Parts List
Operating Recommendations
This new ORECK XL High-Speed 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 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 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. REPLACE THE BELT EVERY 6 MONTHS.
7. 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.
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.

General Information
Assembly
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.
fig. 1 Before assembling appliance, remove two screws from connector
assembly. Remove cardboard insert by pulling upward.
fig. 2 With ON/OFF switch facing the front of the unit, slide upper
handle section over matching section of the connector assembly.
Hold tab of cord strain relief flush with TOP hole in connector
assembly. Insert screw through hole in tab of cord strain relief
and firmly tighten to connector assembly. Insert remaining screw
in botom hole of connector assembly and tighten firmly.
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 paper
bag is to trap dirt, but at the same time it must be porous enough to
allow air to pass through. If the paper 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. DO NOT FILL ABOVE THE LINE INDICATED ON THE
DUST BAG.
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 TYPE CC disposable bags
will affect the cleaning ability of your cleaner and could cause
damage to it.
NOTE: The power cord comes installed in the cord strain relief.
Should the power cord come loose, simply pinch the power cord
together and slide approximately 1 - 2 inches through hole in
cord strain relief. Carefully slide power cord over clamp on the
the cord strain relief and pull excess until the power cord is
tightly rested under clamp.
fig. 3 Attach cord to cord clip by pressing cord above and below clip
ensuring the cord is fully rested in clip.
Operating Instructions
The Belt
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 (l) - OFF(O) switch on Helping Hand®
when ready to operate.
fig. 4 Place foot on power head and lean handle back gently to release
lock for vacuum use. Return handle to the full upright position to
engage lock.
NOTE: 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.
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.
An extra belt is stored in the baseplate of your cleaner. When
buying replacement belts, use ONLY ORECK genuine belts. Belts
other than ORECK belts will not operate the revolving brush
correctly and may create undue stress which will cause damage to
the motor and brush bearings. Using belts other than ORECK belts
will void the warranty.
For Easy Power Cord Storage
Lubrication
fig. 5 Wrap power cord around cord dump on Helping Hand® handle
and cord hook on connector.
fig. 6 To release cord, twist cord dump located on Helping Hand®
handle 1/2 turn. Slide cord off handle.
The vacuum cleaner motor bearings are factory lubricated and sealed.
Further lubrication is not required.

General Cleaner Care
To Adjust or Replace Brush
At least once a month, check for and
remove excessive lint, string or hair
from revolving brush.
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.
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 metal strip on the base of the cleaner could be damaged
if used on concrete or abrasive surfaces, and, therefore, cause damage
to wood floors, soft (vinyl, asphalt tile, etc.) floor surfaces and polished
floor finishes. 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.
Celoc® Hypo-Allergenic Filter System
WARNING: Unplug cord from electrical
outlet before servicing.
fig. 17 To determine if the brush is worn, place a firm straight edge
across the nozzle opening. If brush bristles do not extend
beyond baseplate, brush should be adjusted.
fig. 18 Remove the baseplate by removing 5 screws.
fig. 19 Remove the belt and brush roll from the housing.
fig. 20 Rotate both bearing assemblies at ends of brush roll to show
"OLD" and replace in the holding channels in the housing.
NOTE: The bearing assembly setting marked "OLD" has a smooth
side. The one marked "NEW" has notches. When rotating bearings,
make sure both bearing assembly settings are the same and face up
when replacing the brush roll.
fig. 17 Reassemble the belt and the baseplate and check bristle height
above baseplate at each end of brush.
If a previous adjustment has already been made and bristle height does
not extend above baseplate, a new brush assembly should be ordered.
IMPORTANT: Unless the brush is worn as indicated above, both
bearings must be in the “NEW” position. When rotating, both
bearings must be in the “OLD” position. Unmatched settings will
cause damage to your machine.
The Celoc SMMS outer bag of your vacuum cleaner is high filtration
medical material designed to filter the smallest of dust particles. It is
important that the inside of the outer bag be cleaned. Vacuum the inside
of the outer bag or hand wash, turned inside out, with warm water, and
air dry. For best results, the Celoc SMMS outer bag should be replaced
once a year. The Celoc layered disposable inner dust bag must be
replaced once a month even if it is not full. Change it more often if it is
used in extremely dirty areas. Increase the cleaning power of your
vacuum by changing the bag often.
Using An Oreck Fresh Air® Tab
fig. 21 Your ORECK XL vacuum cleaner has a special ORECK
FRESH AIR® tab pocket. This pocket is located inside the outer
bag in the area where the disposable paper filter bag attaches
to the intake tube. Insert tablet in pocket if desired.
Stuffing or Blockage
IMPORTANT: On plush and new carpets, stuffing may occur inside the
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:
To Replace Filter Dust Bag
WARNING: Unplug cord from electrical
outlet before servicing.
BAG REMOVAL:
fig. 7
Unzip outer bag completely.
fig. 8
Pull bag cardboard collar to release bag dock door from
connector. Bag dock door will hinge downward.
fig. 9
Gently pull bag cardboard collar upward out of the bag dock.
Dust seal will close automatically.
WARNING: Unplug cord from electrical
outlet before servicing.
BAG INSTALLATION:
fig. 10 Slide the cardboard collar completely onto bag dock door.
fig. 11 Firmly push bag dock door with both thumbs on indication point
until snap is heard.
How to Replace a Worn Belt
WARNING: Unplug cord from electrical
outlet before servicing.
fig. 12 Remove the replacement belt from the storage channel.
fig. 13 Remove the door by removing the hold down screw located on
side of power head.
fig. 14 Slide the door forward by prying open with a screwdriver or
coin.
fig. 15 Remove the belt from the motor drive shaft and brush roll
pulley.
fig. 16 Loop the new belt over the motor drive shaft. Place the
opposite end of the belt on the brush pulley. Rotate the brush
roll three (3) complete revolutions to ensure that no part of the
belt is overhanging the end of the motor drive shaft.
fig. 14 Replace the door by sliding it into the groove at the bottom of
the housing.
fig. 13 Replace the hold down screw and tighten.
6
fig. 22 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 (fig. 23).
fig. 24 If the blockage is not at the base, remove lower tube. Unhook
retainer spring, releasing bottom of bag.
fig. 25 Twist lower collar counterclockwise to slide up. Pull tube out of
base.
fig. 26 Check for blockage. If blockage is in the tube, remove with a
coat hanger.
fig. 27 If tube is not blocked, look into fan housing. Remove debris
with long-nose pliers, a screwdriver or coat hanger.
fig. 25 To reassemble, check O-ring on tube, and replace if damaged.
Vacuum will not operate properly without the tube O-ring. Slide
O-ring to approximately 2" from base of tube. Replace tube by
first lining up slot at base of tube with inner tab inside fan
housing. Then reinsert 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.
fig. 28 Make sure collar is not cross threaded on housing. Reattach
bag spring (fig. 24).
fig. 29 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.
03-9540-0700
Warning
This Oreck is very powerful and may pick up items which your old
cleaner did not. Please be careful to clean the floor of larger items
which your old cleaner passed over such as pencils and small toys.
These items can cause a blockage in your machine.
