My new upright(NOT an Oreck) is over three years old and hasn't needed a new belt so far. Orecks clog very easily, and when you bring it in for repairs, or for the yearly "tuneup", what the store manager wants you to do is spend more money on the existing sweeper, new roller brush, for example. That's the reason for the yearly checkup, to BRING you back into the store so you can spend more to help Mr Oreck make more money.
Seems like you either have a connection to Oreck or simply think that an overpriced, cheaply built vacuum cleaner is actually a good machine.

SOURCE: 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.
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.

If it smells like burning rubber with white smoke its the belt make sure the brush spins freely. If its a electrical burning it will smell real bad you WILL be able to tell which then its a motor issue you can remove the bottom plate 5 phillips head screws opposite the motor youll see 1 screw remove it pry the duct out and look to see if there's anything stuck in the fan if not its the motor its self
