The performance of your new vacuum 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.
HEPA Odor Fighting Inner Bag
Your Oreck includes an HEPA Odor Fighting Inner 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 installed properly. Note: All
disposable inner bags are not the same. Oreck offers HEPA and nonHEPA 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.

Simple Operating Tips:
You’ll love the way your Oreck cleans under things, and is SO lightweight and easy to use.
The following are a few simple suggestions regarding its operation:
• When inserting a new disposable inner bag, first puff out and OPEN the bag.
• When the disposable inner bag is full, replace it.
• Check the disposable inner bag at least once a month.
continued
• Do not run the vacuum over the cord. The revolving brushroll could damage the cord.
• Use caution when vacuuming over area rug edges and fringe.
• If at any time the machine does not pick up properly or makes an unusual noise, stop
operation and service.
• 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.
The Belt
The Oreck Magnesium™ is equipped with the Endurolife™ Belt, which is designed for long life
and doesn’t need changing.
Motor Protection/Vacuum Shutdown
If the vacuum becomes overloaded, which could occur by sucking up a large obstruction or on
extremely thick carpet, the electronics are designed to shut down the vacuum. If this happens,
the vacuum will be turned off and the headlights will flash. To reset the vacuum turn the unit
off, wait 5 seconds, and then turn it back on. If it shuts down again there may be a large
obstruction in the vacuum. See page 9 for the steps on clearing a blockage.
WARNING: Unplug cord from electrical outlet
before servicing.
1. Clear any large obstruction or blockage from the vacuum.
(See Page 9, “Stuffing or Blockage”)
2. Once the blockage is cleared, plug the vacuum back in and it will reset.
NOTE: If the vacuum continues to shut down, contact an Oreck Authorized
Service Center.
Lubrication
The vacuum motor bearings are factory lubricated and sealed. Further lubrication is not
required.
Brushroll Maintenance
At least once a month, check for and remove excessive lint,
string or hair from the revolving brushroll. Patented cleaning
grooves on the brushroll will allow easier cleaning. Wipe
the outside of the vacuum with a damp cloth. Also clean the
connector deflector assembly area, base of vacuum 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 Upright
vacuum looking new and will ensure continued cleaning
effectiveness.
Replacing the Brushroll
The brushroll is designed for long life. Should it ever become worn or frayed, it can be replaced
by an Oreck Authorized Service Center.

Stuffing or Blockage
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 vacuum, many older carpets will cause stuffing when the vacuum is
first used on them. If your vacuum does not pick up properly, or makes unusual noise and the
outer bag does not fluff up or balloon open, follow these steps:
continued
WARNING: Unplug cord from electrical outlet before servicing.
1
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.
2
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.
3
If tube is not blocked, look into fan housing. Remove debris with long-nose pliers, a
screwdriver or coat hanger.

4
Insert tube and push down until the tube is seated. Make sure O-ring is in place against
fan housing opening.
5
To finish reassembly, replace and tighten collar clockwise until collar locking tabs are
locked in place.
Note: Many times blockage occurs due to a full disposable inner 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 disposable inner bag connects to the connector
assembly. If the above actions do not correct the problem, contact an Oreck authorized
service center or call the customer service center.
