Question about Oreck XL Deluxe U3700 Bagged Upright Vacuum
IF IT PUSHED EASILY ON THE SAME CARPET BEFORE, THEN THE BRUSHROLL IS NO LONGER CONTACTING THE CARPET IT USED TO. A NEW BRUSHROLL AND/ OR BELT SHOULD GET YOU MOVING AGAIN. TRY THE BELT FIRST, MUCH CHEAPER.
IF YOU HAVE RECENTLY CHANGED THE BELT BY REMOVING THE BASEPLATE (NOT THE RECOMMENDED WAY) CHECK BASEPLATE TO MAKE SURE IT IS FLUSH WITH HOUSING.

If you removed the bottom of your vacuum, then it's quite possible that the squeegee was not installed properly. On the side of the squeegee that faces up (to the operator) there is a groove that snaps over the baseplate. If the groove isn't snapped ove the baseplate, the vacuum is extremely hard to push (don't ask me how I know and I won't have to lie).

The key here is the angle of push. The closer the handle is to the floor, the easier the Oreck XL is to push. Use your shoulder rather than your elbow with your arm extended down as far as you can.

Try replacing the belt, even if its not broken it could be so stretched out it isn't turning properly.

Look at 3 things:
(1) is there something wrapped around the rear
wheels or axles?
(2) Is there something wrapped around the small, front wheels or axles. (not likely this is the culprit.)
(3) Is your brushroll still turning. (This requires looking underneath while unit is on, have someone else nearby to pull the cord from wall, turn on & off quickly and make sure brush roll spins.
If it is rear wheels, you can pop them out if necessary to clean the debris, they may be hard to press back in. Similar for the small front wheels, don't loose the axles. If brush roll is issue, check belt, insure that brush roll will spin freely and does not have debris wrapped around it.
