Check that the dust channel from the sole plate/brush head isn't clogged. Open the trapdoor (usually orange in colour on the base) and inspect the dust channel - sometimes dog hair can get trapped between the main dust channel and the feeder. Other than that take off the main hose and see if there's a clog down there as well as the main part where the wand locks in at the back. Its reasonably easy to get a clog out from a Sebo X range model.

The suction is not working


some machines have a 'safety' built in where if the belt is broken, other items like the lights don't work. Check and replace the belt first. It's also very important to keep the tubes that suck air unclogged, and clean the filters EVERY time you use it

How do I clear a blockage


Try removing your hose from the bag housing (pinch retaining ring and pull out) and re-inserting in reverse order. Turn the vacuum on and suck the clog into the bag. This will usually clear a clog from the hose. If the clog is in the power head (base), you can usually access it from the top side of the swivel neck or the orange access door on the bottom of the chassis.

Sebo upright barged hoover- good suction using hose, brush wont turn, sounds fine when running, nasty wineing noise when stopping?? help!! i love my hoover, have checked for bolckages....


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.

sounds like there is blockage in the suction hose -- lay the machine down and remove the lower floor plate and clean out the hose area where it bends down to the floor unit ( use a wire coat hanger to fish out the blockage ). also check the main hose for any obstructions.

Check the airflow tube behind the brush. This is a common place for clogs. The hose is more common, especially at elbows, like where it attaches to the tank. Another possibility is a dirty filter. Check this first to rule it out, then check the rest.

Most likely your vent for the suction container is plugged or the suction hose can of or is broken at the connection to the tank nozzle (very common on these. Clean the machine thoroughly, and check that all hoses are tight and connected.

Panasonic MC-E468 vacuum cleaner loss of suction


HI If the cleaner is loosing suction make sure to check all inspection tubes and the dirt channel hoses after the spinning brush. Also check the main hose for any clogging. One of the worst faults of this model is clogging hoses. Hope that helps you.

SEBO vacuum cleaner


Take the hose off and see if the light is still on or is it off. If it is off, then there is a clog in the hose. While the hose is off, drop something thru it and see if it comes out the other end. Press the retaining clip and the hose will disconnect. Separate the power head from the handle unit to make sure there is no clog by the brush roll. If it is still on then probably the computer controller, part # 5740ER has a problem. It is located in the power head.

Sudden loss of suction.


Check the inlet down by the brush roll to see if it is clogged. Also check the belt to be sure it is ok. Is there suction at the hose? If not then it is still clogged.
