Having problems with your Oreck Vacuums ?

My oreck xl 3800 H2 upright vacuum cleaner does not turn on. It worked fine the last time I used it. Is there some sort of fuse that may have burned out?

Answers :

Usually no fuse on these.
\015\012Assume the outlet has been checked?
\015\012I'd look at the on/off switch (that is a 2 speed unit, tight?) or the diode the gives the 2-speed choice, or the power cord as my first culprits.

Kenmore Elite 721.66463500 Microwave died. Didn't even notice until I went to use it. Changed fuse and screen asked to enter the time of day. Entered the time and hit start. The microwave buzzed for 0.5sec and it blew the new fuse I installed.. put in another fuse and the same thing happened.. I measured the resistance in the noise filter. Results: L1-L2 < 1ohm N1-N2 < 1ohm L1 or L2 - N1 or N2 = 0ohms I'm thinking I need a new filter but I also was unable to measure any resistance o

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing

I was cleaning my carpet using my hoover steamvac ls. I had already changed the water 3 times. The last time, the water ran out and I kept running it for a couple of minutes trying to **** up some of the water off the carpet when it just shut down. I check the breaker and the outlet and they were OK. Checked my manual for troubleshooting; couldn't find an answer there. Do you think I burned the motor up (I didn't smell anything) or will I have to send it in for repair? When I clicked on your web

The problem is that the cleaner is heavy to use and does not pull itself forward as it should. It has been back to the supplier 3 times but they have not fixed the problem. The LED's on the front flicker and I think it may be a problem with the sensor. If you have any info. on how the sensor works and where it is located it would be useful as well as any other suggestions to fix the problem please.

If it heavy then do some muscle work and body building ... Vacuums

The electronics in my Sunbeam TA200A Toaster is playing up. The Toaster is sometime popping the toast up after the right amount of time, but sometimes it pops up a minute later than it should (burning the toast) I have open up the control panel buttons and inspected the array of transistors and resistors that is used for the timing mechanism and a visual inspection doesn't indicate a problem. I am keen to replace the 2 transistors on the control unit (the resistors are unlikely to fail) but I ne

No action Hi: My brush roll won't budge. After we cleaned out all the hoses and replaced a badly worn belt (burned?) when I turn it on the smell of burning rubber and smoke has continued.

Sounds like your motor bearings are going bad. This is generally indicated by the motor overheating, and the heat transferring out through the motor pulley, which is where the belt attaches.
