Question about Oreck XL2200 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Motor and Lights stopped suddenly after vacuuming the stairs.

I was vacuuming the stairs, and all of a sudden the light went out and the motor stopped. Is it possible to overheat it, or blow a fuse?

    I did call Orek customer service. I was hoping they could walk me thru a procedure, but all they really did was tell me the closest Oreck dealer.

    It turns out there was a vacuum repair dealer less than a mile from my house. He took a look at the machine, and then said that we had knocked a wire loose inside when we were trouble shooting it. Good as new!

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Oreck XL2200 Bagged Upright Vacuum. It sounds to me that when the lights go out and it stops working that the motor is bad that you would have to replace the motor. It is still cheaper to replace the motor than to purchase a new vacuum. 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.

It was working fine and then all of a sudden stopped. The power switch still lights up but the motor doesn't run. What could be wrong?

you didn't state your model so I can't be specific to your model. It could be a loose wire, reset switch, bad motor, worn motor brushes, fuse, switch, etc.
You'll have to check to insure power is making it to the motor and if so why the motor isn't running.

I was vacuuming with my DC28 Animal and all fo a sudden the beater bar stopped working and NONE of the floor mode buttons work.. no lights or anyhting. I checked for obstructions per the Dyson manua

Check the wire connection that feeds that section. to make sure it is being supplied power. Since motor is also not working it has to be something they all have in common -POWER!

It suddenly stop working but the light is still on. my vac. model is 116.30201500c, serial no. M51801511

The fuse is blown. It's located near the motor. One side of the fuse goes to the on/off swith and the other end to the motor.

My motor stop all of a sudden. What is wrong with it?

The motor brushes are worn out...shorting the motor, hence it will not start. The part is only 75¢ - unfortunately it'll cost you around $45 to have it fixed...just look for a local Panasonic or Sharp dealer. Good Luck!

Vacuum won't turn on

there is an overheat stat which turns motor off. possible cause is filters blocked or a blockage elsewhere - no air flow and the motor overheats
