Household Use Only
A polarized plug has one rounded prong and one straight prong.
The rounded end goes into the longest socket slot.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this equipment has a polarized plug
(one blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet
only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug.
If it still does not fit, contact qualified personnel to install the proper outlet.
Do not alter the plug in any way.

Simple Operation Tips and Vacuum Care
This new ORECK Upright is one of the finest, fastest, and strongest units in its class. You’ll love the way it cleans,
gets under things, and it’s SO lightweight and easy to use.
The following are a few simple suggestions regarding its operation:
1. When inserting a new HEPA Filtration Odor Fighting Inner Bag -FIRST PUFF OUT and OPEN THE BAG.
2. When the HEPA Filtration Odor Fighting Inner Bag is full, REPLACE IT.
3. If at any time the machine does not pick up properly or makes an unusual noise, STOP OPERATION and service.
4. Although your upright will pick up pins, paper clips, and other small objects, it is recommended that these be
removed from the floor before you vacuum. Failure to do so may result in permanent damage to the motor
suction fan and its housing.
5. WARNING: Do not use your vacuum cleaner on damp or wet surfaces. This will cause damage to the vacuum
cleaner and is dangerous to the user. Damage caused by use on wet or damp surfaces is not covered under warranty.
6. For optimal performance, replace the belt every 6 months.
7. Check the disposable filter dust bag at least once a month.
8. DO NOT run the vacuum cleaner over the cord. The revolving brush could damage the cord.
9. Use caution when vacuuming over area rug edges and fringe.
The performance of your new cleaner greatly depends upon care and maintenance. The instructions in this manual
will guide you in performing basic care and maintenance. To obtain the most satisfying years of service read the
instructions and keep them handy for future reference.
LLUP
HEPA Filtration Odor Fighting Bags
Your Oreck includes a HEPA Filtration Odor Fighting Bag. The disposable inner bag plays a very
important role in the efficiency of your ORECK vacuum. The purpose of the disposable inner bag
is to trap dirt, but at the same time it must be porous enough to allow air to pass through. If the disposable inner bag becomes clogged, no air can pass through the vacuum and cleaning cannot take
place, regardless of the vacuum’s power.
To keep your Upright vacuum operating at maximum efficiency, change the disposable inner bag
frequently.
DO NOT FILL ABOVE THE LINE INDICATED ON THE DISPOSABLE INNER BAG.
Be sure the disposable inner bag is instal properly. Note: All disposable inner bags are not the
same. Oreck offers HEPA and non-HEPA inner bags. Your Oreck HEPA or non-HEPA inner
bags have been designed to be used with the ORECK Upright vacuum. Using bags other than genuine Oreck HEPA or non-HEPA disposable inner bags will affect the cleaning ability of your vacuum and could cause damage to it.
The Belt
The belt on your vacuum cleaner controls the speed of the revolving brush and is very important for the effective
operation of the cleaner. If the belt becomes stretched or cut, it will cause the revolving brush to stop completely or
slow down. See instructions in the manual for replacing belt.

Lubrication
The vacuum cleaner motor bearings are factory lubricated and sealed. Further lubrication is not required.
CAUTION
Wood Floors, Soft (Vinyl, Asphalt Tile, etc.) Floor Surfaces and Polished Floor Finishes
Use floor and floor finish manufacturer’s recommended methods of cleaning. The
roller brush may also scuff very soft finishes. Do not operate the unit while in the
upright and locked position. Do not let the unit run while in any one stationary position for any period of time. Keep the unit moving while in operation.
Note: At least once a month, check for and remove excessive lint, string or hair from
revolving brush. Patented cleaning grooves on brush roll will allow easier cleaning.
Wipe the outside of the cleaner with a damp cloth. Also clean the connector deflector
assembly area, base of cleaner and fan housing area. If there is dust in the outer bag,
vacuum it or shake it out.
A little preventative maintenance will keep your cleaner looking new and will ensure
continued cleaning effectiveness.

IMPORTANT: On plush and new carpets, stuffing may occur inside the intake tube and the lower tube
assembly. This is due to excessive fuzz and loose cuttings in the carpet. Stuffing could occur for the first few
cleanings until all the loose material is removed. Due to the high efficiency of the cleaner, many older carpets
will cause stuffing when the cleaner is first used on them. If your vacuum cleaner does not pick up properly,
or makes unusual noise and the outer bag does not fluff up or balloon open, follow these steps:
WARNING: Unplug cord from electrical outlet before servicing.
Check for blockage at the mouth of the intake opening. If there is blockage, remove it with long-nose pliers,
a screwdriver or coat hanger. If you can not reach the blockage, remove baseplate. Remove the baseplate by
removing 5 screws (see “Adjusting or Replacing Brushroll”).
If the blockage is not at the base, remove lower tube. Unhook bag spring, releasing bottom of bag.
Twist lower collar counterclockwise to slide up. Pull tube out of base.
Check for blockage. If blockage is in the tube, remove with a coat hanger.
If tube is not blocked, look into fan housing. Remove debris with long-nose pliers, a screwdriver or coat hanger.
To reassemble, check O-ring on tube, and replace if damaged. Replace tube by first lining up slot at base of
tube with tab inside fan housing. Insert tube and push down until the tube is seated. Make sure O-ring is in
place against fan housing opening. Replace and tighten collar until collar locking tabs are locked in place.
Reattach bag spring.
Many times blockage occurs due to a full dust bag causing dirt to back down the air flow system. When that
happens, the blockage will be at the top of the system, starting in the area where the dust bag connects to the
connector assembly.
Note: If the above actions do not correct the problem, contact an Oreck authorized service center or call the
customer service center. US: 1-800-989-3535 Canada: 1-888-676-7325
