The lady whom I compounded the wool rug for complained that her Oreck is so hard to push..

Having just used my Oreck I figured something was wrong.....





other than the missing bristles, the rest of the XL was in great shape for a 9 year old unit.


My guess is rodents ate them off.


She had no clue, nor did she know that the bag was so full it blew off the gasket....

Brushes always wears out after so long a use.. my guess its the original brush that she been using for 9 years... Lol incorrect brush installation can wear it out faster too.

Not surprised that the bag was full--most are, and that's a big clue that this vacuum cleaner is just not being cared for or maintained when it needs it. 9 years is a long time to not switch out roller brush and this one probably could have used that years ago.

The vacuum cleaner tried to join the kitchen appliance fraternity and part of the hazing ritual was that the senior appliance shaved off his bristles

Seriously... wtf cares?


There are still some bristles near the metal crossbars , maybe the dummy left the thing running for hours unattended on a hard surface while the watched daytime soaps

My guess: She stored her vacuum outside or in the garage. During the hot summer months in the nuclear testing grounds you call your home, the bristles became hard and lost all their flexibility. When she went to vacuum they snapped off like the teeth of a meth-head.

Nobody expects their carpet cleaner to take apart their vacuum, show them where and what parts to order online and blow out the fabric bag with a leaf blower, ya idiot.
