Question about Sebo X4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
First, what is the issue you are experiencing?
You should feel some resistance when turning the beater bar as it is being driven by a fairly tight belt and a motor. The most common issue with the beater bar would be a burning rubber smell. This would mean that the bar was not turning while is was on but in your case it is.

My powerhead turns freely and there is NO lights when the unit is engaged . The last time I took to the repair shop the tech just puts the reset on the top and the unit worked. This time it is working. Does the belt need to be tight?

Well, the brush roll isn't supposed to turn freely when it is switched off. Im puzzled as to why you would want it to do so? The brush turns the way it is supposed to turn when it is switched on, and does allow some slack the other way, particularly when taking out the entire brush roll to clean off threads or hairs etc. That's why you would find arrows on the brush roll cap at the end that shows you to insert the brush roll and turn it around to lock in place.

If the motor really is working, the problem is most likely to be that there's a blockage somewhere, and on this excellent vacuum cleaner there aren't too many places to look. You've probably already looked in the inspection flap on the underside. If not, that's the first place to look. Next is to separate the bag compartment from the base of the machine (press and hold the button at bottom front of bag compartment and just pull the two sections apart - if this hasn't been done for some time, a gentle levering with something like the plastic handle of a dish brush can help). Then look down the rearmost vacuum tube to check that it's clear, also make sure the little sieve on the other tube is clear. That's all for the base section. Now open the bag compartment, remove the bag and check that tube all the way through the hose.
Another possibility is air leakage, and it does happen on older machines that the plastic tube onto which the attachments fit becomes so worn that it no longer seals properly in the hole in the base (where it lives for normal floor vacuuming). You could also have split in the flexible hose, of course.
If none of this reveals a problem, the motor probably isn't as healthy as you think it is.
I hope this helps. Any questions, just post again and I'll see what more I can do. I value your feedback, so please rate this response.

The roller brush has stopped turning, I think it could be the belt, how do I seperate the top from the bottom?
I will await your reply.

Just the other day we had a customer bring a Felix in to our repair shop with the same problem. Although she'd had the Felix for several years, she'd never realized that one of the buttons on the base is a foot-operated switch (the left hand one as you see it from behind the machine). Hers had been "on" from day one, and never been switched off... until she'd obviously inadvertently pressed it without noticing and switched it off. Then she thought something had broken.
It may be as simple as that. So, does the green light come on when you operate the foot switch? If it does, and the brush doesn't spin, you have most likely got a problem with the motor (or possibly the circuit board) in the base. If the green light does not come on, there is most likely a poor (or broken) electrical connection where the bag compartment plugs in to the base.
I'll gladly try to be more help if you want to post more details.

At 12 years, this vacuum has had a good long life. I suspect the motor is shot, but it could be due to faulty wiring and connections. A bad switch, break in the power cord, and worn brushes in the motor are other causes.
I recommend taking it to a shop for diagnosis and repair. You may be better off buying a new vacuum if the cost of repair and parts seems excessive.
