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.

I just replaced the fan (plastic) on an XL9100. I assume you got the bottom plate off (5 screws).
Undo the single screw holding the suction housing in place.
Remove the two screws holding the motor in place and gently lift the assemble up, being careful not to stress the wires. The motor and fan assembly should now be exposed. If the nut holdling fan in place is removed, the whole fan should slide right off. If it does not, try a little WD-40 on the shaft and wiggle and move from side to side. (I slipped a small drill bit between the motor fan (motor cooling fan) to prevent the shaft from turning when you remove the nut.) Be sure you turn the nut counter-clockwise to remove it.
You should now have the fan off. Reverse the procedure to place the new fan - following the directions carefully as some assemblies need a washer and "feathered" washer on the top.
Assuming everything went well, it should work.
My 9100 sucked a magnetic bearing and trashed the metal fan to where suction was weak. The new fan works great.

SOURCE: oreck xl 9100 bag wont stay on
What year model?
Pre-late 1990s, bag on upright just fit over the adapter in the tube.
Lat 1990s, went to a version that had a sliding piece of paper to cloe off the bag & prevent spillage, and required a hinged plastic piece for chipboard piece on bag to slide into.
Must have right bag for the unit, otherwise it will not stay on, will leak.
