You will need to remove the gears cover from the cleaning head module and remove all debris found inside.

My model F5906-900 --- problem is the brushes have stoped working... I pulled the brush assembly out by holding the two tabs, and all seems clean and the brush assembly rotates easly... onced the brush...


(1) Assure the Brush Control on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.
(2) Remove the brush assembly by pulling/unlatching it from base on each side.
(3) Does one of the brushes have the drive pin present? It should be about ¼ inch square, and two inches long. It attaches the brushes to the drive mechanism.
(4) Remove and clean the intake filter. One the base of the cleaner, behind the brushes, squeeze the two red abs together and pull the panel down to access the screen. Clean the hair/debris off the screen and reassemble.

Sebo Automatic X1 vacuum 'check brush' light on


I work in a Sebo agency, where we sell and repair Sebos - although they're so reliable we don't get that many to repair.  What's "automatic" about this machine is that it automatically adjusts the brush height so that it's ideal for whatever floor it's on.  It does that by sensing the amount of drag on the brush.  On a wood floor, there's much less drag than on a carpet, so the machine lowers the brush as far as possible to get the optimum drag.  After a while (4 1/2 years in your case) the brush has worn so far that the machine can no longer get it down low enough to brush the floor effectively. That's why the light comes on.  There's still plenty of bristle to do a good job on carpet but, if you want to do the best job on your wood floors too, you need a new brush roller.  Change the brush roller, and you'll probably feel the suction's improved too!
Any questions, just post a comment and I'll help if I can.  I value your feedback so please remember to rate this response.
Good luck!

Spin brush not working anymore.


Is the shaft still on the brush block, if it broke off, then replace the block. if it is ok, then the turbine(#13) is most likely the problem. It is what drives the brushs. You may be able to take the turbine apart and clean it, if that doesn't work the replace it.

Kirby Ultimate G will not suck with main brush head attachment


You may need a new belt, it may have stretched enough so it isn't turning the brush roll anymore.

Doesn't seem to pick up little articles anymore


You have to turn the filter, there is a knob on the tank lid that you turn to help clean the filter. If the filter looks pretty clogged, then it needs to be replaced, or cleaned if it is one of the washable ones. You could have a clog in the hose, or down below where the brush roll is the inlet where the dirt first comes in. Is the brush turning? You may need to replace the belt and/or brushroll. Down in the noozle asm, there also is a vale that will open and close depending on the handle position, it may not be working so it seems like no suction when you do the floor.

The brushes have stopped moving, what can I do? The machine still works, sucks etc. Just doesn's scrub anymore.


You should check the intake screen on the turbine. On some models it is located behind the glass window just above the circular indicator that spins with the brushes. On other models, it is located on the underside of the machine just behind the brush block assy. It is housed in a bright orange/red cassette that is only partially visible until you pull it out. This screen is responsible for keeping debris out of the trubine but will restrict airflow when clogged and the brushes will stop.
Otherwise, the bearings in the trubine may be rusted and siezed from water entering the turbine in which case, the turbine would have to be removed, dissmantled and repaired or in extreme cases, replaced. I have repaired many in my shop but some have to be replaced.
