Brand new sebo x4 won't turn on. It has never been used.

I purchased a sebo x4, brought it home, plugged it in and it won't turn on. Is there something that has to be done first?

No, and being under Warrenty, take it back to where you bought it and have it looked at. You will void the Warrenty if you do anything to it. One thing to that you can check is make sure that the handle is all the way inserted and locked. The vac. is shipped with the handle not installed and will not turn on if not all the way inserted.

How to remove retention clip on sebo x4 to repair electric cable

Check out Espares video on how to repair and replace cable on the SEBO X1. It is the same machine as the X4, only difference is a different motor and cosmetic differences. I rely on this video and a few of the others that this company have done on You Tube for SEBO repairs.

Don't forget to rate, thanks.

Hi, I've just had my Sebo X4 back from being repaired (motor was growling so Sebo replaced it FOC under warranty) however, the replacement motor is 1000 watts. I queried this with Sebo, as they c

Watt= volts x amps So what are you losing? Not much really. Should they replace it with the same motor? Possibly, but you got a free motor out of them. To be honest I think you're splitting hairs on this one. The difference in how much cleaning that sebo will do with one motor vs the other is beyond minimal. The aggressive brushes on that vacuum do 95% of the carpet cleaning and both motors will have no problem turning it at sufficient speed. As far as suction goes I'd be amazed if it was even a noticeable difference. That's an amazing vacuum you bought, I wouldn't worry about it and go on with life.

Good Luck

Brush won't turn

There is a good chance the belt is broken. The reason belts break is because the brush seizes up due to hair wrapping around tight at the ends of brush. Inspect closely with a flash light to check for this.

My sebo x4 extra does not start. There is power but no warning lights are flashing. When I turn the vacuum on there is a continual clicking/buzzing sound.


Eeither motor or servo motor with gear box is seized. Testing is done energizing the motor. Test and repair must be done by a technician. Call the number listed on the owners manual to contact a qualified repairer.

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.

I have many SEBO automatic X4 vacuums with broken foot pedals. I would like to buy 5 foot pedals that I believe the part number is 5059DG can you tell me where to get it

I guess that depends where you live... plenty of spares sources online (google sebo vacuum spares)... otherwise google sebo dealerships in your country/locality.

Sebo X4 is squealing when pulled back. Takes a while after it's been running for this to happen. We changed the roller brush (needed it anyway) but didn't take care of the noise. Could the wheels be...

Yep - we think Sebos are pretty good too. I work at a Sebo sales and repair dealership! The wheels are a good bet - I can't think of anything else that might cause the noise. If in doubt, I suppose you could simply wheel one around for a while when switched off...
