Having problems with your Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

I am trying to replace the power cord for my 82 year old father-in-law's Oreck XL 2600HH. He already took it apart. I need to know where the semi U shaped spring steel piece is supposed to go inside the Helping Hand Handle? Any drawings or schematics available? Thank you for your time. Arthur


Answers :

That justs lies on the inner handle whenb you put the spring back. There should be two holds where each end of the spring sits in.
First off, it's name/purpose is a "Static Wire", for static electricity.
In the right handle half (as the vacuum is facing away from you) is a boss with a hole, forward of the hand cut-out.
The bent end goes into this hole.
There is a groove in the underside of the upper part of the hand cut-out that this routes along.
The other end goes down into the metal shaft that the handle attaches to.
The Static Wire is exposed in the upper part of the hand cut-out, so the hand touches it, to prevent static shock.
Here is a picture showing assembled handle:

You can see the Static Wire running along the upper edge of the hand cut-out of the handle (toward your left as looking at picture)

Hoover SteamVac Is there a spring in the trigger. The valve was is two pieces and we glued it together and it still won't retract. Is it possible there was a spring in the trigger that got lost or do I need a new valve? redevil16 helped me last time. Hopefully he or someone can help. Thanks, Sandy

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind model #uh71009. We moved recently and it was jostled around and the red power switch popped out. I put it back in but it's stuck; it stays either left or right, it doesnt move back and forth. It appears there may be another piece missing from the power switch...all I have is the red switch and a tiny cylindrical metal tube with a spring on one end. This piece fits into the hole on the red switch. Inside the vacuum itself where this goes, there is quite a large cavity

Also it is making a big puddle on the floor, probably because the brushes on the main unit keep spinning when I am trying to use the hand tool which I dont think they are supposed to do? Can a

Last night as I was vacuuming, I noticed that the belt stop indicator light was on. I pulled out the hair that had gotten tangled around the brush in hopes of solving the problem.

I removed hair from the end piece of the brush roller and reattached the belt; however, I cannot figure out where the microchip is supposed to go so that I can reassemble the base piece by screwing it back together.
