Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

On my Sebo Airbelt C3, I can't open the dust bag compartment. It's jammed shut. The handle doesn't seem to be able to shift the mechanism inside.

    Thank you very much. I used spray lubricant containing Teflon, with long nozzle to penetrate. With a little while working the handle it gradually opened. I've now lubricated the mechanism inside. Thanks again!

Try spraying some furniture polish into the release handle. maybe just dust preventing it from opening and the wax and get in there and clean out the dust. Other then that, you will have to just keep working it until it opens.

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:

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.

How do you cheng the filter


The Sebo X1 has 2 filters. Both should be changed once for every 20 bag changes. The long cylindrical filter in the bag compartment just slides out to the front - grab the little handle at the bottom and pull forwards - it can be a bit stuck, so you may need to lever it out with a screwdriver or similar. When you put the new one in, make sure you push the little metal lever back up behind it (this is just a simple device to prevent you from shutting the bag compartment when there's no filter present).
To find the second filter, release the foot pedal and lie the handle flat on the floor. This exposes a square panel with lots of small holes in it. Release that panel by squeezing the clip, lift it off and pull the foam filter out. Just drop the new one in and replace the cover, pushing it until it clicks into place. Job done!

1.If your sebo is less than five years old, you have a reciept, and are not using it commercially, in most cases this machine will still be under factory warranty. To locate
an authorized sebo dealer simply call sebo or use the dealer locator on their website.

2. If it is no longer under warranty:
First i would pick up something small such as a balled up gum wrapper and make sure it makes it to the bag, more often than not something is not checked, and its still plugged. Heres how i'd check for plugs.
  • Pull the wand out and remove it from the hose by pressing the button on the wand look through the wand
  • Remove the hose from the machine by pinching the hose clamp and pulling the hose out (it simply presses back in when you are done)
  • press on the large button below the bag compartment on the front. (its often a different color and presses difficultly) lift the bag compartment and handle off the powerhead. (replace by simply pressing the bag compartment back onto the head)
  • look down the powerhead and inspect the other areas of the bag compartment.
  • open the orange/gray door on the bottom of the powerhead and look through checking for debris.
Simply go back up through the steps to reassemble.

If your test makes it into the bag just fine and you are not plugged, the tall filter inside the bag compartment would be my next suggestion and since you changed this it should not be a problem. This leaves few possible problems. Circut board error/Sensor error would be my next step. Essentally its one in the same, but there is no great way to test them without simply replacing parts. (an expensive proposition) The local sebo dealer will more than likely have a working used board they pop in and out to check for problems. Some dealers may let you use these others will require you either buy the parts or pay for labor.

*Bad boards in sebo/windsor products are extremely rare, my bet is always on a plugged filter or plug in general. Be sure to look carefully something as small as a toothpick surrounded by carpet fuzz can set them off.

Best of Luck

Sebo Automatic X1 vacuum cleaner doesn't produce much suction.


If the motor really is working, the problem is most likely to be that there's a blockage somewhere, and on this excellent vacuum cleaner there aren't too many places to look. You've probably already looked in the inspection flap on the underside. If not, that's the first place to look. Next is to separate the bag compartment from the base of the machine (press and hold the button at bottom front of bag compartment and just pull the two sections apart - if this hasn't been done for some time, a gentle levering with something like the plastic handle of a dish brush can help). Then look down the rearmost vacuum tube to check that it's clear, also make sure the little sieve on the other tube is clear. That's all for the base section. Now open the bag compartment, remove the bag and check that tube all the way through the hose.
Another possibility is air leakage, and it does happen on older machines that the plastic tube onto which the attachments fit becomes so worn that it no longer seals properly in the hole in the base (where it lives for normal floor vacuuming).  You could also have split in the flexible hose, of course.

If none of this reveals a problem, the motor probably isn't as healthy as you think it is.
I hope this helps. Any questions, just post again and I'll see what more I can do.  I value your feedback, so please rate this response.

My sebo airbelt k2 won't start


Hi It could be two things = one problem is that the cord in Sebo's K model has a bad habit of shearing thanks to its auto pull rewind mechanism. This would have to be replaced by a Sebo repairer.
Or it could be the actual electric socket if the bonded plug is loose - if there are wires visible at the end of the plug then the plug would have to be replaced. Its a common fault on Sebo's K models when the power stops thanks to shearing cords.

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