Oreck XL 2600 upright won't turn on

Fairly new machine.  Worked great until one day it would not turn on.

Is this a simple fix?  Replace a fuse or something?

Our local dealer is making it sound like it is a major repair - but I don't think so.

Thanks.

If it is fairly new, does it still have warranty on it? Could be a number of things, the power cord, on/off switch or a problem with the motor.

How to tighten Oreck XL upright position to stay upright


The detent that is mounted to the inside of the housing is probably broken off and the only way to get that fixed is to replace the housing. If you have been getting regular tune ups at a service center there may be the possibility of getting that done under warranty depending on how old your vacuum is and how long the warranty period is for that vacuum.

Hi, I have a 1 year old XL Pro Plus Upright. Motor works fine, brushes are turning but it will not create any vacuum. we made sure thenew bag is connected properly and still no suction. Any advise? Thanks,...


The belt that turns the brush bar is probably stretched and worn. Once this happens, you will lose suction. When they get worn they stretch, thus causing it to spin on the bar itself.Just simply replace the belt with a new one that fits your machine.

Good Luck!

I was vacuuming and the vacuum just stopped running. The cord is fairly new so I know it isn't that. Any suggestions?


Sometimes when the small pipe from the motor fan gets plugged up the motor will overheat. For safety reasons, the motor shuts off. If you able to start up the vacuum later, and the suction is not great, then follow the owner's manual to unplug the hose. It is not difficult, but it does require disassembly of the sweeper part of the vacuum. Make sure that you unplug the machine before you try to make any repairs. I have had to do this myself on occasion when the vac seemed to lose suction power. Another problem might be that you vacuum bag might be too full.

Since you mentioned that the cord is fairly new, I will make the assumption that you replaced the cord. If that is the case, then make sure the cord is unplugged from the wall, and check the connections of the cord to the vacuum. One of the wires might not have been attached properly and worked it was loose. This can happen especially if you pull hard of the cord when vacuuming. Oreck's come with a fairly long cord, but you still have to plug into a socket when you run out of cord.

If either of those suggestions does not work, then I recommend a service call to a local repair center.

My oreck xl 3800 H2 upright vacuum cleaner does not turn on. It worked fine the last time I used it. Is there some sort of fuse that may have burned out?


Usually no fuse on these.

Assume the outlet has been checked?

I'd look at the on/off switch (that is a 2 speed unit, tight?) or the diode the gives the 2-speed choice, or the power cord as my first culprits.
