Grounding Instructions (Compacto 9 model) This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a safe path of least resistance for electrical current, reducing the risk of electric shock. The cord for this appliance has an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. It must only be plugged into an electrical outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. Do not modify plug provided with appliance. DANGER: Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electrical Grounding Pin shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is grounded. If not, have a proper outlet installed Grounded Outlet by a qualified electrician. This appliance is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit. It has a grounding plug similar to the example shown. Make sure the appliance is connected to an outlet with the same configuration as the plug. No adapter should be used with this appliance. Servicing of Double-Insulated Appliances SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS (Compacto 6 model) A double-insulated appliance is marked with one or more of the following: The words “DOUBLE INSULATION” or “DOUBLE INSULATED” or the double-insulation symbol ( ). In a doubleinsulated appliance, two systems of insulation are provided instead of grounding. No grounding means is provided on a double-insulated appliance, nor should a means for grounding be added to the appliance. Servicing a double-insulated appliance requires extreme care and knowledge of the system and should be done only by qualified service personnel. Replacement parts for a double-insulated appliance must be identical to the parts they replace.

Ensure the power cord is resting in the cord strain relief. Extension Wand: Insert the nozzle firmly into the large end of the extension wand. To extend the wand, push the button on the wand forward and pull the extension out to the desired length (fig 5). 1 Should the power cord come loose from the cord strain relief reattach it to preserve the life of the power cord. To reattach the cord strain relief, grasp the power cord 4 - 5 inches from the unit. Pinch power cord together and slide approximately 1 - 2 inches through hole in cord strain relief. Carefully slide power cord over clamp on the cord strain relief and pull excess until the power cord is seated under clamp (fig 1). Cord Strain Relief 5 Accessory Tools: The accessory tools can be used either with or without the extension wand. To attach an accessory tool with the extension wand, firmly slide the small end of the extension wand directly into the desired accessory tool. To attach an accessory tool without the extension wand, firmly slide the nozzle directly into the desired accessory tool. Clamp 2 For Easy Power Cord Storage In order to extend the life of the power cord and prevent fracture, grasp the cord close to the unit and roll the cord from the machine outwards. When finished, hang the power cord on the cord hooks (fig 6). 2. Insert the hose into the intake and turn clockwise to lock hose in place (fig 2). 6 Operating Instructions Make sure disposable paper filter dust bag is in place. DO NOT operate the cleaner without a paper filter dust bag. Plug the power cord into an electrical outlet and press the “On” switch located on top of the unit. High-Low Switch This machine is equipped with a normal mode/quiet use switch. You can use it to control the speed of the suction motor. SWITCH SPEED ACTION Quiet Mode Quiet Mode Noise Reduction Suction Reduction Normal Use Normal Increase Noise Increase Suction Operating Recommendations 1. When inserting a new disposable paper filter dust bag–FIRST PUFF OUT and OPEN THE BAG. 2. When the disposable filter dust bag is full, REPLACE IT. 3. If at any time the unit does not pick up properly or makes an unusual noise, STOP OPERATION and service. 4. Although your vacuum 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 unit. 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. Change the disposable filter dust bag at least once a month–even if it is not full! The collected dust in the dust bag can cause odor, attract moisture, and can affect the efficiency of the cleaner. 7. DO NOT run the vacuum cleaner over the cord. 8. Use caution when vacuuming over area rug edges & fringe. Removing & Replacing the Disposable Dust Filter Bag 1. Release latch on the side of the unit and remove the top cover (fig 3). 3 2.

Replace hose and top cover and fasten latch. 4 General Information Replacing and Cleaning the Motor Filter The performance of your new vacuum 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. WARNING: Unplug cord from electrical outlet before servicing. Compacto 6 model: Slide permanent motor filter off housing and vacuum the filter as needed to prevent blockages and clogs (fig 8). Replace the filter by aligning the four notches in the motor filter with the four notches in the motor housing and pushing the motor filter down until it is completely resting on the motor housing. Note: DO NOT wet or soak motor filter to clean; damage to the unit may occur. Disposable Paper Filter Dust Bags Disposable paper filter dust bags play a very important role in the efficiency of your ORECK vacuum cleaner. The purpose of the filter bag is to trap dirt, but at the same time it must be porous enough to allow air to pass through. If the filter bag becomes clogged, no air can pass through the cleaner and cleaning cannot take place, regardless of the cleaner’s power. To keep your cleaner operating at maximum efficiency, change the dust bag frequently. Be sure the disposable paper filter dust bag is installed properly. All paper dust bags are not the same. Your ORECK disposable dust bags have been designed to be used with the ORECK cleaner. Using bags other than genuine ORECK disposable bags will affect the cleaning ability of your cleaner and could cause damage to it. 8 9 Compacto 9 model: Slide disposable motor filter off housing and replace with a NEW filter (fig 9). IMPORTANT: Do not use the unit if motor filter is not installed; damage to the unit may occur. General Cleaner Care At least once a month, check the disposable exhaust filter and motor filter for clogs. If the filters become clogged, no air can pass through the cleaner and cleaning cannot take place, regardless of the cleaner’s power. See “Replacing the Exhaust Filter” and “Replace and Cleaning the Motor Filter”. Also wipe the outside of the cleaner with a damp cloth. A little preventative maintenance will keep your cleaner looking new and will ensure continued cleaning effectiveness. Overheating The temperature of the suction motor is measured constantly. If the temperature becomes too high, the sensor will switch off the suction motor. Check whether the suction system is blocked. The sensor will be automatically switched on again after the sensor and the motor have cooled down sufficiently. You can now start to use the machine again. Troubleshooting Guide WARNING: Unplug cord from electrical outlet before servicing. Replacing the Exhaust Filter Problem Vacuum motor is off WARNING: Unplug cord from electrical outlet before servicing. 1. Remove and dispose exhaust filter cartridge from vacuum cleaner (fig 7). Note: Compacto 9 models have a locking mechanism that must be unlocked before the exhaust filter cartridge can be removed. 2. Slide new exhaust filter cartridge in vacuum cleaner. 7 Possible Source Not plugged in properly. No electricity in wall outlet. Switch in “off” position. Sensor temperature too high. Low suction Dust bag full. Hose not installed properly Areas To Check Be sure plug is firmly plugged into wall outlet. Check electrical source (fuse or circuit breaker). Position switch to “on” position. Check for air obstruction. Let the motor cool down. Replace dust bag. See “Removing and Replacing Dust Bag”. Re-install hose.
