Having problems with your Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Oreck xl commercial spits out dust on bare floor but work on carpet. It is about 15 years old. Bag has been changed. Brushes are spinning so belt is working. Started about 2 weeks ago. HELP!

Answers :

It might be that the beater brush is spinning when you tip it up to look at it but slight pressure of it contacting the floor is enough to stop it.\015\012If it were my machine I would remove the beater brush and clean it as best I could, paying particular attention to the end pieces on the brush that hold it in place. A little WD40 between the end pieces and some twisting to be sure it worked in well.\015\012I would then reassemble with a new belt being sure it is on correctly so it turns the brush in the proper direction.\015\012
\015\012That is about the least expensive thing(s) you can do at this point before going further.\015\012I have one more potential cause, but it is best to check these first.\015\012
\015\012Please let me know how you make out.

Hi,My agitator brush won't run on my hoover S3590, I changed the belt, that didn't work. I don't see a possible cause in my book except replacing the belt. I think there could be a short, the brush will come on sometimes when pulling back and slightly lifting. Any ideas would be great and can I fix it myself? Thank you for any help, Bobbie

Hi Bobbie\015\012Take apart the electro floor head if you can and inspect inside - it may well be that there's clogged dust preventing the brush from turning and also check both sides of the actual beater bar as thread and tangled hair can often lead ... Hoover S3590 Bagged Canister Vacuum

My Kenmore canister model (116) 26212601 works in hard-surface mode (basic suction), but the brush won't spin for carpets, and when I try to turn it on, it makes a whiny sound and then turns off as it does when I need to press the overload button. I looked inside a bit, and the belt isn't broken--it seems fine. So not sure what the problem is. Thanks for any help.

Hello can you help me please? I have a Kirby G4 vacuum cleaner, It did work ok until it started to give off burning smell and lots of sparks from the brushes. I have changed these brushes, the motor still rotates but it still gives off sparks and burning smell. Do i have to change the motor as well? Can you help please? Thankyou Martin

Some debris, even sand or dirt, probably got into the motor, causing damage to the armature. If this is the case, you will need to replace the motor. The burning smell from the motor is generally a sure sign of a bad motor. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

We are trying to replace the belt on the bissell 89q9 model. We purchased belt 8 and got in onto the brush however the brush doesn't spin anymore. Even trying to turn it by hand doesn't work. One end of the brush has a round end to slide in (clear end piece); however the other has a rectangular end to slide in (black end) so we don't even know how it ever turned. Any suggestions?

Windtunnel belt I have a new Hoover Windtunnel canister. The belt keeps coming off.

The hose works great, but the head of the vaccuum does not pick up anything !!! I checked every opening that may have been clogged, but nothing came up. When I hold my hand under the brush/roller, it seems to be putting out more air than intaking air. Particles "dance" on the carpet, but don't get "sucked up" into the vaccuum ? I have had the vaccuum only 1 year, so the brushes should not be a problem. I changed the bag, and checked the belt. The belt and brushes seem to be OK. ?

My Vacuum DC-17 has just quit sucking. It has been making quite a racket since I had the belt changed at a repair shop several months ago. I was told that the belt was a new design and figured that was why it was making so much noise. it seemed to work fine, was picking up dirt and all, but today, when I started vacumming, I noticed it was not sucking air either with the belt engaged or not. My vacuum is approx. 5 years old.
