No there is no reset switch. If you have no power, make sure wires are connected to switch inside handle.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG THEIR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The motor has 5 wires to the motor as stated in the Oreck owners manual, tow are for the headlights, one is a ground wire, and the other two are for the motor. There are two screws that hold in the Oreck motor and a good suggestion is to use tape the wires leads and mark the wires so that you will not make a mistake as you take it apart and reassemble the motor. That way you will not make any mistakes, whether or not you have wires for a headlight or not, the rules are the same. Also refer to the owner’s manual schematic and the exploded view.

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: My upright Oreck Vacuume XL 2

the main tube is clogged.
unplug it, open bag area, remove bag look for clog.
if clear, take off lower coller, pull up tube, remove blockage, either in tube or fan area.
if clear, look in bottom by intake area for blockage.
fan can not run backwards.
good luck.

SOURCE: formed metal wire inside handle

this bent metal wire goes right at the surface in a grove where the two pieces of the handle go together where your fingers grip it. I think it is to discharge static electricity.

The roller brush on my Oreck XL Classic has only center bristles. Both sides have been worn down to nothing. It is hard to push.Why are the bristles wearing down?


Sounds as if the wheels are collapsed on one side and the brush is harder in contact on one side. In correct alignment the brush should just kiss the top of the carpet causing the bristles to flex a little.

Oreck will fix it for you under warranty;

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.

I have an Oreck XL 2310RS. What bag number do I need for it? Thanks.


All oreck uprights take bag type CC. I would Recommend buying oreck brand bags. they have the only patton on the bags. off brand bags will work but they will leak and tear and break.

Oreck XL upright - has a 2 speed switch. Now only works in high speed not low speed. Will a new switch correct or is it the motor


Your vacuum is fine. The switch can either run at full speed or half speed. You are running at full speed, you need a new 2 speed switch. You can pick them up at an Oreck Store for $29 or around $15 on eBay

The belt is on properly, however the brush will spin, then stop.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Oreck XL Classic. It sounds like the belt may be stretched out and my needs replacing. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months and to store the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. Also check the brushroll, the gray bearing ends with say on either side the words NEW or OLD and both ends need to be identical – new/new and old/old NOT new/old, if the belt and the brushroll are OK then it may be the motor but I don’t think so. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
