can reassemble the base piece by screwing it back together. It seems

Not sure what you mean when you refer to a "microchip" but maybe it is a sensor that works with the belt.\015\012Anyway, if you Google the make and model number of your vacuum you can probably get an exploded view or owners manual that might indicate ... Vacuums

In the vacuum cleaner, there is hair stuck in the bottom and it won't rotate or **** up anything. How do I open that part in order to remove the hair?

I don't think you can. Sometimes the brushes can be eased out and cleaned. One end of the brush can often be pushed into the housing to enable you to lift it out. Otherwise use a comb and comb the hair out. ... Eureka Vacuums
