Question about Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged Upright Vacuum
It's possible you have a broken belt, although Sebo belts usually last at least 10 years and often much longer. The first (and easiest) thing to do is remove the brush roll and check that it's not damaged where it mounts on the metal drive spindle. If that's OK, place the machine in a position where you can see the drive spindle then, keeping fingers and clothing well clear, switch on and check if the drive spindle rotates. If a belt is broken, the spindle will (of course) not rotate. The ultimate check is to take the cover off and have a look. To do that, first separate the bag compartment from the base, then turn the base upside down and undo the four deeply-recessed screws. Turn the base over, move the suction tubes out of vertical and just lift the cover off. The belts will be exposed and all will become clear (or possibly not!).
