V29495 - Oreck XL American Heritage Upright Vacuum
Bag comes loose!!!
Very dissapointed wanted to love it since its made in USA. I'm trying to support that but the mechanism that the bag attaches to broke very soon, the bag comes off & dust every where not very good quality for the price. I don't think I will be buying any thing else from this brand ever!!!!.... :(
Bought this vac a year ago..used it twice maybe three times
It is not working will not pick up anything
Thank god I do have an old vac I can use
Need to get to the Oreck repair and have it looked at but very disappointed
that I have to make that trip
Service not convenient
I bought the Oreck XL Classic some years ago. Liked that it is light weight and did a good job. I even took it with me when I volunteered to clean our church. Everyone was so impressed with it that our pastor invested in three comercial Orecks for us. NOw when it came time to get the tune ups we discovered that the nearest service center is an hour away and the service man was reluctant to do the tune up in one day. So two hours to deliver, two hours to retrieve and lots of gas for the trips. Not to mention no vacuum for two weeks. Will I replace these machines with new Orecks? No way.
I grew up with my mom and grandma having Oreck and new they were good vacuums, so finally after waiting for years to get one I picked this one up and its great. I have had it for a year and half and so far no issues at all. Easy to change the bags and I like that the bag is big and holds alot and it also seals when you take it out so nothing comes out of the bag. I have the red and its very pretty. I also like that its light weight because I have stairs and vacuum those and carry it up and down the stairs. Bonus is the long cord. I can do 90% of my house without having to unplug it, so that is huge!
I purchased my Oreck about 6 months ago, I love it. It is so lightweight and really has good suction. I was reading the reviews and I haven't had any trouble with the bag falling off. I wish I could purchase attachments...I'm planning on getting a Dyson with the attachments. I really love the weight of the Oreck, I can get through the entire house in a short time and feel like the carpet was cleaned!
bag does not stay attached
I have had this vacuum for over a year. I bought it when it was a TSV. I have to check it EVERY single time I use it to make sure the vacuum bag is attached on the inside, and 90% of the time it is not. It seems to be a design flaw. When it is attached, it does a pretty good job picking up dirt. A vacuum that costs that much shouldn't be such a hassle to use.
bags falls off, dust everywear
The bag falls off handle when vacumming which allows all the dirt that was vaccumed up to fly out and into your face. My vacuum always glided to one side while vacuumin, it never went in a straight line which is also hard on the wrist from trying to keep it going straight.
Another Great Buy
This vacuum made it so fun to clean my carpet in the apartment. It is vesy easy to move, still powerful enough to do a great job! For people with allergies I would highly recommend this vacuum. Immediately after vacuuming with my older vacuum i would react, but with this vacuum it did not bother me one bit. I could tell a big difference as soon as I turned it on and started cleaning the rooms. I was so excited I vacuumed the whole apartment!!! Great product, good job Oreck!
GREAT VACUMM FOR PRICE
LOVE THE WAY IT PICKS UP, BUT WORRIED AT HOW MUCH THE REPLACEMENT BAGS WILL BE AND WHERE I WILL BE ABLE TO BUY THEM AND WITH WHAT EASE
does not pick up all the dog hair from the rug. An old, cheap vacuum run after the Oreck picked up a lot of hair left behind. Also no wand/attachments is a problem because the height of the vacuum part doesn't go under my cabinets or under furniture.
It is light weight and I did like how high the handle is- I am 5'9" tall but for the money I prefer something that has attachments to use under furniture etc. I can't see buying a smaller, hand vac to have on hand to use where this one won't go. I had to send it back.
MADE IN THE USA!!!
We recently purchased this Oreck in red....I think it was the TSV. We were so surprised how lightweight it was on arrival. So far, is appears to be one of the better vacuums we've ever owned. It really does the job and is so easy to use. If you're on the fence, don't hesitate....you will be pleasantly surprised!!! This may become your favorite vacuum! : )
Ok, so I have this vacuum for just over a year, the first time I turned it on WOW! the power was awesome. But the the bag keeps falling off. I am a single mom and money if hard to come by. I bought this vacuum thinking I was making a good investment and that I wouldn't need a new vacuum for many years. Sadly enough I just have not been happy with it. I am going this weekend to get something else, because I can keep fixing the bag everytime I turn on my vacuum..I am not accomplishing anything!! So to some maybe its been great, but to me its money I wish I hadn't spent!!
