Having problems with your Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Black marks on carpet

\015 While I was walking on the carpet, I noticed a couple of black marks. I figured it was on someone shoes. I was vacuum a couple of days later and stated noticing small black marks on the right side of the brush marks left in the carpet by the brushes. I tried to clean them and they don't come out. They are sort of like a scorched pinched place or something. I had the handyman take it apart and he found nothing stuck in it, belt was replacd not to long ago, and he said everything looked fine. The black marks are not on the belt side. Maybe a wheel is sticking? It all seems to roll, and turn ok.\015

\015\012Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum. After reading your question, there are only a few things that could be causing the problem. It is very possible that the brushroll could be dirty, or install wrong, on the ends of the brushroll the gray bearing holders will state NEW and OLD and both of the bearing holders needs to be identical – meaning the 2 should say NEW / NEW or OLD / OLD, not new / old of which could be causing the problem. The average belt change should be done every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning, and the extra belts are stored in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. If the wheels are spinning properly then it is not the wheels unless they are dirty and the can be cleaned just by popping them out of the bottom plate holder with a screwdriver and then clean them under the sink. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
