Battery error messages

I agree with JE :).
Did you check the old batteries with a volt meter? With the same error message pre and post replacement, either you are one of the people with bad luck, or it's in the "brains". You can attempt fault isolation, but I don't know if it would be worth the time since replacement parts from manufactures are notoriously expensive.

Finally check the charging station. Clean the rails on the charger, and the connections on the machine with alcohol. Sometimes the worst problems can be solved with one simple action, or at least Occam said.

Brush not turnning

The brush roller is driven by a belt installed on the motor shaft. The belt could be broken or off the shaft. The brush roller could be clogged inside the end caps with debris which prevents rotation. To solve the debris problem, it will be necessary to remove the belt from the motor shaft, then note the orientation of the end caps and remove the brush roller. Next, remove one end cap and check for clogging material. Remove the material. Slide the brush roller shaft away from the end of the brush roller to check for clogging material at the opposite end. Remove the material. Slide the brush roller shaft back into position and reinstall the end cap. Reinstall the brush roller in the correct position. Reinstall the belt. Check for proper rotation of the brush roller.

Changed belt. have burning smell

Take it back apart, check it again. Check the plastic where the belt is running for burnt spots. Also check the brush roller sometimes the tension from a new belt can finish off what was left of the bearings and cause the plastic end caps and roller to melt. Pull out the roller and try to spin it while holding the end caps. If it doesn't spin or spins hard there's your smell. Most times when the rollers go bad they break the belt. Replace the roller if necessary Make sure the roller is in correctly and flush and that the bottom plate goes on easily.

Good Luck

Roller doesn't forward or backward...

Check the belt, if it's a belt driven brush roller. If not, check the bearings of the roller. You may need to replace the brush roller. Take it to a local shop and have it looked at.

Hi we seem to have a problem with our Sebo .When in use as you draw the hoover back and forth seems to become very heavy to push as if the suction is becoming stronger. PLease can you advise. Mary

As you know, your Sebo automatically adjusts its brush height according to the type of floor it's on. At the correct brush height, on carpet, the machine should almost pull itself forwards. If this is not happening, the first thing to check is to look and see if the bristles on the brush roller are very worn (bristles on a new roller will almost entirely fill the available space). If they are worn, a new roller will almost certainly solve the problem. If the problem persists, the automatic height control mechanism may have failed (possible but very unusual) and a professional repair will be necessary. You may notice that I haven't even mentioned the possibility that one of the belts may have broken (in which case the brush roller will not be rotating at all) - because of the machine's excellent design, broken belts are almost unknown (they can last for 15 years and more) but not completely impossible.
My message in a nutshell: look to the brush roller first. If a new one doesn't solve the problem, go to a professional repairer.
I value your feedback, so please remember to rate my response.  Thanks!

Roller not working

Yes. Checking the belt would be a good place to start.  Turn the machine over and remove the soleplate - there are three screws designed to be turned just one quarter turn each using a coin.  With the soleplate removed you will see the belt or, more likely, where the belt should be if the old one's broken.  Get a new belt and pop it on, and you'll be back in business.
This is almost certainly the problem, as there's not much else to go wrong down there, but if this doesn't help post another message and we'll try again.  Good luck.
