If the cord coming from the bottom up to the handle is loose, and is a plug, push it in. If that doesn't help. then could be a problem with the motor. One other thing to check is inside the handle, maybe a wire came loose.

Probably have a clog some where in the base and that is what causes it to throw stuff back out.

Have an Oreck XL upright, when switch turned on no "Power" checked receptical and power supply is OK


What typically happends is if the vacuum falls over the cord will come disconnected from the switch.
there are 6 screws on the handle if you unscrew them the handle will seperate down the middle. you will see a few wires in there. the whites wires should be wire nuted together while the black wire from the long cord, the side that you plug in to the wall, would plug on to the top of the switch, unless you have a 2- speed vacuum the it also would plug into the top but on the prong that is closes to you. it will make sense when you open it up. there is another cord that come up from the base of the vacuum to the handle which is called the up cord. the black wire that comes from that plugs in to the bottom of the switch.
if that doesnt work then you might have a short in your cord that will need to be replaced or your motor could have gone bad. and oreck motor typically last about 8 to 10 years.
if more problems occur i would recommend bringing it to and authorized Oreck dealer. If your vacuum is under warranty it will be fixed for free.

I was vacuuming and the vacuum just stopped running. The cord is fairly new so I know it isn't that. Any suggestions?


Sometimes when the small pipe from the motor fan gets plugged up the motor will overheat. For safety reasons, the motor shuts off. If you able to start up the vacuum later, and the suction is not great, then follow the owner's manual to unplug the hose. It is not difficult, but it does require disassembly of the sweeper part of the vacuum. Make sure that you unplug the machine before you try to make any repairs. I have had to do this myself on occasion when the vac seemed to lose suction power. Another problem might be that you vacuum bag might be too full.

Since you mentioned that the cord is fairly new, I will make the assumption that you replaced the cord. If that is the case, then make sure the cord is unplugged from the wall, and check the connections of the cord to the vacuum. One of the wires might not have been attached properly and worked it was loose. This can happen especially if you pull hard of the cord when vacuuming. Oreck's come with a fairly long cord, but you still have to plug into a socket when you run out of cord.

If either of those suggestions does not work, then I recommend a service call to a local repair center.

Not working  I hit the switch and there is no sound of a motor.  Nothing is happening.  It was working seconds earlier and suddenly it stopped.  The plug was in and I replugged it into...


If it was just a broken belt you would still hear the motor running. most likely its in your cord or switch. check the main cord, connections to the switch, and also the motor supply cord that goes from the handle to the vacuum head.

My oreck XL7 smells when it's on. Smells as if it's the motor. Had the Oreck for 4 years but hardly used it?


The smell is probably from the belt. When they are worn and stretched they can start to smell. You can get replacement belts for your model here:

That the bottom plate off, check for a clog in the inlet. If clear, then you probably have a clog in the handle tube. You will have to take the handle loose to clean it out. It may also need a new belt if you haven't changed it for a while, they stretch.

Oreck Vacuum Cleaner problem (upright)


The best solution to any Oreck vacuum problem is to replace it with another brand. You are going to continue having problems with the Oreck..Not that other brands don't have problems. But, at least with
other brands the problems don't occur as often. Belt burning up. clogs, roller brush bristle wearing down prematurely, cord breaking internally, etc.
P.S. Oreck is good at one thing. Marketing!
