I was attempting to vacuum and it just smelled like the belt was burning. The only solution is to take it apart and remove the hair that is preventing it from freely moving. I’m not sure how many times I’ve taken our Oreck XL apart to clean it. Occasionally replacing parts. First, start with getting to the parts.
And I know I’m getting old, cause I have to remove my glasses to see things up close.
Eventually I was able to pop the end off the bar and remove the hair. I even put it back together and it worked like new. Ohh, now it means I have to go and clean 🙁
