Does it have a "brushes" lowering/higher switch?
Normally due to brushes being too low in particular on deep pile carpets??
check the actual fixings for the rotating brushes are ok and the brush not simply need "clicking" back into place?

I had a similar problem with a smelly filter, even after multiple washings and finally discovered an actual solution, which I can’t believe Dyson won’t tell you. Those filters that slide out of the top can be disassembled by removing the outer fabric from the plastic frame. When I did that, I found a massive clump of debris inside that would never have come out just by rinsing it under a faucet. Perhaps they don’t want you to know this, but it’s a two minute fix and actually addresses the source of the odor, rather than just covering it up.

Hello, Deb -

Look for a label (possibly a silver-colored label with black print) along the side (left or right side) of the main body of the vacuum / collection container.

Best wishes.

yeap..... i just found a fix for this ,, its mad how easy it is to fix as well...and it works 100%,,,
now dyson implemented a filter magnetic switch if u take your filter off you will see a small magnet in the corner,, u will notice where the magnet is behind it is rased platic,, now,,that the problem on the main board the transistor that picks up magentic signal from the filter is dud,!
dont ask me why it happens,, its a pain i know.,.
now take off collection pot for dust now take battery off.

now where the serial number is theres 2 hex screws that need taking out..

now u will see a small pcb board.. remove with one tiny security screw holding it in,, once removed pull both red plug off thats the digital motor plug.. and white plug which is battery,, once u have done this pull the board down and back gently. as there is a long bit of board that goes up the back of the dyson plastic be very carefull pull this out.. now the long and thin pcb board that is hidden is what we need there is a tiny transistor,,, we need to remove this carefully..once removed,, we solder a thin wire from 2 point A+C need to be soldered together with a thin piece of wire, it will not harm the motor.. as long as u keep it clean,,

these points corolate to the transistor,,



SOLDER AND A+C WITH A FINE PIECE OF WIRE NOW,, AND WALLAH... fixed put it all back together again,,, charge the battery,, and your away,,, working again,, if not u have other faults.. but 99% fix this with flashing red led,,,!!

Contact the manufacturer/distributor to inquire.

The best solution to any Oreck vacuum problem is to replace it with another brand. You are going to continue having problems with the Oreck..Not that other brands don't have problems. But, at least with
other brands the problems don't occur as often. Belt burning up. clogs, roller brush bristle wearing down prematurely, cord breaking internally, etc.
P.S. Oreck is good at one thing. Marketing!
