SOURCE: replace power cable on Sebo X4 vacuum claenaer

From memory the plastic part slides up a little, enough for you to access the wiring. I'll try and have look at work tomorrow.

Warning though! you need to do this work with the handle laying flat, the screw hole upwards - it may be already too late as there is a nut that slides away and can be tricky to get back

1.If your sebo is less than five years old, you have a reciept, and are not using it commercially, in most cases this machine will still be under factory warranty. To locate
an authorized sebo dealer simply call sebo or use the dealer locator on their website.

2. If it is no longer under warranty:
First i would pick up something small such as a balled up gum wrapper and make sure it makes it to the bag, more often than not something is not checked, and its still plugged. Heres how i'd check for plugs.

  • Pull the wand out and remove it from the hose by pressing the button on the wand look through the wand
  • Remove the hose from the machine by pinching the hose clamp and pulling the hose out (it simply presses back in when you are done)
  • press on the large button below the bag compartment on the front. (its often a different color and presses difficultly) lift the bag compartment and handle off the powerhead. (replace by simply pressing the bag compartment back onto the head)
  • look down the powerhead and inspect the other areas of the bag compartment.
  • open the orange/gray door on the bottom of the powerhead and look through checking for debris.
Simply go back up through the steps to reassemble.

If your test makes it into the bag just fine and you are not plugged, the tall filter inside the bag compartment would be my next suggestion and since you changed this it should not be a problem. This leaves few possible problems. Circut board error/Sensor error would be my next step. Essentally its one in the same, but there is no great way to test them without simply replacing parts. (an expensive proposition) The local sebo dealer will more than likely have a working used board they pop in and out to check for problems. Some dealers may let you use these others will require you either buy the parts or pay for labor.

*Bad boards in sebo/windsor products are extremely rare, my bet is always on a plugged filter or plug in general. Be sure to look carefully something as small as a toothpick surrounded by carpet fuzz can set them off.

Best of Luck

SOURCE: My Sebo X4 does not power up, it worked fine the

Most likely is a break in the electric flex. This can be internal, and completely invisible from the outside. Alternatively, the cable may be visibly damaged so check it carefully. Internal damage usually occurs at the extremities of the flex, where it leaves the plug or where it enters the machine, it's hard to detect without suitable testing equipment, although simply moving the flex around (with power switched on) will sometimes locate the problem. Depending on your wish or ability to deal with this yourself, there are several solutions. Of course, if the fault is at the plug end, the old plug can be cut off and a new one fitted. If the fault is at the machine end, the handle can be re-wired but the usual solution is to fit a new handle (complete with flex). This is more expensive in material terms but works out cheaper than a re-wire when labour costs are added (there's no labour in fitting a new handle, but re-wiring a handle takes time). If this doesn't help, please post a further comment, indicating how confident you feel about taking the machine apart, and we'll consider other options. Good luck!

check for clogs, and also check the brush rollers' belt.
Really, i think you should take it to a vacuum shop and have it inspected for problems

SOURCE: Sebo X4 Extra brush light remains on despite

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.
Good luck!

I have a sebo x4 , when I switch it on the red lights flick on and off and nothing happenes


The red lights should flash very quickly upon vacuum start-up (normal). If the motor is not turning on there is likely a problem with the motor or power supply board. The lights flashing does indicate that you are getting power to the PC control board. If your vacuum is under warranty, this would likely be covered. I have included a link to the parts list for your reference. http://sebo.us/pdfs/website_schematicsPDFs/AUTOMATIC%20X%20Schematics.pdf

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

My sebo x4 extra does not start. There is power but no warning lights are flashing. When I turn the vacuum on there is a continual clicking/buzzing sound.


Hi.

Eeither motor or servo motor with gear box is seized. Testing is done energizing the motor. Test and repair must be done by a technician. Call the number listed on the owners manual to contact a qualified repairer.
