The light clips into the top and mid point of that black on off switch.
It is the biggest pain to see those 2 entry terminals on the back of that switch and the only way is to cut those white tie wraps that go around the light wires to the pot metal frame to get just the extra amount you will need.
A good light source and a sharp pair of needle nose pliers will be needed to push the 2 light plugs into that main black switch.
I used to dread that when replacing those entire switches until getting used to it.
Another note that if you get the motor wires reversed when plugging them into that switch......it reverses the motor and will blow instead of suck.
Black wire from the power cord goes onto the wire connection closest to where it comes into the back of the vacuum. There should be a black dot beside the wire connection on the motor. On the other side of the motor, there should be another black dot beside a wire connection and the two white wires will go there. The white wire coming from the lights usually has a double connection and it will go on first and then the white wire from the power cord will go onto the other side of the double connector. The black wire coming from the light usually will go to a wire connector right next to the white wires or just above it . Hope this helps!
I cannot find a wiring diagram from where I am located right now, but I do know that the black wire coming from the power cord goes to the top side of the motor when you have it laying upside down with the cover off, and it will go to the tab towards the back of the vacuum. Sometimes they put a black dot beside the tab and if that is there you put your wires from the power cord on those. You will also have two wires coming from your light bar in front and the white wire will usually have a piggy-back terminal that your white wire from the power cord attaches to as well. If there are no black dots beside the terminal tabs the white wires will connect to the bottom terminal on the opposite side from the black power cord wire. It will usually be on the lower side of the motor as well. The black wire from the light bar will go on the remaining terminal tab as there is usually only three tabs on the motor. I will check back later this week to see if this has helped you and if not I should be able to get a diagram this weekend.
Pull the head cover off to check the belt, if the belt is ok then it might be the power connection between the handle and the power head shaft. If the red light is on the power head, then its not the connection because its getting power. Now some heads have a reset button on them,you could check this also. With the cover off the power head, remove the belt, now turn it on, and be careful, but try to make the motor shaft spin,with one finger, because if it does start to spin you do not want to hurt your finger.
If the motor starts to spin,put the belt back on, if it does not spin again, the motor is too weak. If it does not spin at all, the motor is bad.Hope this helps you,and you get it working.

Posted by Brigham81 on Jul 05, 2008 I was vacuuming the stairs, and all of a sudden the light went out and the motor stopped. Is it possible to overheat it, or blow a fuse?Thanks,Brigham Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Oreck XL2200 Bagged Upright Vacuum. It sounds to me that when the lights go out and it stops working that the motor is bad that you would have to replace the motor. It is still cheaper to replace the motor than to purchase a new vacuum. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. http://www.oreck.com/Customer Service1-800-989-3535 Monday thru Friday Hours are: 7:00 am to 7:00 pm CST Saturday and Sunday Hours Are; 8:00 am to 4:30 pm CST Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.

http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=49977&thid=601650 No power to the motor Posted by jdw121 on May 16, 2008 When I turn the machine on (both red and black switches) the red heat light goes on but the motor does not. If I leave the unit unplugged for a half hour or more, the unit will turn on. If I turn it off and then try a few seconds or minutes, the motor will not turn on. Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that you may have a thermal switch problem – when the machine gets too hot it will shut off to protect the machine until it cools off and then it will re-start or if it gets hot or plugged. The one light could be for the heater and the other could be for the motor, but it is a good idea to check with the customer service dept @ Bissell to see if they have a better solution and also check in the trouble shooting part of the owner’s manual.

You have to remove the motor cover, There I believe 5 screw, take off the light lens and remove the screw holding the light. It should then pull off. You say you have power to the Vac, but do you have power to the motor. There also is a thermo by the motor, sometimes they open up, then the motor won't run.
