20 Most Recent Oreck ElectrikBroom AV-701B Handheld Vacuum Questions & Answers

The same happened to me. The battery will no longer take a charge. Oreck store was of no help. Do NOT buy the new model it is poorly designed. you can find other brands in the same category at half the price and much better brands for about the same price.

You might be surprised. Ebay doesn't have any listed. Oreck is a very private company and they don't sell unlimited stock to anyone, even their distributors. If you find one on Ebay, it will be an aftermarket unit that MIGHT fit.

These may be discontinued, otherwise, I'd think an Oreck Store would be only option.

if you have a cheep avo meter check that the charger is charging. it should be charging about 6 volts or so DC volts? just set the meter to DC volts at 20 volts and hold the two probs on the points meter should move up, if not revers probs and try again, if not charging, get new one, but its more likly to be the battry pack in the hover gone bust on you, there a pack of ni-cads and will only last a year or so on charge,
the only other thing i can think of is the motor has given up the gost on you, as its only a toy motor in this hover! (try a friends charger first) dont go spending hard earnd cash on a dead horse, get a new one!

The battery from Lowes was the perfect solution for my Oreck AV-701B vacuum. In this vacuum, however, the wires are soldered to the battery leading to a plug which powers the vacuum. You will have to desolder the old battery and solder the new one. This is easy soldering and any friend with a soldering iron could do it for you in two minutes. The improved (restored) power is amazing.

How to clean the dirt cup
Posted by Deneece on May 05, 2008
How do you clean the "bagless dirt cup" for my Oreck Cordfree Electrik Broom? I do not have an instruction manual since it was given to me.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The best way to clean a dirt cup is to wash it with soap and water and dry it thoroughly so that there is not water or moisture, do NOT however get the filter wet because it will lose filtration and the best way to clean the filter is to brush off the dirt, wipe off the dirt on the filter, or replace the filter id dust and dirt are getting through, other wise wash the cup only with soap and water. Also contact your local vac dealer or Oreck Store in your area or the Oreck factory @ the number listed below t get a new owner’s manual. So feel free to contact your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
