Having problems with your Oreck XL2200 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Roller on upright vacuum is not spinning so vacuum is not picking up dirt


Answers :

Hello,

Any time that a vacuum's roller brush stops spinning, this means that your belt has either stretched so much that it's fallen off of the motor, or that your belt has broken.

Here's a very helpful video on how you can replace the belt on your Oreck. This will give you step by step instructions on the belt change.

If you need to purchase a new belt, here's a direct link to a 3 pk. of belts that are used on your Oreck XL upright on our website:
