SOURCE: replace belt on my oreck xl
Either have to take the bottom plate off, or there is a small door with one screw to remove to replace the belt. Then it goes around the motor shaft and then over the pulley on the brush roll.

the main tube is clogged.
unplug it, open bag area, remove bag look for clog.
if clear, take off lower coller, pull up tube, remove blockage, either in tube or fan area.
if clear, look in bottom by intake area for blockage.
fan can not run backwards.

I see your post is from May. I just joined Fixya this month so, id you're still looking for a solution, I would saythe belt broken or is so stretched the roller isn't spinning. Here is an link to an online guide with illustrations for changing belt. Also check the roller brushes for wear and change if necessary. Hope this helps.

yes. it might be broken. you will need to remove the 5 screw on the bottom and see if the belt is burned. it more that likly is.

Testimonial: "Quick answer and the same thing I found out after I posted from an Oreck repair site. Thanks."
Same problem here with XL9100. Bag would not expand implying no suction. Motor ran and brushes turned. Easy disassembly using common tools found that a plastic bag had been sucked up and caused a blockage prior to the impeller. Cleaned up, reassembled, and everything worked fine after that.
