Bought a new motor but can’t figure how to pull off the metal fan from the old motor. Is it muscle or a trick?

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.

I need a diagram to show me where and how to install the front belt< I think the motor belt) on my Hoover Windtunnel, self propelled Model U6634-900 series x12-0 60HZ 120 V


Most vacuums are pretty well the same belt set-up...remove the metal plate covering the rotating floor brush and pull it out...place new belt over motor pulley and and stretch other end over rotating floor brush in the space provided for it....pull and place ends into slots on the sides....if the belt is not straight flip the brush the other way...you will figure it out. Just be sure to buy the right belt!!!

Regards,
Dennis

I have a new brush to install but cant figure how to remove old, what is the trick?


On most vaccuums, there should be a single panel going across one side of the brush wheel. If not, the entire panel should come off. In 90% of cases, this will basically allow the brush wheel to fall free, and the new one to be slotted into the old slot. Ensure the belt is connected, and reattach the panel.

Vacuum has become very loud screaching sound


Yes, I would say the crack is causing the screaming sound.

Usually the fan (impeller) is held on with a left-hand nut. To remove it, you have to hold the motor somewhere (sometimes you can just hold the impeller), put a wrench on the shaft nut and turn it clockwise. The impeller should then just pull off (with possibly some wd-40 and a little muscle).

MY VACUUM IS NOT PICKING UP


Hi This is quite complicated but I'll try and simplify this for you:
If this is a Panasonic upright then there are two drive belts as you know. Once you take off the sole plate (where the beater bar is) by undoing screws and the beater bar is looking at you, you would have to take off the smaller belt motor pulley first before putting on a new larger drive belt. If the smaller belt is still intact and you only need to replace the larger belt, you'll still have to take off both belts to put on the new drive belt.
Motor pulley belt has to be taken off first then the old drive belt, then grasp the beater and slide on new larger drive belt before having to attach the motor pulley belt and then the larger belt onto the motor pulley. Once all belts have been attached ensure that the beater bar is pushed in correctly before you screw the sole plate back on.

I am taking the old motor out of my Rainbow SE


Switch is not serviceable.
I think you are talking about old model switch (originally installed in your Rainbow) To remove 6 wires from the switch - push a pin where the wires go into the switch. It will release wires so you can pull them out. Make sure to draw a diagram how to connect them back.

If you need a new switch - go here

Central vac toast?


Most of these motors, the fan cover is just pressed on, but getting off isn't easy and you don't want to bent it up. Maybe using a flatblade try to knock it off from the edge of it may loosen it enough to pull it off.
