Orek founder vaccum has no power

Start with opening up the handle on your vacuum. It may be as simple as one of the wires has come off of the switch. I see this every couple of months on the Oreck's that I work on. If that is not the problem, it could be your switch or the power cord, or worse case scenario, the motor. If you have access to a multimeter, you can check the continuity of each of those items and track down your problem that way. Good luck!

Orek very hard to push

The key to pushing an Oreck is to use as low an angle of the handle as is possible. The more upright the handle, the harder it is to push. The closer to the floor that the handle is, the easier the machine is to push.

When we turn on our Orek 3800 XL H2 upright, it just hums. The brushes do not turn.

If its humming that means the motor is trying to turn chances are the belt is off track or somthing is tangled,ie hair,string ect.]So look for that .If thats not the problem than brush motor is burned out.

In the middle of vacuuming the other day,the vacuum just stopped

check another outlet.turn the switch on and off real fast if it comes on the switch is bag.unplug it then reach under the base and turn the brush roller by hand a few times then plug it back in and try again.wiggle the cord around because you might have a bad cord.if none of that works i would take it to a orek repair shop.if the motor starts after you turned the brush roller then either the motor is bad or you have built up some corrosion on the motor armature.the brushes could be bad on the mot.please leave some feedback.i hope i was some help toyou i wish i could have done more.thank you.for giving me the opportunity...pete
