Question about Oreck XL2200 Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

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?

Thanks,
Brigham

    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!

Hello,
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.

I have a Hoover wind tunnel that suddenly stopped working when the cannister got full. Once emptied still would not start. Anything to fix this? Does it have an automatic shut off when full?


If the airflow is restricted the motor will overheat. Most vacuums have a thermal heat sensor built into the motor which will shut the motor off until it cools down.

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.

My Miele Hepa 5281 stopped working for no apparent reason. No burning smell etc. I've replaced the fuse on the plug but it's still not working. Any suggestions on what could be wrong a


Could be a break in the mains lead. Usually where it enters the machine and gets stressed. Some motors have a thermal cut out or thermal fuse fitted to them. If the motor overheats it breaks the circuit. Some of them reset when they cool down, some are a one shot device, when it blows it has to be replaced. Could also be faulty brushes on the motor not making proper contact because the are sticking or worn.

What else can I do to fix my Bissell Clear View ii ? I bought it used and it worked fine until I used it to clean my stairs , when I finished the stairs I turned it off and now it won't turn back on .


more than likely the thermal cut out has cut in has it may have overheated.The only way to clear this is to get the motor out and clean it out thoroughly.You will find fluff in there which causes the motor to overheat.

Shop vac stopped working


Motors have a thermal safety fuse in the field winding. If it overheats, it will blow and either can be replaced or the whole field winding will have to be replaced. It is wired and is not considered to be a user servicable item.

There is a hidden thermo fuse in the tape on one of the field windings. If it overheats that fuse will blow and the motor won't run until replaced.

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.
