The key to pushing an Oreck is to use as low an angle of the handle as is possible. The more upright the handle, the harder it is to push. The closer to the floor that the handle is, the easier the machine is to push.

How or where do I find the reset button for Orek Magnesium

I do not have one but I do not think there is a reset. Unplug it, plug in a lamp in the outlet to be sure it works, if so plug the vac in and see if it works, if not you probably have a bad cord, switch or a lifted brush in the motor (motor failed)

Orek founder vaccum has no power

Start with opening up the handle on your vacuum. It may be as simple as one of the wires has come off of the switch. I see this every couple of months on the Oreck's that I work on. If that is not the problem, it could be your switch or the power cord, or worse case scenario, the motor. If you have access to a multimeter, you can check the continuity of each of those items and track down your problem that way. Good luck!

When we turn on our Orek 3800 XL H2 upright, it just hums. The brushes do not turn.

If its humming that means the motor is trying to turn chances are the belt is off track or somthing is tangled,ie hair,string ect.]So look for that .If thats not the problem than brush motor is burned out.
