Re: 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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You need to do a bag wash of your outer bag. You will need to take the bag dock off if you have one of those on your vacuum or take off the "U" shaped clip if you do not have a bag dock and then pull the bag off of the connector assembly. You will also need to remove the plastic part at the bottom of the bag, you can usually use a flat blade screwdriver to pop that plastic part off. Turn your bag inside out and if you have a canister vacuum, vacuum the bag off the best that you can. If you do not have a canister vacuum, you could hose the bag off with a spray nozzle to get rid of any excess dirt. You then want to soak the bag in hot water with the Oreck Enzyme Odor Eater or with a good quality soap. I work at an Oreck store on weekends and we do this frequently. The Enzyme odor eater works great and leaves a nice smell behind in the bag fibers. We usually soak it overnight and then rinse the bag real well and then let it hang dry. If it is a nice sunny day, you can hang it outside and it should dry in 3 to 4 hours. Then you just reverse the process to put everything back together. Hope this helps!
Go to www.hescoinc.com. Click on schematics under information on the left side of the page, then click on Oreck and find your model. Hopefully that has enough detail for you. You can order parts from them too at prices lower than most other distributors.
The detent that is mounted to the inside of the base cover is not working either because the screw holding has broken off or it is worn out. You could also have a worn out fan housing since that is what the detent catches to make it stand up. If the screw is broken off the only way to repair it is to replace the housing. Hope this helps.
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 had a terrible time trying to install a bag, too! The hinged piece must be closed. Hook the cardboard backing on the opening and
line up the pieces sticking out on either side of the hinged piece with the openings in the cardboard on the back of the bag. It has two places where you're supposed to place your fingers and push until it pops. Neither my husband nor I could make it pop, so I just looked at the back of the hinged piece and saw a little clamp type thing cut out in the plastic. This has to hook onto the plastic piece that is connected to the vacuum cleaner. Just bend it out and hook it on, making sure that everything is lined up.
I have a Oreck XL and the propeller that is in the housing will become hard for the moter to turn. I have took it apart and do not see a problem, but when I reinstall the parts it will run for about 15 sec. and the moter will stop turning. When the propeller housing is off the motor turns ok and doesn't stop. Do I need a new propeller/housing?
