This is a dead motor. the electrical motor is experiencing windings failure and will have to be replaced or rebuilt. Just to be safe, remove the switch and test with voltage needle to see if the problems here. i suspect total motor failure.

THE BRUSH ON MY HEAD FOR THE SEBO K1 HAS STOPPED SPINNING WHY???


Check the brush roller at each side to see if threads are wound around it. Also, check the brush to see if there are threads wound around it. This is what generally stops the brushes from spinning. It will take sometime to unwind the threads/lint and you may need scissors and tweezers to fully remove all of them but it will be worth it!

Taking off the bumper from A Sebo K1 Airbelt


First, remove the clip at the back of the machine where the airbelt joins (lever it off carefully with a screwdriver). 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 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.

My Sebo AirBelt K1 just stopped working


I work with a Sebo dealer (in the UK), where we repair all makes of vacuum cleaner. It's testimony to the quality of Sebos that in several years I've only had one of this model to repair (so my memory is somewhat sketchy). However, from first principles, the finger of suspicion points to two likely causes of this problem. First, the copper wire may have broken within the flex - this commonly happens where the flex is subject to both stress and tight bending, which is the two extremities (where the flex enters the plug, and where the flex joins the rewind reel). You will need a continuity tester of some kind to check this, of course. The flex may be visibly damaged, but often there's nothing visible externally. Second possibility is that one or both of the motor's carbon brushes is worn out. You will need to get them off the motor to check. Check both - they can sometimes wear very unequally - a new one will have about 2cm of carbon exposable, whereas a worn one can have nothing left at all. As for what's economically replaceable... it depends what you can do for yourself. In the UK a new flex complete with rewind reel will set you back about £45. However, it is possible just to wire in a length of new flex provided you make sure that any connection you make is good, safe and not subject to stress from winding and unwinding. As for the carbon brushes, in the UK they are about £5 each. For a complete new motor you'll not get much change from £100.
I hope this helps. If you need me to try again just post a reply, giving any more information you can, and I'll see what I can do. Good luck!

No power for the vacuum


Hi! I work at repairing Sebos, so can certainly help.  Most probably the cable is damaged, and the two most likely places for that to happen are where it enters the plug and where it enters the rewind mechanism. Before you even think about dismantling the machine to get at that end of things, though, you need to be 100% sure that power is reaching the machine.
I know you've tried a different socket, and that you've changed the fuse (by which I assume you mean the plug-top fuse, and therefore that you're probably in the UK like I am). Good first steps. Checking the integrity of the wire in the cable is a different matter, though. There are inexpensive devices you can buy to check for voltage through normal insulation, but I don't know how deep in to this you want to get...  you've got to be pretty keen (and competent) to think of changing the cable yourself. 
If you'd like to post a response, indicating how far you want to go yourself, I can help you get in to the machine if necessary.

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.
