Question about Sebo Felix Fun Bagged Upright Vacuum
My Sebo Felix carpet brush is turning off and back on during vacumming. Seems like a bad connection. Anyone have any experience with this?
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!

Testimonial: "You confirmed what we suspected. Thanks."
Most common fault on an upright Sebo is the cable where it goes into the handle, very easy fix. Take screw out of handle slide the whole thing down so that it comes apart take the wire out of the terminals and cut about 4 inches of cable off (the fault is normally in the first 4 inches) trim the ends off and re terminate back into cleaner. re assemble handle and test.
I have been working on Sebos for 8 years and this is by far the most common fault i see.
