My oreck xl 3800 H2 upright vacuum cleaner does not turn on. It worked fine the last time I used it. Is there some sort of fuse that may have burned out?

    We opened the handle of ours and discovered that one of the plugs had become disconnected. Very quick fix

Usually no fuse on these.

Assume the outlet has been checked?

I'd look at the on/off switch (that is a 2 speed unit, tight?) or the diode the gives the 2-speed choice, or the power cord as my first culprits.

When we turn on our Orek 3800 XL H2 upright, it just hums. The brushes do not turn.


If its humming that means the motor is trying to turn chances are the belt is off track or somthing is tangled,ie hair,string ect.]So look for that .If thats not the problem than brush motor is burned out.

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

My Oreck Vacuum cleaner keeps burning up belts. I


I am having the same trouble. I bought the vacuum new in October 2007 when my wife and I purchased a newly constructed home. Since it is only two of us, she only has to vacuum once a month. I have taken it in three different times and get the same story. It needed a new belt. Mine has white smoke coming out of it and smells like burning rubber. I contacted Oreck and got no results. They refused to let me discuss this with Dave Oreck, stating that he nevers talks with customers! Gary Neeble

My Oreck XL was working fine, then when I vacuumed a shag rug is started smoking and smelled like something is burning. (I changed the bag, checked for clogs--none found, and roller brush is turning. It...


Even though the brush is spinning, the belt is probably worn out and stretched. when you vacuum the shag carpet, it puts more drag on the brush. try running it on a shorter carpet or hard floor for a few minutes. if it doesn't smoke, then you know it's your belt. if it does smoke, then it's probably the motor burning up.
