    The insulation going into the handle opened and was sparking this morning while cleaning. not good.



    I took the handle apart to shorten the wires so that the insulation would look good. (10 minute job)



    it's like 2 hours later and I can't get the vacuum to turn back on. I rewired it the way it's supposed to be.and it's just not turning back on...



    HELP!!!

    Like others, I need the handle wiring diagram for the Oreck XL (3600) upright.
    The wire insulation tore apart after 6 years (don't know why they don't reinforce it). Rather quick repair, until grandson decided to help and pulled the wires off the rocker (on/off) switch while I was out of the room.
    Thanks

Vacuum won't switch on;got it apart;cord ok;need wiring diagram


Its a great idea to write on paper how its connected . So it helps with dis assembly & reassembly . I tried a Internet search . Looks like it'd cost money for a service manual. Though. I found a Kirby Spares Website that could help. Although it doesnt have Document downloads with repair help. There are spares & there is a telephone number for an engineer available during office hours. That you could ask for repair help. With wiring connections for your Kirby G3.

The Engineers Telephone Number is 0845 388 9301

Wiring Schematices


I had the same problem after not paying attention to the connections when replacing my motor. I spent days searching for information and only found several non-answers with small photos that no one can read.I contacted Oreck for wiring information. They explicitly stated that they can't provide any wiring information for safety and liability reasons.

I found the Ametek schematic which shows the LINE and TAP locations on the motor.

Note: I have a 2600HH XL with 2 headlights.

Connect as follows:

3A, LINE: White lead w/piggy back terminal from light harness #1 & white lead from the power harness to the piggy back terminal
2A, TAP: Black lead from light harness #1
3B, LINE: White lead w/piggy back terminal from light harness #2 & black lead from the power harness
2B, TAP: Black lead from light harness #2
