Flip the head over and clean the metal pieces on either side if the head. When they get dirty, the tend to stick to the floor.

Why is my oreck xl 21 hard to push on carpet?


sometimes the little rubber wheels in front wear out of round and bind. Try those first (if they're the tiny ones you must buy a pack of 20 from oreck directly) and Orecks are known for being hard to push when bag begins to fill up.

Vacuum hard to move on carpet


The key to getting an Oreck to move or push is to use as low and angle of the handle as possible. The more upright the handle, the harder the machine is to push (move). The lower the angle or the closer the handle is to the carpet, the easier it is to move (push). Use a straight stiff arm that is pointed down and move your arm at the shoulder with a near locked elbow.

Adjust height for plush carpet


The best solution is to change your method of trying to push the vacuum. The more upright the handle is on an Oreck, the harder it will be to push. The lower the angle (the closer the handle is to the carpet) the easier it will be to push. There will be a huge difference. Use a straight stiff arm that is pointed directly down towards the carpet. Use your shoulder and have a near locked elbow. The vacuum will now push easily.

I have installed a higher pile carpet, how can you adjust the deck of an Oreck?


To the best of my knowledge, you can not. However, there is a solution to the problem of pushing the Oreck on a high pile carpet. The more upright the handle, the harder the Oreck will be to push. The lower the angle or the closer the handle is to the carpet, the easier the Oreck will be to push. Use a straight stiff arm pointed down. More your shoulder with a near locked elbow. You will find your Oreck much, much easier to push.

Oreck XL2 does not start.


There could be a problem with the cord. I suggest taking it to a local vacuum shop to have it inspected as that could be the problem

Simply won't turn on!


I believe all Oreck vacuums have a lifetime warranty. You should pursue that.
