How much does the Oreck XL Vacuum Cleaner weigh?

Only 8 lbs. - a very lightweight vacuum cleaner.
 Top

How many amps does the Oreck XL Vacuum Cleaner have?

4 amps. Keep in mind, however, that amperage is not an accurate measure of power. Amperage is only the amount of electricity needed to run your motor. The Oreck XL vacuum cleaner has a small, efficient motor, while still maintaining high air speed (102 mph) and high brush revolutions (6500 rpms). The amount of air speed and how well your roller brush agitates your carpet determines how well the dirt is picked up off your floor, not how much electricity you use to start up your motor. High amperage usually indicates a heavy motor, thus a heavy vacuum. Many vacuum cleaner companies mislead the customer into believing that amperage is a measure of "power," or how well it will "pick up".
 Top

How much horsepower does it have?

We don't measure Oreck vacuum cleaners by horsepower. Our vacuums' power is determined by air velocity (9000 feet per minute which is equivalent to 102 MPH) and brush revolutions (6500 rpms - revolutions per minute) - one of the highest in the industry.
 Top

What's the difference between the Oreck XL Ultra, the Oreck XL Deluxe, and the Oreck XL Classic?

The Oreck XL Ultra is our hypo-allergenic deluxe two-speed model vacuum cleaner that features a no-squeeze Helping Hand ® Handle and a 24-bar longer lasting motor. In addition, The Oreck XL Ultra comes with a 8-year warranty and 8 FREE annual tune-ups.
The Oreck XL Deluxe is our hypo-allergenic deluxe one-speed model vacuum cleaner that features a no-squeeze Helping Hand ® Handle and a 24-bar longer lasting motor. In addition, The Oreck XL Deluxe comes with a 5-year warranty and 3 FREE annual tune-ups.
The Oreck XL Classic 2200 is our base model. It is not hypo-allergenic, and does not have the Helping Hand ® Handle. It comes with a 3 -year warranty.
See a general overview of these three Oreck XL models, or for more detailed information, look at a side-by-side comparison chart of these three models.
 Top

What does the Helping Hand ® Handle actually do?

It is ergonomically designed to eliminate muscle fatigue, arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome. It allows anyone to push the vacuum cleaner with ease.
 Top

How does the vacuum cleaner filter out dust and irritants?

The Hypo-Allergenic Oreck XL deluxe model has an outer vacuum bag that's made of 30 layers of filtering material - the same material surgical masks are made of. This outer bag traps 99.7% of all dust and irritants that are in the air. Hypo-allergenic inner vacuum cleaner bags are also used inside of the outer bag to cut down on dust and allergy-producing irritants.
 Top

What does "top-fill" mean?

"Top-fill" enables the dirt to enter the vacuum through the handle and dump down into the vacuum cleaner bag - it actually fills from the top, not the bottom. This allows you to maintain suction power while the vacuum cleaner bag is filling.
 Top

What is "Microsweep ® "?

Microsweep ® is a feature on the baseplate of the vacuum cleaner (a tiny "flap") that sweeps along the floor while you're vacuuming. This allows you to go from carpets to floors without any adjusting.
 Top

Why have I heard that the Oreck vacuum cleaner is a "commercial" vacuum?

Oreck vacuum cleaners have been used in a variety of hotels, motels, airports and restaurants because of their durability and light weight. If our vacuum cleaners work so well in thousands of hotel rooms, you can imagine how well they will clean your home.
 Top

How come the Oreck XL vacuum cleaner doesn't have "tools on board"?

Because we want to keep the vacuum as light as possible. That's why we give you the free compact canister vacuum with all of the attachments for above-the-floor cleaning. If the attachments were on the upright, it wouldn't weigh 8 lbs. anymore!
 Top

How does the Oreck 30 Day Risk-Free Trial work?

We send you the Oreck product(s) or your choice. You have 30 days to try them out in your own home, risk-free. If you decide they're not as great as we say, simply return them to us before the end of the 30 day period for a full credit or refund - no questions asked. We'll even pay the return shipping costs!
 Top

How many vacuum cleaner bags do I get with the vacuum? How about vacuum belts? Air tabs?

You receive 2 bags for the upright and 2 bags for the canister, 2 belts and 1 fresh air tablet.
 Top

Don't you make two kinds of inner vacuum bags?

Yes. The hypo-allergenic inner vacuum bags are green and are used with the Oreck XL deluxe model. They have a filtering material inside of them. The regular inner vacuum bags are blue and are used with the Oreck XL base model. These vacuum bags have no filtering material inside of them - they are made of paper only. Both types are hotel size bags.
 Top

 Top

How do I know when to change the disposable bag?

Check the "fill-line" mark on the vacuum bag. Or, if the vacuum cleaner appears to be heavier than normal, it's probably time.
 Top

How do I change the vacuum bag?

For newer models of the Oreck XL Upright Vac, there is a Bag Docking System. With this system, the bag slides into the hinged bag dock door and is pushed into place. For older models of the Oreck XL Upright Vac and commercial models, there is no Bag Docking System. The bag is simply snapped or popped into place. Click here for helpful illustrations and more information to help you change your vacuum bag.
 Top

How often should I change the vacuum belt?

We recommend that you change the vacuum belt about every 6-12 months to prevent strain on your motor. However, it really depends on usage.
 Top

Are the drive belts hard to change?

Not at all. There is a side belt access that makes it easy to change vacuum cleaner belts. Just follow the instructions in the service manual.
 Top

Where are the air refreshing tablets inserted?

Located inside the permanent outer bag you will find a tab (a square piece of plastic). The air refreshing tablet should be inserted in that tab.
 Top

I'm having trouble inserting the tube assembly into the connector assembly. Please help.

Simply lubricate the outside of the tube assembly on each end. (Petroleum jelly works well.)
 Top

I'm having trouble disconnecting the tube assembly from the fan housing assembly. Please help.

Locate the silver button under the rubber collar to the back of the vacuum cleaner. Push the button in gently and twist with back and forth motion lifting the tube assembly upward.
 Top

How do you change the vacuum belts?

Remove side panel and follow instructions in service manual.
 Top




Is the Super Compact Canister Vacuum Cleaner a hypo-allergenic unit?

Yes. This canister vacuum cleaner requires the double wall, hypo-allergenic disposable dust bags.
 Top

Where is the micro filter located?

To find the micro filter, take the disposable dust bag out and look inside to the rear wall.
 Top

Is it necessary to replace the micro filter each time I replace the disposable vacuum cleaner bag?

No. However, it is necessary to change the micro filter if it becomes soiled.
 Top

How do I open the canister vacuum cleaner to replace the disposable dust bag?

To open the canister vacuum cleaner, lift the clamp located on under side of unit. Grasp the cover plate and lift bottom up and out.
 Top

Why are there no wrap brackets for the cord?

The cord can be wrapped around the unit. This will not cause damage to the vacuum cleaner cord.
 Top

On the under side of the machine it looks like two pieces may have broken off. Is the unit supposed to rest on any feet or supports of any kind?

There are no feet or supports on the unit. The area referred to as being "broken" is where the seal is broken when the unit is molded (manufactured).
 Top




How do Oreck Air Purifiers work?

Oreck Air Purifiers use a five-stage purification process to clean the air. The diagram below illustrates the various purification stages.
How do air purifier work?
The five-stage purification process which Oreck uses effectively filters 95% of particles as minute as 0.1 microns. First, a pre-filter captures large particles such as hair, lint etc. Electricity is used to positively charge smaller particles, which are then locked in by the alternately charged plates of the collector cell. An optional odour absorber uses activated charcoal to absorb common household odours, and finally,an Air Revitalizer emits negative ions to freshen stale air. No other purifier uses this powerful combination of technology.
 Top

What are the common types of air purifier technologies?

Electronic Air Purifiers (Oreck Air Purifiers)

A true electronic air cleaner is a two-stage electrostatic precipitator that allows the air stream to pass through an electric field and particles (regardless of size) receive an electric charge. Once charged, the particles pass through a collecting section that remove the particles from the air stream by oppositely charged collection plates. The collection efficiency is determined by the strength of the electrical field and the time that the particles are exposed to charging and collection areas.
Negative Ion Generators (also called Ionizers)

An ionizer uses high voltage at low wattage to emit negative ions through needles or fine wire. It does not trap airborne pollutants, but will cause airborne particles to settle out of the air. When included with another air cleaning technology as a final stage in the cleaning process, the negative ions help to create a fresh, clean scent through the production of low levels of ozone.
HEPA Air Cleaners

HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance. This filter uses very fine fibers in a dense mat to capture particles.

HEPA filters create high resistance to airflow, which gets worse as the filter loads with dirt. This resistance causes HEPA units to use more energy (and cost more to operate). This filter also causes HEPA unit performance to decline as the filter gets dirty. HEPA units require you to frequently change the expensive filters.
Ozone Generators

Ozone is a molecule composed of three atoms of oxygen. An ozone generator disperses large amounts of ozone. Ozone is used effectively in various sterilization processes and to neutralize odours.

Some ozone generators are being marketed as air purifiers. Ozone does not remove airborne particles, though some particle removal is accomplished if the ozone generator is used with a negative ion generator. Though an ozone generator will mask odours, it is not designed to purify air.
Fanless or Silent Air Purifiers

These air purifiers do not use a fan to circulate the air.
Controlled tests using small demonstrator boxes show effectiveness, which may be difficult to replicate in actual rooms. To clean the air in a room, air must be drawnthrough the collection media. If there is no air movement, there can be very minimal air cleaning.
 Top

Does the Oreck Air Purifier require replacement filters?

The Oreck Air Purifier does not require any replaceable filters. It uses a permanent pre-filter to filter larger particles and hairs; the pre-filter can be rinsed off and re-used continually.

In addition to air purification, the Oreck Air Purifier provides the additional benefit of odour removal with its charcoal odour absorber. The charcoal odour absorber is optional, and odour absorption effectiveness will gradually deteriorate over time unless the charcoal odour absorber is replaced.The Oreck Air Purifier will continue to remove harmful airborne particles with its permanent electronic collector cell even if you choose not to use the optional charcoal odour absorber.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT wash the charcoal odour absorber. Replace, if necessary.
 Top

How does the Air Revitalizer work?

The Air Revitalizer is the fifth stage of the Oreck 5-stage air purification process; it releases negative ions to revitalize the air. The Air Revitalizer can be turned on or off on the Professional Air Purifier. Turning theAir Revitalizer on provides a pleasant, clean smell, but does not impact the air purifier's cleaning efficiency.
 Top

Is the Oreck Air Purifier an ozone generator?

No, the Oreck Air Purifier is not an ozone generator because it does not rely on ozone as part of the cleaning process. Ozone is a natural by-product of many electrical appliances.

The Air Purifier's Air Revitalizer also produces very low levels of ozone, and can be turned on or off with a switch located on the front of the unit. Any ozone produced by theAir Revitalizer does not impact the Air Purifier's cleaning efficiency. When theAir Revitalizer is on, the ozone produced by both theAir Revitalizer and the air purifier together is well underUL and FDA guidelines of 50 ppb (parts per billion).
 Top

My Oreck Air Purifier makes sparking or popping noises. Is this normal?

Yes. As a large particle is captured in the collector cell, the Oreck Air Purifier may make a sparking or popping noise. Cleaning the collector cell may help. If your Air Purifier continues to make excessive popping noises, it may be damaged and should be returned.
 Top

What are the best ways to clean the collector cell?

Theelectronic collector cell cleans easily in detergent and water. The collector should be allowed to air dry before re-inserting it. Oreck does not recommend the use of heated or compressed air as part of the drying process.

Oreck offers Assail-a-Cell® cleaner for particularly stubborn dirt and grime (such as tobacco tar); It is the fastest and easiest way to clean the collector cell because the high-action foaming cleanser liquefies dirt, tobacco, tar, and other residue.

Do not try to clean the collector cell by inserting a cloth, brush, or other device between the cell plates. Inserting objects in the collector cell may damage the positive charging wires or collector cell plates.
 Top

How often should I wash the collector cell?

How often you need to wash it depends on the environment. A good suggestion is to wash the cell after the initial four weeks of use and once every eight weeks thereafter, though you may find that a different cleaning schedule is better for you over time.
 Top

How does the red "Wash Cell" light work?

The red "Wash Cell" light is set off by a high amperage sensor. It is not necessary to wait for the red light before cleaning thecollectorcell. Very dirtycollectorcells or arcing will set off the red "Wash Light" cell, but Oreck recommends cleaning the cell on a regular scheduled basis (typically every two months or as desired) before the light goes off.
 Top

Can the Air Purifier be used in the presence of oxygen?

Pure oxygen is a combustible gas, and you should take appropriate precautions when using electrical appliances such as the Oreck Air Purifier in the presence of an oxygen machine or tank. We suggest that you consult with your oxygen and medical equipment providers regarding the use of the Air Purifier in the presence of oxygen or other combustible gases.
 Top

What size room can an Oreck Air Purifier clean?

You'll find best results using the Air Purifier in an appropriately sized room - Oreck suggests not more than a 30' by 30' room, though this size may depend on the environment (pets, foot traffic, frequency of opening and closing doors to the outside).

Of course, no air purifier can clean through walls; an air purifier is designed to be room specific.
 Top

How long should the Air Purifier run before I'll notice a difference?

You will likely see a difference as quickly as the first few days of use, but you should definitely begin to see a difference in the first two weeks.
 Top

When should I use the "Silence Technology®" mode?

The collector cell cleans as effectively on the Silence setting as it does on the high setting, however the fan moves slower. As a result, the Air Purifier cleans as well on low as on high, but will clean the room more slowly as it circulates less air.

To maximize cleaning effectiveness, you may choose to set the purifier on high or medium while out of the house, and set the purifier on Silence when noise is a potential issue.
 Top

Will I still have to dust and clean?

Yes, but you may be pleasantly surprised at how infrequently. Using the Oreck Air Purifier helps to protect home furnishings from damaging pollutants and will keep the house looking cleaner longer.
 Top

How do I register my Oreck Air Purifier?

Oreck products can be registered by filling out a form online. Click here to complete a product registration.
 Top

Does the Oreck Air Purifier come with a warranty?

Yes- New models come with a 3 year warranty, and Certified Factory Reconditioned models come with a 1 year warranty.
 Top

Where can I find Accessories and Supplies for Oreck Air Purifiers?

You can get all the accessories and supplies you need for your Oreck Air Purifer, right here on OreckCanada.com. You can also visit any of our retail stores, or call 1-888-676-7325.
 Top




Where are the new air purifiers manufactured?

The Tower is made in Long Beach, Mississippi and the Table Top is made in China.
 Top

Why is it called the Truman Cell?

The name itself has no meaning. Truman Cell is the brand name of the technology.
 Top

How do burning candles, wood burning stoves and fires in fire places affect the Collector Cell?

Lit candles, wood burning stoves and fires from fireplaces all deposit soot in the home. Soot is very difficult to remove from anything without using harsh cleaning solutions. If the cell is soaked long enough (more than just a few hours) in mild warm soapy water, this should break apart the soot. Remember, the amount of soot varies in consumer's homes.
 Top

Will the Odour Absorber Plus light come on even if nothing (no Odour Absorber Plus) is in the slot on the table top? No.
 Top

Is a special tool required to remove the wires from the Truman cell?

No. Needle nose pliers may help. On AIRP you will need a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the side plates to gain access to the ends of the pre-charge wires.
 Top

Does the table top also have an internal battery that remembers the reset dates when unplugged or power goes out? No
 Top

What is the fan made of on the Table Top? Plastic
 Top

What is the sku for the replacement wires?

Tower: 09-20082-01 (4 pack).
Table Top: 09-5510-0200 (12 pack).
 Top

Is there a way to determine which Table Top units have a night light that only features dim and high?

No, there is no date code. This was a running change at the Chinese manufacturing facility. It is not a quality issue, just a feature change.
 Top

How does the Oxygenator convert O³ to O²+ O?

The O3 molecule is broken down into O2 and O1. The O1 recombines with another O1 to form elemental oxygen or O2. The metal oxide coating on the aluminum mesh matrix reacts catalytically with the O3 molecule to release a free oxygen atom and a diatomic oxygen molecule. Since the metal oxide is a catalyst it is not consumed, it simply facilitates the chemical reaction of O3 to O1 and O2.
 Top

Will nicotine stain or harm the Oxygenator? No
 Top

What is the best way to clean an Oxygenator covered in nicotine?

Vacuum with a round brush. Nicotine is very "sticky" in nature and is difficult to remove from anything. Vacuuming may not remove all of the nicotine tar, however, internal testing shows that Oxygenator still is effective even when dirty. Typically, when the Oxygenator is very dirty, it will emit a somewhat sweet smell, due to increased ozone.
 Top

When will the "Check Collector Cell" light illuminate?

The "Check Collector Cell" light will fire solid after 30 days or will blink if there is an issue with the cell (dirty, bug inside, wet or damaged cell, etc).
 Top

Do the wall mount brackets that fit the Signature Series work with the Table Top?

Yes, they are interchangeable.
 Top

The Tower has a strong smell when it is first plugged in. What is happening?

This has been seen in early production units due to the varnish on the motor. If the unit is left to run for a few days the odour typically dissipates.
 Top

Upon arrival, the boxes for both the Tower & Table Top units are sometimes damaged from shipping. How about a stronger box?

OMC rigorously tests all packaging to the ISTA shipping test protocol, a very abusive test that drops boxes from two feet on all sides and all corners. In addition, we also perform a "shaker" test to simulate semi-truck transportation. All units must work properly and not have any cosmetic damage in order to pass this test. If any air units (or any other Oreck products) arrive damaged, please make a claim with the shipping company as soon as possible.
 Top

How do we address potential issues with Oxygen?

If consumers are not restricted from using regular light switches, vacuum cleaners or other spark-producing appliances then our air purifiers are not a problem. In environments with a high concentration of oxygen (space capsules, oxygen tents etc.), please tell consumers to consult their doctor.
 Top

What is the air movement on the different speeds?

In Cubic Feet per Minute (CFM), Tower Turbo:150 CFM, High: 84 CFM, Medium: 62 CFM, Low: 20: CFM. Table Top High: 140 CFM, Medium: 70 CFM, Low: 42 CFM.
 Top

What size particles do the air purifiers capture?

Tabletop: Up to 96%, down to 0.1 microns. Tower: Up to 99%, down to 0.1 microns.
 Top

Will the infomercial mention that the Odour Absorber Plus is optional?

If so it will reduce the 6-stage filtration by 1 stage? Yes, however, the unit comes standard with the Odour Absorber Plus, therefore, consumers are getting a six stage filtration process when they open the box.
 Top

How many square feet per hour do the Air Purifier clean on the different settings?

Tower: Silence - 210, Medium - 450, High - 630, Turbo - 1125
Please note: these numbers should not be compared to each other because the settings are moving different amounts of air at different filtration efficiencies.
Table Top: Silence - 315, Medium - 525, High - 900
 Top

How does Oreck's air purifier technology compare to competitors' technology?

Please see the attached chart.
 Top

Is there a side by side comparison of the Tower Air Purifier and the new Sharper Image unit with fans?

Marketing is working on this and will send it to the field soon.

 Top

What is the suggested retail price for single Truman Cells?

These will be available in the next few weeks.
Table Top sku: 09-21058-01 Retail: $69.99.
