First, check to see if the drive belt for the brush is broken. If it is you need to get it replaced. Also, remove the brush from the cleaner and clean if of all debris then check the small caps at both ends of the brush. If they do not move freely, add a little WD40 and rotate by hand until they move freely. When putting the new belt on or replace the old one, be sure it is put on properly so the brush rotates in the right direction.

Motor smells Oreck Xl2


If it smells electrical, than you may need a new motor. If it smells more like burnt rubber, than you may have a brush or motor problem. To check you brush, take out the 5 screws that hold your bottom plate on the vacuum and remove the plate. Disengage the belt and see if the bearings at each end of the brush turn freely. If they do not, replace your brush. Also spin the motor shaft by hand and see if it turns freely. Hope this helps!

My oreck xl21 won't pull itself.


You need to rotate your brush or replace the brush. Lay your Oreck down, unplugged with the base plate facing up. Remove the 5 screws that hold the plate on and remove the plate. Look at the bearing blocks at each end of the brush, what you are going to be3 looking for are a series of "hash" marks on the black plastic mount. If you see several, rotate the block until you only see one mark at each end and reinstall the brush and belt and that should take care of your issue. If you only see one mark, you need a new brush roller. Hope this helps!

Oreck XL2 does not start.


There could be a problem with the cord. I suggest taking it to a local vacuum shop to have it inspected as that could be the problem

Simply won't turn on!


I believe all Oreck vacuums have a lifetime warranty. You should pursue that.

I have a oreck xl2 and while vacuuming the vacuum quit. The vacuum has the red power light on. Please advise


sounds like a bad motor. if the light is on at the switch and the motor doesn't run, then it could definitely a motor problem, worn down or dirty carbon brushes. the motor on these machines are not the best built, they require cleaning of the commutator yearly.

I shut my vacume off to change its bag out. Now it won't come on. Oreck xl2. There were no noises before turning it off or any smells of rubber burning. Just won't come back on. Is there a reset button....


An access panel mounted atop a vacuum nozzle base via finger operated latches. When the latches are undone the access panel is removed from the top surface of the nozzle base allowing access to the parts of the brush assembly. The panel also has an integral arm which engages a safety motor switch such that when the panel is removed the motor switch is switched into an open circuit position preventing the motor from continued operation
