Oreck Complaint - Alas! Poor Oreck! - Oreck XL Vacuum
After only 2 years of moderate use (once weekly - 2 room size area rugs) my Oreck XL with its very noisy but powerful engine began to smell like burning rubber and exude dark smoke from its motor case. It sits outside waiting for trash pickup. Never again Oreck!
I think Oreck is like so many products these days that still carry a trusted name but are really junk due to cheap manufacturing.
