Hi I have an Oreck lw100 magnesium SP and it turns on for a second and then turns right off what do you think that could be thank you

It can be something stuck in roller or fan housing and it is turning off to protect the motor.

The side housing where the belt is will not go back on. It is in the unlocked position and will not turn to locked

You need to make sure that cap is sitting completely flat before you can turn it and I usually used a pair of needle nose pliers and stuck the points of the pliers into two of the holes in that cap and used the pliers to turn the cap. It can be hard to turn, so be patient with it. Hope this helps!

How do I change the belt on an Oreck Magnesium LW100?

Lori, I work at an Oreck store on the weekends and we have a special tool that we use to open up the side where you have the belt. Before we got the tool, we just used a needle nose plier and put the two points into a couple of the dimples on the hub for the two large wheels. The side that you need to take off is the side that has the little filter on the inside of the frame. By the way, you should clean that filter off occasionally as well. If you look on the side of the grey hub you will see a pictogram of two different padlocks, one locked and the other one un-locked. You will also see a pictogram of an arrow pointing to the locked padlock and you will need to use the pliers to turn the hub till it points to the un-locked padlock. You can then pull the side housing off and that will expose your belt. You may need to take off the brush plate as well so that it is easier to put your new belt on. Two screws is all that holds that plate in place. Take them out and lift towards the front of the machine. I usually find it easier to put the belt on the brush pulley first and then walk the belt around the motor shaft. Re-assembly is just a matter of reversing the steps you did to take it apart. Hope this helps!

Why does blinking light come on and vacuum shuts off

If this is happening right after you turn the vacuum on, you probably have a belt issue or a brush roller issue. I would start with checking your brush roller to see if it spins freely. If it spins real freely, your belt is probably broken. If it spins freely but with some resistance, you still might need to replace the belt. I just worked on one last week that had that problem and a new belt fixed it. Worse case scenario, you might have a bad sensor. That sensor looks for the brush to spin at a certain speed and if it does not sense the right speed, it shuts the vacuum down and the light flashes. Hope this helps!

My Oreck XL 9100HA started smoking (white smoke) when I vacuumed. There is a burning rubber smell. How do I check/change (if appropriate) the belt? I have no User manual, nor can I locate one on the Oreck...

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!

Oreck Vacuum Cleaner problem (upright)

The best solution to any Oreck vacuum problem is to replace it with another brand. You are going to continue having problems with the Oreck..Not that other brands don't have problems. But, at least with
other brands the problems don't occur as often. Belt burning up. clogs, roller brush bristle wearing down prematurely, cord breaking internally, etc.
P.S. Oreck is good at one thing. Marketing!
