I have used a Sebo automatic X4 extra cleaner for many years with no problems. Now, when I use attachments the brushes continue to roll and damage the carpet/floor.

The brushes are supposed to continue to roll, even when the cleaner is in an upright position. However, the cleaner is supposed to raise fully up, so that the brushes are away from the carpet/floor. This is controlled by a reed switch on the lower circuit board and a small round magnet in a post on the swivel head.

Unfortunately, this magnet is only glued on, so after a period of time it may become detached. It sounds as though this is what has happened (though the circuit board might have failed or something, but that is rather unlikely).

If you are lucky, you may be able to find the magnet inside the housing - according to the Sebo helpline, there is really nowhere for the magnet to go and it will probably be stuck to some other metallic part. If you find it, I presume you can just glue it back on again. I don't know whether it matters which way round the magnet is placed. I rather expect that it does, so you should make sure it is replaced the same way round - I would look for glue residue on the magnet.

If you can't find and replace the magnet, then you have to buy and replace the swivel neck assembly.

Dismantle the vacuum, remove the motor:

Then, at the back of the Right Hand Swivel Neck Support, there is a small lug that catches into a recess in the channel it fits into. You need to prise back the channel just near the foot pedal, to allow the Swivel Neck Support to pull upwards.

Remove the neck supports, replace the swivel neck with the new one with the magnet in place and reassemble.

How do you replace a vacuum hose on a Riccar upright Vacuum.

Riccar Tandem Air models have a hose that has releases to push to remove the hose. Most Vibrance & 8000 series and older series vacuums have the hose attached to a swivel on the back of the vacuum. The hose can be unscrewed from the swivel. To remove the swivel you need to remove the vacuum bag inside the dust compartment, you must compress the tabs holding the swivel to the body to be able to pull it out.

Power nozzle shuts off and like there is s bad wire electrolux epic 6500

the plastic wands are a problem sometimes, but the most common failure is the pivot, or swivel neck on the power nozzle. The wires are bad to pull loose or even break inside. Take it to your local vac repair shop and have them look at it. You either have a bad wand or a bad swivel neck most likely.

How do I remove the swivel neck assembly from the vacuum case?

You will also need to remove the screws on the inside that hold the motor in place because part of the side support for the swivel is under the motor. Remember to disconnect wires coming from the swivel as well before you try to pull it out, so that you do not damage them. Hope this helps.

HOw do I replace the riccar 8850 hose?

Inside the bad compartment you can see the swivel portion sticking through. You will need to take a screwdriver and push in on the tabs on the swivel to release it so it can be removed from the body of the vacuum. The new hose ans swivel will just push into the hole and the tabs will hold it in.

Loud whistling noise it is just going on five years old when I pull it backward a loud noise emmits

If you whistling is only happening when pulling back on the machine, the problem is with the connection between the bag housing and the swivel neck. There is a rubber gasket between the two, located on the bottom of the bag housing. Check to see if this seal is in place. If it is there and in good shape, check for excessive wear on either the swivel neck or bag housing. Windsor Sensor Vacuum Seal 5163 86144910 allstar javelin

I have to replace the power head swivel. I have the part. I can't quite figure out how to swap out the broken with new.


I just shot a short video explaining how to replace your swivel neck. I hope this was helpful to you.

Also, here's another repair I wrote showing how to replace the belt, which will help you "crack" the two housings apart on the Kenmore Canisters.

The Clog light is on my Sebo Essential G1 vacuum

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!
