Question about Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum
Sears Kenmore vacuum
Power mate attachment
Height adjustment doesn't work. Stays in one position.
SOURCE: Sebo X1 vacuum not working
The X1 has a servo motor with gear box, this is what adjusts for height. Either something has jammed it, or
it has gone bad. You would probably be looking at a $80 to $100 repair, that is if the servo is bad. There also is a computer controller circuit board which could be the problem.

Remove the nozzle and remove the front wheel shaft. Take these 2 screws out.
When doing so - watch for the spring that is under the top pedal, do not let it fly out of window. If you will find that shaft is bent buy and install a new shaft (you can find all parts HERE). You may try to straighten it but usually it doe not last long - wheel ***** falls off and you have to buy new shaft anyway. If shaft seems to be ok - clean old grease and dirt, lubricate well the pedal teeth and assemble everything back. This should solve the problem. Occasionally spring may be broken but this happens very rarely.

Hello. The height of the wheels Will stay in the highest position until you release the handle release lever. At that time the adjustment will happen. I hope this helps. let me know.

Make sure you're not trying to adjust w/ handle in upright locked position because thewre is a cam which raises the vacuum head a little bit when handle is locked in upright position. If this is not the problem, turn vacuum upside down with handle in unlocked position and power cord not plugged in(for safety reasons obviously), unscrew and remove 3 screws that hold belt/beater brush assembly cover in place(2 are in corner near ends of beater brush and 1 is towards motor housing) tilt end of cover with 1 screw up and remove cover(there are 2 tabs at beater brush end of cover). Right above this is the height adjustment assembly with 2 rollers, raise up the assembly gently and using your finger or a bristle bottle brush,etc. make sure there is no debris caught between the height assembly and the hose(you will understand when you see it), if there is no debris you can now see the pattern on the bottom of the height adjustment knob and the lobe that rides on it, just check to make sure nothing is broken and/or missing, hope this helps!!
