Question about Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum
Changed the bag, belt is new. Now won't pick up anything and smells like something is burning. I have three dogs and the Oreck is not for pet-owners I have discovered. (cut all the hair from the roller btw)
SOURCE: burning smell
I had burning smell and some visible smoke which I tracked down to the handle area. The mains socket at the bottom of the handle had burned out. When I pulled the plug out I noticed that the prongs were blackened and scorched. I will replace the socket.

If it smells like burning rubber with white smoke its the belt make sure the brush spins freely. If its a electrical burning it will smell real bad you WILL be able to tell which then its a motor issue you can remove the bottom plate 5 phillips head screws opposite the motor youll see 1 screw remove it pry the duct out and look to see if there's anything stuck in the fan if not its the motor its self

try replacing the belt if you havent. it almost sounds like your getting weak aggitation. if thats not bad, check for a clog in the brushroll housing nozzle right on the inside by the tube. Replace the inside hepa filter if you havent within the last 3 months.
