Either your switch is not making a contact internally or the wire that runs from the motor to the switch is loose or not connected, or that speed is burned out on the motor. Those motors have a separate wire for each speed, so it's either not getting power to the motor from the switch or the that speed setting is burned out on the motor its self. I would just work around it and use the low or high setting until you can take it apart to test if the motor is getting power from the switch, if so then the motor is bad, usually the bearings go out on the motors before the wiring does. Unless your motor was on medium and was stopped for a long period and overheated that setting which will melt the wires and cause it to not work. They have a safety switch on the motors now to keep this from happening.
Not trying to be funny, but it depends on the wire, if your air purifier is still running or not, whether you have lost hi/low settings etc. Or is your plug wire and you lost the internal ground wire. Attached link you are able to download user manual. Need to be more detailed, color of wire, location of break. Hope this helps, or provide make model, and other details.

It depends on what you paid for it.I checked out Oreck and they had no free downloads available for anything.Here is their customer service though to find out about parts,diagrams,etc.Some places will not sell parts to consumers,some will.Here is the link. http://www.oreck.com/SiteMap
It is possible, however a bump of solder creates a spark-gap betwen the layers. This is a link to my blog explaining how to disassemble/assemble the cell, and another way to fix this. If you do solder please post and let me know how this works out.
It's probably arcing due to a buildup of oxidized particles from the air and the high voltage field wires. Spraying electrical contact cleaner in the vicinity of the spark/arc may clean it -- make sure the unit is not plugged in when you do this and that you give it plenty of time to dry before plugging it back in (couple of hours). If cleaing doesn't help, there's not much you can do -- the wire will eventually burn through and break. Then it's back to Oreck or to the landfill.
