    Same thing here, opened up the handle to splice together a cut wire and the odd spring mechanism consisting of a somewhat "U" shaped wire that is bent differently on either end. I did see that orginally it was through the hole at the top of the shaft part of the handle.

    Replaced on/off switch but handle won't stay on the shaft. There are no screws that go through the handle & the shaft to hold it on. Am I missing a piece or just doing something wrong? My wife took the handle off while I was at work so I don't know how she got it off.

Place handle half with the posts that hold the screws facing up.

silver pole with hole that goes completely throuigh goes over lower screw post (Long side)

static wire - L shaped end goes in small hole on opposite side of handle just below
vacuum switch hole, curve of wire should follow curve of handle and fits into top of
silver pole and pushes againt it providing push to hold siver pole.

hope this helps

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I suggest that the upper handle for the Oreck XL2200 should just be help on by sliding the handle over the upper handle assm and there is one screw that you use to tighten the hand e to the upper section, the lower handle assm just slides in to the lower motor assm handle and so does the top. I was not aware of any wire for the handle assm. Feel free to contact the Oreck Corp factory phone number listed below or call your local vacuum dealer in the yellow pages.

How do I access a wiring diagram for handle switch assembly on an Oreck XL upright vacuum?


Go to www.hescoinc.com. Click on schematics under information on the left side of the page, then click on Oreck and find your model. Hopefully that has enough detail for you. You can order parts from them too at prices lower than most other distributors.

How to replace power cord hook


The lower cord hook is held in by a screw removed with a phillips screwdriver. The upper cord hook has a nut on an "L" shaped bolt. The "L" goes through the hole in the handle. Reassemble the cord hook parts in the same way they were before.

Where does the static wire go in the handle. It fell out and now I am having trouble getting it back in. I fixed the cord myself. Model XL2100rh


If you look closely, you can see a sahllow groove along the inside top of the handle. The curved portion of the static wire fits in that. One end fits in a hole just below the switch, the other end just goes down inside the metal post.

The handle broke off what do I do?


Look up the local Oreck store in your city/town. They carry most of the parts to repair an Oreck. I have a similar model and found the store near me has everything. You can even bring them your unit so they can see exactly what you need. You only have to pay for the part(s) needed and reassemble everything yourself.

Best of luck!

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.

Oreck Vacuum troubleshooting


Hi. If the motor is on its way out the motor noise will be eratic eg slowing down speeding up popping noise & a smell of electrical burning. If you have none of these symptoms then chances are its not the motor. Does the bag inflate or is it easy to collapse when you push the bag ? If bag inflates ok check belt. If bag not fully inflating check for blockages along length of the handle pipe its designed to pull apart by lifting up rubber sleeve at machine end of pipe, push ball latch in & pull pipe out remove any debris stuck in the pipe. Remove bbottom of machine as if replacing belt check to see if there is any debris stuck in the oppening that goes to motor fan, then check the fan blades you can see them through the port is there any missing or snapped off. If blades are missing or have big chunks missing you will need to replace. If fan only has minor bits missing then reassemble it should now worl well.
