Question about Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum
Vacuum is cutting on and off during operation
It sounds like you probably have a bad spot in the cord. What happens is you get a kink in a spot or you run over the cord and it loses continuity there, but only when it's bent a certain way. Turn it on and wiggle the cord from one end to the other I think you'll find the problem there.
Otherwise, if that isn't it, your motor is possibly the problem. Does it smell like burnt electrical when its running? A frozen motor carbon brush will cause this or just plain worn out carbons can do it as well.
Lastly It could be the switch but they generally just stop working and its on or off and no in between.
I'd bet it's the cord.
