Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Oreck fan is generally held on by a nut on the end of the motor and is replaceable, and it usually slides on but over the years it tends to stick on the shaft so you can take like 2 screwdrivers – one on each side and try to lift gently and the fan should come off, if not try some WD-40, and look on the inside of the new fan to see if there are threads that might screw on, if not then it should just side on, make sure if you use WD-40 to wipe off any excess liquid. Check you owner’s guide in the back pocket of the Oreck XL9300 to see any instructions that they might have, or call the Oreck factory to get a new owner’s manual for the 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.

Need to wire motor for oreck xl upright


Your new motor should be very similar to the old motor. Compare the two motors to see if you can determine where each wire on the old motor should go on the new motor. If you are not sure it may save you money to have it wired by a qualified repair person. If you hook it up wrong it may damage the new motor and/or other electric components of your vacuum.

It should. You can call Oreck and talk with them and give them the serial number off your vacuum and they can look it up and tell you for sure if it will fit or not.

Oreck xl 9100 how to replace the fan


Hi,
I just replaced the fan (plastic) on an XL9100. I assume you got the bottom plate off (5 screws).

Undo the single screw holding the suction housing in place.

Remove the two screws holding the motor in place and gently lift the assemble up, being careful not to stress the wires. The motor and fan assembly should now be exposed. If the nut holdling fan in place is removed, the whole fan should slide right off. If it does not, try a little WD-40 on the shaft and wiggle and move from side to side. (I slipped a small drill bit between the motor fan (motor cooling fan) to prevent the shaft from turning when you remove the nut.) Be sure you turn the nut counter-clockwise to remove it.

You should now have the fan off. Reverse the procedure to place the new fan - following the directions carefully as some assemblies need a washer and "feathered" washer on the top.

Assuming everything went well, it should work.

My 9100 sucked a magnetic bearing and trashed the metal fan to where suction was weak. The new fan works great.

Cheers

orecks have a plastic fan inside and everything you pick up hits it, sometimes things can get stuck in there or break the fan locking up the motor. With the machine off, poke around where the dirt goes into the motor, behind the roller and see if you can pull anything out.

FAN


Take off the bottom plate, remove the screws for the motor and fan chamber, remove motor from fan housing, remove the nut for the fan. You may have to lock down the armature if the nut is too tight. Replace fan and reinstall motor into the fan housing and reinstall.

Sounds like the motor, fan chamber and the end cover for the fan chamber is not all of the way in place. They have to be on right on top of the scew posts.

Oreck Vacuum troubleshooting


Hi. If the motor is on its way out the motor noise will be eratic eg slowing down speeding up popping noise & a smell of electrical burning. If you have none of these symptoms then chances are its not the motor. Does the bag inflate or is it easy to collapse when you push the bag ? If bag inflates ok check belt. If bag not fully inflating check for blockages along length of the handle pipe its designed to pull apart by lifting up rubber sleeve at machine end of pipe, push ball latch in & pull pipe out remove any debris stuck in the pipe. Remove bbottom of machine as if replacing belt check to see if there is any debris stuck in the oppening that goes to motor fan, then check the fan blades you can see them through the port is there any missing or snapped off. If blades are missing or have big chunks missing you will need to replace. If fan only has minor bits missing then reassemble it should now worl well.
