Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I replaced the motor in my Oreck vacuum and it runs much faster than it used to and is very noisy. The wiring diagram that I received with the motor was very hard to read so I don't know if I wired it correctly. I also was not able to hook up the dual head lamps. Thanks, Bob

Usually when you replace motors especially with bigger ones or near models they are bound to be faster as this usually is the main reason for the replacement and faster always comes with more noise. As long as the motor works well inside the unit and the controls support it the wiring work has been properly done. When the wiring is not done properly then the motor would not start or there would have been some control malfunction immediately it has been fitted.
Dual head lamps usually are not an integral part of the vacuum as they are put there for night vacuuming and a bit of fancy as almost no one vacuums in the dark. Although some engines dont come with headlamp provisions so this could also be the case.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

The brush wouldn't work when the selector switch was in carpet mode. Took the power head apart and removed the motor. Everything o.k. in the power head. Checked and found that the neutural wire had pulled out of the connector, the connector was never crimped at the factory. What a day! Took 2 hours and a large pizza to get it done. Neutral wire was in the hose just below the handle. Reconnected the wire and crimped it, put everything back together. It works!!!!
