Unlike most vacuum cleaners, the Sebo Felix has two separate motors - one for the suction and one to drive the brush roll - so there are several things to check. You say the hose has suction, so the problem is in the lower part of the machine. First, check that there's no blockage in the base of the machine, then check that the brush roll is actually rotating when the machine's switched on. If there's no blockage and the brush roll is rotating, then the problem is simply that the brush bristles are worn and you need a new brush roll. If the brush roll is not rotating, listen to hear if the motor is running - if it is, then you need a new drive belt. If the motor is not running, there's an electrical problem and you may need professional help. If you need more advice, post a response here and I'll do what I can to help. Good luck!

My dc07i has power to hose but isn't picking up when hovering carpets or hard floors the roller is going round but there is no suction


I would guess that the line is plugged between the pick-up where it goes to the dirt tank. Lots of time when something big gets sucked in, it still lets the dirt in the tank. However over time dirt collects around the wedged object and gradually over time plugs the passage way. It may take a little time to pick out the blockage. You may have to somewhat take it apart. to get at it. This happens to my shop vac a lot.

Carpet brush turning on and off during vacumming


If the problem is only with the brush, and the vacuum motor is working all the time, then the most likely cause is a poor connection between the upper and lower parts of the machine. As you will know, the two parts can be separated easily and (especially if you do that often) the two little flat pins that make the electrical contact can become damaged. So check the pins, and the sockets they fit in to. If they are not visibly damaged, good contact can sometimes be restored by VERY SLIGHTLY bending the pins.
If you are able to check for electrical continuity between the pins in the brush part, then do so. If your machine has done a lot of work it may be that the so-called "carbon brushes" in the motor are worn out and are no longer making good contact so will need to be changed.
I hope this is helpful. If you need more information just post a reply and I'll see what else I can do. Please remember to rate this response. Good luck!

Model #169171 not sucking up dirt


I have the same problem. When I pull the hose out it seems to have plenty of sucking power though. I dont know what the problem is and why it wont pick up much from the carpet. The stuff it does pick up never seems to make it into the canister either.

The vaccum doesn't pick up dirt, it sprays out


There is probably a second or third filter (besides the canister) that needs to be cleaned.
I doubt that it's rotating the wrong direction.

My fantom vacuum stopped sucking stuff up


Most likely there is a clog, either in the 'knuckle' between the power head and the wand, or in the connection where the hose comes into the canister. In either case, unplug the hose and you should plainly see it.

I have a Sebo x1. It will not pick up from the head.


Hi
If the wheel isn't moving when the upright handle is swung down normally then the hydrallic action will be broken. The wheel only adjusts to the carpet when the handle is swung down and the wheel goes to the highest position. HOWEVER if you have large pile / thick carpeting then the X1 will struggle to pick this up as it doesn't cope well with thick carpeting. Sebo's G1 series with a manual adjuster dial is better in that respect. Put back the wheel as normal and check that it is lowering once the handle is unlocked. If it doesn't show up with the lights on the front of the hood showing that the wheel is going down, then its either the carpet thickness or the hydrallic wheel mechanism is broken. Contact Sebo in your country and they can usually send out a line diagram or suggest a repair.
