Manual would not, they want you to pay a service tech.

Believe this model has switch in grip,
1. Unplug unit.
2. remove screws from grip.
separate the grip halves to access switch.
3. I believe the power cord, where it enters the grip, has slip on terminals that fit on the switch. Just substitute the wires and re-assemble.

Should not require any soldering. Be careful, routing of the cord in the handle is difficult as I remember, depending on the year model, sometime in late 90s they went from a molded in strain relief to a serpentine path.

I took a defective switch out of my xl2. I need to know hwere I can buy a new switch


Easiest solution will be to go to an authorized Oreck shop. Next best bet may be any vac shop. Third option is online, but likely they don't want to sell it you, but have you take it to an authorized dealer for liability reasons.

How do you install the switch for the oreck vacumn properly?


The Orecks I have worked on have a plastic handgrip area surrounding a metal handle rod.
Undo the handle screws and the handle should separate like a **** shell revealing the switch and harness. Pull gently on the wire terminal with a pair of needle nose pliers not behind it.
Be careful not to flex the switch contacts as they may break off. reinstall any insulation around the switch before reasembling.

On/off switch for Oreck XL2600HH


Would have to assume by now you figured this out. However, need to open up the handle. It is a clamshell arrangement. Remove switch from handle, pull one wire at a time from the switch. The electrical connectors are a push-on type. Replace each one, one at a time, to the new switch, and then re-insert switch into handle. Close up the clamshell, tightening all of the screws, but do not strip the plastic housing.

My Oreck beater bar is not turning. The bar is free of hair or strings, the motor is working, just the bar will not move


If the motor is working then check the drive belt. There's a door on the right hand side of the Oreck that comes off with a cross head screw. Check the drive belt isn't broken. If its intact then its a possibility that the beater bar has seized up - beater bars from Oreck are available although you should check EBay to see if you can get a cheaper part. Sounds like a drive belt problem though.

I put a new belt on my oreck xl and it is burning through why?


The problem you are having is that the brush roller is not spinning freely when the belt is not on. if the end caps of the roller can be removed, clean the dirt & carpet fiber out and test. if it can not you just may need to replace the roller
