Thanks. Too bad it's not the same model as mine. The Oreck site was no help. Apparently they don't like to accommodate DIY people. I guess my only option now is to take off the roller brush and make sure there is nothing wrapped around the end
I did remove the brush roller and found that there was nothing wound around it. The design is greatly improved and there is no way anything could get in there without being able to see it just by simply turning the head upside down.
My machine is working fine now with a bit of cleaning out under the cover, but I'm sure the new belt made the biggest difference!
Never heard of SEBO. Where to buy? I'll look up on a search. Thanks for your help.
