Question about Oreck XL2600 Vacuum

1 Answer

Local vacuum repair shop replaced motor in Oreck XL 2600HH and now the lights blow out immediately upon powering up the machine. I believe the wires for the lights were mis-wired to the terminal blades on the motor housing. is there a wiring diagram available to properly connect the wires to the motor housing?

    Thanks for your response... I don't think this repair shop is familiar with the Oreck machine. Repair manuals for the machine cannot be found. I pulled the bottom plate off and used my knowledge of electronic repair and some intuitive thinking about different connectors and their applications. Long story short, I repaired the lighting problem myself.

Hello. if this repair just occurred return this vacuum to that repair shop as they owe you a valid repair. I agree that they caused the lights blowing out problem. They must repair this for no charge. If you work on it yourself they will blame you. Joe

Ametek wiring diagram for a Oreck XL21 600 ECB


I cannot find a wiring diagram from where I am located right now, but I do know that the black wire coming from the power cord goes to the top side of the motor when you have it laying upside down with the cover off, and it will go to the tab towards the back of the vacuum. Sometimes they put a black dot beside the tab and if that is there you put your wires from the power cord on those. You will also have two wires coming from your light bar in front and the white wire will usually have a piggy-back terminal that your white wire from the power cord attaches to as well. If there are no black dots beside the terminal tabs the white wires will connect to the bottom terminal on the opposite side from the black power cord wire. It will usually be on the lower side of the motor as well. The black wire from the light bar will go on the remaining terminal tab as there is usually only three tabs on the motor. I will check back later this week to see if this has helped you and if not I should be able to get a diagram this weekend.

Need wiring schematic for ametek 119550


I had the same problem after not paying attention to the connections when replacing my motor. I spent days searching for information and only found several non-answers with small photos that no one can read.I contacted Oreck for wiring information. They explicitly stated that they can't provide any wiring information for safety and liability reasons.

I found the Ametek schematic which shows the LINE and TAP locations on the motor.

Note: I have a 2600HH XL with 2 headlights.

Connect as follows:

3A, LINE: White lead w/piggy back terminal from light harness #1 & white lead from the power harness to the piggy back terminal
2A, TAP: Black lead from light harness #1
3B, LINE: White lead w/piggy back terminal from light harness #2 & black lead from the power harness
2B, TAP: Black lead from light harness #2

Has power but won't turn on


sounds like either a bad switch,bad wire or a bad motor -- use a volt meter to trace power out to find what is at fault.
if it turns out to be a bad motor or switch -- you can get the replacement parts at your local vacuum repair shop.

I had a loose wire in my Oreck XL motor. I took it


Lights are 12 volts.

The motor has taps on it to pull 12 volts rather than 120 volts for the lights, uses the motor as a transformer.

Should be black and white to the motor from the switch, believe the switch breaks the black wire. White wire should be neutral. I can't remember colors for the wires to the lights. Would expect it to be the white wire and then the "tap" wire to be red.

One crazy way to do it, is to hook up wires, leave the light bulbs out, turn on power, and check voltage at the bulb socket with a voltmeter. (This is one of those things they tell you on television to only let a professional do, do not attempt at home.)

My upright Oreck Vacuume XL 2


the main tube is clogged.
unplug it, open bag area, remove bag look for clog.
if clear, take off lower coller, pull up tube, remove blockage, either in tube or fan area.
if clear, look in bottom by intake area for blockage.
fan can not run backwards.
good luck.
