You can also set the brush to the middle setting of the special/ normal brush settings. Also, your micro-sweep blade might have popped off making it very hard to push in that direction. The micro-sweep is the plate held by two screws right below the intake with the little blade that sticks up.

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.

SOURCE: replace belt on my oreck xl

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.

SOURCE: 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.

MANUAL ORECK XL21


The Oreck XL21 is a refurbished XL vacuum. All Oreck manuals are available here: http://www.oreck.com/Product-User-Guides/global-user-guide,default,pg.html . Scroll down to the upright vacuums; the XL21 manual is below the Gold Power Team and XL21600 manuals. The direct link to the manual is http://demandware.edgesuite.net/aajc_prd/on/demandware.static/Sites-oreck-Site/Sites-oreck-Library/default/v1360683265798/images/userguides/Vacuum-RefurbishedXL21-XL21-userguide.pdf . The XL21 uses many of the same parts as the XL Platinum.

I hope this helps.

Doesn't pick up


This could be a few reasons. Check and make sure your bag is not full of dirt, a full bag will make your vacuum's suction worse. Next check for clogs of dirt and debris. Check the nozzle and brushroll too. If you find no clogs and the brushroll and belt look good, it may be your vacuum fan is damaged and needs to be replaced.

I have an oreck xl and the vaccum wont hardly push. Is it the belt? The brushes aren't turning when I lay it on it side. How do you replace the belt? If you can give detailed instructions I would so...


On the side of the head you'll see a removable plate with one screw. Remove the screw and slide the plate towards the front until it's off. You'll see the belt.

Latch pin keeps spinning off belt door?


The only correct solution is to replace the door. A small piece of tape works well too

Simply won't turn on!


I believe all Oreck vacuums have a lifetime warranty. You should pursue that.

Burning smell and not picking up


check for blockabe in bag inlet area, or bottom of unit by intake pivot.
ez check is to feel if bag blows firmly up with air when on, if not, you have a blockage.
