Question about Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Oreck XL2 Ultra

Any suggestions as to why this vacuum will not turn on? The switch doesn't seem loose and the cord seems to be connected where it should be. I have tried different outlets in my home. I believe this vacuum is about 5 years old. Thanks.

    My oreck would not turn on. I took the handle apart so I could get to the switch. I noticed there was a wire connector off, I re connected the wire and the vacume turned on with no problem. Good as new!!

I was vacuuming and the vacuum just stopped running. The cord is fairly new so I know it isn't that. Any suggestions?


Sometimes when the small pipe from the motor fan gets plugged up the motor will overheat. For safety reasons, the motor shuts off. If you able to start up the vacuum later, and the suction is not great, then follow the owner's manual to unplug the hose. It is not difficult, but it does require disassembly of the sweeper part of the vacuum. Make sure that you unplug the machine before you try to make any repairs. I have had to do this myself on occasion when the vac seemed to lose suction power. Another problem might be that you vacuum bag might be too full.

Since you mentioned that the cord is fairly new, I will make the assumption that you replaced the cord. If that is the case, then make sure the cord is unplugged from the wall, and check the connections of the cord to the vacuum. One of the wires might not have been attached properly and worked it was loose. This can happen especially if you pull hard of the cord when vacuuming. Oreck's come with a fairly long cord, but you still have to plug into a socket when you run out of cord.

If either of those suggestions does not work, then I recommend a service call to a local repair center.

Simply won't turn on!


I believe all Oreck vacuums have a lifetime warranty. You should pursue that.

I shut my vacume off to change its bag out. Now it won't come on. Oreck xl2. There were no noises before turning it off or any smells of rubber burning. Just won't come back on. Is there a reset button....


An access panel mounted atop a vacuum nozzle base via finger operated latches. When the latches are undone the access panel is removed from the top surface of the nozzle base allowing access to the parts of the brush assembly. The panel also has an integral arm which engages a safety motor switch such that when the panel is removed the motor switch is switched into an open circuit position preventing the motor from continued operation
