Re: Oreck 9100C Vac
Http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=19810&thid=647356 Oreck 9100C Vac Posted by thecleaner on Jun 04, 2008 How to I replace both belt and brush correctly. Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Oreck XL 9100C Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum. The best way to install the belt is to put the belt on the brushroll 1st and then install the brushroll, the brushroll has marking on the top and the bottom of the bearings stating NEW or USED / OLD and install them identical on both sides and then use a belt puller to stretch it onto the motor pulley. The best place to get instructions on how to install the belt and brushroll is the owner’s manual and an owner’s manual is from the Oreck Factory of which I will supply for you listed below or you can download the owner’s manual from the Oreck Website. . I would check with your local Oreck dealer or vacuum dealer in your area to see what is going on. This is most unusual for this to happen. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. http://www.oreck.com/Customer Service1-800-989-3535 Monday thru Friday Hours are: 7:00 am to 7:00 pm CST Saturday and Sunday Hours Are; 8:00 am to 4:30 pm CST http://www.a-1vacuum.com/1-800-657-1874Customer Service Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.

Usually the belt that's stored in the groove on the bottom of the body is the correct one for the unit, and doesn't require much stretching to get it into the channel. If yours was in a bag of some sort then all bets are off. I'll start as though you were installing one you had just bought from a dealer. Remove the bottom plate so that you can get to the motor and brush roll housing. This can usually be achieved by lay the unit out flat either on a table or the floor. With your NEW belt in hand, remove any pieces of the old belt and discard them. Remove the brush roll from it's housing and install the new belt over the drive end of the motor. Pull the opposite end up and over the drive portion of the brush roll. Now you'll have to maneuver the bearing shrouds into their respective support areas, usually by levering the drive end up and over the right end and then the idler end. Once done, rotate the brushroll by hand to make sure the belt is in the correct place. Replace the bottom plate, install the screws and you should be ready to vac.
THERE IS A SINGLE SCREW ON THE SIDE OF THE VAC KNOWN AS THE 'BELT DOOR'.
LAY VAC ON IT'S RIGHT SIDE, SO THE BELT DOOR IS STICKING STRAIGHT UP IN THE AIR. REMOVE DOOR AND BELT DOOR. CUT OLD BELT IF IT IS NOT BROKEN. TUCK NEW BELT UNDER BRUHROLL PULLEY FIRST THEN STRECH OVER MOTOR SHAFT.
DO NOT REPLACE BELT BY REMOVING BASEPLATE. 1) THE MOTOR IS NOT STABLE ENOUGH FOR THE TIGHT BELTS WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF THE MOTOR 2) REPLACING BASEPLATE IMPOPERLY MAKES VACUUMING DIFFICULT. ">
Take the bottom off as if to change the belt and remove the brush assembly from the VAC. Take the ends off the roller and clean out the string and hair and whatever is wrapped around the end bushings and reinstall. Should free-up the roller Brush and stop the resistance on the belt to motor shaft. Or your belt is streched out and should be replaced, they don't always have to Break to be bad.
Hi, I see your post is from May. I just joined Fixya this month so, id you're still looking for a solution, I would saythe belt broken or is so stretched the roller isn't spinning. Here is an link to an online guide with illustrations for changing belt. Also check the roller brushes for wear and change if necessary. Hope this helps.
http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=0&thid=747767 Generic problem for all Vacuums ORECK VACCUM Posted by FISHERMAN928 on Jul 06, 2008 Older Oreck XL, new belt, new bag, checked for clogs, does not pick up as it used to, and, much harder to push, seems to grab or drag, why???? Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. There are a couple of things that may work. Depending on if you have the old style brushroll you can upgrade to a new style Oreck brushroll that has twice the brushes and will a work a lot smoother. Also, clean the bottom plate – get rid of any dust and dirt build up and then spray the bottom with silicone and let it dry after you have totally cleaned it. Always use Oreck genuine belts and to change the belt every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning and store the extra Oreck belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator, other wise if you have a new belt, gag, you have checked for clogs there is no reason why it should be hard to push, if the silicone does not work replace the bottom plate. http://www.oreck.com/Customer Service1-800-989-3535 Monday thru Friday Hours are: 7:00 am to 7:00 pm CST Saturday and Sunday Hours Are; 8:00 am to 4:30 pm CST Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.

http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=19810&thid=703827 Oreck XL Classic posted by balis on Jun 24, 2008 The belt is on properly, however the brush will spin, then stop. Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Oreck XL Classic.It sounds like the belt may be stretched out and my needs replacing. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months and to store the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. Also check the brushroll, the gray bearing ends with say on either side the words NEW or OLD and both ends need to be identical – new/new and old/old NOT new/old, if the belt and the brushroll are OK then it may be the motor but I don’t think so. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. http://www.oreck.com/Customer Service1-800-989-3535 Monday thru Friday Hours are: 7:00 am to 7:00 pm CST Saturday and Sunday Hours Are; 8:00 am to 4:30 pm CST Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.

If the pulley on the brush roll is worn, then I would replace the brushroll. Look at the ends where the brush roll sits in to make sure the casing hasn't over heated and not holding the brush in place. Also make sure the motor is shifting and causing the belt to come off. Another is if you are catching a rug or towel, that also will cause the belt to come off. I am assuming you using a new belt and not a worn one. After only a short time, belts stretch and need to be replaced.
