Question about Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum
1) If your vacuum has the small side door on the cover of the lower unit, can remove the screw, it will allow you to access the belt. I assume old belt is broken, so what you see will be the end of the motor shaft ( a small, round shaft about 1/4" in diameter) and the end of the brush roll, (about a 3/4" to 1" round plastic knob attached to the end of the brush roll.) Make sure each of these turns freely, otherwise you are going to burn up another belt. Slide belt over these two points, replace the access cover, and turn on.
2) If you have an older unit or maybe the commercial unit, you will need to remove the bottom cover. A bunch of screws, don't remember how many at this time. After you remove the cover, you will see the two points I described above. Replace belt then replace the bottom cover (called a baseplate on a parts diagram probably). Make sure the rubber bumper is properly seated, it can be a pain sometimes.
While inside the unit under either scenario, I always would try to clean out any excess dirt, dust, etc.
