Sebo Vacuum runs intermittently and keeps cutting out and restarting


There could be numerous reasons for this. What I would try in this order to help troubleshoot is this:

1. If you wiggle the power cord near where it inserts into the vacuum cleaner itself, does the vacuum turn on and off constantly? If so, you have a damaged cord or loose connections that need to be fixed.
2. Has the bag been emptied, and if the vacuum has a filter element, has this been cleaned? Vacuums may cutout if they get too hot. A vacuum can overheat if either the bag is full, the filter is blocked, or there are other obstructions to airflow, which cause the motor to work harder and draw more voltage, resulting in more heat. It may have a thermal cutoff which is tripping constantly. Solution is to ensure bag is not full, or less than 3/4 full, any air filters are cleaned and check for any other obstructions in the air flow paths.
3. Ensure the power supply is adequate for the vacuum. Try running it without long extension cords if you have been using those.
4. Check and clean the switch. Sticky or dust contacts on switches can cause variable cycling (cutting out and restarting).

Hope that helps!

Bag full or clog light comes on but new bag and no blockage... Sebo x4 upright cleaner


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

Sebo Automatic X1 Stopped. Yesterday my Sebo stopped working. I know this can happen if it gets blocked and overheated so I checked for blockages, none. And left it too cool down. Tried it again but it was...


Hello,

Ok, thanks for the clarification. Even though the cord doesn't have any external damage, it's still very possible that it has gone bad. When a Sebo upright doesn't even start, this can mean one of several things. The parts that could go bad that would cause the machine not to turn on would be the cord (most common on a Sebo), the on/off switch, the PC board that's on top of the motor, or the actual motor. In the 7 years that I've been selling Sebo, I have only changed out one PC board, and I've never had to replace a single motor on a Sebo yet. I have had to replace several cords over the years, some showing external damage, others didn't show any damage.

The cord and the switch are going to be the easiest parts to test, and also happen to be the most common, so this is a great place to start.


Here's how you can test the switch and the cord on the vacuum cleaner. You'll need to have a simply Electrical tester that will test if current is going through the cord. Here's a link to a similar one that is very inexpensive that I used in this repair solution:
http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1vZ1xh7/R-100183054/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053


Step 1. Unwrap the electrical cord from the vacuum cleaner, and set the entire cord aside. Also remove the on-board wand that rests directly behind the bag housing. After the wand has been taken out, you should see on the left side of the vacuum where the handle goes into the body of the vacuum a little gray lever (my picture this lever is yellow as I only had a Sebo X5 on the floor, but the repair is identical). This is what the lever looks like:

Step 2. As you'll see if you look closely, the lever says "closed". Turn the lever towards the front of the vacuum so the lever reads "open".


8d9a86b.jpg
Step 3. Once the lever is moved to open, lift straight up on the entire handle assembly to remove it from the vacuum cleaner.


3c3c9cb.jpg
Step 4. Once you have the handle assembly out of the vacuum cleaner, turn the handle upside down. You'll be able to see two small metal electrical terminals that connect into the base of the vacuum where the handle meets the vacuum cleaner. Make sure that both terminals are visible. I have seen a few Sebo's where the handle has come loose, and these terminals no longer make connection to the rest of the vacuum, causing the vacuum not to turn on. You can re-attach the handle into the vacuum cleaner, turn the lever on the side from open back to closed, and test the vacuum to see if it comes on.

Step 5. If the vacuum failed to come on after reinstalling the handle, take the handle back out of the vacuum. Put one of the wires from your electrical tester into each terminal in the bottom of the handle assembly. Make sure that the tester is actually making contact with the metal terminals. It should look like this:


614747f.jpg
Step 6. With each of the electrical tester wires pushed down into the handle and making sure they are making contact, plug the cord into a standard wall outlet. If current is present, the electrical tester will light up. If not light comes on, try flipping the on/off switch and see if this has an effect on if the tester lights up or not:


1fdc3c7.jpg
As you can see in the picture above, the cord and switch on this vacuum are good. If your tester lights up when you put it into the handle, then this means that your cord and switch are good. This means that either your motor, or PC board have gone bad.

If the tester signals that you don't have any power at the bottom of the handle, then this means that either your switch or your cord is bad.

If you will please let me know the results of the electrical test here on the bottom of the handle, I will then go into the next steps of the repair, and explain how to open up the machine and either replace the cord / switch, or if you did have power here, the pc board or the motor.

Please just use the clarification request form that you used last time. I hope this was helpful in diagnosing your machine. If this helped you, please be kind and rate the repair as helpful by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top of the repair.

I look forward to helping you fix your Sebo.

I want to release flex from sebo x4 vacuum cleaner to cut back...


On the underside of the handle, there's a small screw close to where the metal and plastic parts join. Undo this screw. This will allow you to pull the plastic part out of the metal part - not very far, but just far enough so that you can separate the plastic part into two halves lengthways. That gives you access to the switch, and you should find the rewiring job and reassembly straight forward from there on.
I hope this helps. If you need more, just post a reply and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. I do value feedback, so please remember to rate this answer.

Sebo automatic X1. After switching on the motor


As sure as possible without actually seeing your machine, the carbon brushes on the motor are worn out. They are quite easy to replace (and not expensive). If you need help with doing the job, just post a reply here and I'll guide you as best I can. If you choose to have a professional do it for you, it should take no more than half an hour's labour.
I hope this has been helpful - please remember to score me! Good luck!

Sebo x5 vacuum cleaner


The full bag light comes on when it is getting full or a blockage in the hose or the dirt inlet by the brush roll. Other then that, there is a circuit board called the computer controller, part #5740ER and is giving you a false reading and causing a shut down.
