Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Oreck XL Vacuum

\015 I had to pull the motor to my Oreck XL and when I put it all back together the light bulbs blew. Can anyone help me understand if these bulbs are 120V and if not how do you hook them up to get 12 volts. Have new bulbs from Oreck that appear to be 12V. I can't find a wiring diagram?\015

Answers :

If you can find a Kirby G series vacuum lightbulb, it will work in the Oreck too!! Many sellers carry them online.
