Question about Sebo Air Belt C2.1 Bagged Canister Vacuum
I was given a Sebo air belt C2 on the basis that the owner had taken off the plug and then cleverly pressed the power cord button so it has disappeared inside the machine. I don't have a manual so not sure how to disassemble it as seems to be required - I can't see the power lead/cord so can't get it with a needle nose plier which was my preferred solution.

The full bag light comes on when it is getting full or a blockage in the hose or the dirt inlet by the brush roll. Other then that, there is a circuit board called the computer controller, part #5740ER and is giving you a false reading and causing a shut down.

Thanks to its automatic height-adjust feature, the Sebo X4 has two drive belts, one from the motor to the height-adjust sensor, and another from that sensor to the brush roller. To access them,first remove the base from the handle, undo the four recessed screws on the underside of the base, then turn it over and lift off the cover. You will then see the belts. The rest should be obvious (it's a while since I've done one of these, but I think you may have to loosen the screws holding the height-adjust sensor before you can slip the belt off).
I hope this helps. Any further problem, just re-post here and I'll do my best. Good luck!

If you are sure the base is clear, and that the flexible hose and attachment tube are clear, the only other common place for a blockage is the swivel neck that joins the base to the bottom of the dust bag housing. Here's what to do:
Press the housing release button (front bottom of bag housing) and lift off the bag housing from the base. This can be quite hard (three or four hands would be helpful) but be sure to lift straight. When you've got the bag housing off, release the foot pedal and lower the swivel neck to 45 degrees. Check inside the swivel neck channel closest to the foot pedal, and clean it out as necessary.
If this doesn't work, please post again and I'll see what else I can do... If it does help, please rate me!

OK, here goes... (there may be more detail here than you need, but it's a copy of a solution I wrote for someone else) NOTE - any use of the words LEFT and RIGHT assume that you are looking from the REAR of the machine.
NOTE ALSO - the machine has two toothed belts, it makes sense to change both while you're at it.
STEP 1. Separate the base from the bag compartment: press the button at bottom front centre of bag compartment and lift bag compartment upwards away from base. Sometimes this is quite stiff and four hands would be useful, you can lever it from behind with something relatively soft (the plastic handle of a dishwash brush works well) but take care to lift vertically upwards, not sideways or you risk bending a metal lever that's hard to get back into shape again. Rest assured that once you've pressed that button there is nothing holding the two parts together other than friction!
STEP 2. Turn the base upside-down and undo the FOUR DEEPLY-RECESSED SCREWS. All the surface-mounted screws are irrelevant to this job.
STEP 3. Turn the complete base right-way up, release the foot pedal and move the vacuum tubes out of vertical. The top cover will then lift off. You will see there are two belts - the pulley device between the motor and the brush roller is the sensor that measures the drag on the brushes and operates the automatic height adjuster to maintain constant drag. To the right of that double pulley is the electronic circuit board - note that it has a sensor that locates within the pulley device, be careful not to damage it.
STEP 4. At the left end of the motor cover, the drive cog is concealed by a small cover. Lift this cover out vertically, noting how it locates in the frame for when you come to put it back. Next, although not essential, it helps to remove the metal lever because if it falls out when you're not looking you may later be uncertain about how to locate the small coil spring. So slide that lever out towards the motor, noting how the spring locates.
STEP 5. Undo the two screws holding the circuit board (take care the washers don't slip away). Then undo the four screws holding the double pulley. Once that's free, you'll be able to change the belts.
Re-assembly is simply the reverse of the above process.

OK, but be warned... it's not so difficult getting the thing apart, but making a neat job of reassembly has been known to drive grown men to despair. And that's because you have to remove the airbelt. But first things first:
1. remove the hose
2. remove the hose-retaining ring
3. remove the flap that covers the green filter.
4. remove the screw beneath that flap nearest to the handle (there's a deeply recessed screw on the other side, but you can ignore that)
5. remove the clip at the back of the machine where the airbelt joins (lever it off carefully with a screwdriver)
6. this is where it begins to get interesting. The airbelt is in two parts - the bulky foam strip and a thin material cover. The cover is held in grooves, top and bottom, running all the way round the machine, by two thin plastic strips around which it is wrapped and which just slip into those grooves. The first challenge is to get those strips, and the covering material, out without damaging them. Just prise one end out with a small screwdriver and work your way around the machine - it's more a matter of patience than anything else. (The second challenge is getting it back neatly!)
7. remove the ends of the foam strip far enough to reveal two plastic clips that hold top and bottom of the body together
8. prise those clips off with a screwdriver.
9. it should now be possible to lift the top cover off. It can be a bit fiddly getting it off over the neck where the hose plugs in, but it does come off.
10. the cable rewind spool is now revealed in all its glory.
11. if you've found my advice helpful so far, here's a final piece... don't try to fit a new cable to the old spool - fit a complete new spool.
12. good luck!
I value feedback, so please remember to rate this response.

Testimonial: "Followed your directions and were fine.I joined a new lead close to the end of the spool by soldering the wires together and covered with tape. Now ok"
