Question about Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum
I just replaced the roller on my Oreck XL. Put everything back into place properly, and it is smelling like burning rubber after a few minutes of use.
If the roller bearings are starting to seize the the belt may be slipping

SOURCE: replace belt on my oreck xl
Either have to take the bottom plate off, or there is a small door with one screw to remove to replace the belt. Then it goes around the motor shaft and then over the pulley on the brush roll.

The problem you are having is that the brush roller is not spinning freely when the belt is not on. if the end caps of the roller can be removed, clean the dirt & carpet fiber out and test. if it can not you just may need to replace the roller

Testimonial: "Quick answer and the same thing I found out after I posted from an Oreck repair site. Thanks."
It sounds like the belt has been damaged. You can get another belt from yoru local Oreck store. You can even take it in to the store to show them what happened. Purchase another belt and replace it. (It was very easy when I did this, so hopefully the belt is all you'll need too.)
Best of luck!
