Question about Sebo Felix Classic Bagged Upright Vacuum
The brush is not going round and the lights are not working
I had the same problem. Make sure nothing is clogging the airway, then bring the handle down as if to clean but dont turn it on. Press the 'light' button in and then turn it on. Hopefully that should do it.

Just the other day we had a customer bring a Felix in to our repair shop with the same problem. Although she'd had the Felix for several years, she'd never realized that one of the buttons on the base is a foot-operated switch (the left hand one as you see it from behind the machine). Hers had been "on" from day one, and never been switched off... until she'd obviously inadvertently pressed it without noticing and switched it off. Then she thought something had broken.
It may be as simple as that. So, does the green light come on when you operate the foot switch? If it does, and the brush doesn't spin, you have most likely got a problem with the motor (or possibly the circuit board) in the base. If the green light does not come on, there is most likely a poor (or broken) electrical connection where the bag compartment plugs in to the base.
I'll gladly try to be more help if you want to post more details.

Most likely this is a problem with the flex. Quite often it gets damaged (simply wear and tear) - most commonly just where it leaves the plug or where it enters the machine, as these points are subject to the most strain and flexing. Unless you feel confident dealing with electrical problems, you are best advised to let a professional repairer look at the machine.

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!

Sorry you've had to wait so long for a reply. Perhaps you no longer need help, but here goes anyway.
Must confess I'm not certain about this, but my guess is that the automatic height adjust mechanism (let's call it the HAM for convenience) isn't working properly. The HAM works by sensing the drag of the brush roll against the carpet, and raising or lowering the front of the machine as necessary to maintain constant drag.
So first you need to check the HAM, as follows: with the handle in the locked upright position, switch on and wait for a few seconds (there may or may not be any signal from the green UP or DOWN lights). Then, still switched on, lower the handle to the normal operating position and check that the green DOWN light comes on. Wait until the DOWN light goes off and then return the handle to fully upright (switched on all the time). When fully upright the UP light should come on for a few seconds and you may be able to see the handle tilt backwards as the front of the machine rises.
If this is all working properly, we need to look elsewhere for a solution. The next thing I would look for is for a broken belt. Just turn the machine over while it's running and look to see that the brush is rotating (keeping fingers and clothing well clear, of course). Sebo belts usually last 15 years or more, but breakages are not unknown.
I realise this may not exactly solve your problem, but it should give you something to work on. If you need more help, post a reply here, saying what you've found so far, and I'll try to be more specific.

Ive got a Sebo Felix. Unfold the bag (if its folded) and drop it into the top of the bin. Once you've aligned the plastic parts the two nibs which are pointing outwards towards the handle, make sure the plastic collar is sitting on the rest of the surround.
Now the most important aspect is the plastic flap - not the dust cap - but if standing behind the Felix, there is a green flap on the left hand side of the bag which must be pushed down over the spring (looks like a large staple). Once that is folded over and locked in, the lid should close. If the lid still doesn't close check that the top hose fitting has been securely locked and is dust free. Dont forget to rate, ty.
