Having problems with your Oreck XL2000 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

My Oreck Vacuum cleaner keeps burning up belts. I

\015 My Oreck Vacuum cleaner keeps burning up belts. I have cleaned the bar very well when I replaced the belt. When I spin the bar with my finger before the belt is attached is still has some resistance. Is there a lubracation that I should use? the bar is wooden the the part it spins against is plastic. \015\012The vacuum is actually an oreck xl extended life model xl9000w. The site would not let me post unless I picked a model from its list. \015\012\015\012Thanks\015

Ours is doing the same, burning smell and chewed up belts. Not happy customer.
I am having the same trouble. I bought the vacuum new in October 2007 when my wife and I purchased a newly constructed home. Since it is only two of us, she only has to vacuum once a month. I have taken it in three different times and get the same story. It needed a new belt. Mine has white smoke coming out of it and smells like burning rubber. I contacted Oreck and got no results. They refused to let me discuss this with Dave Oreck, stating that he nevers talks with customers! Gary Neeble

I feel like I got the old run-around, when the service tech told me he couldn't find anything wrong (but replaced the burned up belt

My hoover Wind Tunnel vacuum cleaner's motor spindle keeps overheating. Because of the high temperature, it keeps burning through belts (the big, wide ones). I have taken it in to the vacuum repair shop about three times now, and the problem has never been fixed. Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this or should I just buy a new vacuum?

Changed the motor carbon brushes on my Beam central vacuum cleaner equiped with an IntelliWatch system. This system includes the Alutron DB100 module. This Alutron module needs to be reset so that the vacuum cleaner can operate properly. I believe that this module keeps log of running time and disables operation after a predetermined time. Can you help me with providing a reset procedure that will reset this module. Thanks

I have a Zanussi 1700W bagless upright vacuum cleaner which keeps cutting out after about 5/10 mins use. I had to replace the rubber drive belt which snapped not long after purchasing and it was fine for a while, but now its just keeps cutting out after a small amount of use. Nothing wrong with belt which is still intact so we don't know what the problem is. It's a great cleaner otherwise - but it's driving us mad!! Please help!
