The real clue seems to be the brush is not turning, a bad belt is possible or a blockage at that head, if you cannot get the brush moving the rest does not matter.

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!

Check for any blockage in the hose or the inlet by the brush roll. Is the brush roll jammed? There are 2 circuit boards, one for the 12V power supply and the other is the computer controller, one of these may have gone bad.

SOURCE: Hi we seem to have a problem with our Sebo .When

As you know, your Sebo automatically adjusts its brush height according to the type of floor it's on. At the correct brush height, on carpet, the machine should almost pull itself forwards. If this is not happening, the first thing to check is to look and see if the bristles on the brush roller are very worn (bristles on a new roller will almost entirely fill the available space). If they are worn, a new roller will almost certainly solve the problem. If the problem persists, the automatic height control mechanism may have failed (possible but very unusual) and a professional repair will be necessary. You may notice that I haven't even mentioned the possibility that one of the belts may have broken (in which case the brush roller will not be rotating at all) - because of the machine's excellent design, broken belts are almost unknown (they can last for 15 years and more) but not completely impossible.
My message in a nutshell: look to the brush roller first. If a new one doesn't solve the problem, go to a professional repairer.
I value your feedback, so please remember to rate my response.  Thanks!

HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

Your Hoover may be losing suction in the hose and having an issue with the brush roll due to a clog within the vacuum, or possible debris stuck on the brush roll itself. Here's some tips that will help.

First off, if your brush roll just keeps turning be sure to turn off your vacuum before examining it. In regards to the lack of suction in the hose there may be a clog in the vacuum itself.

After every use, make sure to empty your unit's dust cup. Allowing for fine dust and debris to rest in your unit's dust cup for a long period may cause your unit to become clogged, which leads to poor or even no suction, for the hose as well.

It is recommended to wash and clean your unit's filter weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours. Be sure to allow it to FULLY dry.

Lets look at the hose itself. Stretch the hose out entirely to see if there are any clogs within. A handy way to unclog your hose is to use a broom handle or coat hanger. Make sure the coat hanger is a plastic one. You don't want to tear the walls of your hose.

As for the brush roll itself. Is the belt intact? After usage the belt will stretch out and lessen the tension on the brush roll. This could be causing the brush roll to have a lack of resistance against it. You want to be sure the belt is on there nice and tight. Also, manually spin the brush roll to see if there are any clogs or debris stuck within.

I get a wining noise from the vacuum, like it is needing air


It sounds like you have a obstruction on the suction porsion of the machine. Take the hose of the unit and see if the noise is still there. If not there is something caught in the hose brush or where the brush attaches.

My sebo does not seem to be picking up stuff off carpet, what can i do. When I use the hose apart from the vacum it does having sucking power.


Unlike most vacuum cleaners, the Sebo Felix has two separate motors - one for the suction and one to drive the brush roll - so there are several things to check. You say the hose has suction, so the problem is in the lower part of the machine. First, check that there's no blockage in the base of the machine, then check that the brush roll is actually rotating when the machine's switched on. If there's no blockage and the brush roll is rotating, then the problem is simply that the brush bristles are worn and you need a new brush roll. If the brush roll is not rotating, listen to hear if the motor is running - if it is, then you need a new drive belt. If the motor is not running, there's an electrical problem and you may need professional help. If you need more advice, post a response here and I'll do what I can to help. Good luck!

Hoover makes terrible screaching sound when using upright.


It's most likely the bushings/bearings in the beater bar (roller). The beater bar cover is fairly easy to remove -- take it off and investigate. Could be that the roller only needs lubricating on the ends. Also, check the belt to see if it's intact or damaged.

Clean area thoroughly.

If this is not the problem, please, let me know.

Kenmore Progressive Direct Drive Upright - noise and bad suction


Had the same problem tonight. Took the entire thing apart only to find there was a much simpler solution. Check the small hose that runs from the brush rollers where the longer hose (on the back) attaches to the side of the vacuum. Easiest way to do this is to lay the handle down and stick something (coat hanger worked good) through it until it comes out of the head. I found a pretty good sized fuzz plug in mine. As soon as I removed it, everything worked great again - and no noise!

Loss of suction in my Hoover Windtunnel bagless selfpropelled upright


Did you check the dirt inlet by the brush roll, filters ok, they should be replaced once a year. Belts can look fine, but if they are a few months old, I am sure they have stretched and the brush roll will not turn like it should under load. It is possible that the motor isn't running up to speed, thereby reducing suction.
