Question about Oreck Vacuums
Changed out roller brush and trying to get belt back on .
All it takes is some Wheaties and elbow grease. Try placing the belt side in first with the grey or black bearing cap on. Then just kinda wedge it in making sure that both end caps are in the right position for a new belt.

Sounds like the Oreck is clogged. You'll have to undo the bag by the way of the clip in the middle at the back of the main black spindel neck and then at the bottom. Then take apart the main neck by pushing the rubber mounts upwards to release the pip fitting locks and holes. You should find that either the top of the neck or the bottom - where the dust channel feeder is located - is clogged. Either that or there may be a clog in the main dust channel after the roller brush or wedged into the fan unit itself - the Oreck XL is a dirty fan system which means clogged dirt can often get stuck between the dirt and the dirt channel.

If the pulley on the brush roll is worn, then I would replace the brushroll. Look at the ends where the brush roll sits in to make sure the casing hasn't over heated and not holding the brush in place. Also make sure the motor is shifting and causing the belt to come off. Another is if you are catching a rug or towel, that also will cause the belt to come off. I am assuming you using a new belt and not a worn one. After only a short time, belts stretch and need to be replaced.

That the bottom plate off, check for a clog in the inlet. If clear, then you probably have a clog in the handle tube. You will have to take the handle loose to clean it out. It may also need a new belt if you haven't changed it for a while, they stretch.

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.
