Having problems with your Oreck XL21 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Oreck Commercial XL 21
\015 Is difficult to push. Vacuum is only 2 months old. Belt looks like it is in good condition, however the brushes look like they are wearing down already.\015
If the brushes are worn down I would get a new roller. The double row helix brushes on these do help to pull it forward.
Check that the beater bar is completely clear of thread, this will bring the brush roll back to normal. Also check the sides of the brush roll doesn't have anything such as thread or thick string at the sides.
