Having problems with your Oreck XL21 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

My Oreck XL is very dirty inside on fan and the motor runs very loud. It is not clogged.


Answers :

These units are called dirty air units because the dirt literraly runs thru the fan attached to the motor and is blown into the bag. Most newer vacuums are called clean air because the filter bag is in the path, and the dirt is sucked into the bag, never reaches the fan or motor.

\015\012I'd say if it is that dirty, may be a fire hazard, and you may have worn out the seals on the part down at base that pivots to a point that replacement is necessary.

I have an older Oreck XL vacuum that sounds like it is running twice as fast as it should. I disassembled the entire vacuum, including disconnecting the motor wires, to clean out the hair, string, and other things. When I put everything back and connected all the wires, everything appears to work, including the light. The only problem is, it sounds extremely loud like the motor is running too fast. The model number is: XL3610HH Ser. No. 3610HHXA039740-6 I do not have as electrical diagram to see

FAN PROBLEM??? good morning! my vacuum smells like burnt rubber (fan perhaps) but I can't find how to get into main part of the vacuum. it's just very rounded with no latches or screws to get inside where the motor, belts and fans would be located. can you help me? thank you

Miele Cat & Dog vacuum gets VERY hot and is VERY loud. Hose has no restrictions and I have changed the dust compartment (motor) filter and the exhaust filter. It still gets hot when I run it with the top open and all filters removed, so I'm guessing the problem is with the motor. Should I be going into the motor compartment? If so, what am I looking for?


Hi\015\012\015\012The fact that it gets very hot could be due to a number of issues.,but the fact that it started making a very loud noise at the same time suggests that there might be more problems maybe brushes etc.\015\012\ ... Miele S514 Solaris Bagged Canister Vacuum

Kirby G3 made loud noise when running. Sprayed silicon in fan thinking it might be a bearing. Found a coin and nail in fan and removed. Tha vacuum would not turn on. Replaced switch and brushes. Still nothing. Did the silicon spray do something?

What causes these things to become unbearably loud? We've cleaned evey filter on the machine, pulled every speck of hair and lint off the brushes, changed the belt, no clogs anywhere.
