Take it to your local vac shop for repair. Switches are not that expensive.

Red on the left.

White in the middle.

Black on the right.

Green on the case/chassis ground or green screw with the small dashes on it.


If you don't have a white wire but the the green in the middle position.

White/red = far left
Green = middle
Black = right

First and foremost, you need to check the Motor's voltage requirements, and match it to the voltage of the GFI you have connected to the House current.

The best way to do this is to use a volt meter at the GFI receptacle. Although it's likely the voltage at your GFI receptacle is 120Volts AC, you shouldn't guess on this. If you know what circuit breaker this GFI is using to get power.... you may be able to determine the GFI's voltage if you know how to distinquish between a single pole breaker and a two pole breaker (120Volts is derived from a sigle pole breaker, 240volts from a two pole breaker-which is twice the size of a single pole breaker).

Now the Motor: Most common Pool Motors are dual winding motors, on which, the voltage requirement could be changed to match the voltage supplied. On such a motor, there's a compartment where the cord is attached. Within this compartment, there's a configuration of screws or terminal points, and a related schematic which depicts the proper connections for each of the voltage options. By following these schematics, you will know how to connect the motor based on the available voltage supplied by your GFI protected receptacle.

You have a two-speed as indicated by the red jumper wire and brown wire left out for connection. These two wires connect to the speed switch with the red jumper to low speed and the brown wire to high speed. The black electrical cord wire connects to the L or COM terminal of the speed switch. The diagram below should give you better understanding on how the motor and the speed switch is wired.

The L/COM terminal makes contact with terminal 1 for low speed and terminal 2 for high speed. The OFF (0) is not shown.

Please accept the solution should you find it helpful and/or informative. Accepting the solution will not stop you from posting comments or additional information. You can still communicate with the expert should you need further advice regarding the issue stated herein.

HOW DO I HOOK UP THE WIRES TO THE MOTOR I FORGOT


You should only have 4 wires to hook up to an Oreck motor. The black wire from the cord coming into the back of the motor housing will be attached to the closest lead when the motor is in it's normal position. Most of the time there will be a black dot next to the terminal. On the other side of the motor you should have two white wires that should be connected together, one from the same cord just mentioned and the other one coming from your lights. Those two wires should also be connected to the motor where there is a black dot beside the terminal. Your last black wire coming from the lights should go to the terminal next to where the white wires are connected or to another terminal that is on that side of the motor. Hope this helps!

How do I wire an oreck xl9100 motor


The black wire coming from the power cord will go onto the terminal closest to where the cord goes into the vacuum. Sometimes there is a black dot next to the terminal. The white wire from the cord will attach to a piggy-back terminal on the white wire coming from the lights and will attach to the motor on the other side of the motor from where the black wire attached. There may also be a black dot beside that terminal as well. The black wire from the lights will attach to a terminal on the side where you attach the white wires, either right next to them or above them on the same side of the motor. Hope this helps you.

How do i reattach wires to motor from cord and lights


Black wire from the power cord goes onto the wire connection closest to where it comes into the back of the vacuum. There should be a black dot beside the wire connection on the motor. On the other side of the motor, there should be another black dot beside a wire connection and the two white wires will go there. The white wire coming from the lights usually has a double connection and it will go on first and then the white wire from the power cord will go onto the other side of the double connector. The black wire coming from the light usually will go to a wire connector right next to the white wires or just above it . Hope this helps!

I need a good wiring diagram for my Oreck xl vac


Chuck,
I do not have a diagram for you but I can tell you how they normally are hooked up. When you have the motor sitting in it's normal position the black wire from the power cord will attach to the terminal closest to where the cord comes in. There should also be a black dot next to the terminal. The two white wires will connect together and they will go on a terminal on the other side of the motor that also has a black dot next to it. The remaining black wire should connect to a terminal next to the white wires or at least on the same side of the motor as the white wires. Hope this helps you.

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.

Replaced Oreck power switch. 2 black leads and 1 white lead for switch. Posts marked 1, 2, and 3. 2 black wires to switch powers on. Connect white wire and breaker trips. Where does the white wire go?


Both black go to the switch. Power in - black to switch / white to white from motor.
From motor - black to switch / white to white from power cord
The black wire from the power hooks to the off end of the switch and the black wire from the motor hooks to the on end. Third post is not used. The two white wires are connected to each other with a small twist on wire nut.

I have not seen the new two speed but sounds like the wiring is coded to teh switch by colorOn a single speed it would be this way.

Power cord to side 1 of switch.
Switch to motor 1 and PN receptacle 1, etc
Then cord to remaining motor 2 and PN 2 so by color should be accurate.
Note PN receptacle should likely be powered at both speeds....it is on other vacs

I have the same vacuum at home and can take a picture, but I believe it is wired in this order. Hot wire (black) from cord goes to the switch then the switch to the fuse, then the fuse to the cable that goes down to the light and motor. The neutral (white) wire from the cord is connected to the neutral (black with white stripe) side of the wire going to the motor and light.
