Sebo C2 air belt C2 total power cord disappeared inside machine

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.

Check the hose for a clog, also check the dirt inlet by the brush roll, it may have a clog also.

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.

SOURCE: I need to know how to repalce the drive belt in a Sebo upright cl

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. 
If you need more help, just ask.  Please remember to rate this response.

SOURCE: I have a Sebo air belt K1 How do you open the outer casing.

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.

Why will my sebo felix not turn on when it is plugged in. The bag is empty and the beater bar is free of threads and string.


If it is only the power head that does not turn on, make sure that the hose is fully inserted into the bag housing. There is a switch in the bag housing that has to be activated. If you are not getting any power anywhere, the most common cause would be the power cord. If you are getting 120 volts through the cord, you may need a new power switch. I have included a parts list for your machine for reference. http://sebo.us/pdfs/website_schematicsPDFs/FELIX%20Schematics.pdf

Sebo felix belt is broken,taken screws from bottom of vacum but will not come apart


There are actually two belts on your Sebo, one that drives the brush, and the second that attaches to the pulley on one end, and the motor shaft on the other. I'm assuming that the belt you need to replace is probably the brush belt, or the belt that attaches to the brush gear on side, and the pulley on the other.

Here's what you'll need to do:

Step 1. Remove the vacuum bag housing so that you are only working with the power nozzle or the bottom portion of your Sebo, this will make it much easier to work with. Turn the vacuum upside down, and remove only the 5 screws that I have circled in red:


9b05567.jpg

Step 2. After removing the screws on the bottom of the vacuum cleaner, separate the top housing from the lower agitator housing, sometimes it may take putting a flat head screw driver in between the white and grey colored housing and prying them apart.

Step 3. You now have full access to the belts on your machine. It's most likely the belt that wraps around the brush gear rather then the belt that's attached to the motor that's gone bad. I have never replaced the motor belt in 8 years of servicing Sebo vacuums. The easiest way to replace this belt is to loosen the pulley system that the belt wrap around. Unscrew the two screws that hold this pulley in place, and remove the brush drive belt from the pulley, and now you can unwrap it from the brush gear as well now with the extra slack in it. Now, if you've been using your Sebo in your home rather then using it commercially in a business, Sebo actually offers a lifetime belt warranty on their vacuum cleaners. The belt is supposed to last as long as the vacuum, and Sebo will actually cover this repair, both parts and labor as long as the machine is being used in a residential home environment..

Machine keeps cutting out intermittenly

I think my motor is broken , can i simply replace


Unless you know what you're doing, you can easily mess the whole thing up. It's not hard to replace the motor, but its a task you have to pay close attention to. If you can, get the motor from Sebo and then take it to a local vacuum shop and have it installed. But first make sure they are an authorized Sebo ship

My sebo airbelt k2 won't start


Hi It could be two things = one problem is that the cord in Sebo's K model has a bad habit of shearing thanks to its auto pull rewind mechanism. This would have to be replaced by a Sebo repairer.
Or it could be the actual electric socket if the bonded plug is loose - if there are wires visible at the end of the plug then the plug would have to be replaced. Its a common fault on Sebo's K models when the power stops thanks to shearing cords.

Spare wire?


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

I took a picture of the Sebo X4 wiring in the handle of the machine for you. This is a brand new machine taken out of the box, this is how the wiring should look. You'll see that there are 5 total wires here. You'll see the positive and negative from the cord at the top, and the wires that come up from the bottom of the handle are below plug. There is a blue, white, and black wire coming up from the bottom of the handle.

The blue and white should be on spade connector below the white cord lead, and on the right hand side the single black wire from the handle should be attached beneath the black cord lead.

If the machine is still working, then it must have been the Blue or ground wire that you removed, correrct? I'm not sure if this will hurt the machine, but the wire is definitely there for a reason, and if you still have it you may want to reconnect it.

If you'd like to contact Sebo directly and speak with a product specialist there, their phone number is;
800-334-6614.

This link is a parts breakdown of your machine.

Sebo K 3 Vacuum


I had a problem with my K1 Komfort model which sounds similar to this. I initially thought the cord was too short but the machine wouldn't give out anymore and retracting was difficult. A Sebo engineer/helpline told me to pull roughly on the cord, of which I did and was rewarded with 2 metres more than what I thought I didnt have! So, perhaps if your machine isn't retracting properly, give the cord a rough pull with gloves on, or a strong grip - the cables on the K series are notorious for stopping up. Afterwards wipe the entire cord down with furniture polish; it will retract much more quickly.
