Having problems with your Oreck XL® Classic Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

My Oreck Upright will not stay upright! The handle falls over everytime I leave it stand on its own.

\015 Apparently there is comething in the base plate that is suppose to hold the handle in a locked position so that it will stand up on its own (iot used to) but not it doesn't and I can't find out anything about it on the parts list or diagrams\015

Answers :

What you are in need of is what they call a detent. There is a possibility that is has broken off from the housing which means that the only way to repair it properly is to replace the entire housing. It may have just had the screw come loose and has fallen off and just needs to be re-attached and possibly needs a larger screw if the hole is stripped. You will need to take the bottom plate off and remove the screws holding the motor and the right angled air tube and then remove both of those so that you can see where the detent is supposed to be located. When removing the motor, be sure you mark where the wires are attached on the motor so that you wire it back up properly. Hope this helps!
