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!

Hoover floor mate sucks up water while in the wash position


They do that. They pickup the water in all stages but lower the squeegee to different heights. At no point does the suction turn off.

Sebo upright barged hoover- good suction using hose, brush wont turn, sounds fine when running, nasty wineing noise when stopping?? help!! i love my hoover, have checked for bolckages....


The real clue seems to be the brush is not turning, a bad belt is possible or a blockage at that head, if you cannot get the brush moving the rest does not matter.

Sebo X1 - Doesn't work although there is power


I'm not sure about this one but, as nobody else has picked it up, I'll give it my best guess. You say the machine just hums - by which I take it that there's no suction at all. I wonder how old your Sebo is... if it's seen a lot of work, it's more than likely that the carbon brushes in the motor have worn out and need replacing. This is not a difficult job, but you do need to be comfortable tinkering with machinery to attempt it yourself. Otherwise you will need professional help. If you want to do it yourself, post a reply here and I'll give you step-by-step instructions.
Good luck!

Hoover windtinnel suction problem


the intake hos at the bottom might be clogged.first take all the filters out and disconnect the hos completely from the vacuum,then check and see if you have suction.the intake hose is the clear looking one at the bottom that wrapps itself up from the base to the backside of the upright.you can use a coat hanger to push out the clog if there is one just bend the tip till its rounded.work it down into the intake hose from the back.after removing the hose and the filters you should have suction.just make sure all the filters get cleaned .you can blow out the hose with a garden hose

Sebo automatic x1.1 loss of suction


Check that the dust channel from the sole plate/brush head isn't clogged. Open the trapdoor (usually orange in colour on the base) and inspect the dust channel - sometimes dog hair can get trapped between the main dust channel and the feeder. Other than that take off the main hose and see if there's a clog down there as well as the main part where the wand locks in at the back. Its reasonably easy to get a clog out from a Sebo X range model.

Sebo upright. Check brush light come on when in use. Vacuum appears to be working ok but seems a little heavy.


try adjusting the height up ( higher the better ) also make sure the brush is turnig freely if not remove it ( push the button on the top of the brush roll housing and pull the side off ) and make sure nothing is stuck

Hoover self propelled upright


You can adjust the cable, it is from the front, on the right side, it has a torz screw that you loosen, then you can slide the cable back and forth, just move it alittle back then tighten it down and try it. Here is a site that you can see a bigger picture: http://vacuumsuperstore.com/U6625part.html

Floormate not suctioning water back up


I love my floormate so muck that when my first one stopped vacuuming, I bought a new one - just figured it died. Then my new one worked well until one day, it suddenly stopped.

I discovered that the filter attachment holder (the clear plastic cover over the filter) has to click into place. I guess this might not be a problem for some, but I thought it just sat there over the filter. I finally pushed pretty hard (mostly in frustration at first) and it clicked into place. Now the suction works fine.
