Question about Oreck XL21 Bagged Upright Vacuum
Lights are 12 volts.
The motor has taps on it to pull 12 volts rather than 120 volts for the lights, uses the motor as a transformer.
Should be black and white to the motor from the switch, believe the switch breaks the black wire. White wire should be neutral. I can't remember colors for the wires to the lights. Would expect it to be the white wire and then the "tap" wire to be red.
One crazy way to do it, is to hook up wires, leave the light bulbs out, turn on power, and check voltage at the bulb socket with a voltmeter. (This is one of those things they tell you on television to only let a professional do, do not attempt at home.)

You can get wiring instructions from the Oreck factory. They'll need both your model number and serial number. Here is the number to call: 1-800-989-3535 and here is their website: 1-800-989-3535
Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your 4 thumbs up. Thanks,
