Having problems with your Oreck XL M900A Upright WetDry Vacuum ?

I have an oreck xl shield scrubber and cannot remove the water tank. help

Answers :

Make certain the yellow retaining latch is DOWN. Sometimes it LOOKS like it is all the way down when it isn't. Chances are, the tanks outlets were not properly greased, causing an o-ring to stick or roll off the seat.

Simply push down on the tank HARD at the top of the handle. You may have to strike it a few times but it will come off. It is best to do so in the upright position, rather than with the wheels extended. Once it is off, check the o-rings, re-seat if needed and apply some white grease to enhance the seal and prevent future sticking.

Steam buggy water reservoir cap has apparently been cross threaded, and cannot be removed by twisting or other "encouragement." If I cut it off, where can I get a replacement? Can the machine be used as is by taking the insert out of the cap and filling the reservoir through the opening? Is there a current manufacturer of this product?

You need to completely annihilate the plastic cap by cutting it off and destroying the remaining plastic to expose the stainless steel insert/plug. You can use either a pipe wrench or 11mm wrench to turn the insert counter-clockwise to unscrew. You w ... Tristar SB Steam Buggy Vacuum

The removable filter at the front is cleaned regularly, and is not clogged. However, the machine appears to be suffering from being clogged by dust, as it has started to make a high pitched noise, and I fear it may burn out. I can see some dust inside the front panel but cannot see how to remove the front to clean it out. (NB. I have located two screws - one on either side - but cannot see how to proceed further.) Please help! Thank you.
