OK, here goes... NOTE - any use of the words LEFT and RIGHT assume that you are looking from the FRONT of the machine. NOTE ALSO - the machine has two toothed belts, it makes sense to change both while you're at it.
STEP 1. Separate the base from the bag compartment: press the button at bottom front centre of bag compartment and lift bag compartment upwards away from base. Sometimes this is quite stiff and four hands would be useful, you can lever it from behind with something relatively soft (the plastic handle of a dishwash brush works well) but take care to lift vertically upwards, not sideways or you risk bending a metal lever that's hard to get back into shape again. Rest assured that once you've pressed that button there is nothing holding the two parts together other than friction!
STEP 2. Turn the base upside-down and undo the FOUR DEEPLY-RECESSED SCREWS. All the surface-mounted screws are irrelevant to this job.
STEP 3. Turn the complete base right-way up, release the foot pedal and move the vacuum tubes out of vertical. The top cover will then lift off. You will see there are two belts - the pulley device between the motor and the brush roller is the sensor that measures the drag on the brushes and operates the automatic height adjuster to maintain constant drag. To the left of that double pulley is the electronic circuit board - note that it has a sensor that locates within the pulley device, be careful not to damage it.
STEP 4. At the right end of the motor cover, the drive cog is concealed by a small cover. Lift this cover out vertically, noting how it locates in the frame for when you come to put it back. Next, although not essential, it helps to remove the metal lever because if it falls out when you're not looking you may later be uncertain about how to locate the small coil spring. So slide that lever out towards the motor, noting how the spring locates.
STEP 5. Undo the two screws holding the circuit board (take care the washers don't slip away). Then undo the four screws holding the double pulley. Once that's free, you'll be able to change the belts.
Re-assembly is simply the reverse of the above process.
If you need more help, just ask. I value your feedback, so please remember to rate this response.

Hi. I have a Sebo X1 about 12 years old. Last time I used it there was an unpleasant smell in the room but didn't seem to be coming from the Sebo. However I am now trying to use it and it doesn't work. The...


The unpleasant smell could have been the lifetime belt finally giving up. Also happened on our 13 year SEBO X1 Automatic due to my error of vacuuming up a rug with long loose strands! If you are good with a screwdriver, you can replace the drive belt easily enough - go onto You Tube - there is an excellent UK video showing how to replace the drive belt on the SEBO. There are two belts, but you will know which one has to be replaced if you remove the screws on the underside of the main floor head. Before you do anything, kneel on the floor beside the SEBO and press the main release button on the bottom of the front bin area just above the floor head. It may need brute force but when pressed, put on knee on the floor head gently and pull the bin upwards to release from the body of the SEBO. This unlocks the main floor head from the bin, making it easier to look at the floor head. See video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOPphVcZHYA

Our Sebo Automatic x1 will now only pick up with nozzle. Hight adjustment doesn't seem to operate and no green lights display. No blockage found, roller works okay. Help! Wife becoming v. angry.


The belt on the motor shaft is probably slipping off. I have the same problem and that's what I saw when I opened the vacuum. I keep putting the belt back, but it slips off again. The belts aren't supposed to stretch. I am going to call Sebo and take mine to an authorized service place to make sure that it is just a stretched belt.

Sebo automatic X1. After switching on the motor


As sure as possible without actually seeing your machine, the carbon brushes on the motor are worn out. They are quite easy to replace (and not expensive). If you need help with doing the job, just post a reply here and I'll guide you as best I can. If you choose to have a professional do it for you, it should take no more than half an hour's labour.
I hope this has been helpful - please remember to score me! Good luck!
