I had bought a used Oreck and to my dismay has stopped working. My dad being a mechanic in every form took the vacuum apart and wants to know how the fan attaches to the motor. He says the fan is stripped to the motor....Not sure but he was hoping I could obtain a wiring manual. I noticed you recently sent a copy of one to another person. I was hoping you wouldn't mind helping me. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!

I have a Oreck XL and the propeller that is in the housing will become hard for the moter to turn. I have took it apart and do not see a problem, but when I reinstall the parts it will run for about 15 sec. and the moter will stop turning. When the propeller housing is off the motor turns ok and doesn't stop. Do I need a new propeller/housing?

Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Oreck XL Classic.It sounds like the belt may be stretched out and my needs replacing. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months and to store the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. Also check the brushroll, the gray bearing ends with say on either side the words NEW or OLD and both ends need to be identical – new/new and old/old NOT new/old, if the belt and the brushroll are OK then it may be the motor but I don’t think so.

I had the same problem after not paying attention to the connections when replacing my motor. I spent days searching for information and only found several non-answers with small photos that no one can read.I contacted Oreck for wiring information. They explicitly stated that they can't provide any wiring information for safety and liability reasons.
I found the Ametek schematic which shows the LINE and TAP locations on the motor.
Note: I have a 2600HH XL with 2 headlights.
Connect as follows:
3A, LINE: White lead w/piggy back terminal from light harness #1 & white lead from the power harness to the piggy back terminal 2A, TAP: Black lead from light harness #1 3B, LINE: White lead w/piggy back terminal from light harness #2 & black lead from the power harness 2B, TAP: Black lead from light harness #2
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG THEIR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The motor has 5 wires to the motor as stated in the Oreck owners manual, tow are for the headlights, one is a ground wire, and the other two are for the motor. There are two screws that hold in the Oreck motor and a good suggestion is to use tape the wires leads and mark the wires so that you will not make a mistake as you take it apart and reassemble the motor. That way you will not make any mistakes, whether or not you have wires for a headlight or not, the rules are the same. Also refer to the owner’s manual schematic and the exploded view.
