Sebo Airbelt C2 Cable jammed

How do I take the vacuum cleaner apart to fix this? I've been all over this machine and can't find the tell tale signs where to start even.

Take off the strip that runs around it, then you can get to the casing clips, remove them and the 2 halves come apart.

Thankyou! I also found that I had to remove a single screw in the tools compartment and the piece of tube connecting the top of the unit to the bag compartment in the bottom of the unit before I was able to sepperate the two halves.

Sebo felix belt is broken,taken screws from bottom of vacum but will not come apart


There are actually two belts on your Sebo, one that drives the brush, and the second that attaches to the pulley on one end, and the motor shaft on the other. I'm assuming that the belt you need to replace is probably the brush belt, or the belt that attaches to the brush gear on side, and the pulley on the other.

Here's what you'll need to do:

Step 1. Remove the vacuum bag housing so that you are only working with the power nozzle or the bottom portion of your Sebo, this will make it much easier to work with. Turn the vacuum upside down, and remove only the 5 screws that I have circled in red:

Step 2. After removing the screws on the bottom of the vacuum cleaner, separate the top housing from the lower agitator housing, sometimes it may take putting a flat head screw driver in between the white and grey colored housing and prying them apart.

Step 3. You now have full access to the belts on your machine. It's most likely the belt that wraps around the brush gear rather then the belt that's attached to the motor that's gone bad. I have never replaced the motor belt in 8 years of servicing Sebo vacuums. The easiest way to replace this belt is to loosen the pulley system that the belt wrap around. Unscrew the two screws that hold this pulley in place, and remove the brush drive belt from the pulley, and now you can unwrap it from the brush gear as well now with the extra slack in it. Now, if you've been using your Sebo in your home rather then using it commercially in a business, Sebo actually offers a lifetime belt warranty on their vacuum cleaners. The belt is supposed to last as long as the vacuum, and Sebo will actually cover this repair, both parts and labor as long as the machine is being used in a residential home environment..

Sebo k3 won't vac on carpet...only hard floor


Do you mean the beater bar stops turning and then it doesn't vacuum?
Or it shuts off when you jam it full of carpet? Read the below manual:

Sebo upright vacuum cleaner - Bag full or clog light on constantly when using as an upright but not when using detachment pipe. Bag changed and no sign of blockage. Is this a common fault or does it need...


Hello,

I have actually written an in depth trouble shooting guide on how to find the clog in your Sebo. Since this light is coming on only when you have the wand inserted into the vacuum and are vacuuming the floor, this indicates that your clog is in the bottom of the machine. The link below will explain exactly what you need to do to locate, and clear this clog.

This should be the exact fix your vacuum needs:

Taking off the bumper from A Sebo K1 Airbelt


First, remove the clip at the back of the machine where the airbelt joins (lever it off carefully with a screwdriver). The airbelt is in two parts - the bulky foam strip and a thin material cover. The cover is held in grooves, top and bottom, running all the way round the machine, by two thin plastic strips around which it is wrapped and which just slip into those grooves. The challenge is to get those strips, and the covering material, out without damaging them. Just prise one end out with a small screwdriver and work your way around the machine - it's more a matter of patience than anything else.

My Sebo AirBelt K1 just stopped working


I work with a Sebo dealer (in the UK), where we repair all makes of vacuum cleaner. It's testimony to the quality of Sebos that in several years I've only had one of this model to repair (so my memory is somewhat sketchy). However, from first principles, the finger of suspicion points to two likely causes of this problem. First, the copper wire may have broken within the flex - this commonly happens where the flex is subject to both stress and tight bending, which is the two extremities (where the flex enters the plug, and where the flex joins the rewind reel). You will need a continuity tester of some kind to check this, of course. The flex may be visibly damaged, but often there's nothing visible externally. Second possibility is that one or both of the motor's carbon brushes is worn out. You will need to get them off the motor to check. Check both - they can sometimes wear very unequally - a new one will have about 2cm of carbon exposable, whereas a worn one can have nothing left at all. As for what's economically replaceable... it depends what you can do for yourself. In the UK a new flex complete with rewind reel will set you back about £45. However, it is possible just to wire in a length of new flex provided you make sure that any connection you make is good, safe and not subject to stress from winding and unwinding. As for the carbon brushes, in the UK they are about £5 each. For a complete new motor you'll not get much change from £100.
I hope this helps. If you need me to try again just post a reply, giving any more information you can, and I'll see what I can do. Good luck!

I have a Sebo air belt K1 How do you open the outer casing so as to replace the electric cable.


OK, but be warned... it's not so difficult getting the thing apart, but making a neat job of reassembly has been known to drive grown men to despair. And that's because you have to remove the airbelt. But first things first:
1. remove the hose
2. remove the hose-retaining ring
3. remove the flap that covers the green filter.
4. remove the screw beneath that flap nearest to the handle (there's a deeply recessed screw on the other side, but you can ignore that)
5. remove the clip at the back of the machine where the airbelt joins (lever it off carefully with a screwdriver)
6. this is where it begins to get interesting. The airbelt is in two parts - the bulky foam strip and a thin material cover. The cover is held in grooves, top and bottom, running all the way round the machine, by two thin plastic strips around which it is wrapped and which just slip into those grooves. The first challenge is to get those strips, and the covering material, out without damaging them. Just prise one end out with a small screwdriver and work your way around the machine - it's more a matter of patience than anything else. (The second challenge is getting it back neatly!)
7. remove the ends of the foam strip far enough to reveal two plastic clips that hold top and bottom of the body together
8. prise those clips off with a screwdriver.
9. it should now be possible to lift the top cover off. It can be a bit fiddly getting it off over the neck where the hose plugs in, but it does come off.
10. the cable rewind spool is now revealed in all its glory.
11. if you've found my advice helpful so far, here's a final piece... don't try to fit a new cable to the old spool - fit a complete new spool.
12. good luck!

I value feedback, so please remember to rate this response.

Central vacuum cleaner problem


Fasco has been out of business for several years. The motors are still available. You will need to find the model number off your old unit. Once you have that model number you can find the replacement motor at one of these websites.
