Open Question

My 9 year old Sebo X4 will not stay in the upright position. The foot pedal no longer springs back to hold the machine in the upright position. Has a spring broken? Which part needs replacing?

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!

Have you checked the filters to see if they are blocked and need cleaning/replacing. Failing that it could be the sensor at fault.

SOURCE: Hi, I've just had my Sebo X4 back from being repaired (motor was growling so Sebo replaced it FOC under warranty) however, the replacement motor is 1000 watts. I queried this with Sebo, as they c

Watt= volts x amps So what are you losing? Not much really. Should they replace it with the same motor? Possibly, but you got a free motor out of them. To be honest I think you're splitting hairs on this one. The difference in how much cleaning that sebo will do with one motor vs the other is beyond minimal. The aggressive brushes on that vacuum do 95% of the carpet cleaning and both motors will have no problem turning it at sufficient speed. As far as suction goes I'd be amazed if it was even a noticeable difference. That's an amazing vacuum you bought, I wouldn't worry about it and go on with life.


Good Luck

How do I fit the foot pedal back on on a SEBO


This is much easier to do than to describe! Your question suggests that you plan to re-fit the same pedal that has come off, so first you need to be sure that nothing actually broke when it came off. You should be able to clip the plastic part back on to the metal part - it should stay there and not fall off (if it falls off, you need a new one). The trick is to get the flat metal part correctly located in the plastic part, so with the plastic part not clipped on, pull the metal part down and rest it in the plastic part, then push the plastic part in to position. The flat metal part should then be trapped behind two projections on the plastic part, so that there is some movement, but not much. These projections may possibly have worn away, allowing the pedal to come away in the first place, in which case you will need a new piece.
I hope this helps. If so, please remember to rate this response as I value feedback. If you need more help, just post a reply here and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Good luck!

Hi, I have a Sebo X4 which is almost 3 years old. I haven't had any problems with it until the last couple of days when I notice a slight screeching noise when in upright position, coming from the roller...


I dismantled the top part of the machine from the bottom and there stuck right down in the bowels of the tubes was a piece of card, a dress label! somehow it was only making a noise when the machine was in an upright position. It took a bit of stretching and maneurering but once it was out the problem was solved.

My upright sebox4 will not stand . It keeps on dropping down.


This is usually a matter of lubrication (or lack thereof). If you look under the base of the machine, you will see that the "clip" as you call it is part of the metal axle on which the wheels are mounted. This axle is held in place by 3 metal tabs, each held by a single screw. About mid-way along, there's a spring coiled around the axle. That spring is what holds the "clip" (the bent part of the axle) against the tube that connects to the base of the bag compartment and holds it upright.
It's possible that your spring is broken, but often the problem is that the axle is sticking and the spring can't do its job properly. Try a small drop of oil under each of the 3 metal tabs. If that doesn't work, remove the 3 tabs completely, remove the axle (noting how the spring locates, so you can put it back correctly) and give everything a good clean. Then reassemble and try again.
Good luck!

How do I change the flilter on the sebo upright


Depends on the filter you're talking about:
The first filter is in the bag area- unhook and lift off the bin door, then bend down and flick your finger onto the left hand spring that locks the long cylindrical felt filter in place and lift upwards - this will loosen and unlock the filter from the base - put your hand at the back or front of the filter at the front near the base and pull towards you - the filter should then slide off easily.
Or it could be the motor filter you are referring to; push the pedal all the way down on the pedal release to put the X1/X1.1/X4/X5 into the lay-flat cleaning position, and push back the grille on top of the hood - you'll see a push finger mechanism there of which the grille will then be unlocked and can be picked up.
