The light for a full bag came on but the bag was half full. I know my sebo can be taken apart but I lost the manual and I can't figure out how some piece come apart. I finally got the hose disconnected and it was plugged. I ermoved the plug of dirt, tape etc. and now it works.

First, pull out the hose, turn the unit on, check for an obstruction in the hose. (unclog and obstruction)
Separate the body from power nozzle. Check for obstruction in the air hole passage.
Pull and clean both filters in the unit. The inside white long carriage and the exhaust filter located above indicator panel. (nozzle body)
If this is not working. think about where and how dirt is carried or passes from the front floor nozzle or through the hose.Somewhere in the unit the it is clogged. The red light censers a full bag (we know that's not the issue) or an obstruction to the normal air flow.

In closing: I've been selling and repairing vacuums for over 30 years. Of all the 5 major brands that I sell. Sebo is by far the, best product on the market.
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.
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.
The full bag light comes on when it is getting full or a blockage in the hose or the dirt inlet by the brush roll. Other then that, there is a circuit board called the computer controller, part #5740ER and is giving you a false reading and causing a shut down.
Take the hose off and see if the light is still on or is it off. If it is off, then there is a clog in the hose. While the hose is off, drop something thru it and see if it comes out the other end. Press the retaining clip and the hose will disconnect. Separate the power head from the handle unit to make sure there is no clog by the brush roll. If it is still on then probably the computer controller, part # 5740ER has a problem. It is located in the power head.
