Having problems with your Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Oreck XL Roller-Disassembly

\015 Thank you so much for your kindness. If I attempt this would I try and unthread it? If so, clockwise or CCW? Also, any recomendations on what to use to pry the end off? I'm afraid I'll break the plastic ends if use force on them.\015\012\015\012I do thnk this is a replacement that I got from eBay. I've had to replace too many of these damn things because of the same reasons. I've never had roller get to the stage where it wore out.\015

Answers :

I always get confused, but I think it is clock wise. Stick a small blade screw driver under the end cap and pry out, it should pop off, it covers a bearing. That is the problem with the Oreck brush rolls, the ends go bad long before the bristles get worn down.

I am having problems with the roller on my Oreck DTX-1300. It turns on and off intermittantly while I'm vacuuming. I have completly taken it apart and cleaned and inspected the roller unit.(I am very much mechanically inclined) This has stumped me, I have checked the electrical from the vacuum to the floor unit, and everything else that I could think of. Question: what does the metal sensore plate on the bottom of the roller unit do?? Anything anybody can tell me, I would greatly appreciate. Cap

We have a new hoover bagless that is a couple months old. The pet hair attachment stopped working. I disassembled it found lots of hair wound around the various rollers and removed - painstakingly thorough i might add. Problem is the brush still wont spin and now the belt seems loose - I think I put it all back together correctly but wondering if there is a trick to this?


Without the model number, I can't look it up, but this has a 1 years warranty on it, maybe take it to a warranty shop. Just take proof of purchase, model and serial numbers. ... Vacuums

My hoover upright u8172-900. The unit provides suction, but roller does not turn. I can hear the motor click on when it is supposed to. I took the cover off, and found no belt. Does this one operate without a belt, or is it possible the belt was totally obliterated? I saw no place to connect a belt, but I didn't want to do too much disassembly at this time.

My Oreck XL was working fine, then when I vacuumed a shag rug is started smoking and smelled like something is burning. (I changed the bag, checked for clogs--none found, and roller brush is turning. It has a metal handle.) Now I am afraid to use it.


Even though the brush is spinning, the belt is probably worn out and stretched. when you vacuum the shag carpet, it puts more drag on the brush. try running it on a shorter carpet or hard floor for a few minutes. if it doesn't smoke, then you know i ... Oreck XL2000 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have an older Oreck XL vacuum that sounds like it is running twice as fast as it should. I disassembled the entire vacuum, including disconnecting the motor wires, to clean out the hair, string, and other things. When I put everything back and connected all the wires, everything appears to work, including the light. The only problem is, it sounds extremely loud like the motor is running too fast.
