No power


Those have a tendency to short out in the wands. Use a test light or meter to find out where the power stops. Test lower wand first then upper then hose, then unit. Replacement wands are available, there's really no fixing them. I'll include a link to the wands I'm referring to.


Good Luck!

Clogged Sebo automatic X-1 vacuum


Hi There,

So when this light is displaying, it's says "Bag Full or Clog" on the indicator. If you have changed the bag, and it's still showing this light, it means that you either have a clog in the vacuum, or your filters are dirty, which is reducing the suction and making the machine think that your bag is full. If your machine is actually cutting off, this indicates that your machine is definitely clogged, or something is stuck inside which is causing the motor to not get air flow, and cauing the machine to over heat. When it shuts off like this, it's a protection system that prevents any damage from happening to the motor when it can't breathe and starts to overheat.

My guess is that there is probably a clog in the machine somewhere, or the filters are dirty. Here's what you may do to diagnosis the machine, and try to isolate the clog to find out where it is in the vacuum.

Step 1. Remove the hose and wand assembly from the vacuum cleaner completely. You may do this by pressing the two tabs on the end of the hose that plugs into the vacuum cleaner:


cca2760.jpg
With the hose and the wand removed from the vacuum, it should look like this:

b7c34c5.jpg
Step 2. Now turn the vacuum cleaner on and check to see if the red light comes on while the hose and the wand have been removed. If the light comes on, then this indicates that your filter is dirty (or the PCB electric board is bad if the filter is clean) and needs to be replaced.

Step 2. Re-attach the hose and wand back on the vacuum, but just the end of the hose that goes into the vacuum cleaner, leave the wand out of the vacuum cleaner so it looks like this:


db25806.jpg
Turn the machine on now as if you were using the attachment hose to clean corners or above the floor and see if the red light comes on here. Also listen to the noise the motor makes and see if the noise changes when you put the hose back on the vacuum cleaner. If the red light appears, or if the motor makes a higher pitched noise now, then this indicates that you have a clog in your hose or wand. You may verify this by remove the hose again from the vacuum, and also removing the wand from the hose by pressing the hose release button on the wand and pulling the hose out of the wand. Look down both of the parts and see if you can see thru both sides. If you're not able to see light through the hose, or the wand, this indicates this is where the clog is. You may take a metal clothes hanger, and try removing the clog this way.

Step 3. If the red light did not display with the wand not inserted into the vacuum, put the wand back into the vacuum cleaner as if you were vacuuming the floors:


1a089d0.jpg
Turn the machine on, and see if the red light comes on in this position. If the light does come on, then this indicates that you have a clog in the bottom of the vacuum cleaner. To check and see the clog in the bottom of the machine, I find it easiest to remove the upper bag housing from the vacuum cleaner completely so you're just looking at the bottom power nozzle of the vacuum cleaner. There's a button at the bottom of the machine that is either a grey, or yellow color depending on what color your vacuum is. Simply press this button in, and lift upwards on the handle or the bag housing at the same time:


2b91587.jpg
Step 4. After the bag housing has been removed, turn the lower part of the vacuum upside down so the brushes are facing upwards. There's a little orange flap on the bottom of the machine that is actually a clog port. Almost every time there is a clog in a Sebo, this is where I typically find the clog. Open up this orange colored trap door, and look to see if you can see any obstruction or clog underneath of here:


08da832.jpg
Step 5. You may rotate the neck of the power nozzle part towards you so that you may look inside to see if you see any obstructions inside:

c034305.jpg
Step 5. You may also remove the brushes from the vacuum and look behind the brushes at the suction port, or the area where the suction goes through the vacuum to see if you see anything obstructing the suction here.

These are really the only places that the Sebo can get clogged. If you checked all of these areas, and the red light is still displaying, this means that your PC Board that controls this indicator has gone bad, and needs to be replaced. If this is the case, please just reply to this repair using the comment field, and I'll be more then happy to help you through the replacement of replacing the PCB Board.

I hope this answer was helpful to you, and you were able to find the clog and fix the problem. If you found my repair helpful, please be sure to rate the repair by clicking the 4 thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner, or by leaving feedback for me. This is really what keeps repair professionals continue to post free repair solutions rather then just the paid questions. It's really appreciated when you take the time and do this if the repair was helpful.

Thank you so much,

Will not come on electrolux cannister renissance


The Renaissance and a few other models require a series of steps in troubleshooting, done in specific order, to diagnose the problem. The vacuum, hose, wands, and power nozzle need to be taken to an authorized Aerus Electrolux shop for this. The service manual is only available to the service techs, and franchise owner.
If these steps aren't followed, additional problems may result.

Things you can check include:
1. Afterfilter. This is located beneath the on-board tools. Open the access door to the tool holder by pressing latch at front of door. Squeeze clips at the front of the tray and lift to remove. If the filter is dirty, replace it. Turn vacuum on and see if it works.

2. Check for clogs in hose, wands, and power nozzle.
Disconnect hose, hold one end up, and drop a coin in. Lift end of hose so that the coin drops out. If it doesn't there's a clog that needs cleared. You may be able to do this by attaching the hose to the blower hole, placing the other end into intake and holding it there, and turning on the vacuum. If this doesn't work, it will need to be taken to the Aerus shop for clearing.
Visually check wands for a clog. A clog in the wands can be cleared with a broom stick or similar item.
Visually check the power nozzle from the bottom and the wand connection. If no clog is seen, try dropping a coin into the wand connection and seeing if it drops through. A clog here can be cleared using a wooden spoon handle or similar blunt stick.

I think the power head is clogged with pine needles. The carpet head is not picking up. How do I open it to clean it out?


Make sure you have suction at the end of the hose. If not, the clog is most likely in the hose. Detach hose from vacuum and wand. Drop a coin into one end and allow it to fall through. If it doesn't drop out, the clog is definitely in the hose. Then visually check the wands for a clog
Disassembling the power nozzle is not necessary, or recommended. First, ensure the clog is in the power nozzle. Drop a coin in the wand end and see if it falls out. If not, the clog is elsewhere. You should be able to clear the power nozzle by disconnecting the wand. Use the handle of a table knife to try to push the clog back through the power nozzle, toward the brush. If that doesn't work, try using long nosed pliers to clear the clog.

I just cleaned the beater brush area, turns fine, but it still will no pick up cat hair. Suggestions?


In mine, I found a huge clog between the vac hose (not the one for your wand) and the beater bar area. Hard to discover a clog here without removing the hose and getting in there with a piece of wire. Clue: If your wand is sucking fine, but not your floor part, odds are you have this problem. You might need a hex screwdriver to get the rear panel off for access; otherwise a simple fix.

My AirVac 3000 stopped working while I was vacumming. The motor runs but it is not sucking. The bag was changed. The panel circuit breaker had not tripped. What could be the problem? Thanks.


You may have a clog in the hose or wand assembley of your accessory kit. Remove the both wands from the accessory and check your suction. If you have suction there the clog is in the wand or the tool you use to clean the floor. If not you have a clog in the hose itself.

The suction works in the wand, but not in the main vacuum


Sounds like you got wraped up in your work..
You need to take the bottom plate off and expose the brush. Once you in side you can unwind the mess. You should change the belt at the same time. Good luck. DFD

Sounds like you have a clog, either in the hose, or the inlet down at the bottom. When there is a clog, the red light will come on and may also shut down to protect the motor.
